History takes on new meaning

http://www.cracked.com/article_16464...year-olds.html

I don't think these were actually done by kids, and some I don't get the references, but the rest are pretty hilarious.

This could branch off into a contest of who can successfully name the most historical events from those pictures.

I would lose.

#9 is Homer's depiction of the Trojan horse in the Iliad and #22 is the War of 1812. #12...your guess is as good as mine.

Reading the comments, 12 was apparently the Moon Landing and 10 refers to the Iran-Contra affair.

Alright guys, teamwork! Let's do this!

25: Atomic bombing of Japan
24: Battle of the Alamo
23: Cotton Gin
22: War of 1812
21: Woodstock
20: Jonestown
19: Easter
18: Cold War
17: Nazis
16: '48 election
15: ????
14: Trail of Tears
13: Scopes Monkey Trial
12: Moon Landing ???
11: Michelangelo paints Sistine Chapel
10: ???? No effing clue.
9: Homer telling the Illiad
8: "Let them eat cake"
7: Civil war?? No that was semper fi... um I dunno.
6: Rosa Parks
5: Columbus
4: Killing the Indians .... any battle in particular?
3: Moon landing (with Dora the Explorer and Batman, apparently)
2: Crossing the Delaware
1: Underground railroad

So I guess 7, 10, 15 are the ones I don't know.

Edit: OK, 10 is Iran-Contra? I still don't get it, but sure.

What a horribly Americanized view of history. Anyways, some of them were rather amusing.

I believe #4 is Battle of the Little Bighorn. That would be Custer with a rocket pack and a machine gun massacring Indians.

I believe you're right.

The sic temper whatever is what Booth quoted as he fled from the theatre.

Number 12 is an airport incident by the looks of it.

Not politically incorrect, just dealing with subject matter that is of little importance on the world stage of history.
