18 History Memes That Will Make You Laugh Out Loud

History is the best teacher. Sadly, most people don’t actually like learning about things that happened in the past considering them over and done with. But without history we would never learn from our mistakes, and we would never advance as a civilization.

Luckily, there is Twitter account @MemesOnHistory who is here to remedy the situation. By making memes based on historic events (accurately, might I add) they help kids, and adults as well, to learn more about the past in an extremely fun and funny way. Who knows, maybe it will be enough of an incentive for students to pick up a history book and actually find out more about what’s been happening in the world.

Here are 20 of the funniest memes inspired by history, courtesy of Bored Panda. Time to learn something! Oh, don’t groan! I said memes and funny, didn’t I?
