Top 20 Funniest Memes of 2018 (So Far)

By Sarah Dinon


Tide Pods

This tide pod meme is one of the top funniest memes of 2018The Tide Pods meme started with everyone’s thought that tide pods looked like gushers. We’ve all thought it, but there are the few people that actually decided to eat them. This led to the birth of some of the best memes to appear this year.


This off-ramp meme is one of the top funniest memes of 2018This meme shows the conflict between doing the right thing (going straight) or doing the wrong thing (turning). As you can see, the car suddenly decides to do the worst possible thing they could in the situation and take the off-ramp towards bad decisions.

What’s Your Child Texting About?

What's Your Child Texting About is one of the top funniest memes of 2018This is one of my personal favorites. It highlights how parents misunderstand and blow simple text abbreviations out of proportion. The internet, being the amazing thing it is, took it to the extreme and created memes with themes like tide pods, Olive Garden, and the Walmart yodel boy.

Super Bowl Selfie Kid

Super Bowl Selfie Kid is one of the funniest memes of 2018During Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime performance, he stopped to snap a selfie with Ryan McKenna. Within minutes memes started popping up everywhere laughing at his transfixion on his phone. But he was on Ellen, so it seems like he’s doing pretty well.

Gym Kardashian

Gym Kardashian is one of the top funniest memes of 2018The photoshopping in these memes blows me away. It makes fun of the masculine stereotype while also being a play-on-words with Kim. Overall, very random but solid meme.

Savage Patrick

Savage Patrick is the top funniest meme of 2018This meme is a MOOD. It pairs Patrick’s face with schemes like not doing dishes or canceling plans. It perfectly displays the internal feeling you have when these kinds of things happen.

Jennifer Garner Clapping At The Oscars

Jennifer Garner At The Oscars is one of the top funniest memes of 2018For some reason, when Jennifer Garner was clapping at the Oscars she completely stopped and looked terrified. The internet ATE. IT. UP. They quickly compared her random mood change to different scenarios we’ve all experienced.

Krusty Krab vs. Chum Bucket

Krusty Krab vs. Chum Bucket is one of the top funniest memes of 2018This is the 2018 version of hot or not, hot being the Krusty Krab and not being the Chum Bucket. It brings us back to the good old days of Spongebob while settling some very relevant debates like Spotify versus iTunes.

LeBron James and J.R. Smith

LeBron James and J.R. Smith are one of the top funniest memes of 2018LeBron’s face screams betrayal. This meme comes from the NBA Finals when J.R. Smith didn’t pass the ball to James. It basically describes the phrase “wtf.”


This Fortnite meme is one of the top funniest memes of 2018The Fortnite obsession is real and with obsessions comes memes. I don’t even play Fortnite and these memes were still hilarious to me. It adds a fun twist to a game people take way too seriously sometimes 😉

Walmart Yodel Boy

Walmart Yodel Boy is one of the funniest memes of 2018MASON. RAMSEY. Probably the biggest legend of 2018. His rendition of “Lovesick Blues” went viral because he was belting it out in Walmart, of all places. Now he’s loved by almost everyone and is having the time of his life. Also, if you want a good pump-up tune, look up a dubstep version… You won’t regret it.

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg is one of the funniest memes of 2018This is a personal favorite. After Mark Zuckerberg’s awkward Congressional Hearing, the internet has a field day. They joked about Zuckerberg’s reliance to fully answer questions and Facebook’s excessive knowledge on their users. Glad we could turn a bad situation into hilarious memes.

Laurel or Yanny

Laurel or Yanny is one of the funniest memes of 2018This meme originated from a recording where everyone either heard Laurel or Yanny. It’s basically the audio version of “The Dress” meme from a couple years ago (I always saw white and gold). I don’t think anyone really knows what the recording says but that’s ok let’s keep the mystery alive.

Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding is one of the funniest memes of 2018The Royal Wedding took the world by storm. We’re all obsessed with the Royal Family whether we know it or not. Either way, the big day created a media frenzy which inevitably led to a meme frenzy.

Michaela Coel Smirk – Black Mirror

This Black Mirror meme is one of the funniest memes of 2018Michaela Coel’s smirk on an episode of Black Mirror created one of the best memes of the year. The sly smirk is the epitome of sass and scheming. This meme just makes me want to gossip.

Google Arts and Culture Selfies

Google Arts and Culture Selfies memes are some of the funniest memes of 2018These are hilarious. If you’ve ever tried Google Arts and Culture selfies you know that the app was probably created to make you feel ugly. If you haven’t, the basic idea is that you take a selfie and it finds your resemblance to a painting. Every result I got felt like a personal insult. Regardless, the internet had a field day with these and made some unforgettable memes.

Change My Mind

This Change My Mind meme is one of the funniest memes of 2018This man in this meme presented an idea and asked viewers to “change my mind.” The meme basically wrote itself. Amazing people created amazing topics of discussion, and here we are.

Pregnant Kylie Jenner

Pregnant Kylie Jenner is one of the funniest memes of 2018The birth of Kylie Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, was one of the biggest reveals of the year. Century maybe. After going into hiding, Kylie posted a sweet video that took fans along with her pregnancy. Then the memes started rolling in, making a joke about hot things guys do that can lead to…  ya know.

Smug Cheerleader

This Smug Cheerleader meme is one of the funniest memes of 2018The sassiest meme I think I have ever seen. Ryan Cummings, a competitive cheerleader, made the most legendary smug look before a routine. The internet turned it into the ultimate judging-you meme. I watched the routine and honestly, I’d make that face too. It was bomb!

Confused Cardi B

Confused Cardi B is one of the top funniest memes of 2018Confused Cardi B is all of us in an awkward situation. It’s the face we make when we honestly don’t know what to do. It embodies skepticism, confusion, discomfort, and annoyance all in one beautiful, amazing picture.
