Trebuchet Memes Are Better Than Harambe And Dat Boi Combined

A controversial claim, but we're sure you'll soon agree.

"Where do memes come from?" You ask.

Well, sit down and we'll tell you a tale. You see, no one really knows where memes come from. Anyone who says otherwise is full of shit. Okay?

All we know is that the meme of the century is finally here: TREBUCHET MEMES, BABY.

Yes, trebuchet memes are a thing now. Is there a Facebook group dedicated to trebuchet memes? You bet your sweet ass there is.

But why the obsession with 90kg objects being launched over 300m? According to the Daily Dot, these killer memes have existed for a while, but got a boost from a Reddit thread earlier this year. User dryersheetz shared an incredible fact he had learned, and the trebuchet memes revolution began:

[Today, I learned] King Edward I built the largest trebuchet ever in order to lay siege to a Scottish Castle. The sight of the giant trebuchet so intimidated the Scots that they tried to surrender, but Edward sent them back so he could use his new weapon to launch 300 lb projectiles at the castle.

The best part is they can be mashed up with basically any other meme, so they will NEVER DIE. Here are some of our faves:

God speed, you trebuchet memes. May you launch 90kg objects over 300m for the rest of time.
