The Funniest History Memes
The US Against The World
Some say the country that likes conflict the most –especially in the Middle East- happens to be the United States, while others say that it could be England as well. It doesn't matter which one is it because SpongeBob and Patrick explain it way better!
It is never good to generalize because we all agree that men are the one that start wars! Even Robin Williams once said it "if women ran the world we wouldn't have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days"
The European Strategy

Would you eat an ice-cream that wasn't yours on a table just because you found it first? It's funny to think that European really thought that the American continent was theirs because they only rediscovered it.
Winter Has Come
What has been Russia's best defense technique? Their weather! And we think it is safe to say that there must be some White Walkers on their country to help a bit…
The great thing about this meme, in particular, is that it can be applied on thousand different situations, like "Einstein explaining the theory of relativity to the world" or "me explaining to my mom how to make wi-fi work".
In the wise words of Gretchen Wieners from Mean Girls "when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody, because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just stab Caesar!" Hey, any salad can be Caesar if you stab it enough…
We must say this could be one of the funniest and most accurate descriptions about each country's soldiers. However, he wouldn't be writing this if he had tried this with the Soviets!
Who would have thought that rats held as much power as Thanos did in Europe? Well, at least 25 million Europeans thought so. Thank god Ratatouille was born much later!
Why Are You So Obsessed With Me?
The United Kingdom is that kind of ex that hasn't been completely over you and when they can, they give likes and hearts in all your social media for you to notice it. Get over it!
When Bullying Goes Too Far
The funniest and most clever thing about this meme is the pun with "only one in ten will get this". Well, we're very sorry to say that Jesus isn't amused by this.
The Colorized Version
Any scene from The Office can be turned into a meme without thinking hard. We think Kelly would definitely be Italy, always trying to make Germany fall in love with her!
If I Didn’t See It, It Didn’t Happen
We have another meme about the World Wars in our hands, and this one is the real-life version! What makes it funnier is the smug expression on the man in purple.
The French have become the butt of the jokes about the WWs. Although these subtitles do not have any meaning, they definitely do when talking about history. Just spot on!
Free Real Estate
Though France gets to be the butt of the joke, Poland is that friend that will always welcome you when you are on a trip near their place, either willingly or not.
The Power Of An Indian
For once it is refreshing to see how the peaceful words and actions of a historical figure helped to tear down a modern empire. Yes, we are talking about Thanos in the last Avengers movie.
Who knew Josef Stalin was such a heartthrob during his earlier years… Did you know he wore stacked shoes to appear a few inches taller? Tom Cruise would be proud of him!
Can you imagine how jealous Trump must be –if he knew- of Hadrian? Can you imagine if Trump actually builds a wall and becomes the new Hadrian? *flies away from the Earth*
Two Faced Italy
One of the most hilarious things about this meme is that the politicians of the picture –Mexico, Canada, and USA- used to do this all the time nowadays. History repeats itself.
This photo is squads' goals, that is if you happen to have Nazis and fascists friends. Who would have guessed these nine men could be the horsemen of the apocalypse?
No Treats For You, Chile
This is what happens when Bolivia wants a way out to the Pacific Ocean but Chile is that bully that is always standing in their way. Some people say they're still salty about it!
The Nuremberg Trials
What it began as a proposal from Stalin, it turned out to be one of the biggest trials of history. Stalin's plan to make Germany pay for what they did had been planned all along, super shady!
Thank God For Winter
Thanks to Russia and its super cold winters we avoided a lot of worldwide disasters, like Germans forcing the rest of the world to wear that hideous and nazi mustache.
There is no way that Japan could have bombed Pearl Harbour while being THAT away, right? If only the Earth was flat, they would have definitely succeeded. Another inside job by the USA.
World War II For Dummies
Get your facts straight by taking a look at this meme, this simple photo shows how hatred for one thing, in this case, world communism, got two groups together. Who said that hatred leads nowhere?
Euphemisms At Their Best
If you ever find yourself wanting to kill a lot of people either for their race or beliefs, you just got to use a euphemism so you can get away with murder. Just like this countries did!
Like True Friends
Argentina and Chile are like those siblings who are always picking on and annoying each other, but when it comes to covering their backs when their parents get angry they will always work together.
No Treats For You, Bosnia
Now it is Bosnia's turn for a meme. Did you know that after going to war, Croatia only gave 12 kilometers of coastline to Bosnia? It looks like bully Croatia is getting in their way one more time!
Marvel’s Cold War
Can you picture Stalin as Iron Man and Truman as Captain America? This is definitely one of the best and most accurate memes regarding the Cold War. Super spot on!
We are positive that not even Adolf Hitler saw this plot twist coming. With such powerful people like Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt who would have thought that Hitler's assassination was to be done by Hitler himself?
Just A Gift
Ironically enough, if the Trojans had taken a look at their gift horse in the mouth, it is safe to say that they would have avoided all that followed! What came first: the Trojan horse or the idiom?
Winning At Dating
Both French and German leaders have failed when they tried to invade Russia. Also, most countries have failed too, that is unless they were from the Mongol Empire, of course.
Just when the world thought that the First World War had been one of the deadliest events in history, there comes the Spanish Flu to make them change their mind.
Poland has landed a spot once again, but this time it is for their easy access when it comes to war leaders looking for some extra territory. When will it end?
Castro was a great salesman when it came to jumping on Russia's communism ideals. If only that deterrent would have worked against the USA. Thank god for Cuban's cigars, right?
Did you know that the Terminator's catchphrase was based on Napoleon coming back from his exile in 1815? Well, that is actually not true, but it could have been since Bonaparte decided to appear out of nowhere.
Fossil fuels don't exactly come from dinosaurs fossils, BUT there is no evidence showing that we are not really fueling cars with Littlefoot. Is it too soon for this joke?
Jerusalem is like the new student at school who is mysterious and hot so everybody want to date it. Except here, the athlete of the class, in this case Israel, tries to win it over from Palestine, the geeky guy.
Cold War Beginning
If Nixon lived nowadays, he would have been so happy with auto deleting messages. At least he made the term "Watergate" famous after the political scandal that led to his eventual impeachment.
When You Don’t Think The Plan Through
Have you ever been so focused doing an exam that you overlooked/forgot the most evident point? If you felt like a failure, just think about the Scots in the 1300s.
I Hit It First
It seems like poor Christopher Columbus never read a dictionary during his lifetime, so he thought that the term discover and claim were the same. The Native Americans definitely hit it first.
Antonio Meucci, a poor Italian entrepreneur, worked in the same lab as Bell did and was the real inventor of the telephone. Talk about a partner stealing the invention of a lifetime…
Orwell Would Be Proud
The most hilarious thing about this meme is that it can be applied for almost any historic event, like colonization, religion and every warlike country. Ironically, communisms finds its way through this meme!
Social Justice In A Nutshell
Well, not all men are equal, some are more equal than others. Thomas Jefferson sure was very surprised when minorities also meant slaves. Some people say ignorance is bliss, isn't it?
One More Meme
This meme puts every lazy person to shame, as if getting territory wasn't so easy… But really, the Romans mustn't have known about the concept of procrastination right? Would have done wonders for them!
When You Have Your Own Back
It seems that apparently this is why they say it is very important to practice self-love, because if you don't have faith in yourself then who will? Lenin would approve!
Messy King Who Lives For Drama
If you happen to be the King of England and the Roman Catholic Church isn't in the mood for granting you a divorce, would you really pay attention to a man who wears a funny hat? Apparently, Henry VIII didn't.
Religion In A Nutshell
"We're here to save your soul, but if you don't want to have it saved, then too bad nobody asked you!", "Hey freedom of religion is great, but OURS is way better and if you don't agree, we will force you too!"
What Do You Mean He’s Gone?!
We think it was a very bold move for the Romans to kill a guy who was able to turn water into wine, why would they do that? They definitely didn't think it through.
It is hilarious how accurate this meme is when it comes to Switzerland's neutrality during both World Wars. We can say it is a pretty peaceful country who isn't looking for drama!
Dangerous White People
This scene comes from Pocahontas the movie and the fact that white people's main objective was to conquer land all over the world is accurate enough, but have you ever heard of Genghis Khan?
