A Brief History of Skeleton Memes

It's Halloween on the internet, so it's time to watch the Skeleton Dance and enjoy a roundup of skeleton memes! Skeletons are a natural for comedy, since they can be made to look like and act like people without being identified as any particular person. They also symbolize death, whether it's death from time, boredom, or some weird curse. And you have to admit that seeing a skeleton trying to perform some human action that requires flesh is inherently funny. While skeleton humor goes back to ancient times, a link-heavy post at Motherboard begins their timeline of internet skeleton memes at 1996. One image contains possibly NSFW text. -via Digg
