Another day, another meme...

2018 was a pretty iconic year for memes. Over the course of just twelve months, the internet came up with some of the best memes of all time. From the terrifying (the FBI agent watching you through your webcam meme is amazing but also WTF) to the hilarious (is this a pigeon is a timeless classic) and the downright bizarre (they did surgery on a grape was a thing), 2018 really delivered on the meme front.

However it looks as though 2019 will be equally iconic. We may only be mere days into the new year but, as it stands, we've already been blessed with the guy in pink thigh high boots and the Bird Box memes are still everywhere. The latest meme to come on our radar actually first surfaced at the end of 2018 but is still making big waves now: the straight line, dashed line meme is here and it's going to roast you.

The meme itself is simple. You write "Straight line: ________________", "Dashed line: ___ ___ ___ ___ ___" and then end it with a hilarious line of your own. From iconic lines from films and TV to painfully accurate diagrams of people who use Instagram stories a little bit too much, it's versatile af and one of the funniest things on the internet atm.

Still confused? We've gathered just a few of the best ones for you all in one place.

Some are targeting Instagram girls.

Way harsh Tai.

Boys can be just as guilty.

This is very specific.

Now this is something we can all relate to.

We've all been there.

The meme can be very educational.

This is inspired.

This is one for the scientists out there.

If you know, you know.

Ariana Grande is getting called out.

Toulouse is beautiful and we will appreciate every Toulouse photo Ariana shares with us.

Now this is just rude.

We did not ask to be read like this.

The meme suits songs.

'Sweet Caroline' slaps and we won't hear anything against it.

3OH!3 fans can I get an amen?

Now that was a classic.

One Direction obviously made it's way into the meme.

Hang it in the louvre.

Oh and Kodaline.


Shadowhunters is getting the meme treatment too.

Iconic indeed.

It's the scientists that really made this meme their own though.

We need to log off.
