The 25 Best Adventist memes of 2012

Memes. Oh, memes...

2012 definitely flooded our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds with those pictures.

In case you you don't know what a meme is (we won't judge you), a meme is "an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture," according to the dictionary.

Well, soon people started creating memes about Seventh-day Adventist culture in North America.

These memes —part humor, part commentary, and part self-reflection— gave us a chance to look at ourselves and laugh.

And while you may be as tired of memes (as we are), we thought we'd take one last look at some of our favorite Adventist memes of 2012 (give or take a few days).

So here are our favorites, in no particular order. Credit for each meme can be found beneath each image. At the bottom of the post, vote for your favorite meme. Enjoy!
