If there’s anything that keeps us laughing and entertaining all the time, it is memes. It doesn’t matter where you are, what you’re doing and how sad you are, a meme tag from your friend is enough to lighten up your mood within seconds. On the World Laughter Day, we bring to you a collection of the best memes of 2017, so far, that have kept us rolling on the floor laughing with a hope that there will be more in the coming months. Enjoy.
1. Michelle Obama’s Side-Eye
Donald Trump being elected as the President of the United States wasn’t all that bad. We got a lot out of it. Especially this savage photo of Michelle Obama not looking very pleased with the kind of gift she just received from Melania Trump. What followed was a series of hilarious memes that had us cracking up the whole time, it still does.
2. Salt Bae
A chef from Turkey became an instant internet sensation. Nusret Gokce, popularly known as Salt Bae became the talk of the world because of his unique technique of seasoning meat. We might never know if the food he made is good or not, but Salt Bae definitely has a place in our hearts. Turning that into a meme, Salt Bae was an early gift we received in 2017.
3. Meryl Streep Shouting
A photo of Meryl Streep, the iconic actress who needs no introduction became a meme. Everything Meryl does becomes famous, especially this photo taken at the 2015’s SAG awards cheering on Debbie Reynolds on winning a Lifetime Achievement Award. Emerging as a meme after two years, we’re not going to say it was disappointing as it was worth the wait.
4. Roll Safe
Just as 2017 kicked off, this was the very first meme that emerged on the internet becoming a smash hit. Originally from a BBC, the actor known as Kayode Ewumi (better known as Roll Safe) played a character called Reece Simpson head points turning forever into a meme. Used to give a nonsensical advice, Roll Safe is now a trend that won’t die soon.
5. Oscar Goof Up
At the Academy Awards this year, the biggest goof up in history took place as La La Land was announced the winner in the Best Picture category when it was really won by Moonlight. It was later resolved but the damage had already been caused. Turning into a meme within seconds, the Oscar goof up meme gave us all a reason to laugh our hearts out.
Happy World Laughter Day!
