Five More Pride and Prejudice Memes

We all love Pride and Prejudice, and one list just wasn’t enough. Has anything been more embraced? More memed? There’s just something about this book. And don’t get me started on the movies. That’s controversy I don’t need. Though there are probably an endless number of god tier Pride and Prejudice memes, but I’m only human, so here are five.

 

He’s a Smooth Man

He has to know he has no idea how to small talk. Has he met himself? Has he even seen the show? He was like, you know what I need? To endear myself to this woman. What are my most charming skills? Oh, I know, saying absolutely nothing and being nice. What could be better than mixing them? Nice house, also I’m in love with you. I guess at least he’s being positive for once.

 

Surprisingly Valid

Poor Elizabeth’s expression just communicates so much. Am I mad though? It’s true, her mom is a terrifying person whose energy is hard to deal with, but she does care. A lot. Too much. It’s INCURABLE. Obviously Elizabeth didn’t want Darcy to talk shit about her mum, but wasn’t he kind of right? It’s like she makes peace with her mother’s eccentricity just out of spite. What an icon.

 

Unrealistic

Oh, sure, it’s accurate, but it’s so short and simple! Mr. Collins would never be so to the point. He would just max out the word limit and then talk to customer service to see if he could write more. He didn’t even mention Catherine de Berg once. It could never happen. Please, though? I confess, I don’t remember if he begged, but it feels perfectly accurate.

 

Coping Well

Just reacting the way any functioning adult would to the presence of their crush. Just mentally yelling at yourself to be cool, and  covering your entire face. All his mystery and mystique is just the the panic of an absolute nerd. This man is doing his absolute best, and I think that’s admirable. Sure, he’s failing catastrophically,  but he’s trying. I think we can all relate.

 

Situationally Appropriate

To be real, if someone confessed their adoration to me, I’d turn into Gonzo too. Me? My me? There’s also the element of outrageous insults leading into it. Nothing like getting mad at your nemesis insulting people you care about, and then they beg you to marry them. There might be weirder situations, but I don’t know what they could possibly be.

The Charybdis of Literary Meme Culture

Hello internet denizens. Do you Like Homer? Sappho? Memes? Allow me to introduce you to the swirling vortex that is the classics fandom. It may have been two-hundred years since they got any new material, but the community is still going strong. Let’s take a look.

Here, a meme about the greatest intellectual tragedy of all time.

But it’s not all about history. Here are some about the Iliad.

Alright, so it wasn’t a gift, it was a sacrifice to the gods that the Trojans were foolish enough to steal, but I’m not mad about it. Trojan horse memes may be antique, but they’re classic (heh).

How about another Iliad meme, this time thanks to Parks and Rec.

No opinions on the Iliad? No worries! There are general interest memes as well, about things like the Greek gods.

Zeus is a thot. That’s the real takeaway. There’s actually a lot of comedic Zeus hate, which is honestly incredibly valid. Try this one on for size.

Of course, it didn’t work out very well for Prometheus, but at least he got a burn in before being chained… to a rock… and having his liver… repeatedly eaten. Yikes. He’s definitely going to need more than aloe.

 

 

Just one more history meme before I go.

March fifteenth may have come and gone somehow, but jokes about stabbing Caesar don’t have to be contained to one date, and next year, when you see this last meme, you’ll know it’s come.
