To celebrate their eighth year of serving up nostalgic art and meme-y goodness, Gallery1988 Melrose in Los Angeles held a tribute art show "based on the Internet's best inside jokes." Memes opened on Friday night, and the next day "Randall" -- the voice talent of the very swearword-filled Honey Badger video -- was on site to entertain and to sign some of the honey badger related prints. Consequences will never be the same.

We've collected some of our favorites from the over 100 works at Gallery 1988 as well as the meme-centric posters promoting the show. All photos via Gallery 1988 unless otherwise noted. Paintings and prints for some of these are still available here. Watch out for those shipping charges. They're over under 9000.
