This Pleases the Nut refers to a reaction image of a smiling peanut paired with the text, itself a riff on the This Pleases X snowclone. It is often used with captions which turn the use of "nut" into slang for an orgasm.
The statue used in the reaction image was erected by the Indiana Democratic Party in 1976 in Plains, Georgia, as a part of Jimmy Carter's election campaign. The statue references Carter's history as a peanut farmer and its grin is meant to resemble the then-candidate's.
On June 2nd, 2018, the statue was posted in /r/Bossfight, gaining over 200 points (shown below, left). On September 17th, 2018, the statue was posted to /r/CommentAwardsForum with the caption "This Pleases the Nut" (shown below, right).
In November of 2018, the image saw more use on Reddit with use in No Nut November memes. For example, a November 10th post by Victor-Benson on /r/memes gained over 2,300 points (shown below, left). On November 1st, /r/dankmemes user cheeseburger365 posted a joke that gained over 6,500 points (shown below, right).
While "nut" puns have been the most popular form the jokes have taken, the template has seen some other uses as well. On February 20th, 2019, Redditor shutupyoufuckface posted a Drakeposting parody to /r/dankmemes (shown below, left). A post in /r/SCPSecretLab using a character from the ARG gained over 300 points (shown below, right).
