“That’s The Evilest Thing I Can Imagine” is an expression used to ironically highlight juvenile pranks or trolling schemes, in a similar vein to the phrase “Some Men Just Want to Watch the World Burn.” In image macros, the phrase is usually accompanied by a screen capture of cartoon characters HIM and Mojo Jojo from the animated television series Powerpuff Girls.
In Season Six Episode Two of the Powerpuff Girls, originally aired on July 16th, 2004, the villain characters Him and Mojo Jojo compete to win the respect of the Rowdyruff Boys by demonstrating evil deeds. As HIM and Mojo Jojo fight with each other over who is the most evil, the Rowdyruff Boy Brick declares that he only cares about destroying the Powerpuff Girls, to which Mojo Jojo replies “Why, that’s the evilest thing I can imagine!”
Brick: "SHUT UP! We don’t care which one of you is more eviller, or more stupider or whateverer! There’s only one evil thing we care about! And that’s destroying the Powerpuff Girls!
Mojo Jojo: “Why, that’s the evilest thing I can imagine!”
