The Top 10 Viral Images of 2010

None of them have the poignancy or compositional skill of TIME’s top 10 pictures of 2010, but these images may have turned more heads. On the viral Web at least.

The image-hosting site Imgur, repository of all things meme-y and click-y, put together a list of the top 10 images it hosted during the past year. The top spot, unsurprisingly, belongs to Sad Keanu, whose apparent existential crisis inspired a series of gleeful Web takeoffs (tracked by TIME’s Claire Suddath in a June writeup.) There’s another familiar face on the list – the iconic “I’m with Coco” poster garnered enough views to hit the chart at number 10.

A sentimental favorite? The one-off Web comic Dog, by Enzo, which encouraged some 500,000 people to not take their puppies (or pets) for granted.

But we’ll admit – some entries on the list even NewsFeed missed. We’ll agree that this is a pretty clever bit of maternity clothes and we’ll share in the view that piracy warnings get annoying. But really, more than anything, this list has inspired a New Year’s resolution from us: Get invited to this dude’s party.

This same disgusting brazen thievery of lost property is standard operating procedure at the Port Authority Bus Terminal's Lost & Found Dept. in NYC by Port Authority Supervisors. Google “Donna Lebourne abc news" & see the vile face of shame being confronted & exposed for the world to see.

Also Google Google “found, stolen, trashed by PA.”

Port Authority Supervisor Donna Lebourne has an outside job, she is the Vice President of her & her husband’s charity Caribbean Sports International that donates cellphones & other electronics. If you lost an item at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and did not get it back, contact her home-based charity, perhaps she may donate your item back to you out of the kindness of her cold evil heart. It's very easy to be charitable when you are giving away someone else's property.

What I find surprising is that people actually put valuables in their luggage that gets "checked in"?

@alma7lou  The bigger problem is we are no longer allowed to lock our luggage per TSA. Strikes me the same as telling everybody to not lock your home.


Yes people should be cognizant to minimize what can be stolen, but in the same breath one can't put everything important as carry on.
