The 35 Greatest Memes From 2000 to 2009
There was a time when memes were unheard of by the majority of folks - the 00s, to be precise.
Tucked away in seedy little corners of the internet (that's right, we've seen your old Hotmail inbox), the original memes were weird little oddities, inside jokes that you had to be on the very inside to get. Or just riotously funny videos and pictures - we weren't fussy back then.
There were many hundreds of memes, but not every meme is born equal. So, in no particular ranking or order, here are the best memes from 2000 to 2009.
