About

Joke's On You, I'm Into That Shit is a reaction image macro featuring a screenshot from the 1984 fantasy animated television series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The meme features the character Skeletor pointing with the caption "joke's on you, I'm into that shit." Online, people use the meme to express acceptance of another's criticism as a point of pride.

Origin

On September 25th, 1984, the Masters of the Universe episode "The Great Books Mystery" aired in the United States.[1] In the episode, Skeletor points at fellow villain Batros, a frame later used in the meme (shown below).



The origin of the frame used as a meme is unknown. On September 14th, 2019, Redditor RienvenderVen in the /r/memes[2] posted the earliest known usage with the caption "When your friend shows you some fetish shit" (shown below).
