The Internet is for cats. This is an indisputable fact.

But in 2013, dogs made a valiant effort for the title of "Internet Animal of Record," thanks to the doge meme, which pairs the "much majesty" thoughts of Shiba Inus over pictures of the often puzzled-looking pooches.

Yep, it's a weird meme. But 2013 was a weird year. Take a look back at what reigned online.

Lea Michele's Tweet Thanking Her Fans Was the Most Retweeted Tweet

Justin Bieber's Photo of "Me and Uncle Will" Was the Most-Liked Photo on Instagram

Biebs had a tough year, but he'll always have Instagram.

Tyler Oakley Proved You Can Be Internet Famous by Being Nice

He's a Tumblr and YouTube superstar. He's clever. He's adorable. He's funny. Everyone loves him. And – shocker! – he doesn't cut people down. On the internet, that's rare.
Also, his interview with One Direction is the cutest damn thing ever.

DiGiorno Pizza, carrots and more kept us LOLing and RTing.
And of course, DiGiorno won the Sound of Music live-Tweeting.
We should note that Taco Bell seems to be in a pseudo-online relationship with Teigen. And they may be actively trying to get her drunk. Not sure.

Everyone Did the Harlem Shake

But no one did it as well as indie superstars Matt & Kim.
