Comfy Guy, known on the Russian Internet as YOBA Face or ПеКа-фейс, is a character made by repurposing the middle frame of the Trollbait / Nobody Is Right exploitable. The face is often used in an image where it is wrapped in a checkered blanket, indicating the almost zen-like state in which in which the anon gamer, reader, movie watcher or casual forum troll settles into their most comfortable spots. On gaming image boards on the Russian Internet, where YOBA stands for "Youth Oriented, Bydlo-Approved", the exploitable is used as a reaction image indicating that the game in conversation is for "rednecks" or other lower-class types.
The original image of the sneering face was created by DeviantArt user 3-Angled-Blue in 2008, during an internal raid of the 4chan board /b/ by users of the boards /v/ and /trv/. 3-Angled Blue then posted the image to DeviantArt, where it has received over 70 comments since 2008.
The Comfy Guy became adopted by users on 4chan sometime in 2010, with a single response macro image of a man wrapped in a blanket looking satisfied to show two posters share a similar love of a comfortable situation. In addition, the face has been used in exploitable images on DeviantArt and Tumblr.
The Comfy Guy General.
On 4chan, the original comfy guy image or 'COSY' is typically used in entertainment-oriented boards such as /v/, /co/ and /tv/ to discuss commonly shared experiences of comfortable situations, like perfectly lazing in bed or being under warm blankets on a winter's morning. Whilst "COSY" threads may be seen as off-topic on any 4chan board, it remains one of the main recurring off-topic threads.
