About

“Are you Fucking Kidding Me?” is a rage comic character wearing a scornful facial expression that is typically used in reaction to someone else’s extreme stupidity, similar to the usage of Look of Disapproval (ಠ_ಠ) or X is not amused.

Origin

Like most rage comic style exploitables, the series is said to have started on 4chan, while the oldest known instance (shown below, left) has been uploaded to the internet humor site FunnyJunk[10] as early as on May 23rd, 2010. On the next day, a blank four-pane template[11] featuring the reaction face (shown below, right) was submitted by FunnyJunk user FunnyJunkBrah, which went on to inspire nearly 300 derivative comics[9] on the site during the last week of May 2010.



Spread

Less than a month later on June 16th, 2010, DeviantART user CruiserPL uploaded a transparent drawing[1] of the “Are You Fucking Kidding Me” rage comic face, followed by another version[2] (shown below) featuring the phrase as its caption on June 19th, which has been viewed more than 102,000 times as of September 2012.



Additional four-pane comics using the character have since emerged on other image-sharing communities like Reddit[3] and Tumblr[4], as well as a variety of internet humor blogs including Memebase[12], We Know Memes[5], RageComics.com[8] and SB Nation[6] among others.

Notable Examples

The rage face associated with the phrase “Are You Fucking Kidding Me” eventually became replaced by another rage comic character dubbed Are You Serious, based on the face contour of David Silverman of American Atheists wearing a perplexed facial expression during an on-air debate with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News.
