The Internet never fails to deliver, and as always, has produced some comedic gold following President Obama's final State of the Union address on Tuesday. A quick glance through Twitter shows that social media's best comedians were ready and waiting to pounce on the night. It also helps that our own president is a pretty funny guy himself, with his quick jabs at Congress and smooth, slightly underhanded way of calling opponents out. And so living up to the Commander-in-Chief's comedic standards, the Internet turned out with their best State of the Union memes.
Last year's SOTU had perhaps what became one of the president's most memorable lines of his entire presidency.

Many of the Republicans in attendance erupted in applause, to which Obama quickly retorted, off the script, "I know, 'cause I won both of 'em."
Boom. And of course, the Internet responded in kind:
2016's SOTU delivered with some equally great memes:
And perhaps the best three of the night, including a realization that Nikki Haley is actually just an older version of the Overly Attached Girlfriend, and that Biden is ready to take one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind:
