This is the weirdest meme on the Internet. We’ve just made it weirder.

This is the weirdest meme on the Internet. We’ve just made it weirder.

If you have access to the Internet, you may have encountered photos of a cute shiba inu dog photoshopped into a variety of different contexts, with colorful Comic Sans text displaying the internal thoughts of aforementioned dog. Congrats: you’ve encountered doge. It is one of those memes that’s hot with the yoots these days and it is delightful. Read Adrien Chen for more background.

However, as wonderful as doge is, I don’t think I’m alone in hearing the word and thinking of Venetian doges, who led the Most Serene Republic for over a millennium, until Napoleon forced the last doge to abdicate. So obviously I decided the two doges needed to meet. The above is the result.

Thanks to Gawker user Miss Norma Desmond for the idea. Click “Know More” to read more on the doge’s role in the Venetian state.
