History Memes That Are At Least Historically Funny

History memes aren't for everyone. Maybe all the plebeians with their Slim Jims and reality television will have their minds sated by relatable content, but not the brooding, dour historian. No, the historians among us will only draw pleasure from history memes for the historically inclined. Yes, the only thing that can light up the brain of an enlightened one is history memes for the splendiferously learned. That and maybe some fancier, beefier Slimothy Jameses.

Mayor Destroys Only Green-Space Park, Town Members Abandon Town

Alright, there were doubts expressed in the comments section over whether or not this is a mere work of fiction. At the same time some folks stepped forward to provide pretty compelling points that this very well could've been a thing back in the day. Even if it's some creative writing that we have going on here, it's a pretty entertaining series of events. Talk about a collective power move. Basically, don't mess with people's parks, man. Especially if you're the mayor of a very small town, and run the risk of having that very small town's population just dip out. 

A crazy story about a small town taking revenge on park being demolished by abandoning the town.

As a result, they provide plenty of material for memes. Everyone involved might be long dead or not even real, but it doesn't stop them from providing the humor.

Time Traveler Memes Reveal Cursed Results of the Butterfly Effect

Even if you haven't seen 2004's The Butterfly Effect, you're probably aware of the concept in its title. It hails from Edward Lorenz' lauded work with chaos theory. Lorenz first popularized the idea in regards to weather, with the most famous example being that a sudden change in the way a butterfly flaps its wings can cause a tornado weeks later.

In pop culture, however, we associate the butterfly effect with Ashton Kutcher's dumb face and the horrifying consequences of altering the timeline. These memes tend to reflect the latter, and based on their cursed nature, we're, like, 100% sure that time traveling would be a mistake. See for yourself.

Butts and Busts: Expert Provides Essential Assessment of Exhibits' Fantassticly Exceptional Assets

Sometimes someone just comes along and gives us something that we would never have dreamed of, and right now it's this guy right here. He has done us an amazing service by providing his analysis on something we never even knew we needed, something that we are still pretty sure we don't need.

Regardless, it's here and it's indiscriminate of gender. As, in true internet form, this enlightened individual has provided us unnecessary insight into the asses of history.

History Memes For Scholars Of the Past

Things seem pretty bleak in the present. Between the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic turmoil its caused, and the insane winter storms that have crippled Texas, we're kind of over everything. Gone is the youthful hope that we once had, our plans for the future. Traveling the world and learning about other cultures is also out of the question. If we don't want to think about the sh*tshow we're dealing with, and the future is uncertain, what can we turn to? You got it, the past.

While poring over history tomes and watching educational television shows are both fine and dandy, we prefer to get our fix via memes. And history memes are far from hard to come by. They're all over Reddit and Instagram, dropping some serious knowledge and inspiring some very  hearty chuckles. Though some of these memes may feel like they require a history degree to understand, we're pretty sure even a high school dropout would understand some of the other references. And hey, by scrolling through these memes you might even learn something.
