THERE’S NO BETTER WAY TO REVISIT A YEAR THAN BY RECITING ITS HOTTEST CATCHPHRASES. Just say a few classic catchphrases in front of the mirror and boom: Welcome to 1995. (Or whatever year you want to go to.) It’s like you’re really there! Is it any wonder people call catchphrases “Nature’s time machine?”

2013 saw an abundance of catchphrases, from TV wisecracks to sobering pronouncements seared into our memory — even to things we read on bumper stickers! When historians look back on this year, they’ll probably wonder how we came up with so many catchphrases. Answer: We worked really hard to develop amazing catchphrases. It’s as simple as that.

In fact, if we had to sum up 2013’s cornucopia of catchphrases with a single catchphrase, it’d probably be: “Got catchphrases? Yeah, we certainly do in 2013!”

So let’s have three cheers for the TOP TEN CATCHPHRASES OF 2013:

10. “Whaaaassssup in 2013″

9. “Let’s get it started in here”

8. “Please leave a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can”

7. “Go big or go home”

6. “I love you Martha”

5. “They updated that app”

4. (TIE) “Happy birthday to you” / “Twerking 24/7 at the club, can’t touch this”

3. “Wave your arms like you just don’t care, 2013 represent this great year 2013 for life guys, I’m serious”

2. (TIE) “OMG check out this text” / “Selfie”
