Bro, Do You Even Scholarship?

Bro, Do You Even Scholarship? June 21, 2014

It struck me recently (perhaps when I noticed a look of exasperated eye-rolling condescension on the face of a Biblical scholar) that the “Bro, do you even…?” meme had yet to get a Biblical studies treatment. And so I made the following. Which scholars were included was determined solely by whether the expression on their faces matched an appropriate expression of this sort.

If you are wondering why Bob Cargill is on here twice, it is simply because I expect this to be the sort of thing that he’ll get a kick out of, and also because he was the first scholar I expected to find a photo of rolling his eyes – although I didn’t find the photo that I thought I would.

Who else deserves to be part of this meme? Make your own and share them!

    These expressions are priceless. No doubt this would be even funnier if one had any idea who the various people were, but the the pictures can stand on their own.

    • It would be interesting to see how many people who are not students or scholars in the field of Biblical studies could identify the people in the pictures…

    I was only able to recognize two scholars, but I thoroughly enjoyed the humour:)
