List Rules Vote up the memes that give you all the lulz.

Memes start out as one thing and take on a life of their own, whether they wind up connected to another prevailing theme in popular culture or creating a trend of their own. The trends of 2018 are certainly reflected in 2018's best memes, which highlight some of the funniest and most memorable moments of the year. The best memes of 2018 range from a singing child in a department store to an animated "pigeon" to an extremely frustrated professional athlete. Just like 2018, today's most popular memes reflect a glitching simulation. At least people know what to do with these glitches.

When you're done laughing at 2018's memes, go see what has gone hilariously viral in 2019.
