About

I Just Wanna Grill for God's Sake is a series of image macros depicting an illustration of a grown man using a grill under the caption "All the media says is 'racism, shootings, socialism, KKK' I just wanna grill for God's sake." The meme has been used as an ironic image to mock the sense of humor associated with baby boomers online. The meme is also known as The Griller.

Origin

The earliest known usage of the image was posted by an anonymous Imgur [7] user on March 12th, 2018. The post received 12,000 views. Redditor[8] DrugThrone took credit for the image in a thread in the /r/terriblefacebookmemes subreddit several months later, linking to the original post in the /r/MillionDollarExtreme subreddit. However, due to that subreddit's banning, the post could not be verified.
