About

"Stahp", also known as “Becca Stahp”, is a four-pane comic series which typically consists of several illustrations or photographs depicting a disturbed-looking subject accompanied by captions based on the following snowclone template:

Panel 1: X
Panel 2: Wat R U Doin
Panel 3: X
Panel 4: Stahp!

Origin

The word “stahp” is an intentionally misspelled phonetic transcription of the word “stop,” which was introduced earlier in August 2011 through Stawp it, Rahn, another image macro series that pokes fun at the MTV's Jersey Shore cast member Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola's accent (shown below, left). The earliest known captioned instance of the series based on a photograph of a scornful-looking dog (shown below, right) was uploaded by Tumblr[1] user jmiliam on March 18th, 2012. Within six months, the post received over 124,300 notes.
