A form of madness gripped the country this year. This hellish year, 2018, has inspired the sheer deluge of online creativity. Fed and watered by criticism and chaos, memes on the internet grew strong and flowered. Among thousands of funny pills that tickled our bones, we found some real beauties – here they are:

February: Priya Prakash Warrior
In February, a seemingly unknown face took over the internet. Right before Valentine’s Day, everyone had found the love of their life in this winking beauty. Priya's expressions where she raises her eyebrows, smiles, winks and blushes in the video, melted many ‘Sakht Laundas’ all over the country. And since everything that goes viral, trollers were quick to turn it into a meme.
March: Anushka Sharma as 'Pari'
As Anushka released the poster of her film, Pari, planning to scare a few, but Tweeple did what they are best at. Fans soon gave the poster the Photoshop treatment and some crazy edits were soon available on the Internet. Many even didn’t spare Anushka’s hubby Virat Kohli and the memes that flooded the social media portals are worth looking at.
April: Thanos Memes
The most powerful supervillain in the Marvel universe couldn’t escape the troll tunnel in April as Avengers: Infinity war released. So here’re some of the hilarious Thanos memes that made us laugh till we dropped!
May: Chai pi lo Aunty
Somavati Mahawar or the ‘Chai Pi Lo’ aunty made her official Instagram debut in May and all hell broke loose. This lady intrigued everyone since she requested everyone to drink tea and nobody knew why. Sooner, we realised that the tea invitation was just the tip of the iceberg though as she had many more hidden talents in her arsenal. The woman became a meme sensation to an extent that if you don’t say ‘chai pilo’ in a tone similar to her, you’re LYING! Watch her funny antics:
June: Daisy Shah as businesswoman
This year on Eid, Salman Khan came up with Race 3 trailer. One particular dialogue from the trailer where Daisy Shah says, “Our business is our business, none of your business” literally cracked up the internet. Twitterati has had a field day trolling the actress and the Salman Khan starrer big time. The quote went down in history when Twitter users made a pseudo account with the name ‘businesswoman’ and Daisy shah’s profile picture.
July: Rahul Gandhi wink
Rahul Gandhi's surprise gesture to hug Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha after his speech during the no-confidence debate and a playful wink had Twitter abuzz in July. Twitter users took no time in drawing a parallel between the Congress president and Malayalam actor Priya Prakash Varrier who became an internet sensation and the Internet lost it in wink vs wink.
