He was just eating a sandwich on a park bench. But after a photo of a dejected-looking Keanu Reeves surfaced online, the "Sad Keanu" meme was born. He was Photoshopped into album covers, photos with Jersey Shore cast members and even into Mad Men star Christina Hendricks's cleavage. Thousands of Internet fans rallied behind the actor, proclaiming June 15 "Cheer Up Keanu Day." And it seemed to work! "It sounds like harmless, good clean fun," he told New York magazine.

Keanu was sad, but Leonardo DiCaprio was happy. Very, very happy. This shot of the actor, merrily strutting on the set of Inception, swept the Internet, with the actor popping up in scenes from Zoolander, The Human Centipede, and, of course, Titanic, where he jauntily struts away while the ship sinks.

This wannabe broker (who once appeared on PEOPLE.com as an Angelina Jolie look-alike!) emailed her entire office 33 photos outlining her reasons for quitting on a dry-erase board. The problem? Her boss: Aside from his bad breath, he apparently called her a "hot piece of a–" and spent nearly 20 hours a week on Farmville. The only other problem: The entire thing was a hoax.

A photo of Tiger Woods missing a shot at the Ryder Cup made the rounds this year – but it wasn't because of the embattled golfer. No, the glory all went to Cigar Guy, a turban-wearing, cigar-chomping mustachioed man standing to the far right. Cigar Guy was soon Photoshopped into famous sports moments – even replacing all the faces in the original photo in what's called a. So, who is Cigar Guy? Rupesh Shingadia, who donned the costume in honor of Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez.
