The meme. It first appeared around 3500 BC when some wag drew an eagle on a sarcophagus, and before long the same eagle was appearing in various guises on Egyptian comment threads everywhere.

Memes are the catchphrases of our time – they get funnier every time. Work life? Relationships? Donald Trump? There’s a meme to sum up everything (and if by any chance there isn’t, you can always make a new one).

Skateboarding, of course, is not immune. Why make a reasoned Facebook argument about the latest full-length video when can say it with a sarcastic screengrab from Game of Thrones?

So without further ado, here are some we've found on our internet travels.
