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.
