The conceit of HBO's The Young Pope, which premieres Sunday night, seems so ridiculous that it's become something of a running internet joke: Jude Law plays a ruthlessly ambitious and altogether sinister pontiff who promises to affect radical change in the Vatican and beyond. Weird! Also, that title... yeah.

It remains to be seen whether we're seduced by this particular drama, but in the weeks leading up to its first-season run (yes, a second is already being developed), Twitter has been on fire with memes about it—to the point where Jude Law found out about the existence of memes. So here's your last chance to savor the very best before the (probably bad) show sucks the fun out of them.

So yeah, don't miss this—it's bound to be the television event of the year. Even if you're scrolling through Twitter for most of it.
