KnowYourMeme.com named ‘Doge’ number one in its list of the top best memes of 2013.

The ‘doge’ phenomenon spread across the Internet as people starting adding caption of the ponderous Shiba Inus dog’s inner monologues – usually typed in Comic Sans and written in broken English.

The meme took on a life of its own on the internet, inspiring all sorts of photoshopped images and silly GIFs.
