Summer is coming to an end, which means that it's time to look back and reflect on all the totally ridiculous things that happened. And no, we don't mean the time that you camped out for 17 hours and spent the entirety of your bi-monthly paycheck on tickets for Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour. Nor do we mean the time that you dared yourself to drink an entire vodka watermelon at a Fourth of July party. 

We're talking about pop culture, y'all!

This summer was both a great and depressing time for viral stories. A lot of awesome stories floated around the Internet, but there were also a great many things that made us want to hang our heads in shame at this country that we live in. But even the horrifying events (read: Donald Trump) had something to find humor in (read: Donald Trump's hair), which is kind of our modus operandi: To find humor in all the awful Internet trends. 

As such, we're holding a contest to find the best, funniest and most ridiculous viral story of the summer. And we need YOU to vote! Ahead are the 16 finalists, so let's all pick our favorites and start narrowing down a winner. It's the perfect way to close out a cool and also confusing summer.

And remember: Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. Ba-doom-boom.
