How many of these meme faces do you recognize?

One of my favorites among these memes is the 'Sean Bean - One does not simply' featuring a still from the movie, 'Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring'. I liked it so much I even created my one for a popular satirical news blog.

|One does not simply suck an invisible penis|
