Saw Con refers to posts mentioning fictional event named "Saw Con" or "Sawcon," made with the intention to lure readers into inquiring about the event, with the author or other comments proceeding to reply "saw con deez nuts" or similar responses," which, when said aloud, sounds similar to "suck on these nuts." First gaining popularity together with Ligma and other similar jokes in July 2018, Saw Con variation maintained popularity through the following year.
The earliest known usage of "Saw Con" format was posted in a tweet by Twitter user @Rhymestle on June 17th, 2018 in response to a "Ligma" joke (shown below). However, it is likely that the format had been used prior to this, either offline or in private chat.
