2016 will be the year history teachers will skip teaching in the future. We simply do not talk about 2016. I mean, you know the year is shitty when Donald Trump gets named Person of the Year…and then complains that it should be “Man of the Year”. Here are a few of the ridiculous moments we experienced together.


1. Everyone cool died.



RIP Prince, Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Gene Wilder, Anton Yelchin, Muhammad Ali, Alan Rickman, AND George Michael.



2. Donald Trump is President



Ya’ll knew this was coming, so let’s just get it out of the way. When a racist, sexist, idiot, misogynist, sexual offender becomes the president elect of one of world’s most powerful countries, you know the world is coming to an end, we hope.



3. The grandkids who never showed up to papaw’s dinner 





Remember when our hearts broke?



4. Brexit actually happened



Remember when we woke up and found out that the United Kingdom had withdrawn from the European Union and the world subsequently lost it?







5. “Damn Daniel” 





I still don’t get what that was all about, but I think we can all agree that it is was annoying AF.



6. Garbage crisis continues in Lebanon…shocker. 



It’s becoming a tradition to be honest. Every now and then, the garbage crisis makes a reappearance.



7. Killer Clowns 





Creepy Killer Clown sightings were being reported extensively in the states, and even made an appearance in Europe. On brand for 2016!


8. The Mannequin Challenge

Why?






9. Myriam Klink got a vote at the Lebanese Presidential Election 



Cringe-worthy.




10. Dabbing



Can someone please explain this? And can it stop?



11. ‘Dicks out for Harambe’ 





Harambe was a Cincinnati Zoo gorilla who was shot dead after a 3-year-old boy climbed into its enclosure. The news took the internet by storm and caused a lot of controversy. People decided to pull their dicks out of their pants as a sign of respect for Harambe. You know, the logical thing to do of course. 





12. New bubble wrap will no longer pop!



Of course, 2016 will come to an end with the most horrendous announcement of all! A new version of bubble wrap will be released, and it does not pop.



13. Pokémon Go takes over the world.



Remember how annoyingly obsessive people were about this game? We bumped into people staring at their screens countless times, received texts from friends at 3 AM to go catch Pokémon, and just never heard the end of it.


Cheers, 2016.
