I'll be honest: Memes are basically my favorite form of Internet communication. They can be comedically perfect, and they also know how to capture all the ridiculousness that pop culture has to offer and whittle it down to a few words affixed over a photo. Surprisingly, memes can be pretty poignant as well.
As it turns out, the biggest stars of Internet memes are animals. There's Grumpy Cat, the crabby kitty who doesn't want anyone to have any fun at all, and Doge, the wide-eyed Shiba Inu with the never ending internal monologue. Animals make great memes because their faces are really expressive - and they also get themselves into any number of photographable situations.
Below are 27 animal memes that will definitely put a smile on your face. #17 is basically perfect.
