While browsing the internet today I realized that there are many memes which could be considered medievalisms. In this specific instance I was looking at a series of manuscript-esk images which spell out the lyrics to the popular 2003 song ‘Milkshake’ by Kelis Rogers. The meme itself echoes the lyrics to Kelis’ song with changes to specific lyrics which make them appear ‘medieval’. This switching of contexts is not so much a reimagining of the past, so much as it is a appropriation of an ancient aesthetic style. This drastic switching of contexts outlines the lyrics inherent ridiculousness while simultaneously inserting modern culture into the medieval period. Personally, I lost it at ‘verily’.
