Bart Simpson’s Chalkboard Parodies are a series of exploitable images based on a memorable scene from The Simpsons in which Bart is shown writing on a chalkboard as punishment during after-school detention.

During the episode’s opening sequence, Simpson is shown writing “I will not waste chalk” repeatedly on a school chalkboard (shown below).
The earliest known customization app titled “Bart Simpson Chalkboard Sign Generator” was posted on the image macro site Txt2Pic in August of 2007, which allowed users to create custom images specifying the text shown on Simpson’s chalkboard (shown below).
On April 21st, 2008, Newgrounds Forums member Officer submitted a thread titled “Bart Simpson Chalkboard Generator,” which invited other members to submit custom chalkboard images using the image macro generator site AddLetters. On November 9th, 2009, the website BartsBlackboard was launched to host an archive of each chalkboard writing from The Simpsons. On April 7th, 2010, Ebaumsworld user dan_richard13 created a gallery of notable Bart Simpson’s chalkboard images.
