You've Yeed Your Last Haw is a slang expression based on the cowboy-associated interjection "yee-haw". Originating from a viral tweet and a development of Sad Cowboy Emoji memes, the expression was later combined with an image of Supernatural character Dean Winchester and circulated as an image macro.
In Autumn 2017 the interjection "yee-haw" or "yeehaw", originally popularized by the Western film genre, became connected with the Sad Cowboy Emoji trend. On October 20th, 2017, Twitter user @pienar posted "they always say yee haw they never ask haw yee". The tweet gained over 97,500 retweets and 252,000 likes in 14 months.

On October 20th, 2018, Twitter user @incorrectspn paired the expression with a still image of character Dean Winchester taken from Frontierland episode of the Supernatural television series. The tweet gained over 900 retweets and 2000 likes in five months.
In the following days, the tweet was reposted on several subreddits, with posts on /r/dankmemes and /r/reddeadredemption gaining over 2,500 upvotes and 4,400 upvotes in three months, respectively.
