The 30 Memes that Defined the Decade

By

It can be hard to keep up with internet culture. Over the last ten years, millions of memes have come and gone. But some have endured, shifted public thinking, or illustrated poignant moments in time that we will not soon forget. These are those memes. The memes we still reference on the reg. The memes whose origins we can't even pinpoint anymore. The memes that we forgot started out as memes because they've transcended their memedom. These are the memes that when we say goodbye to the 2010s will no doubt remain in our hearts through the 2020s and beyond.

Deal With It (2010)

When those glasses descend from the top of the frame, you know what's going down. It's hard to even think of "deal with it" as a meme because it seems like it's always been there, like Jack Nicholson at the end of The Shining. If you think "deal with it" hasn't earned its place in our culture, well you can just... deal with it.
