Is This Some Sort of Peasant Joke? is a meme involving a gif or screenshot of a clip from Horrible Histories in which a medieval rich man asks 'I'm sorry, is this some sort of peasant joke that I'm too rich to understand?' when one of his peasants wants a pay rise.

The meme is often used as a reaction image/gif, particularly in instances where the person wishes to criticise a rich figure, either in real life or fandom.
