Holy crap, y'all, the Internet is having way too much fun with "The Young Pope." The HBO series, starring Jude Law, premiered Sunday, Jan. 15 on HBO. No clue if it will be a hit with viewers, but it has already graced Twitter with some hilarious memes. If the show itself is half as creative as the fans already mocking it, we will be truly blessed.

Check out some of the early irreverent tweets:


It's a bit surprising no one went for an Olivia Pope from "Scandal" angle, but there's still time.

During Saturday's TCAs press tour, Jude Law was asked if he had heard about the tweets, and it turns out this is his education on the very concept of a meme:

"Having spent the last week in New York and doing lots of press I've become very aware. But until this week I've been completely unaware of what a meme was." He added, "I hope [the memes] will prompt interest and intrigue. I don't know if meme trends are reflective of young people's interest but if so I hope [young viewers see the show]."

"The Young Pope" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
