I'm Your Idiot Forever is a redraw meme template based on a scene from The Big Bang Theory in which the character Bernadette, on a video call wither her husband Howard, calls him an idiot, resulting in him showing her his wedding band and saying, "I'm your idiot forever." The scene first became the subject of redraws in 2015 and gained viral spread over the following years.


On December 13th, 2012, The Big Bang Theory season six episode 11 aired, titled "The Santa Simulation."
