Your Honor refers to the webcomic "If the Tribunal Worked…" by comic artist Tim Buckley in which a plaintiff accuses the defendant of stealing his mid position in League of Legends. The comic went viral in April 2016 following in edit in which the plaintiff gets sentenced immediately after saying "League of Legends."
On April 29th, 2013, webcomic artist Tim Buckley (Ctrl+Alt+Del) posted a comic titled "If the Tribunal Worked…" (shown below). In the comic, a court plaintiff argues that the defendant should be convicted for going mid in MOBA video game League of Legends despite the plaintiff calling the role for himself. In the last panel of the comic, judge decides on the death sentence, with the last panel revealing that it was the plaintiff, not the defendant, who got sentenced.
Prior to April 20th, 2016, an unknown user posted an edited version of the comic in which most of the text was edited out with only the phrases "Your Honor," "League of Legends" and "Death" left. On April 20th, 2016, Tumblr user aintlikethatnow recreated the meme (shown below), with the post gaining over 88,400 likes and reblogs in four years.
Starting in 2019, the comic became a popular subject of parodies in the following years, with the statement made by the plaintiff usually replaced by curt, often nonsensical phrases. For example, on July 7th, 2019, Redditor CannedWolfMeat posted an edit that gained over 2,100 upvotes in six months (shown below, left). On November 10th, 2019, Redditor ImMemable posted an edit that received over 4,100 upvotes (shown below, right).
On December 31st, 2019, Instagram user hd_chungles used the meme as a part of an edit that spawned The Man Behind the Slaughter meme.
