It’s no secret that people on the internet find some of the weirdest things to joke about. There are plenty of memes that make absolutely no sense if you don’t know either the context or the history of the said memes, as well as some unfortunate topics covered in not the best light (we all remember the Harambe incident and all that followed). Well, Tumblr users found out about Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate and all the ridiculous Facebook events that people created related to it and they went along with it. While they shared their favorite images of “the Bean”, someone figured out that there’s more to the infamous sculpture than just the funny edits.
