Art aficionados like to pretend that there's a very specific and complex science behind interpreting paintings. But as these humorous tweets reveal, the hidden messages are often pretty obvious, not to mention pretty funny!

These modern interpretations of centuries-old paintings come courtesy of Medieval Reactions, a wryly funny Twitter account that's making people smile with its contemporary take on traditional artwork. And as you can see, it appears that the observations and dilemmas faced by our ancestors aren't that much different to those of today! Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

    I've heard of the head of a man, body of a goat; but this head of a man, balls of a bull is a totally new concept!

    This painter had nothing to paint, so he painted life true to form!

    When the only way to convince people you're a boy because of the dress , is to whip out your penis and pee on the ground directly in front of them

    When you in the middle of a parade, and realize you have to pee. Bad. The snotty kid next to you says, 'man up, you gotta hold it!' And you know the guy with the piccolo is trying not to laugh.
