something bad mustard happened.


The Mustard Man (a.k.a Mike ‘Nug’ Nahrgang) is a photoshop meme that first went viral on and eventually across other online forums like and YTMND. The photo in question depicts a dude cradling an oversized jar of yellow mustard and looking helplessly into the camera, while the foreground suggests something went terribly bad between the dude and the mustard.

By early 2004, his face began to appear in a number of YTMNDs, image macros and other lulz-rich contents.

In addition to image derivatives, short fan fictions (100-word stories) about the Mustard Man also became popular on [[disputable sources / more research needed]
