About

I'd Sell You To Satan For One Corn Chip refers to a painting of a bird by Matt Adrian captioned "I'd sell you to Satan for one corn chip," originally published in the 2012 comedy artbook The Mincing Mockingbird Guide To Troubled Birds, which features similar pieces of art showing Troubled Birds with captions that paint them as aggressive and angry. The image spread online over the following years and became the subject of image macros, typically used as a reaction to show hatred.

Origin

On March 8th, 2012, Matt Adrian of The Mincing Mockingbird,[1] a husband-wife artist duo that sells original products, books and art pieces mostly based around birds, published The Mincing Mockingbird Guide To Troubled Birds, a comedy art book that includes original paintings of troubled birds with aggressive captions attached. One of these images shows a bird with the caption "I'd sell you to satan for one corn chip" (shown below). On January 10th, 2013, Tumblr[2] user mercerism shared a number of images from the book including the corn chip bird, gaining over 105,000 notes and helping spread the image.
