Meme of the Year 2012

The Guardian has called The Ecce Homo fresco restoration the 2012 meme of the year.  I have to say I have enjoyed the monkey man invasion of art as shown in this tribute gallery. Personally, I think IKEA monkey could have given it a run for its money.  In true internet parlance, we should ask, […]
