History Memes For A Reminder That The Past Sucked Too

Let's face it, 2020 has been something out of an apocalyptic horror story. But it's important to put things into perspective. Historically speaking, the world used to be pretty damn f*cked up. We're not about to compare Covid-19 to the Spanish Flu or Black Death, but maybe (to some people) it's comforting to remember we're far from the first people to deal with plagues, fire and brimstone. These spicy history memes are a great reminder of that.
