About

“You Ain’t Got No Pancake Mix!” is a memorable quote originally said by Zach Galifianakis as part of his stand-up comedy act. In 2008, the phrase became widely adopted as a comical retort against religious evangelism after a video of a college student interrupting a Christian evangelist’s sermon using the phrase went viral on YouTube.

Origin

The phrase “You ain’t got no pancake mix!” stems from a stand-up routine that was performed by comedian Zach Galifianakis as early as in January 1999 at Luna Park in West Hollywood.



However, the quote didn’t gain much online traction until on September 26th, 2008, when YouTuber piscator11[1] uploaded a video titled “You aint got no pancake mix!” The video features a student from Michigan’s Grand Valley State University yelling “You ain’t got no pancake mix!” at a women attempting to preach Christianity to the assembled students. As of October 2014, the video has gained over 3.7 million views.
