“Wow. What an awful year 2016 has been," says everyone always. Everyone except the celebrities, YouTube Stars, and living memes of YouTube’s 2016 Rewind.

This is a packed event filled with references to everything that happened this year, except the really, really bad stuff. Well, there's a reference to Bowie passing, but that's it. It's all good times from here on out. Let’s see what we’ve got here:

  1. The Rock
  2. The guy water bottle flipping guy
  3. PewDiePie
  4. Dude Perfect
  5. Something called “I Had Cupquake”
  6. The dude that does magic but covers his mouth electrical tape
  7. The starts of this thing that has over 2 million views



  8. Seth Meyers
  9. Daniel from Damn, Daniel
  10. Carpool Karaoke
  11. Colorful lighting
  12. Pokémon Go
  13. The Slow Mo Guys
  14. Flash Mobs
  15. MUCH, MUCH MORE

Look if your video went viral last year and you’re not in this thing, it’s time to get a new agent. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Misha. Where you at? 45-million views. WHERE YOU AT?

Like everything on YouTube, it’s a real mix of things that are annoying, entertaining, ridiculously cheery, and downright confusing. But that’s what the internet is about, and honestly, it’s better than the other half of the internet, which is startlingly depressing and usually asking you to protest Star Wars.

In many ways, everyone on the planet would like to never hear the name Harambe again. We get it, ok? Dudes on Reddit think the gorilla getting shot is very funny. The joke is played.

But almost by divine providence, if you will, someone found a new way into the joke.

Reddit user agc4 is now the founder and first member of the Church of Latter Day Harambe, a new holy community that just received approval from the IRS.

As of now, we only have a letter addressed to the founder and not much more information on how to join the church because apparently the founder "lost" the letter. Not a great sign for the new religion.

Another Reddit user chimed in without to create your own church, too.

So as of now, we’re a little light on details about the Church of Latter Day Harambe. Until some more develops, enjoy this clip from Last Week Tonight With John Oliver from the time John started his own church, Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption.

The Awkward Photo of Donald Trump and Mitt Romney Having Dinner Is So Perfect for Making Memes It Almost Feels Like a Set Up

Can you hear that? It's the sound of "Hello, darkness, my old friend." Or is that the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.

Whatever it is, it's the sound of someone giving into a man that they called a "phony" and "fraud." At least, that's the look on Mitt Romney's face as he eats dinner with Donald Trump as he once again interviews for a job in the Trump administration. He looks scared, broken, and maybe, in danger — harkening back to that time just a few months ago when it looked like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was being held hostage by our president-elect.

But don't take my word for it, Twitter has already had a go at captioning the saddest night of Mitt Romney's life — and this guy lost a presidential election.

Check out some of the best reactions to the moment when a million voices inside Mitt Romney cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

What could be better than an endless supply of trump memes? Maybe some of the best of all time? Or perhaps some of the finest highlights from the G7 Summit or simply some of the best reactions to one of his more infamous tweets.

Jeopardy! has been making quite a comeback in the past few months — what with Alex Trebeck rapping and calling his contestants losers and all. But last night, a contestant on Jeopardy!’s Teen Tournament took the gameshow back for the players.

During "Final Jeopardy!," the contestant, Sabrina, didn't stumble when she didn't know the answer. Instead, she shut Jeopardy! down with an Internet-ready response worth all the Daily Doubles in the world. 

Her response to the answer “Roughly half the size of Texas, it's the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space” was...

Forget that the answer is "The Great Barrier Reef" because this is all that matters now. 

And the crowd went wild:

memes pepe hate symbol The Anti-Defamation League Calls the Pepe Meme a Hate Symbol and It Feels Real Bad Man

 The Anti-Defamation League has labeled Pepe the Frog as a hate symbol because white supremacists on the internet have made bigoted versions of Pepe... not as rare as they ought to be. From the ADL website:

In recent years, with the growth of the "alt right" segment of the white supremacist movement, a segment that draws some of its support from some of the above-mentioned Internet sites, the number of "alt right" Pepe memes has grown, a tendency exacerbated by the controversial and contentious 2016 presidential election.  Though Pepe memes have many defenders, not least the character's creator, Matt Furie, who has called the alt right appropriation of the meme merely a "phase," the use of racist and bigoted versions of Pepe memes seems to be increasing, not decreasing.

The Cincinnati Zoo is trying to put the drama of Harambe behind them by asking the Internet to "Stop making memes of our dead gorilla."

So, in honor of the "retirement" of the Harambe Meme, here are some of our favorites:













The zoo might "not be amused," but we sure as hell are! RIP Harambe.

Up until now the rate of disaster in the world seemed to be set at a slow burn, just like the "This is fine" dog's kitchen. Well, as you may have noticed, everything is NOT fine. And this beloved meme/comic has noticed too. The original creator of the meme KC Green, has added an update to this classic.

If you love memes and you love those Apples to Apples clone style card games (think Cards Against Humanity etc) then you're in luck! This new card game takes prewritten text and matches it up with a host of popular meme pictures in a similar style. It's already met $166,108 of it's original $10,000 goal with 13 days to go so this product is obviously in high demand. Can't argue with cash.

Happiest update #2 for the happiest Wookie in the world. The "Happy Chewbacca" lady got to laugh it up with James Corden and J.J. Abrams on The Late Show. At this rate, maybe she'll get a cameo in Episode 8?

Paul Allen Was Absolutely Crushed by Steph Curry's Three Pointer and That Moment Became a Meme

Paul Allen, all around rich guy and owner of the Portland Trail Blazers, was in attendance to see his team lose to the Golden State Warriors. It almost seemed like there was hope for the Blazers until Steph Curry made an effortless looking three point shot. Thankfully, a cameraman caught Paul Allen's expression for the internet to meme at that exact moment.

Donald Trump Said "7-11" When Talking About "9/11" and the Internet Response Did Not Disappoint

Donald Trump was speaking in Buffalo, New York when he referenced September 11, 2001, as you do when you are an American politician. Instead of saying "9/11" though, he accidentally said "7-11". If you thought the internet was just going to let that one go, you were wrong.
