“Well, there’s your problem”, also known as “Well, there’s your problem right there”, is a phrase used to point out an obvious issue in a situation. It’s often used for Demotivational Posters that have a picture of a fail usually involving large destruction. It can also be used to point out a person’s obvious mistake.
While the phrase itself has been around for years, “Well, There’s your problem” was originally used as a notable phrase by the Mythbusters, usually either after a big explosion, or after an unexpected result. However, the phrase began to be used by Jamie Hyneman whenever an experiment failed. The exact date of the phrase’s origin is unknown, but the earliest known instance that can be found is in 2005. In 2009, the video game Borderlands used a different version of the phrase: one of the sidequests was titled “Well There’s Your Problem Right There”. It’s unclear which of these is the cause of the phrase’s gain of popularity.
On July 28, 2010, Memebase user OverLolrd submitted a Demotivational Poster of a horse stuck in a pipe with the caption “Well there’s your problem”.
Since then, several other posters have been submitted and posted.
