About

Pick Up Line Panda is an advice animal image macro series based on a picture of a panda bear standing by a tree stub with a beer bottle. The captioned jokes typically begins with a predictable pickup cliche followed by a sentence that is contrasted by lack of subtlety.

Origin

The trope of cheesy pick up line cliches has been previously documented and explored through various internet humor sites[1] and the mainstream media prior to the rise of user-generated content on the web. The original advice animal instance was first posted via Reddit by user SotorDamotor on February 14th, 2011 in a thread titled “Introducing Pickup Line Panda [crosspost].”[2]



Spread

The thread was fairly well-received on Reddit’s AdviceAnimals subreddit and went on to spawn over a dozen of derivative uploads via Quickmeme[3] on the same day. Within days, the image macros swiftly spread across other internet humor blogs like Memebase[4], Urlesque[5] and FunnyJunk[6], as well as gaining a strong social network following through the Facebook fan page[7] and single topic Tumblr “Fuck Yeah Pickup Line Panda.”[8]
