32 Hilarious Memes Only True History Nerds Will Understand

Usually, on this site, we post some pretty serious things: biographies, theories, archaeological news, and answers to some of history’s puzzling questions, like why America drives on the right side of the road. Well, it’s time we lightened up for a bit and enjoyed a few good history jokes. These are the kind of jokes that you’ll only understand if you’re a history nerd, and if you follow this site then you likely are. There’s no super intense historical debate here, only memes.
