"Coaxed Into a Snafu" refers to a series of poorly drawn rage comic and advice animal characters that are captioned with variations of popular Internet catchphrases. The illustrations typically mock the way Internet memes are incorrectly used on sites like 9gag and Reddit.
On October 7th, 2012, the "Princess Bubblegum" Facebook page posted an image featuring a variety of poorly-drawn trollfaces to the "Hipster High Five Ghost" Facebook page (shown below). On the top row of illustrations, the third face from the right featured a caption which read "you have been coaxed / into a snafu).
On October 13th, 2012, a Facebook page titled "You have been coaxed into a snafu" was launched.

Prior to being archived, the post gained over 1,700 up votes and 50 comments.
