About

Peter Griffin Explains the Joke, also known as Explain-It-Peter, refers to an ironic meme format in which an additional panel is added to a humorous image with Family Guy character Peter Griffin explaining the joke. The format gained significant spread in ironic meme communities in Autumn 2018 and reached mainstream attention in May 2019.

Origin

Before March 11th, 2018, now-deleted ironic Facebook page Boobs Guns Freedom Beer and TRUMP posted a meme in which Family Guy character Peter Griffin explained an older meme in an additional panel. On March 11th, 2018, the post was submitted to /r/comedyhomicide subreddit where it gained over 2,100 upvotes in six months.[1]


OH HELLO DARLING FREE DOM NNESS YOU'RE HOME-EARLY LOL! Muslims aren't allowed to eat bacon and drink beer, which makes the joke funny! It implies the wife does it while her husband is away.

Spread

On September 12th, 2018, ironic Facebook page Boobs Guns Freedom Beer and TRUMP 2: Dale Earnheart Jr's revenge reposted the meme, with the post gaining over 200 likes in eight months.[2] In the following weeks, multiple memes following the format were posted to the group (examples shown below).[3][4]

WHEN NEWBIES BRAZE ALUMINUM USING THE TIG METHOD OF WELDIN, THE TEXTURE OF THE JOINT IS VERY SIMILAR TO THAT OF MULTIPLE DIMES STACKED ACROSS LIKE FALLEN DOMINOES. HENCE WHY THE MEME SAYS "LAYING DIMES" This was a terrible day. First my ex got hit by a bus. FREEDOM Then, I lost my gapbagap.com job as a bus driver. gapbagap.com LOL! This meme is funny because it implies the boy was the one who ran over the ex, because the ex got hit by a school bus, and he was a bus driver! Hopefully his ex was a teacher! THE COMMON SENSE CONSERVATIYE OXYGEN IS REALLY GOOD FOR PEOPLE. I RECOMMEND THAT PEOPLE BREATH IT. LIBERALS BE LIKE NOT TODAY SATAN! YES, THEY'RE REALLY THAT STUPID! This made me LOL (Laugh Out Loud) because it reminded me of stupid liberal millenials and how they constantly try to make everything Commander-in-Chief President Donald Trump says look a bad thing even when it is good, like breathing (like in the picture). Can we get 50 Likes?

Pentagon Hexagon OBAMAISGON Octagon Now this, this is a meme l can stand behind. As a proud conservative mother of 5, cannot recall how many times these millenial liberals have spoke about obama like he's some kind of god! Crazy, right?! Well... This collage makes fun of that as obama is out of the office which means we can finally rebuild our country! How manbizzas do, vou vant? - How many pizzas do you have?

CLEARLY THIS ISA SIGN OF CHILD ABUSE AS THE BIG BOY HAS SEVERE EATING ISSUES NORMALLY HUMANS ARE NOT OVERWHGHTSO THATS WHY ITIS FUNNY TO MAKE JOKES BECAUSEHE IS DIFFERENT HA DO YOU GET IT LIKE IF YOU AGREE Hey guys, it's Peter again. That part where I explained the joke was very funny. In most cases, basically explaining the joke to the xiewer ruins the joke, but the reason while this is stl funny is because Peter 1 is doing ironically and the people who will view this meme will most likely understand that.

If children aren't vaccinated, they can spread disease to other children who are too young to be vaccinated or to people with weakened immune systems, such as transplant recipients and people with cancer. This could result in long-term complications and even death for these vulnerable people.

IDENTITY THIEFIS NOTAJOKE JIM While my friend Dwight here may be overreacting a bit, he does give a very good point. Identity theft can be very harmful towards the victims of it, and can end in loss of money or even family. If you or anyone you know is either a victim of identity theft or is doing so, please report it to your local police station.
