What's the oldest internet meme you remember?

I think this is mine. The idea that people could pile on and riff off of something like that was an eye-opener!

17. "Ate My Balls" was pretty much the first Internet meme I can remember. '96/'97 was around the time

I started using the Web at school, though we didn't have a connection at home till '99.

16. This is THE classic internet meme - 1993


""On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog" is an adage which began as the caption of a cartoon by Peter Steiner published by The New Yorker on July 5, 1993."

18. I'm a dog.

I first signed onto the internet in 1979 and never left.

If anyone ever finds that picture of me at Mono Lake wearing only a hat...

... damn, I was hot. And salt is itchy.

20. Yeah probably "All your base" or "baby dance" or "hamster dance"...

I never understood why the baby dance thing took off.
