Admiral Akbar smokes a pipe

Guest contributor Jason Oberholtzer runs I Love Charts and Forbes’s Charts and Leisure.

In 1928-1929, a 30-year-old René Magritte painted La trahison des images, which depicts a pipe with “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” (“This is not a pipe”) written underneath. La trahison remains arguably Magritte’s most recognizable painting, even more famous than his gentleman with apple faces.

The better part of a century later, people are still obsessed with the concept and, as is the logical next step these days, his classic painting has become memeified. Below are my 24 favorite Magritte parodies.
