Comfy Guy is a variant of Awesome Smiley
In this case the unanimous adoration of comfort. Otherwise known as ‘COSY’, an almost zen like state in which the anon gamer, reader, movie watcher or casual forum troll settles into their most comfortable spots and relax for some good times in a cosy environment. This unusual sense of camaraderie amongst the anons of multiple boards caused a new type of off topic meta meme thread to be born.


The Comfy Guy became adopted by users on 4chan sometime in 2010, with a single response macro image of a man wrapped in a blanket looking satisfied to show two posters share a similar love of a comfortable situation.

The Comfy Guy General.

On 4chan, the original comfy guy image or ‘COSY’ is typically used in entertainment-oriented boards such as /v/, /co/ and /tv/ to discuss commonly shared experiences of comfortable situations, like perfectly lazing in bed or being under warm blankets on a winter’s morning. Whilst “COSY” threads may be seen as off-topic on any 4chan board, it remains one of the main recurring off-topic threads.

Cosy guy is NOT a variant of the awesomeface, it’s a variant of YOBA (youth oriented bydlo approved) a smiley face that originated on russian boards and Krautchan. Cosy guy did NOT originate on 4chan but on Krautchan’s /int/ section.
