List Rules Vote up the memes history expects you to repeat.

Those who fail to remember history are not only doomed to repeat it, but they also miss out on all the best historical memes available on the internet. Despite how boring everyone seems to find history class, hilarious historical memes and medieval reactions turn up in every corner of the internet. Just like the empires and colonizers of old, funny history memes manage to insert themselves into everything whether they were invited or not. Memes involving history, much like history according to Tumblr, thrive by imbuing the old with the new. A medieval painting with resolution worse than an old Simpsons episode suddenly becomes a DaVinci by simply adding some text referencing pop culture. People may not always identify with history, but they definitely respond to the jokes in these hilarious history memes.
