Homophobic Seal (also known as "Gay Seal") is a webcomic character that is known for its catchphrase "GAAAAAAYYYY." It is often added on to the bottom of an image to dismiss everything above as naive, weak or saccharine.


On November 5th, 2010, the webcomic blog Antics Comic[1] published a six-pane comic titled "Survival Insticts" in which two men embrace each other in an arctic blizzard in order to stay warm, causing a seal to yell "GAAAAAAYYYY."

why are you standing so close we're completely lost and alone to me? Kinda creepy, dude. in an arctic blizzard, remember? I'm conserving heat! oh yeah l know we need to huddle close Don't get all self-conscious, we're together for warmth, but it stillMILES away from anybody else! seems a little bit embarrassing Plus your choices are hug or die. .i guess so www.anticscomic.com

While speculative at best, the seal's punchline bears similarities to the line "Ha, Gayyyyy" shouted by Señor Ben Chang, a recurring character in the TV sitcom series Community, in an episode that aired on September 23rd, 2010.



The "Gay Seal"[2] single topic blog, which reblogs various Tumblr posts with the gay seal image, was created on August 10th, 2011. One of the first posts featured several screen shots of text messages followed by the seal with the caption “ULTRA GAAAAAAYYYY" (shown left). On February 4th, 2012, the FAILblog site Dating Fails[5] posted an image of a couple holding hearts with “I stole her heart… / …so I’m stealing his last name” (shown middle) written on them followed by the seal image. On February 14th, a post titled “Soulmates and shit” (shown right) was submitted to 9gag[4] by user phschrei. The image received over 5000 Facebook shares in 3 days. On February 16th, the same image was submitted to FunnyJunk.[3]
