History can be a tough subject but don't worry, Twitter's got you covered. You'll never forget these important moments in history now that they've been told in memes.
Donald Trump's political rally in Chicago got shut down because of people protesting him. His son, Donald Trump Jr. responded with a claim that the protestors didn't know why they were even protesting. John Legend had a pretty simple answer for him.
Another Twitter user, notably with the name "RedKneckHillBilly", claimed John Legend said that because he just had no education and in this case, he might be right...
Because both Trumps went to the University of Pennsylvania, just like John Legend, and look where that got them.
You may have heard that the Beatles' former manager, George Martin, died recently. A lot of people saw that and thought that George R.R. Martin had died.

Even a news outlet got confused.
But the record has been set straight and we all know now that George R. R. Martin, the author of the Game of Thrones TV show and novel series, is totally still alive.
Except this guy...
He's... probably still a little confused.
You may remember hip hop artist Bubba Sparxxx from his biggest hit, "Miss New Booty". It seems like he's changed a lot since then, he's about to marry a former Miss Iowa and he also got quite a bit thinner. Now that he's older, he's also taken to wearing "normal people" clothes instead of hip hop fashion. People of the internet are very amused by this new "accountant" look and Bubba has not missed an opportunity to respond.
Like a college student procrastinating on a project, Kanye West decided it would be interesting to his Twitter followers to post a screenshot of what he's currently listening to. But wait, what's that you say? Something Kanye West posted on Twitter backfired on him in an ironic yet predictable way? Yes, Kanye West, a man who hates Pirate Bay so much he considered suing them has a Pirate Bay browser open in his browser and he posted it for all the internet to see.
EDM producer Deadmau5 even called him out on it.
It looks like Kanye was doing a little research into new music software and settled on pirating a copy of Xfer Records Serum. Deadmau5, who is a also a cofounder of Xfer Records, continued to mock Kanye's choice to torrent his product.
Kanye has yet to respond with a weird Twitter rant but don't worry, there's still time...
Just kidding! It happened already:
He's been on Ellen and been swatted, and now the kid behind 'Damn Daniel' has had his Twitter account hacked. Whoever took over his account deleted his original viral video with 340,000 retweets, and posted a bunch of uncomfortable racist stuff instead. Some media outlets are reporting that he got hacked by the KKK or by horrible racists, but it's more likely that whoever did this just wanted to make Josh look as bad as possible. What better way to do that than with stuff like this:
Someone on Twitter asked Gordon Ramsay if he's alergic to anything. His response made a lot of people mad:
It may be a fitting joke for a chef but it wasn't very nice. Not surprisingly, vegans responded with disappointment.

Some people were more upset that the joke just wasn't that clever:
But it's ok guys, because he apologized and clarified that it was just a joke.
Good one, Ramsay.
'Idiocracy' is everyone's favorite movie about a dystopian future in which everyone has become really, really stupid. The movie's writer, Etan Cohen, seems dissapointed in how close he seems to have hit the mark.
'Idiocracy' is a cultural touchstone that everyone likes to use to point to how ridiculous modern life has become. Even Terry Crews (AKA President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho) used the premise to poke fun at the current election cycle.
The official Walking Dead Twitter account started by creating The Walking Dead versions of Oscar nominated films. Then other people caught on and it spiraled out of control like a mysterious pathogen that causes people to become reanimated corpses when they die.
During a Michigan-Ohio State basketball game, ESPN debuted a camera angle that was supposed to make people feel like they were sitting courtside. Unfortunately, it was not the experience they hoped for.
It turned out to be a weird angle that didn't account for the referees who ended up blocking out much of the screen anytime they walked by. People hated it so much, it's probably safe to say that ESPN will not be trying this again. via @AceAnbender, @eboland11, @BryMac, @Reflog18
Jeb Bush woke up today thinking, "What is America?" That's when he ran out and bought a gun so that he could Tweet the most 'Murica Tweet that has ever been posted with complete sincerity. The obvious stream of memes followed but, unfortunately for Jeb, it was really hard to top the original punchline/genuine attempt at a heartfelt, patriotic Tweet. That isn't to say they aren't worth reading, some of them may even inspire you to clap.
These Twitter emoji are part of a promotion for that All-Star NBA game. They will be live until Monday morning. You can use them by Tweeting the All-Star's name with a hashtag.
Those following along with the All-Star game can also use these emojis to vote for the MVP by adding #KiaAllStarMVP along with their player of choice.
They also have some amusing personal emojis for the broadcasters as well, although since fan voting only makes up 25% of the decision for MVP it's unlikely the broadcasters will end up getting the award.
Fundraising emails from Hillary Clinton are apparently getting real desperate. The insistent wording from an email asking for money inspired the hashtag #ImNotKiddingMaddi and the memes that came from it. Guys, Hillary Clinton is not fooling around, she needs your dollar RIGHT THIS SECOND.
This magazine cover was made by Tyler the Creator as part of an increasingly ridiculous roll out of Kanye West's newest album "So Help Me God/Swish/Wave/Whatever He's Calling It Today". Rolling Stone has confirmed that it is not an upcoming cover but it seems like Kanye wants to convince them by getting support from the public.
You can call this image funny, stupid, "unauthorized", whatever you want, just don't call it fake.
Russell Wilson wanted to shout his love from the Twitter tops with (more than one) #WomanCrushWednesday posts about Ciara. He searched desperately for the words to describe her beauty and settled on a mash-up of corny, poetic words from the first creative writing website he found.
