Hey, I’ve been seeing this around /b/ for the past while, and I’ve been wondering what people think of this, being how much and often it’s used, or even its origin.
People use it a lot from what I’ve seen for its intended purpose, as showing what they themselves were like, but it also spans many different fictional characters, too.
Here’s a few I’ve found, along with the template.






But this seems like a really widespread thing, it covers different races, sexes, classes, interests, and even ages.

Yeah, it seems quite similar. At the very least, it has the same guy in the template, which leads me to believe that those may be sort of related, with one showing one’s internet persona, while this is showing one as they progress through life.
And buterrin, that’s from Forrest Gump.

Sweet, thanks Jostin.

If any resident /b/tards would be willing to help me look for the origin, I would greatly appreciate the help.

I’m going off on vacation, so if anyone has any information, post it here. I’ll write the article when I get back in about 2 weeks.

I have seen a similar meme on Deviant art that involves drawing the same character but at different ages.
