Fistful Of Yen is a two-panel exploitable showing what certain fictional characters would do if offered a large sum of money, commonly resulting in sexual favors or other perverted stuff.


The meme traces its origin to the second episode of the second season of the popular anime K-On![1][2] (shown below, left), which first aired on April 13, 2010. In the episode, the group finds an old guitar. Their instructor tells them to pawn it, and it sells for ¥500,000 (roughly $6,500 USD). The group then starts wondering what they should do with their share when Ritsu, the drummer, waves ¥100,000 in front of Azusa, the rhythm guitarist. The image was capped and became viral on Japanese anime forums for a short while, eventually resulting in a second panel being added (shown below, right).


Various examples of the exploitable can be found on Russian blogs and websites, such as,[3],[5] and the Russian social media website vk.[6] Other examples can be found on the My Little Pony image board Deripbooru,[4] Memecenter,[7] and on Tumblr under the same tag.[8]
