Kool-Aid Man at the Battle of Yorktown



This isn't quite how I remember the Battle of Yorktown, but presumably artist Joseph Griffith did careful research for this painting marking the 225th anniversary of that battle. This image is part of a post full of Kool-Aid Man references in pop culture at Jeremy Barker's Popped Culture.

Hey, that's exactly how I remembered it! Except i'm pretty sure Lucky the Leprechaun was there...

While artist Joesph Griffith does take some "Liberties" with his depiction of the surrender at Yorktown, it is an historical fact that George Washington often rode his beloved Triceratops, affectionately known as "Ol' Prickly Points", into battle. It was said that the very sight of him, charging into fray, musket balls ricocheting off Prickly Points, was enough to break the British lines, and send them running, in terrified retreat.
