Technologically Impaired Duck is an Advice Animal image macro series featuring a centered image of a white duck with overlaid text conveying technological ignorance or misunderstanding.


The original image comes from a FreeFoto stock photo of a white mallard from March 31st, 2003.[1]

The image macros are rumored to have started on Memegenerator[2] in 2009 before being further popularized on 4chan’s /b/ board. The earliest found images contain the Memegenerator watermark, providing some evidence to support this rumor.


The earliest known posting comes from the personal blog of Joanne Casey on June 3rd, 2009.[3] An archived 4chan thread dates back to July 19th, 2009.[4] A Facebook page[5] was created in November of 2009, and as of June 2011 has over 1400 ‘likes’.

Derivatives have spread to sites like Tumblr[6], Memebase[7], FunnyJunk[8], and Reddit.[9]

Search queries had their first spike in June of 2009, the same month that it was posted to Joanne Casey’s blog.

Also, I felt like this guy when I first got my DS five years ago, and tried to charge it by painstakingly removing the battery cover and realizing that you just need to charge it.
