Museums and art galleries can become an overwhelming experience for the casual visitor. Luckily, some people untangle centuries-old ideas and dumb-down them into language us mortals can understand, too. Previously, we covered museum museum snapchats; now it's time for something else - an array of hilarious art memes. After diving into this list, you might just feel as a highbrow art critic yourself.

Though memes and classical art is not a combination that we are used to seeing, some of the museums and galleries have recently allowed their visitors to take pictures and publish them in their social media profiles, thus making the art more accessible and visible to an ordinary human being. While Da Vinci might not have planned for his work to turn into a classical art meme, this way his and other classical artists work becomes more relatable to us.

Bored Panda has collected some of the funniest classical art memes that are impossible not to laugh at, and they will please your inner snob. From explaining what girls are up to when they go to the bathroom to proving some hustlers tried to sell Jesus merchandise at the crucifixion, these art history memes prove that nothing has changed in hundreds of years. Scroll down to check out how the hilarious list and vote for your favorite entries.

Actually had that happen to me 25 yrs. ago. I thought I was in a drama class, but it turned out to be International Law. I guess I forgot to read the numbers above the classroom doors.

You'd be surprised, but when I was a kid, we actually did try to get some spirits to "show up" when we went to the bathroom in a group :D

I normally grit and bare my teeth and close my eyes, resulting in a painful grimace as though I had stepped on my corgi's rawhide half-eaten bone.

This looks very much like she's trying to get away from being raped. Very strange thing to paint.
