About

Gahhh, I Don't Get It, Is It Political?? refers to an image of a comic character overanalyzing a silly cartoon, trying to find some hidden message in it. The image, which originates from a comic by Really Good Comics, has been used as an exploitable meme and reaction online for instances of people trying to view apolitical entertainment through a prism of politics, and with the image on the screen often replaced with the subject of their efforts.

Origin

On September 17th, 2018, webcomic artist Really Good Comics (@ReallyGoodComics) posted a nine-panel comic about a character overanalyzing a silly cartoon and trying to find a deeper meaning in it to X / Twitter and Gab[1] (censored version shown below, left; X post since removed). In the third panel of the comic, a character is looking at the cartoon on their computer screen, exclaiming, "Gahhh… I DON'T GET IT. Is it political?? What's the message in this????" (censored version shown below, right).
