About

OkBuddyRetard is a subreddit where users share ironic memes created to parody and satirize memes that they find to be normie or of poor quality. Memes in the subreddit typically parody image macros that use the impact font, which is associated with older memes and mainstream culture. These memes are generally captioned with nonsequiturs that are occasionally distorted through text overlays.

About a month and a half later, on December 10th, 2017, Redditor4] kirbizia launched the /r/okbuddyretard subreddit. According to the subreddit's creator,[4][5] the name of the subreddit is based on the Doge image. They write:

Hi I made the thing as asked in question so I think I can say some things about it. The initial idea for r/okbuddyretard was based on the "original" of an image of doge saying ok buddy, crossed out multiple times with the words retard. I got this image from people posting it in the r/bonehurtingjuice discord, so I can't say where they came from. I created the subreddit based on a image similar to what happened with r/bonehurtingjuice. Similarly to r/bonehurtingjuice just posted images I found on discord, reddit or other places that I found were funny and had a somewhat similar theme.

There's 31.3 thousand images in the gallery.

Does the archival bot really need to continue flooding the latest images page with this crap? I can't be the only who thinks there's a point where it stops being necessary for the archival bot's uploads to show up in the latest images---and I'd argue this gallery crossed that "do not show up in latest" threshold over 30,000 uploads ago.

Oh well, I guess I'll put it on the pipedream pile with the edit button and the reversion of the layout overhaul
