MassivelyOP’s 2019 Golden Yachties: Schlag meme of the year


MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards end today with our pick for Schlag meme of the year. For those who never dip down into the comments, just know that Schlag Sweetleaf is our resident comment trickster, who somehow manages to say with his custom memes what so many people are thinking.

And the 2017 winner, “Being Uncle Owen”:


And 2018:


Man, I still think Uncle Owen is my favorite of all time. But I would, wouldn’t I? Hearts to you, Schlag! You are amazing.
