‘Tripping Through Time’ is NOT a new meme. The whole meme concept of slapping a modern caption on to extremely weird gothic paintings and art has been around for a few years, but that doesn’t make ‘Tripping Through Time’ and less funny. Much like a fine wine I think that as a meme ‘Tripping Through Time’ has only gotten better with age. Over the past year or two people have really narrowed down to the best pictures and/or paintings from yesteryear, and the captions just keep getting better and better.
For those of you who are intimately familiar with the ‘Tripping Through Time’ meme already I’ll ask that you forgive me for a second while I explain the premise to those out there who aren’t already in the know. Tripping Through Time is pretty much your basic image macro meme, meaning someone takes a picture of something funny and applies a caption to it. What sets the Tripping Through Time meme apart from the rest is that the images used are pictures of paintings and sculptures that date as far back as biblical times and span mostly between the time of Jesus on up through the 1800’s, so basically any period of time that wouldn’t be characterized as ‘modern times’. From there the pictures and captions get pretty damn offensive, so if you’re not able to laugh at just about anything then turn away now, because the Tripping Through Time Meme is probably not for you. And while you might be inclined to say that some of the pics are borderline NSFW I need you to keep in mind that these are all pictures of paintings that are sitting in museums, so there’s nothing NSFW about it.

And thus concludes our gallery of the very best from the ‘Tripping Through Time Meme’. As I mentioned before these pics came from the dedicated subreddit ‘TrippingThroughTime‘. Something I didn’t get around to mentioning before are that subreddit’s dedicated rules for making a proper Tripping Through Time Meme, the major two rules are as follows:
Rule 1: Images must be historic in nature, depicting humans or mythological humanoids. They don’t have to be art! Photos are okay… just make sure they’re really old photos.
Rule 2: Images must contain a humanoid that either looks like they don’t know what’s going on, or is doing something out of the ordinary.
