About

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."

Origin

On April 29th, 2013, webcomic artist Tim Buckley[1] (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.


CTRL+ALT+DEL BУ TIM BUCКLEY YOUR HONOR, I BRING THIS CASE BEFORE YOUR TRIBUNAL TODAY TO SEEK JUSTICE FOR GRIEVOUS EMOTIONAL INJURY AND A BLATANT DISREGARD FOR THE RULES. UPON ENTERING A LEAGUE OF LEGENDS GAME LOBBY AND FINDING MYSELF FIFTH-PICK, I IMMEDIATELY AND CLEARLY DECLARED "MID OR FEED", INVOKING THE ANCIENT RIGHT OF "I CALLED IT SO IT'S MINE." THE DEFENDANT THEN PROCEEDED TO IGNORE ME AND FIRST-PICK MID ANYWAY! I THREATENED AND WHINED, AND HE STILL IGNORED ME. ARE YOU GOING TO STAND FOR THIS BEHAVIOR?! NO. THE SENTENCE IS DEATH. BUT I CAAALLED IT. WWW.CAD-COMIC.COM

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[2] user aintlikethatnow recreated the meme (shown below), with the post gaining over 88,400 likes and reblogs in four years.

Spread

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[3] CannedWolfMeat posted an edit that gained over 2,100 upvotes in six months (shown below, left). On November 10th, 2019, Redditor[4] ImMemable posted an edit that received over 4,100 upvotes (shown below, right).

The truncated version gets the point across much better and is far more hilarious; I can't even think of the "your honor: League of Legends; DEATH" exchange without cracking up.

The original version, by comparison, is a slog to read, and within the first two sentences it blurs together into a mess of jargon and overexposition. Granted that's true of many court cases, but for a comedy webcomic it's not exactly exemplary writing and is just one of many examples of Ctrl+Alt+Del's mediocrity.
