30 Funny Memes For History Nerds

There's a reason we share so many history memes on this site. Sure, they're almost always funny. But the real reason is that there is just so much material to choose from. Memes are being made using crap that has happened over the span of thousands of years. And that means there's something for enthusiasts of nearly every period of history. Into memes about Ancient Greece and Rome? Well, they're everywhere. Prefer memes about the Middle Ages? Those are pretty prolific as well. Don't even get us started on World War II memes. There are plenty, but we have to be a little more careful with 'em due to the utter bleakness of the subject matter. So if you're looking for some historical entertainment, chances are we'll have a good meme for you in here. Don't thank us - thank the past.

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.

Extremely Specific Memes About Shotguns In WWI

If you're not a history expert or weirdly obsessed with WWI, the premise of these dank history memes may surprise you. Apparently, despite widespread use of deadly weapons such as the machine gun, Americans and their use of shotguns were the subject of an actual German protest in 1918. The Germans felt the guns were a form of terrorism, that the caused unnecessary suffering. Their protest was not taken seriously - especially because the Germans were using some pretty terrible weapons of their own. Chlorine gas, flamethrowers - even giant Zeppelin bombers.

The Germans were so appalled by the Winchester shotguns that they threatened to execute any Americans carrying the weapon. Their threats didn't sway the US Army, who kept using the guns. Some people even credit the weapons with the defeat of the Germans. Right now, the guns (and the protests surrounding them) are the subjects of an insane amount of history memes, mostly popping up in meme communities on Reddit. And they're pretty freakin' funny. We've put some of the better examples in this gallery, but we bet you can find some more if you creep around r/historymemes. Happy scrolling!
