A man who was trying to escape the fiery inferno of the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago was found in Pompeii, Italy. The photographs of the uncovered skeletal remains have been given a new life online in the form of a meme. The internet showed once again that it isn't afraid to turn even the most macabre photos into a new meme.

According to archaeologists who have pieced together the story surrounding the discovery, the man was fleeing to safety after managing to escape the first eruption but was crushed by a large stone in the process. The stone is believed to have been a door jamb that came tumbling down on the unlucky man.

Archaeologists also say they believe the man suffered from a bone infection and was about 35-years-old when he died. So far his head has not been recovered. As for what the internet thought of the discovery? Well, the memes speak for themselves.
