New year, new memes.

The first month of 2017 is already in the books, and it got meme lovers off to a good start. Let’s take a look at the most memorable memes of the month.

Salt Bae:

Ottoman steak 🔪

9.4 million views on an Instagram video. Unbelievable. This Turkish chef took the internet by storm because of the way he sprinkles salt onto a steak. It led to some pretty brilliant memes. But don’t take our word for it. See below.

Italian memes:

If we want to get technical, memes of this nature were made for more countries than Italy, but they were primarily about Italy. Kinda tough to explain this one, but you’ll get it when you see it.

Cash me ousside, how bow dah?

This is yet another meme that has taken over the internet. It’s caught the attention of not just meme fans, but pretty much anyone with a social media account. Here’s the original video from Doctor Phil for reference.

The video’s been on YouTube since September, but for some reason, it just started to blow up in January. It led to countless memes. Here are a few.
