Every year the Minnesota State Fair puts together a pretty incredible lineup of entertainers to keep our toes tapping and our minds creating memories for a lifetime. I have fond memories of Huey Lewis and The News, Alabama, Toby Keith and so many more that have entertained us from the Grandstand at the great Minnesota Get-together.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
