Meme Of The Day: Joseph Ducreux/Archaic Rap Guy

From KnowYourMeme:

"Joseph Ducreux (1735–1802) is an eighteenth century French artist known for his unorthodox style of portrait paintings. On the interweb, his eccentric self-portrait has inspired a series of exploitable macros, featuring archaic reinterpretation of popular rap lyrics superimposed over the artwork. This highly verbose joke provides a satisfying challenge of 'decoding' the corrupted lyrics back into to the original verses. Variations of the meme include verbose translations of popular web phrases such as 'Come at me, bro' and 'All your base are belong to me'."


  1. I love these. My son and his friends talk like this all the time. They even add accents (which they think makes them sound smarter.)

    Any form of the word "coitus" makes me giggle. Too much "Big Bang Theory" I think. :)

  2. Haha! I love wordplay, so these tickle my funny bone. I think the "We built this city..." one is my favorite. :-)

  3. "Spongebarb"

    Ahahahahahaha! :D

  4. Is it just me, or does this dude look like Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers?

  5. "That's what she said" - hahaha!

    Very clever captions for Mr. Ducreux's image.
