This originated in 2006 at the now-defunct (and apparently un-cached) blog, modernarthur.com. There, blogger Charles Lavoie made that argument that any New Yorker cartoon could be captioned with “Christ, what an asshole!” with no loss of comedic value. The earliest available references include these from February of 2006 at Wonkette and Gawker.

In April of 2010, Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing noted that applying this principle made all cartoons funnier – even “Family Circus” and “Marmaduke” – and linked to this collection.

It has become familiar enough now that it can stand alone as a pithy blog comment, as in this response to a post on Rick Perry. It also seems to have potential for crossing over into other memes.
