About

Wheeze Comic is an exploitable comic format meant to satirize the ridiculousness of meme-culture. The comic portrays a man hearing a "well-written, structured, original joke" and remaining unmoved, then seeing a bizarre or silly example of recent meme-culture and wheezing in laughter.

Origin

The comic was first drawn and published by Tumblr user 'patientno7[1]' on 23rd April, 2016, using Succ as the punchline. The comic, shown below, has accumulated 172,000 notes as of February 2017.

The comic quickly became a popular reaction image on me_irl. One long variation appeared on me_irl[3] the following day and gained over 3,200 points. Over the coming months, dozens of variations appeared, fitting various trending memes of 2016, as well as meta-versions that made fun of the template. The meme started seeing an uptick in popularity in February 2017, when posts about its worth began appearing with more frequency on /r/MemeEconomy[4]
