This 2016 Meme Perfectly Captures How Awful the Year Has Been

By many metrics, 2016 has been a train wreck.

A presidential election that has left many seething, disillusioned and confused, shocking celebrity deaths, terrorism, touchy relations with police — the last 12 months are probably not destined to go down as a happy time for a good chunk of the population.

Making it worse is the fact this was a leap year, meaning we had to endure one extra day of this mayhem.

Twitter was certainly not immune to all we experienced in 2016. That’s how this meme in which people compare themselves at the beginning of the year the to end of it came to be. Hurry up and get here, already 2017 — you’re more in demand than the headlining band after the crowd had to sit through a painfully bad warm-up comedian.
