History memes could mean a really old meme, or it could mean a meme about something really old.

The latter is probably our best chance to get the kids growing up on Snapchat and Instagram to fall in love with history, and luckily for us, the Twitter account @MemesOnHistory keeps a running tab on the best historical memes circulating the web.

The fact that they're going viral on Imgur is a great sign for humanity. Or maybe not. But they're definitely funny if you've ever opened a history book (or, FINE, watched a documentary on Netflix).
