About

Me Gusta is a rage comic face that is typically used to express one’s approval of an awkward or perverse situation. The caption “Me gusta” translates to “I like it” in Spanish. In its beginning, the phrase conveyed an odd sense of pleasure in sexually perverse contexts, but the meaning has since broadened to describe a more general state of being disturbed and pleased at the same time.

Origin

The colloquial Spanish phrase “Me Gusta” was first adopted into a rage comic drawing by illustrator Matt Oswald, who uploaded his artwork onto 4chan [5] and Reddit [6] on March 18th, 2010. The drawing was also uploaded onto his personal Tumblr blog[3] and DeviantART[4] account. Oswald eventually revealed himself as the creator of “Me Gusta” face in a Reddit thread[1] as well as an Ask Me Anything (AMA) thread[2] on March 8th, 2011.
