The world is still recovering from the shock of the election of a non-European pope in the person of Argentinean Cardinal Jorge Martin Bergoglio, but the meme makers are not to be left behind.
Just hours after Sistine Chapel's chimney emitted white smoke and a French cardinal said, "Habemus Papam! - Pope Francis," pope memes started to be posted on the Internet.
Here are some of them.
First stop is his look alike - is it comedian Woody Allen or this cute pussy cat?
Some say he also look like actor Jonathan Pryce.
There is also the question if his papal name is from Francis of Assisi, who founded the Franciscan order, or St Francis Xavier, who is a Jesuit like the new pope.
But the Vatican immediately clarified that he was inspired by the saint from Assisi, which probably explains this next meme which shows an affinity for winged creatures.
However, one avian, apparently was late for the conclave
since a pope had already been selected from the 115 cardinal electors on the fifth round of voting.
That means only one thing insofar as shoe fashion is concerned - red is back! Paging Prada! A new customer awaits you or would Pope Francis favour an Argentinean cobbler instead?
The secrecy behind the conclave has also caught the interest of one cartoonist.
While one meme maker focused on the more serious topic of same-sex marriage.
Although then Cardinal Bergoglio once clashed with the Argentinean president over the same-sex marriage bill, she was the first to congratulate him on Twitter for his election as leader of 1.2 billion Catholics.
A former pope appears to have also given his thumbs up for Pope Francis.
Lastly, Pope Francis having a degree in Chemistry is not lost on meme makers too.
