The Renaissance Would Be Horrified If They Ever Saw These Twisted GIFs (NSFW)

We imagine that Renaissance folks were a rowdy bunch, but even they would be collectively horrified if they ever laid eyes upon the delightfully sick and twisted GIF masterpieces of a man named James Kerr.

For the past year, Kerr has been creating a GIF (almost) every day, most involving medieval and Renaissance imagery. The traditional depictions of the prim and proper upper classes get the royal internet treatment with Kerr's irreverent mashups, giving lords and ladies a taste of 2013's naughtiest vices. Be warned, the following GIFs are truly hilarious and twisted. You will never be able to see the Renaissance the same way.
