"Aww Yiss" is an expression that comes from a series of comics by the Hark a Vagrant! webcomic artist Kate Beaton.[1] The expression is originally said by a duck receiving bread crumbs and has been used with images of ducks and birds being fed in the years since it was posted.


The original Beaton comic was uploaded to her website Hark a Vagrant![11] (shown below, left). While it is unclear when exactly Beaton posted the comic, it was posted sometime prior to November 4th, 2010, as a definition for "Yiss" appeared on Urban Dictionary that day.[2] Beaton redrew the comic in "Gorey Covers Part 5" (shown below, right).[12]



The Gorey Covers image was reposted several times on Reddit throughout 2012.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] The comic was also used as an exploitable at that time, with either the duck or the breadcrumbs changed (examples shown below).


In 2012, Tumblr user Kapi posted pictures of the bird cut out in a bucket of bread crumbs, gaining over 170,000 notes.[13]


The phrase has also been used outside of exploitable variations of the comic in templates such as image macros, advice animals and comic parodies (examples shown below).
