William H. Macy is getting the meme treatment after alleged college admissions scandal

This week, Fargo and Shameless actor William H. Macy has ended up getting embroiled in a college admissions scandal, and now his wife Felicity Huffman is facing allegations that she attempted to bribe officials to get their daughter into an Ivy League school. Court documents, which have transcribed a number of phone and email conversations, appear to show that Huffman emailed offering to make a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 to get their first daughter's SAT answers corrected.

As a result of these charges, a number of social media users have commented on the irony of the situation, and have been amused by the fact that the college admission scheme appears to be a lot like the plot of Fargo, in which William H Macy's character Jerry Lundegard attempts (and fails horribly) to extort money from his rich father-in-law by arranging his wife's kidnapping. Soon, the memes started pouring in, so we've decided to collate a few examples for your perusal. Scroll down to take a look:
