It's December 29, 2021

Dear readers,

It's the last humpday of 2021. It's been a heck of a year. Just think of all we've gone through in the last 12 months.


It started with an attack on the capital, which was quickly followed by an attack on hedge funds led by a guy named Roaring Kitty and his gang of self-proclaimed apes. 

Seemingly everyone got involved in either SPACs, Dogecoin, or NFTs.

Most of us got Vaxxed, and the world slowly returned to normal... only to be greeted by labor shortages, inflation, and supply chain hold-ups. Remember the Evergiven?

More than one billionaire had a midlife crisis, got divorced, and flew to Space.

Champions were born at the Summer Olympics... and we lost some of the greats, DMX, Norm Macdonald, Colin Powell, John McAfee, and Mr. Goxx.

I've been reflecting not only on the events of 2021 but also on my journey at Oliver Charles. So I feel it's only fitting that the year's final issue is a recap. 

Below are our top 10 favorite memes from 2021. Enjoy!

We certainly started the year strong with the very first issue of the New Yak Times... or as it used to be called, The Morning Brown. It still makes me laugh out loud (LOL).

Six weeks later, we were getting our final stimulus checks, and a group of people debated buying a zoo. The only ones with enough gumption to pull it off? Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. True American heroes.

A month later, I was working hard at my ergonomic standing/squatting desk, getting ready to pin my very first issue of The New Yak Times. After publishing my "Why I'm Joining Announcement," of course... this is and always will be my favorite meme.

Then came summer, and much like the bees emerging from hibernation so did the world... only to be met with labor shortages and Elon Musk hosting SNL.

While we enjoyed the summer heat, the world did not, and the UN released its most alarming report to date. A change of perspective is undoubtedly in order.

Oliver Charles was feeling the heat as well, eagerly waiting colder months, or as we like to say, Sweater Weather®. We had to remind ourselves to stick to what we knew best.

Just as the cooler weather started knocking at the door, disaster stuck. Instagram went down for hours. As a guy that spends almost all day on Instagram, I was crushed.

With cooler weather came new ideas for new products. What was next? The COP26 kicked off, and our minds wandered to new types of sustainable yarns.

As the year came to an end, and we looked at our finances, it became clear that inflation was not so transitory - a topic we reflected deeply on while watching a documentary called Squid Game.

Meanwhile, just as we thought Mark Zuckerberg was ready to tap out, he announced that he would be creating his own metaverse where no one is allowed to question his status as a human being.

It was... quite a jam-packed year. However, one story stood out above them all.

No, it's not the fact that Oliver Charles celebrated our one year anniversary since launching on Indiegogo. 

As much as it pains us to say it, the only thing bigger than Oliver Charles this year was crypto. Billions were made, billions were lost, and we all got a glimpse of what a future digital world might look like.

We may have even taken away an idea or two from the madness... 2022 will be an exciting year. That's all I can say right now due to my NDA, but stay tuned.

PS: There's one meme that didn't make it into an issue, but deserves to be appreciated.
