Overconfident Alcoholic (Depression Guy), also known as “Nuthin’s Funnier”, is an exploitable four panel comic used to convey one’s feeling of dismay after having a moment of epiphany.
The original comic is an excerpt from the opening panel of a short story comic strip illustrated by Jesse Nylund of Completely Serious Comics, originally uploaded on January 9th, 2011. In the scene (shown below, left), the character claims that nothing is funnier than “a monkey in a suit” after another passing person suggests that a baby in a suit with a cigar would be more humorous. Shocked, the character resorts to drinking alone in the depressing final panel. One of the earliest parodies of the comic (shown below, right) was used to critique someone for posting the original pane on FunnyJunk on June 6th, 2012. The parody urges that original content (OC) is funnier than reposts.
Additional iterations of the comic appeared with new captions on 4chan’s /sp/ (sports) board on August 3rd, 2012, followed by another instance on FunnyJunk three days later. That month, additional instances were found on mushrooms enthusiast forum Shroomery, the Dungeons and Dragons forums and mixed martial arts forum Sherdog. On September 7th, 2012, an instance comparing the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5 was posted to We Know Memes, where the series was dubbed “Overconfident Alcoholic Depression Guy.” Between August and September, three Facebook fan pages for the series were created, gathering more than 4300 likes combined as of February 2013. Over the next several months, Overconfident Alcoholic appeared on FunnyJunk, Memebase., deviantArt, We Know Memes and Meme Center.Additionally, a Quickmeme generator for the comics has gained more than 2200 submissions as of February 2013.
