About

"Feel Like a Sir", also known as "like a sir", is a catchphrase and rage comic character used to convey elegance, wealth and class. It is associated with Victorian styles like wearing a top hat, monocle or various types of mustaches, similar to characters portrayed in Verbose Memes image macros.

Origin

The earliest known instance using the character was posted by user "wberry" on Cuánto Cabrón on March 24th, 2011.[2] In the comic, a female friend compliments a boy's house to which he responds "no big deal" transforming into the "sir" character.


.Green..Me ha tocado hacer una trabajo con la tia buena de clase, Y Hola, hola! va a pasca, pasa! venir C casa!!! iQué casa tan bonita enes. No es para tanto... FEEL LIKE A SIR

Spread

The hacker group LulzSec, founded in early May of 2011, used a modified version of the rage comic character for their official logo with a glass of red wine added to the image. On June 10th, 2011, the first "like a sir" rage comic was submitted to Reddit[12] by user wofdih14 in which a pair of glasses are turned into an improvised monocle after being broken.
