CNN takes a fun look at 10 classic Internet memes

As the Internet hits its 25th year, CNN has gone back and taken a look at some of its funniest - and oddest  - memes.

Memes are those odd jokes, videos and pictures that light up email inboxes and Facebook feeds from time to time. And they go way back. Remember Rickrolling? The Hamster Dance? LOLcats?

Roll back the years and take a look at 10 classic Internet memes.
