       Snails aren’t the only animals that have a starring role in medieval memes. In a strange twist, cute little rabbits were sometimes shown as violent and crazy killers in medieval drawings. This is somewhat confusing, as people usually connect rabbits with good things. People generally viewed them as kind and gentle creatures. For example, rabbits are frequently shown in scenes with Jesus because they are pure and harmless.

   However, in some medieval drawings, they are turned into killer rabbits. There are drawings of rabbits capturing people and beating them with sticks. So, what gives? Most likely, showing rabbits as crazy and evil was to represent the world turned upside down. People found it funny because it was the opposite of what happens in real life. For example, some drawings show rabbits getting their revenge on hunting dogs.

   Rabbits were also used to make jokes about fools, as only a foolish person would get captured by a rabbit. Aside from being a meme, these amusing images also reminded people to avoid doing dumb things. Believe it or not, in one book, there is even a drawing of a rabbit riding a snail into battle. The power of medieval memes is strong with this one indeed!
