The 30 Funniest Memes of All Time
circle

If it wasn't for memes—you know: quips and images that exist solely for easy entertainment—Facebook wouldn't be entertaining enough to steal that much of your time. Instagram, too, would be little more than selfies and stylized pictures of food. And Twitter? Don't even get us started. In short, the internet would be a joyless void of constant news alerts, questionably reliable research, and self-aggrandizing social media posts without some of the internet's funniest memes.

Fortunately, that's a nightmare you don't have to imagine, thanks to the sole fact that memes are very real. And they're very funny. Herein, we've gathered the funniest memes of all time. Don't worry: We've kept it all SFW. Because if there's one ironclad rule of the internet, it's this: Never hunt for memes on the bad part.

1

If you love dogs, you'll love Doge. It's a shiba inu-inspired meme all about the good boys and rare puppers in your life. It's no wonder he's one of the funniest memes of all time—just look how at how cute he is!

If the guy in this meme looks familiar, that's because it's professional basketball player Nick Young. Whenever someone says something too absurd for words, you can just send them this meme—they'll get the hint.

change my mind memes up and rising. from r/MemeEconomy

Political commentator Steven Crowder set down at a table with a sign challenging people to change his mind, and a fresh meme was born.

If It Fits, I Sits

Cats will be cats from r/IfIFitsISits

The If It Fits, I Sits meme is great for anyone who likes to look at pictures of cats in vessels that can barely contain them—which is to say, it's great for everyone.

12
Classical Art Memes

Eat more fruits from r/classicalartmemes

Classical art memes prove that some human behaviors transcend the borders of time.

13
Distracted Boyfriend

Distracted Boyfriend, AKA Man Looking at Other Woman, is the result of a ridiculous stock photo that took the internet by storm. The meme is pretty self-explanatory: Whatever is distracting you—and shouldn't be—is "the other woman" in the photo.

14
Congratulations, You Played Yourself

Congratulations, you played yourself from r/funny

Sometimes the best way to make a meme is to come up with the most literal, obvious caption possible and then present it like you're brilliant. Case in point: This DJ Khaled meme, which will forever be a classic.

A post shared by 2012 memes (@og_memez2012) on

Futurama Fry is never sure what's right and what's wrong. But when the joke's this good, the answer is both are correct.

16
Condescending Wonka

Fathers, can you relate to this? It's a condescending Wonka meme template meme. from r/OVER30REDDIT

Condescending Wonka is good to pull out whenever somebody is getting a little too big for their britches. It's also good to pull out whenever you want to see Gene Wilder smiling.

17
SpongeBob Memes

ouch. from r/BikiniBottomTwitter

There are no memes on the internet with the same long-term appeal as SpongeBob memes. They are timeless and ageless, just like the guy who lives in a pineapple under the sea.

18
Grumpy Cat

I made a shitty grumpy cat meme to pay respects from r/dankmemes

The world needs a Grumpy Cat to be our mascot every Monday, because Garfield doesn't hate Mondays quite enough for the modern worker.

19
Drunk Baby

Drunk Baby from r/memes

The Drunk Baby meme is a real life saver if you think a drunk baby would be hilarious (as long as you know that it is extremely wrong to get a baby actually drunk in real life).

20
Arthur's Fist

My contribution to Arthur's fist from r/memes

Whenever something makes you mad, you can use the Arthur's Fist meme—easily one of the funniest memes of all time—to properly (and hilariously) express your emotions.

21
Karate Kyle

Karate Kyle from r/masterforgiveme

Good old Karate Kyle loves his vengeance. Fortunately, he looks fairly incapable of exacting revenge of any caliber.

22
Chemistry Cat

Haven't seen Chemistry Cat in awhile… from r/AdviceAnimals

Chemistry Cat is the science nerd equivalent of Business Cat. So if you're wanting to take your puns out of the office and into the lab, he's your kitty.

23
First World Problems

First world problems from r/memes

Every time you get upset at Whole Foods because they don't have your favorite unsweetened iced yerba mate, another First World Problems meme is born.

24
Evil Kermit

Never forget from r/evilkermit


Every light side has a dark side—even Kermit, as evidenced by this series of funny memes.

25
Baby Insanity Wolf

Baby Insanity Wolf lives on the edge [fixed] from r/AdviceAnimals

Actual Insanity Wolf offers extremely violent advice. But Baby Insanity Wolf does things so small that only the person who creates the meme has any idea it even happened.

26
Philosoraptor

Hmmmm?? from r/Philosoraptor

All jokes aside, Philosoraptor makes some good points.

27

28
The Kardashians

Me every night [Picture] (x-post from r/BlackpeopleTwitter) from r/teenagers

The Kardashians have spread themselves all over the internet, so it comes as no surprise that they are the source of many hilarious memes.

29
Am I Out of Touch?

Does anyone else think of Shots, when you see this meme from r/imaginedragons

Principal Skinner's temporary moment of self-doubt is great to have on hand for that one friend on Facebook who disagrees with everyone.

30
Hipster Dog

Hipster Dog needs to find his bone. from r/AdviceAnimals

Hipster Dog stopped liking everything you like before you even heard of it. No big deal.
