Greatest Internet Memes of 2012

List Criteria: Only memes that began or originated in 2012

The greatest Internet memes of 2012 kept us laughing, made us cringe and gave us fun ways to comment on life as they popped up on Reddit, in our Facebook feeds and on other sites during the year. These funny Internet memes introduced us to quirky characters like the Ridiculously Photogenic Guy Zeddie Little, the Ermahgerd Berks girl, Bad Luck Brian and of course the dreaded Overly Attached Girlfriend, plus brought in new Advice Animals, complete with horrible guidance that no one should ever take. Lawyer Dog, we're looking at you.

Like the greatest Internet memes of 2011, the top 2012 Internet memes allowed us to poke fun at those people we all know, whether they are like the Almost Politically Correct Redneck spewing obliviously racist statements, the Forever Resentful Mother reminding us how many hours she was in labor with us or the Annoyed Picard who was a favorite for his versatility to comment on anything at all.

Plenty of familiar faces ended up in image macro memes during 2012 as well with the 2012 Summer Olympics and United States presidential election dominating the news cycles. Between Relatable Romney talking about how he's just like poor people to Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney being not impressed by pretty impressive things to the hilarious Texts from Hillary Clinton.

So move over Scumbag Steve, there's a whole new bunch of Internet memes ready to take over our bandwidth.
