2019 was filled with memes, moments, videos and ideas that we would have thought of as insane 10 years ago. Here are some of the notable internet moments, memes and ideas that went viral, which need no introduction or explanation. Which was your favorite? Or… least favorite?

If I had it my way, we would have just listed off Baby Yoda 12 or 13 times, Sponge Bob Heading out twice, and the lady (Taylor Armstrong of Real House Wives) yelling at the cat at the table a few times. Shout out to Smudge the cat.
