Web Catch: Tom Brady sketch artist's flop is Internet's fortune

See the solemn-faced man on the right in the above photos?

Do you immediately recognize him as New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady? The man married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen and one of People Magazine's contenders for Sexiest Man Alive?

The sketch is the work of veteran courtroom sketch artist Jane Rosenberg, who went as far as apologizing "for not making him as good-looking as he is."

Wednesday's court hearing on the 'deflategate' scandal took an amusing turn as the Internet collectively reacted to Rosenberg's sketch.

USA Today questioned if the artist heard "'deflate' and assumed it related to the drawing of Brady’s face."

Fusion published an article titled "This courtroom sketch of Tom Brady will haunt your dreams."

And then came the memes.

For your enjoyment, we've rounded up a few of our favorites:
