Who said Renaissance art isn't funny? Okay, so maybe on it isn't, but thanks to Montreal artist James Kerr, also known as Scorpion Dagger, the works of the Renaissance era have gained new comedic life. Reworking classic paintings and figures into GIF form, the works of Scorpion Dagger are equally hilarious and artistic as he reinvigorates traditional works with a modern twist. Fusing fictional characters, cultural icons, and his own personal whims into recreated Renaissance paintings, these GIFs are a new form of art and comedy. See what I mean in the GIFs below.

Can't make it to the Bas Saint-Laurent this summer? No problem. The city's latest culinary catch, Pincette, is landing in Old Montreal.
Led by Chef Khelil Ben Ammar formerly of Nelligan and Su, and "inspired by Montreal's vibrant culinary scene," the new Montreal lobster bar aims to "bring the East Coast experience to Montreal," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The décor sets the scene. The dining room evokes an elevated lobster shack with a "chic Montreal-European vibe." It even has charming lobster trap light fixtures.
Among the mouthwatering menu items are lobster mac n' cheese, a lobster roll, lobster poutine and a lobster club sandwich, as well as many other seafood treats and dishes (gotta highlight the cod fritters!).
In what can only be described as WTF, a video posted to Café Myriade's Instagram page shows an unknown individual approach a row of flowers planted in front of the cafe's avenue du Mont-Royal location and pull out a whole bunch of them while another individual looks on.
But the real question is: why?
For its part, the café did have a good sense of humour about this.
Café Myriade told MTL Blog that this happened at 3:45 a.m. on Monday morning. They didn't file a police report.
"We did replant what we could," they said.
"If it needs some filler we will gladly do some gardening."
