Year in Review — Best of 2012

by

Another year’s end is quickly approaching, and soon we’ll be left with only the sweet memories of some amazing 2012 memes and trends. Here’s our top five memes-turned-products that we loved this year:

1. Undisputed World War Champions

Popularized on reddit, we loved how this t-shirt allowed USA fans to show their patriotism and their sense of humor.

2. Binders Full of Women

After a question about gender equality in the workplace went horribly wrong during the presidential debates, Mitt’s now infamous answer was the source of parody Twitter accounts, riffs on other memes (Ryan “Hey Girl” Gosling), binder creations and giggles for many.

3. Gone Squatchin’

Do you believe? Whether you think roaming wild terrain in search of evidence for the Sasquatch is silly or genius, Bobo’s “Gone Squatchin’” trucker hat has become a sensation and rallying point for Bigfoot believers everywhere.

4. Grumpy Cat

It might have all been due to a kitty underbite, but on gloomy Mondays or moments when we were just “over it,” we loved that Tardar Sauce’s face summed up everything we were thinking.

5. Mayan Calendar End-of-Times Prediction — December 21, 2012

Whether you aren’t surprised or are seriously let down, there’s one thing for sure — we’re still here and 2013 is near. Happy New Year!
