Commented on Navy Seal Copypasta

Why is the official “response” the one about ending the other person’s life as painfully as possible? There is no proof of that being the official response and that copypasta is completely unrelated.

Commented on Spaghetti Stories

This did not start at BodyBuilding.com

The Bodybuilding thread which is the “earliest possible origin” is actually greentext obviously from 4chan with the arrows replaced with dashes. This becomes more obvious if you read the rest of that thread. It even reads in greentext format and the spaghetti stories are older than 2010.

Rumours are that it originally was used because of a /fit/ story on some guy who kept spaghetti in his pockets for a quick carb boost and was afraid of it falling out.

Commented on Oh Crap / OMG Rage Face

“PS3 has no games” is a 4chan /v/ meme. The origin of this face was a /v/ comics thread. It’s not the raisins face, that was made quite a while after the ps3 comic.

Memes =/= Image macros.

As annoying as this whole thing is, I find the irony deliciously sweet about how Reddit, FJ, and even you guys – KYM owned by Cheezburger are crying out how memes are being killed.

Commented on Advice Dog

The spread of the original advice dog was to give terrible advice while raiding other communities. This was done by 4chan – forced meme at first but became widely popular because of its derivatives. Some notable ones being Philosoraptor and Courage Wolf.

At this point in time it seems like the derivatives are only playing up stale regurgitated jokes with a non-animal in the background. There is a difference between image macros and advice animals. Know the difference, it could save your life.

Commented on Advice Animals

What? This article doesn`t even mention 4chan in it. The original cause of how it even became popular or mutated.

Commented on I Took an Arrow in the Knee

Can’t come up with anything interesting to say? Just slap on whatever with an arrow to the knee.

HILARIOUS!

Commented on Rage Comics

The Me Gusta face is not from reddit. IF you read through the thread, the supposed creator said he posted it and it became popular on /b/. From there, it spread onto the rest of the internet. As an oldfag, I can confirm the origin.

Commented on HNNNNNNG

This meme is now evolved into a reaction to cuteness overload. When something is beyond cute you HNNNNNNNNNNNNNG.

Commented on Candlejack

Candlejack meme doesn’t end with a dash. It stop abruptly mid-word.

Example:

“I’m sick of hearing all this garbage about candlejack, it’s not amu”

instead of:

“I’m sick of hearing all this garbage about candlejack, it’s not amu-”

Commented on What's All This Racket? / Mirada Fija

This is definitely from 4chan. Specifically from the /a/ board. Here is one of the archived original threads by the guy who drew it: http://green-oval.net/cgi-board.pl/a/thread/20520037

He drew others in this series. The last panel of the original is now used commonly in rage comics.
