A Battalion of Band of Brothers Memes For WWII Fanatics

There are a lot of stereotypes out there about older men. I remember a wise editor from FailBlog saying that when you reach middle age, you can be one of two types of men: a model train guy, or a WWII guy . And I, despite being a woman who is under 40, definitely fall into the latter category. While I enjoy all forms of war-related media (except for, you know, the news), there's something about WWII movies that just hits different. Even better than WWII movies? WWII miniseries. My personal favo…

Nerdy Memes For Well Rounded Intellectuals

What does it mean to be a nerd ? We're certainly in a golden age of nerdiness; nerds are by no means such a prominent subject of ridicule as they were in the 80s. We've got way worse new groups like incels to take the brunt of criticism for being lame. Now, it seems like everybody wants to be a nerd, or at least everybody thinks they're a nerd. This might be partly caused by superhero movie fans thinking that liking Iron Man makes them part of a class of esoteric nerds that only the most intell…

Art History Memes For Masters of Realism

If you think about it, paintings were the original memes . Past painters made realistic depictions of people with all sorts of intentions in mind. Portraits, depictions of rural life, images from literature: whatever they meant to people in the 1800s doesn't matter that much. Now, they are prime fodder for memes. The expressions made by people in paintings are objectively funny. Their exaggerated or intentionally demure vibes make them the perfect subject for relatable memes. Even though I'm no…

History Memes That May Launch You Back In Time

Unless you were blessed enough to go to school when “cool” gen X teachers used memes in their lectures while desperately trying to connect with the youngsters, it's novel to see memes used educationally. History and memes have some exciting things in common. Memes and history are constantly repeating themselves. Image macros Historical events occur, and most of them are quickly forgotten, with only a few juggernauts sticking in the public memory. If someone ran up to you on the street and asked

You don't have to crack open a textbook or a non-fiction account of some historical event to indulge in a little history.

Fascinating Video Suggests J.R.R. Tolkien Borrowed From African History While Writing His Tales of Middle-earth

There's no shortage of discourse concerning race and Amazon's just-released series, T he Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The program, which has premiered to largely favorable reviews, introduces characters of color to T olkien's stories - a move that has sadly led to a ton of backlash, even in what are normally lighthearted meme communities. It seems that quite a few fans of Tolkien's work happen to think that there were no people of color in his world - allegedly because the tales were…

Hellenistic Memes for Ancient History Geeks

The socratic philosophers of ancient Greece weren't so different from us. If Diogenes were alive today, he'd probably be subtweeting Plato about his subpar interpretation of Socrates, and virtue signaling about his choice to live in poverty with stray dogs. Kanye and Kim's toxic relationship is just a contemporary version of Zeus and Hera. It's no wonder memes about classics and ancient history are popular—humans haven't really change that much. If you have a taste for history and humor, we've…

Nerdy Memes For Those Who Don't Not Identify With Young Sheldon

“You employed the use of a double negative in the title of this article. It shows a command of the English language that is subpar at best and frightening at worst.” If some variation of that thought ran through your head when you read this headline, you're a regular Young Sheldon. Or you're adult Sheldon; knowing pedantic weirdos, you're probably an adult Sheldon. Young Sheldon is at least cute enough to find slightly bemusing, but regular old elder millennial Sheldon can be a real irritating…
