Some people like to measure the passing of time with a calendar. But us? We prefer to use memes. With every new pop culture event, the Internet loves to erupt with witty responses, funny tweets, and creative graphics. So, here we have the best 2023 memes to help us start ticking away through the year.
The only downside is that this method doesn’t do a very good job of helping us remember when to schedule our next dentist appointment.
Save this page and come back to it often to see the latest viral memes and social commentary. It’s like a diary, but way less effort for you, and way more fun. Except for that year you took three whole vacations. What a ride!
The Best 2023 Memes
1. Egg Price Memes
We really wanted to leave inflation behind in 2022, but unfortunately it followed us into the new year. And this time, it came for eggs. Our scrambled, poached, or baked in a cake eggs skyrocketed in price at the beginning of 2023, finally making us wonder if we could actually go vegan. Ah, we just remembered cheese. Never mind.
Now, we can’t put all the blame on inflation. This price hike was largely to do a bout of avian influenza that swept through hens. Somebody get those chicks a mask already!
2. Speaker Of The House Confirmation Vote Memes
Even if you don’t care about politics, you probably heard about the long, exhaustive, and quite frankly, hilarious voting process for the new Speaker of the House. In the grand old year of 2023, it took Congress a whopping 15 times to elect Kevin McCarthy as the new Speaker to succeed Nancy Pelosi.
Like, sure. He won. He can add this new title to his resume, Twitter bio, and Pizza Hut profile. But it does seem a little like getting picked last at recess. Not that we would know, or still hold grudges from.
3. Andrew Tate vs. Greta Thunberg Memes
You might not think that a former professional kickboxer turned social media maniac and an environmental activist have anything in common. But apparently anything can happen in 2023.
There’s no way to explain this that doesn’t sound ridiculous, but Andrew Tate tagged Greta Thunberg in a tweet about his large sports car collection, probably hoping to bait her into an argument about climate change.
Thunberg shot back with a fire tweet suggesting that Tate has the opposite of BDE. That burned him into a fury, and he responded with a ridiculous video of himself just looking like a fool, with a Romanian pizza store box in the shot.

Authorities used this pizza box to find Tate and arrest him, because oh yeah, he was wanted for allegations of sex trafficking.
And then, we got memes. Whew. Can we take a nap now?
4. M&Ms Spokescandies Memes
Last year gave us the green M&M controversy, in which she traded her boots for more modest sneakers. But this year, thanks to Tucker Carlson, M&Ms said screw it all, the candies are gone! And in their place, Maya Rudolph would become the new chocolate brand ambassador.
Can’t we just go back to appreciating these sweet morsels for what they are on the inside, regardless of how they look on the outside? Because other than the blue M&Ms always turning our mouth a different color, they really do all taste the same. Even if you eat them in your bathtub while crying to Taylor Swift. And that’s just special.
