Tommy Lee Jones with a Newspaper, also known as Implied Facepalm, is a screen capture of the actor Tommy Lee Jones giving a disapproving look while holding a newspaper. It is often used as a reaction image and has spawned many derivatives.


The original image is one of promotional pictures for the 2007 thriller film No Country for Old Men. The picture comes from a scene between Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) and Deputy Wendell (Garret Dillahunt).


On December 16th, 2008, a demotivational poster featuring the Tommy Lee Jones image with the caption “Implied Facepalm” was highlighted on the website De-Motivational-Posters.[2] The term is defined as “When something is so utterly stupid, a full and proper facepalm is not even necesarry.”

On March 10th, 2009, the definition was submitted to Urban Dictionary by a user Dudeman42.[3] On September 15th, 2012, Imgur user outofexile[1] created a gallery of derivatives featuring characters from the multiplayer online battle arena game DoTA 2.

Notable Examples

Aside from DoTA, other image derivatives include characters from franchises like Dark Souls and Pokemon.
