As this year comes to an end, the love for memes in Boise does not. Cue the stomachs sore from laughing.


It’s fun to look at all the old and new memes that have graced us with their presence. Of course, there are TikTok trends that have somewhat stolen the viral show. But, we will never lose memes or their luster. 


Boise’s Top Memes of 2021


We asked Boise residents what their Top Memes of 2021 were. And here is what they had to say. Drum roll, please…


LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.


2021 has been a crazy year full of so many ups and downs. Although those were Boise’s Top 50 of this year, we still have some honorable mentions.

New Year, New Memes

As 2021 comes to a close we can’t wait for all the TikTok trends, memes, and viral moments that will happen in 2022!


'Kool Aid Man Challenge' Invades Treasure Valley

We have no idea what is going on in these streets anymore, but recent news reports are showing that a viral TikTok trend has taken to the streets of the Treasure Valley and many are paying the price. If you remember the legendary Kool-Aid Man from back in the day, he would always yell OH YEAH before busting through a wall and pouring up some Kool Aid. This property damage is a far cry from being as fun as the real Kool Aid Man was.
