“How About I Slap Your Shit?” is a popular catchphrase associated with a stillshot of David the Gnome, the protagonist character in the 1987 Spanish animation series “The World of David the Gnome.”
The still shot originates from an unknown scene in “The World of David the Gnome,” an animation series exploring the world of gnomes in great details through the main character David.
The origin of “How about I slap your shit” macro remains in veil but its earliest known instance dates to February 2010, which first appeared on 4chan during the height of Epic Beard Man frenzy. In the original AC Transit Bus Fight video, the quote “I’ll slap your shit” can be heard during the hostile exchange between Thomas Bruso and Michael:
Michael: I’d put my foot up your ass.
Bruso: I see tough guys like you and I slap the shit out of them.
Another passenger: Stop it!
Perhaps due to the arguable resemblance between David the Gnome and Thomas Bruso, some of the first Epic Beard Man image macros featured David with captions like “I’m a motherfucker” and “I’ll slap your shit.”
Throughout the first half of 2010, the image macro and the phrase became increasingly visible across 4chan and subsequently spread across other online communities, most notably on DeviantART where users began drawing derivative images based on the template. David the Gnome instance has been reblogged by various internet humor blogs such as Cheezburger and FunnyJunk. There’s also a Facebook Page titled “How About I Slap Your Shit”, not to mention the single serving site":/memes/single-serving-sites with the same title.
The image macro gained much of its popularity through usage on 4chan and other similar forums, typically in response to another member’s idiocy or ramblings. There are dozens of derivatives based on the original template, featuring David as other recognizable characters, mostly related to videogames.
