You Came to the Wrong Neighborhood, Motherfucker is an image macro series depicting a homogenous group of people or animals staring at the viewer in an intimidating manner, in similar vein to the SOON image macro series.


The concept of entering or moving into a “wrong neighborhood,” referring to a state of being racially outnumbered, has been explored through commentaries on interracial relations by American stand-up comedians, as well as sitcoms, music videos, and comedy movies such as “The Mighty Ducks”.[11]

The earliest known image macro instance of a clowder (shown below) was posted via FunnyJunk[1] on June 11th, 2009.


The same instance was resubmitted to FunnyJunk many times thereafter and spawned derivatives throughout 2010, but the caption “you came to the wrong neighborhood” didn’t become a frequently recurring image topic until early 2011 and began to spread on Tumblr[8], Reddit[6], I Can Has Cheezburger[9], Monorail[4] and eBaumsworld[7] among others. As of August 2012, there are at least 12 image submissions on Reddit[6] and 66 image posts on FunnyJunk[2] bearing the caption as the title.
