38 Art Memes For Cultured Souls

Artists have been revered for creating works of beauty for thousands of years - but do you think brush-wielding monks in medieval Europe had any idea their painstaking efforts would be used for the unholy humor of memes? Chances are they didn't. These memes may have absolutely nothing to do with the art's intended purpose, but we think they add historical and cultured edge to an art form that's only been around for a couple decades. They're a beautiful merging of old and new, and (most importantly) they're funny as hell.

Twitter Thread: Medieval Artists Had No Idea What Animals Looked Like

At this point we're all aware of the cursed nature of medieval cat art. Their strangely human painted faces are the stuff of bad trips, or for the innocent, nightmares. While we've learned to accept their demonic yet depressed vibe, Twitter user @DannyDutch has clued us into some more fascinating (and slightly freaky) medieval animal art. His thread boasts 17 examples of medieval artists saying "f*ck it, i think this is what xyz animal looks like." And while sometimes the artists hit the nail mostly on the head, some have left us either laughing at their absurdity or feeling slightly disturbed. However these artifacts make you feel, we can be sure of one thing: art and world travel have both come a long way since the Middle Ages.

George Washington Memes That Depict The First President As An Absent Father

Here's an interesting bit of historical trivia: George Washington helped raise step-children from wife Martha Washington's previous marriage, but the two never had biological children since George was likely left sterile after a bout of smallpox. Of course, we're pretty sure George was incredibly sad about this too, but these memes paint him as absent and Martha as baby-crazy. Despite their historical inaccuracy, we found them hilarious, and we're pretty sure you will too.
