Tuesday’s Memes – Prince

I figured it was finally time to do a collection of Prince memes because he deserves it.  It was a shock when he died, but with all the music he has left behind it will be a long time he is ever forgotten.  So let’s not forget him.  Sit back and enjoy this collection of memes I found throughout the internet.  I laughed at times and I hope you will as well.  Enjoy!!!

These two just go together so perfectly…
