Reclining Sonic The Hedgehog saying Alone On A Friday Night? God, You're Pathetic

About

"Alone on a Friday Night? God, You’re Pathetic" is a quote said by Sonic the Hedgehog in an edit of a panel from the ninth issue of Archie Comics’ eponymous comic book series. Online, the popularity of the exploitable image has led to the creation of many variations in which the smug-looking Sonic and his quote are replaced with another fictional character asking a different question that ends with the snide expression “God, you’re pathetic.”

Origin

The original panel comes from the episode titled “What’s The Point?” published in Issue 9 of Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series on January 1994. In the main storyline, Sonic deliberately pauses the narrative in order to get some puns about trees “over with” (shown below).[1]One of the earliest appearances of the edited image online can be found in a post on 4chan's /sp/ (sports) board which dates back to August 2013.[3]

Spread

The earliest registered use of the picture can be found on the media sharing page Fybertech, uploaded by the user MDude on March 9th, 2012.[7] However, the picture didn't gain traction until late 2012. The phrase started spreading through Tumblr independently of the Sonic the Hedgehog image in late 2013, when several users, including cameos[4] and crywanking[5] posted it and received thousands of reblogs. One of the most popular reshares of the macro comes from Tumblr user hotelmario, who posted a screenshot in late 2014 of the macro being displayed as a featured post on Tumblr, which he captioned with "wow fuck off, tumblr". The post has over 40,500 notes as of November 2015.[2] The tag "god you're pathetic" is used to commonly refer to images using the exploitable format on Tumblr.[5]


I Want Shorter Games With Worse Graphics and I'm Not Kidding

I Want Shorter Games With Worse Graphics and I'm Not Kidding is a catchphrase calling for the video game industry stepping away from AAA video games in favor of smaller, less ambitious titles which demand less of people who work on them. Originating from a 2020 tweet, the phrase later was combined with the same Sonic the Hedgehog comic panel as the Alone on a Friday Night? meme, and the combined format achieved popularity as the I Want X and I'm Not Kidding phrasal template.


i want shorter games with worse graphics made by people who are paid more to work less and i'm not kidding. **** DU I WANT A Wendy's 4 for 4 AND I'M NOT KIDDING I WANT every single union in the entertainment industry to go on strike within the next month. i want the creation of media to come to a halt. no TV show, movie or piece of media is worth the exploitation of the creative working class. the industry has moved too fast to house those that fuel it. a total strike.
