A sloth walks into a
bar mansion in pursuit of love with an affable virgin, and a girl holding a tray of Fiji water bottles captivates a nation with her smouldering smize. Kanye West holds a Sunday Service on a hill at Coachella, and it looks a lot like . Gen Z upsets an entire generation Teletubbies with the simple “ok boomer.” These are just a few of the best memes of the year, and it’s not even over yet, people!
