About

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.

Origin

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.



Spread

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.
