15 Memes That Perfectly Sum Up 2016

Here we are at the end of another year, and can I just say…adios, 2016. Don’t let the door hit ya. The high points in this year weren’t very high, and they were few and far between. Racial, political and religious divisions seem like they’re at an all-time high, and violence seems to be everywhere. The presidential race was easily the most contentious and exhausting in recent history. By the end of it, neighbor was pitted against neighbor and family against family.

Here in Texas, we lost five Dallas police officers in a targeted attack. Another 50 people were killed in Orlando in the worst mass shooting ever in the United States. Furthermore, in Nice, France 86 people were killed in a terror attack. The Zika virus made its way into Miami, and Ryan Lochte got drunk and made an ass of himself at the Rio Olympics. On top of that, we lost Merle Haggard, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, Glenn Frey and Gene Wilder and several other cultural icons.

It’s at times like these that we look to the future, in hopes that 2017 will bring unity, prosperity and love. So let’s all burn our 2016 calendars in a giant new years conflagration and ring in 2017 by saying &*%# you, 2016.

You and me both, Scott.

All of us on December 31st:

Can we just start over?

Surely all the Zika was washed away by whatever was in the green pool.

2016 is the Voldemort of years.

And that was only June.

Just stop it, already!

No, that’s how you fix a wet iPhone.

Even the Keep Calm meme can’t keep calm.
