Amusing Twitter Thread Compares Civil War Generals To Muppets

We never thought we'd see the day that some enterprising Twitter user decided to assign Muppet lookalikes to prominent Civil War generals, but it's officially come. On September 6th,  Phd candidate @CNZander began their humorous journey, introducing the world of Twitter to the fact that Braxton Bragg bears an uncanny resemblance to Sam the Eagle. Even more amusing? That General Custer had curls that nearly rival Miss Piggy. We've included some of the astute tweets in this gallery, but you can check out the thread for more whimsical and historical goodness. There's definitely more where these came from.

Nineteen Dank Time Machine Memes Because They're Everywhere

Remember those Time Machine memes we covered last week? Well, they haven't shown any sign of disappearing from our timeline. The very gender-oriented format plays with many themes, but most often imagines men and women doing very different things with time-traveling technology. While the format often imagines doing something just and noble with the time machines, sometimes the boy (or girl) in question chooses to do something entirely pointless. Either way, we're loving the memes. We've put together some of favorite new iterations, but you can read more about the format (and enjoy more examples) over at Know Your Meme
