Not Funny, Didn't Laugh refers to a phrasal reaction and a series of memes initially circulated on iFunny which gained significant presence on YouTube and Instagram in early July 2019.
The exact origin of the phrase is currently unknown. On September 20th, 2018, iFunny User memethief6969 posted the earliest known image containing the caption, with the post gaining 2 smiles (shown below).
In the following months, the phrase has been used as a phrasal reaction and meme caption by multiple users on iFunny (examples shown below).
