Increasingly Verbose Memes, also known as Deconstruction Comics, are a series of multi-pane images featuring a preexisting meme poorly redrawn in MS Paint several times – or, alternatively, successively degraded using JPEG compression – accompanied by a caption rewritten to become increasingly verbose with each successive illustration. The reciprocal relationship between the increasing verbosity and the decreasing graphic fidelity is a characteristic of some ironic memes.


On May 8th, 2016, Imgur[2] user AFuckingWhiteMale posted a gallery of Breath-in, Boi examples, featuring several redrawn illustrations of the original image with verbose variations of the caption "breath in / boi" (shown below).

This type of meme has a number of names attached to it due, in part, to a lack of comprehensive structure when creating these types of memes. Some early, alternate names to 'increasingly verbose' include meme corruption, deconstructed memes, verbose memes, and meme decay .

In November 2016, YouTuber The Kase Reibe called the meme style a "progressively verbose" meme[6], giving rise to the now common name "increasingly verbose" as it picked up in /r/coaxedintoasnafu in December 2016.


The series Coaxed Into a Snafu features poorly redrawn variations of internet meme characters, along with reworded versions of their associated catchphrases (shown below, left). Additionally, the series bears many similarities to Verbose Memes, an image macro series featuring lengthy reworded variations of internet meme references (shown below, right). Similarly, the meme may be derived from Archaic Rap.

One of the earliest spin-offs dates back to October 7th, whenYouTube user 'The Kase Reibe' uploaded Press X to Doubt (below), a video spin-off of an L.A.Noire Increasingly Verbose Meme of the same name. Kase Reibe (presumably) narrates the increasingly verbose meme with their own voice, with their audio quality degrading over time in tandem with the video resolution.

On December 11th, Redditor Stop_Drop_And_Roll submitted an increasingly verbose image based on a picture of the Heavy Weapons Guy from Team Fortress 2 with the caption "put a dispenser here" (shown below, left). Within three weeks, the post garnered upwards of 3,700 votes (89% upvoted) and 70 comments on /r/tf2.[5] On December 20th, Redditor ChronicVenom submitted a post asking about the series to /r/OutOfTheLoop,[4] including an increasingly verbose version of Big Smoke's Order (shown below, right).

put a dispenser here dear man known as "engineer", I request a dispenser be erected in a qeneral loci around or at our current location Dear sir "Engineer" who is a person who generally is related to constructing and repairing mechanical devices, I am currently making a request of you. I have run out of health or ammunition, and as a result need a dispenser erected in this general area My most sincere apologies to you, sir engineer; as it pains me to interrupt your everyday activities here in the badlands, but I have an urgent request pending that I absolutely need attended to. Due to the fact that I am low on either ammunition or health (some may refer to them as HP or "Hit Points") which are used as digital representations of how much damage a character can take before it will die. Due to me being low on one of these two things, I am requesting that you construct, and erect a device that will dispense both ammunition and medical supplies to me in order to fix these two issues L am naving pootis I'll have two number a number 9 large,a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda. I will order the number 9 twice, also once again but larger, alongside a number 6 with more than average dip, plus one number 7, and the number 45 twice, once with cheese from a cow, and a large beverage May I please acquire not one but two number 9s, as well as a larger version of the previous item I have ordered, and also including a product named a number six, with additional dipping sauce, a number 7 hould also be added, as well as two products known as number 45s, and may one of them have a dairy based product known as cheese on it, and to finish my order a larger sized drinking beverage. The food of which I shall be requesting right now will consist of a food you serve referred to as the "Number 9" of which I will request two. I would also like a variation of this but with a significant increase in it's size. May I also perchance obtain another product, the ber 6, with a substantially increased nge of dippable sauces to use. Furthermore next obtainable food would have to be a 7, but of course not forgetting the two products I desire known as Number 45s which will be split into a category with and out cheese. To finish off my order of which will shortly consume, I request a fluid tance to quench my constant thirst. I, a male of the human race, need to acquire sustenance in order to suvive. You may provide this for me in the shape of calorie filled food products. For example, the calorie-filled meal called a Number 9, but in fact doubled to increase the ount of sustenance obtained. To induce further nger removal, I must simply demand that a ber9, but with more atomic particles sing the size, is served. A non- nown as dip, that can come in a variety placed within my order of a Number 6 still craveable meal called the Number 7 is to the meal, but let us not forget the humble at b Nunaber 45s, that are often served as a twin meal to satiate the Humans also must intake fluid in order to survive quire an assembly of particles that form liquid, altered to become fizzy, thus maki...
