Just like the empires and colonizers of old, funny history memes manage to insert themselves into everything whether they were invited or not.

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.
