About

That's Scary… I Don't Know is a panel from Gag Manga Biyori, a manga known for its nonsensical and non-sequitur joke style. The panel comes from a page titled, "True Power," in which a student can be seen flexing while surrounded by a mysterious aura, asking his teacher, "What is this? I can feel the power overflowing," only for the master to say, "That's scary… I don't know." The exploitable meme has become a way for people to joke about people in positions of authority being clueless during crucial moments.

Origin

The original comic is sourced from a page in Kosuke Masuda's Gag Mang Biyori. The page shows a student screaming and flexing his power while asking his teacher to explain what's going on. Instead, the teacher says with a worried expression, "That's scary… I don't know" (seen below, left). According to TinEye, the earliest known post of the panel was in Korean on the South Korean blog site "Egloos."[1]

The earliest known repost of this page online is a February 16th, 2013, post by Tumblr[2] user @koukiboy, who gathered over 140,000 notes in 10 years (seen below, right).
