Anglican History as Told in Internet Memes
How the Internet would have debunked the myth that St. Patrick rid Ireland of all its snakes. Per The History Channel:

Water has surrounded Ireland since the end of the last glacial period, preventing snakes from slithering over; before that, it was blanketed in ice and too chilly for the cold-blooded creatures. Scholars believe the snake story is an allegory for St. Patrick’s eradication of pagan ideology.
