They Told Me I Could Be Anything

After seeing this pic

I realised that there is no page for it on the site.
Anyone got any details on it? An origin for the phrase?
Could this be the first example?

Clarinet boy has been seen as early as December 2009, any earlier finds than that?

I’m not sure it’s big enough yet to be a meme. There have been many examples though, like Tax Master. I think the point is to show someone sad, like they aren’t content with what they became.

PTSD Clarinet was the first I saw.

PTSD Clarinet Boy is the first instance of the phrase from what I can remember.

Let’s take a look at google insights.

Now for some pictures

Made ‘da page. Will start uploading pictures and adding more details (not that there are any, it’s a fairly simple meme) soon.
