20 Animal Memes

From Grumpy Cats to Flirting Pandas

— December 23, 2012 — Pop Culture
With the rise of social networks like Instagram, animal memes have become a consistent viral phenomenon.

For those who don't know, a meme is defined as "An element of a culture or behavior that may be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means."

Memes in and of themselves can often be hilarious. Some of the best memes use celebrities or political figures as their subjects. However, animal memes are often pure gold. Animal memes are usually funny because animals obviously can't talk for themselves, therefore assigning them attitudes and opinions via the meme's text personifies them.

The Grumpy Cat became world famous because his naturally frowning face was ripe for hilarious commentary. For some reason, cats seem to be a particularly attractive subject for animal memes.
