Brilliant historical Instagrams (AKA Histagrams) for a very Happy Monday

It's intriguing to think how the past might have played out had modern technology always exisisted – if cavemen had been able to tweet hunting tips like "directioners" tweet Harry Styles' whereabouts or if Marie Antoinette had had a Facebook fan page to broadcast her lavish court activities. Now a clever website titled Histagrams (tagline: "History depicted as Instagrams") has placed Instagram in the hands of past historical figures to wonderfully comic effect. From God posting an image of the Big Bang (to which "atheist" replies "#fake")to Hitler showcasing some early artworks for #TBT, here are 10 ingenious imaginings from the site which we hope will brighten up your day.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
