About

Your Honor refers to a series of image macros in which a lawyer presents an absurd defense for their client, starting with the phrase "Your honor." The format gained popularity in /r/okbuddyretard subreddit in 2020 following a viral post and often features Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul character Saul Goodman as the lawyer.

Origin

On January 20th, 2020, Redditor[1] SunglassGaming posted a meme in which a defendant addressed the judge with the argument that he should be set free due to 524 people on the online petition platform Change.org demanding so. The meme received over 41,600 upvotes in six months (shown below).
