LOL Jesus


People see Jesus everywhere, from pieces of toast, Cheetos and dog's butts, to dental scans (like the ones on this list). So naturally, the internet has become one huge platform for poking fun of the world's most vocal religion. The following memes are the best of that.

The LOL Jesus meme is simple in execution: take a picture of jesus from an old children's book or pamphlet, and make it funny by giving it a caption using stupid internet slang.

LOL JESUS was born in the manger of 4Chan's image boards, son of the God of the internet (aka the early, pre-YouTube internet crowd) that was basically doing Photoshop manipulations of everything under the sun, including, of course, Jesus and the Christian faith. Undoubtedly, manipulations of the Lord Jesus Christ were going to be some of the first things to get made fun of on the internet after everyone stopped downloading Napster songs.

Storytime Jesus


Jesus has a lot to say. So this meme is one of the most quickly viral on the list, because it basically paraphrases events from the Bible in a casual tone.

Using an image of Jesus giving a sermon, this a caption meme poking fun at how conversational and laid back Jesus looks in this particular picture, all while making him use everyday/internet slang.

Republican Jesus


Drawing attention to the vast difference between modern Republican ideals and that of the teachings of Jesus Christ himself by juxtaposing the two. The Republican Jesus meme takes the LOL Jesus meme and makes it political, putting a Republican elephant in the picture and showing off the hypocrisy of born again right-wingers.



The point being, of course, that this is a little bit of a more realistic depiction of Jesus in meme form here:

Hipster Jesus


The entire hipster meme phenomenon had to spark a Hipster Jesus at some point. And it did. And it was good. If you're not hip to the Hipster memes, their basic setup is that once you put a pair of hipster glasses on anything, that person/place/thing immediately become a pretentious, elitist, douchebag who has already heard of everything you talk about.
