Medieval Paintings Get Comical With The Addition Of Some Humorous And Absurd Captions

Medieval art can look slightly strange to the modern eye, all that lack of perspective and strange, often violent, goings-on. It's a scary reminder of how dark the dark ages were. But, as weird as they might be, many of them are just begging to be captioned with a mirthsome remark.

Which is exactly what's going on here, turning art from the Middle Ages into a wonderful collection of hilarious contemporary memes. Because that's what culture is these days, and it makes for very funny reading too.

You could call it a form of art criticism, but it isn't, so you'd be wrong.

Instead it's just some good old fashioned silly humor. If it seems familiar, the images are in a similar vein to the Medieval Reactions Twitter account.

But these are taken from the r/MedievalThings Reddit sub.

Enjoyeth.
