If you were unconvinced of the Internet's power to sway popular culture, you need only to look at the top March 2015 humor trends, most of which derive from the culture of the web.

Internet phenomena, such as selfies and emojis, translate from the digital realm into the real world with products and apparel that not only poke fun of our obsession with them, but also our reliance on them. The humor is sarcastic, yes, but it is no longer as cynical or as pessimistic as it has been in the past, achieving a much more lighthearted vibe than we've become accustomed to.

Ultimately, the top March 2015 humor trends showcase the Internet's propensity for self-awareness and self-deprecation, albeit in a way that's much more playful and tongue-in-cheek than before.
