In most cases, mocking the recently deceased with a series of hilarious memes is in extremely poor taste. However, we are making an exception in this case, seeing as how former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was kind of the absolute worst.
Scalia dedicated his career as a Supreme Court Justice to making sure essentially all oppressed groups — anyone who is not white, Christian, Republican, or male — stayed that way. He fought hard against women’s rights and LGBT rights, among others. If that’s not enough for you to see that the man was pretty damn awful, he also believed that elite universities are too fast-paced for African-Americans and that they should stick to less-advanced, slower-paced universities where they won’t be too challenged.
So yes, it is unfortunate for Scalia’s family that they lost a loved one, but we also think the world is just a little better with him out of it. In addition to there being one less right-wing nut job out there, Scalia’s death has also brought forth these hilarious, albeit a touch insensitive, memes.
Maybe he knew that a Democratic victory was inevitable, so he decided to gracefully exit rather than admit defeat.
Apparently being pro-life does not save you from death.
Really, America, and the world, got a little bit better last Saturday night.
Scalia took it upon himself to make plenty of decisions about women’s bodies, so it’s only fair that women return the favor.

We were all thinking it.
BONUS! For even more laughs, watch Coheed and Cambria put some of Scalia’s opinions to song. This video, from Funny or Die via Youtube, was made before Scalia’s death, but it is still a hilarious response to some of his ridiculous antics while he was alive.
Oh, Antonin. You created and contributed to so many problems while you were alive, but least you are providing us with plenty of humor in your absence. We can’t say you will be missed, and we know you will be replaced, hopefully by someone who is at least a little more liberal and a lot less horrible. Bye, Scalia.
