Tell An Amazing Fact refers to a series of image macros featuring the Microsoft digital desktop assistant BonziBuddy. The meme contains two parts, the first shows BonziBuddy reading a piece of paper, as a cursor selects "Tell An Amazing Fact." The second part shows BonziBuddy looking up with a speech bubble above it that contains an offensive, absurd or humorous phrase.
"Tell An Amazing Fact" features the processes from and image of BonziBuddy, a digital desktop assistant, introduced on Microsoft's Window platform in 1999. The purple gorilla mascot, however, did not appear until 2000. In addition to adding search bars to web browsers without user consent, leading to a lawsuit, users could ask BonziBuddy do things like sing, dance and tell jokes and "amazing facts."
