Universal themes bridge time and culture, connecting the past to the present with an understanding that some things never change. No matter the era, you can count on the endurance of certain human emotions like the bond between parent and child, the tragedy of poverty, the bittersweet saying of goodbye to a loved one, the horror you feel when your crush picks up your phone and starts reading through all those text messages you wrote about him. Which is why these memes connected to classic art are so hilarious. There’s nothing funnier than juxtaposing modern problems on dudes (and dudettes) from the past, because while the circumstances may have changed the oh so human responses never will.
