Das NYMag mit einer Meme für jeden Tag des Jahres: The Year in Memes.

Dozens of large and highly productive internet subcultures collided this year with mainstream cultural consumers: “Dat Boi,” the ubiquitous unicycling frog, freed himself from the labyrinths of Tumblr to ride across Facebook and Twitter; Hillary Clinton’s campaign felt compelled to explain “Pepe,” the (relatively) ancient 4chan meme adopted by the alt-right. Memes were no long slightly embarrassing internet in-jokes but essential and omnipresent expressions of culture.

For every day in 2016, Select All has picked one meme that either originated, broke through, or reached its height on that date, and done our best to explain it. (We’ll keep updating through the end of December.) The result is a collection of the best memes of 2016 — the funniest, weirdest, most outrageous, and most viral objects.
