Mexico Provided Us With 5 Great Memes This Year

Although 2016 was a tumultuous year for many people, a few things helped us remember to not take every moment of our lives so seriously. Mexico, our neighbor to the South, knows a thing or two about laughing in the face of tragedy, and Mexico was one of the sources of the most hilarious memes of the year. Let’s recap.

There was Lady100Pesos, the teenage drunk driver who tried to bribe a police officer with 100 pesos (about $6 at the time).

Soon, people were reimagining the 100 peso bill with a new face on it.

There was #LadyCajero, a woman who tried to shield her friend, who was pulling money out from an ATM, with her coat.

Once she went viral, she was seen helping Kim Kardashian cover up a bit.

Next came LaSeñoraLeon, a soccer fan who dressed up as a lion to support her favorite soccer team.

And, of course, she was eventually reimagined as the star of “The Lion King.”

OK, this one happened in 2014, but it still brought a smile to our faces in 2016. Read LaSeñoraLeon’s full story here.

Then there was this reporter from Mexico who apparently didn’t want to get her feet wet during a flood.

Once the photo surfaced, the Internet did what it does best: dragged her by creating the hashtag #LadyReportera and making memes.

We Feel Like We’ve Been Hit By A Truck And Set On Fire And These Tweets Capture That Perfectly

We appreciate the long break, but going back to work today is literally killing us.

Some say they have lots of energy and are ready to get back to work.


Rested, refreshed and ready to get back to the daily hustle.

With this newfound energy comes a whole new attitude.


These people think that everyone at work MUST have missed them over break.

They’re ready to walk through those office doors a little something like this:


*hair flip*

On the flipside, there are those of us who are soooo not ready to go back to work.?


The holiday spirit got us.

And we’ll be arriving to the office like:


More like stumbling in.

Just thinking about replying to all those emails has us feeling like we’re drowning.


SOMEONE SEND HELP. ?

Either drowning or exploding in a pit of fire. ?


There’s nothing in between.

Because trying to keep it together during the first day back at work is mentally and physically impossible. ??


Try again tomorrow.

This is what the office looks like rn:


Literally, a scene from “The Walking Dead.” ???
