"Meme Kid" Michael Watson.
Historians around the world were embroiled in a bitter debate last night after Oregon teenager Michael Watson made the claim that the emergence of memes had a larger cultural impact than The Renaissance.

The 15-year-old, whose interests include "4chan raids" and "reaction gifs", made the claim on Reddit's r/teenager subreddit:

"Lol. Who gives a shit about the art work of a bunch of old dead people? You say 'David, by Michelangelo', I say 'Scumbag Steve'. You say 'Leonardo da Vinci', I say '[10] Guy'. Did Domenico Ghirlandaio ever make it to the front page of Reddit? I don't f*cking think so."

"If he had submitted one of his paintings, it probably would have received less upvotes than the Unpopular Opinion Puffin meme about hitting women that I submitted last week."

Unpopular Opinion Puffin

"In 100 years time, children will be learning about the emergence of meme culture. Instead of learning about a bunch of gay ass Italian dudes, they'll be learning about meme artists such as myself."
