17 Of The Funniest Internet Moments Of 2016 You Need To Relive

The internet is, perhaps, the greatest place on Earth. Is the internet even on Earth? Who knows, I think it exists beyond time and space. But anyway, a ton of things happened on the internet this year. There was some sad stuff, and, of course, some things that were weird AF. But, all in all, the internet was pretty hilarious this year. Maybe it’s because everything IRL was, how do I put this, awful, but we all really needed to laugh every once in a while. And when you need to laugh, what do you do? Head to social media, of course.

I do like to think that Twitter was the real MVP of 2016, but let’s not rule out all of the hilarious things that happened everywhere else. I, for one, am still mourning the loss of the funniest app of all time (Vine), which will be missed in 2017. Luckily, it was still around in 2016 to give us some of the best internet moments. Vine, along with Instagram and Snapchat, made this year a little less awful, and slightly more bearable, which is pretty important, TBH. If you need a laugh after this TERRIBLE year, check out the funniest internet moments from 2016:
