C'mon, Do Something is a photoshop meme featuring an exploitable illustration from the webcomic White Ninja, in which the titular character pokes a variety of things with a long stick.
In 2003, the webcomic White Ninja began selling merchandise featuring an illustration of the White Ninja character poking a dead fish with a stick (shown below, left). As of April 2017, image is currently being used as the masthead for the White Ninja animation series website (shown below, right).
On June 11th, 2015, Redditor KayakBassFisher submitted a version of the comic poking the mobile game The Simpsons: Tapped Out.

On April 17th, 2017, Redditor ALLCAPS-hashtag submitted a comic captioned with "When you run out of memes" followed by the character poking several different flags with a stick while saying "C'mon, do a world war" (shown below, left). Within 48 hours, the post gathered upwards of 14,100 points (87% upvoted) and 240 comments on /r/dankmemes.
