About

“I Don’t Want to Live on this Planet Anymore” is an expression and reaction image often used to show disgust or disappointment with others. Based on a character stillshot of Professor Farnsworth from the animated television show Futurama , the reaction image is frequently used on image boards and forums when replying to someone else’s post that is deemed irritable or disagreeable (See also Are You Serious Face).

Origin

The phrase “I don’t want to live on this planet anymore” comes from an episode of Futurama titled “A Clockwork Origin” that aired on Comedy Central on August 12th, 2010. In the episode, which parodies the well-known debate of creation vs. evolution, Professor Farnsworth can be heard uttering the phrase when he is told that his discovery of the “Homo Farnsworth” actually disproves evolution.[1]

On March 12th, 2011, a rage comic was submitted to the f7u12 subreddit with the Professor Farnsworth image in the final frame. The post received over 214 up votes prior to being archived.



Spread

A thread titled “95% of what I read on reddit causes this reaction” with an embedded YouTube clip of the Professor Farnsworth quote was posted to Reddit[7] on March 28th, 2011. The post reached the front page of Reddit, (comma) accumulating a total of 2,095 up votes prior to being archived. An image macro with the catchphrase was posted to 4chan’s /co/[8] board as a reaction face on March 30th, 2011.



The Farnworth image macro was added to reaction face database My Face When[11] on July 24th, 2011. A compilation of derivatives with the image macro was posted on the site Listal[10] on September 21st, 2011. The meme later spread to online communities like Tumblr[2], Memebase[4] and FunnyJunk.[5] A Facebook[6] fan page has 3.021 likes as of February 22nd, 2012.
