2017 has been a year for hilarious memes, viral tweets and internet sensations that you could
practically chart the year’s entire calendar by when each one took over social media. Memes have
become the elixir of life. There’s always something that can be memeable.
Whether it was a screenshot, a GIF, or a heavy dose of sarcasm this year by far had the best memes.

confidence to shout our innermost thoughts.
Everyone of us has atleast one friend who tags us in atleast one meme everyday. Woh hai saccha dosth.
Because its 2017 and everyone is in love with memes and who wouldn’t want to laugh their hearts out
on just a picture that is relatable or a real-life funny joke?
