On October 7th, 2012, the “Princess Bubblegum” Facebook[3] page posted an image featuring a variety of poorly-drawn trollfaces to the “Hipster High Five Ghost” Facebook page (shown below). On the top row of illustrations, the third face from the right featured a caption which read "you have been coaxed / into a snafu).
