What would we be doing on the Internet if it wasn’t for cats, reaction videos, and memes? Especially memes. About cats… reacting to things? Anyway, memes are our way to fight the daily monotony, and therefore we must pay tribute to them! We use memes to express emotions, help to highlight a topic more poignantly, and sometimes relay ancient 90’s wisdom with a classic lolcat-era Ceiling Cat meme.

Let’s see what the top 13 most viral memes of all time look like!

Confused Cat
You’ve seen this meme all over the Internet, but did you know that the woman doesn’t really scream at some random cat? These two pics are absolutely unrelated, but the Internet loved the combo so much, it spawned millions of memes.

O RLY?
The sarcastic owl was first noticed saying its iconic “O RLY?” sometime in 2005 on 4chan of all places. In modern days it’s considered a fossil, so almost nobody uses it, but it’s still very fun to say out loud when someone asks you a stupid question.

Rick Astley has been bamboozling people with his hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up” for over 15 years. There were times when clicking on a random link, and getting rickrolled felt worse than getting a nasty trojan virus.
