Florida - The Antiques Roadshow has been doling out information and appraising rare and unusual objects for decades now. The show has created various clones of itself with international versions popping up in Canada, Sweden, Australia, and of course the USA. However, recently someone decided to finally give it one of those 1970's style Dean Martin-esque make-over roasts it so rightfully deserved - but with a 21st century twist.
Enter Keaton Patti, a Photoshop specialist, and salient meme humorist who takes legitimate freeze-frame photos from Roadshow appraisals (shown above), and turns them into fake one's for our viewing pleasure (shown below).
So, without further ado, here are a few of what we think might be some of the funniest fake appraisals memes of the Antiques Roadshow that we've ever seen...
There are of course many more of these types of memes online (not all "G" rated however), but we thought these seven particularly represented the ethos of the Roadshow quite well, while simultaneously giving a wee chuckle. However, if you've managed to come across a few more you think should also be included, please let us know, and we'll be happy to take a look...
