Come on, guys. Stay on topic. Actually contribute in the Meme Research section.

To answer your question, 12321pop2: Sure, it’s been used before, but the most famous use is the Simpsons opening sequence, and the pictures often resemble the Simpsons’ version or explicitly use Bart Simpson. While it isn’t the Ur Example of the blackboard trope, it’s certainly the Codifier and more or less the example that all the parodies follow.

Don’t kill me with hate,but how is the use of writing on the chalk board as torture is automatically a parody of The Simpsons?

Because Bart Simpson has became the world champion of it.
