Drum roll, please.

In celebration of the humble moving image, Giphy has ranked its most commonly used GIFs of 2018.

Pulled from a database of over seven billion images, the following list supports my theory that GIFs do what words can’t. Seriously, what did people do before GIFs? How did they communicate?
