    About

    Whoops! Can’t show that in a Christian manga! is a gag censorship meme used for shitposting purposes on discussion sites and image boards such as 4chan.

    Origin

    The original image comes from the OEL (Original English-Language) manga Serenity, described by TV Tropes as “chronicling Serenity’s ensuing dilemmas as she tries to find peace and meaning in her life through Christianity” following her transfer to a new school.[1]

    A Reddit user on r/OutOfTheLoop explained that the series is “considered by both Christians and atheists to be pretty shitty. It became a meme thanks to 4chan and tumblr which started photoshopping the panel into hentai.”[2]

    Spread

    The earliest results on archives of 4chan’s anime and manga board, /a/, point to the meme surfacing in usage around February 2008.[3] DesuArchive also shows results from /co/ (comics and cartoons) stretching back to 2012.[4]

    About

    Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is a 2005 epic space opera film directed by George Lucas that tells the tale of Anakin Skywalker’s turn to the Dark Side of The Force, becoming the iconic Darth Vader.[1] It is the sixth Star Wars film overall, and the third and final film in the prequel trilogy. Years after its release, the film inspired an ironic fandom and the creation of memes revolving around its characters and dialogue.

    History

    Lucas began working on the script for Revenge of the Sith before production of Episode II: Attack of the Clones ended. The film began production in 2003 and was released in 2005. Revenge of the Sith broke several box office records during its opening week and went on to earn over $848 million worldwide, making it, at the time, the third-highest-grossing film in the Star Wars franchise. It stars Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Ewan McGregor as Obi-wan Kenobi, and Natalie Portman as Queen Amidala.



    Plot

    The film opens with Anakin and Obi-wan rescuing Supreme Chancellor Palpatine from the hold of General Grievous and Count Dooku. After a battle, Anakin beheads Dooku at Palpatine’s urging. Then, Anakin reunites with his wife, Queen Amidala, who is pregnant. Anakin has prophetic visions that Amidala will not survive childbirth. Chancellor Palpatine then tantalizes Anakin with knowledge of the Dark Side of the Force, including a way to stop people from dying. Eventually, Palpatine reveals he is Sith Lord Darth Sidious, and brings Anakin to the Dark Side promising the knowledge that only he can save Amidala. Anakin betrays the Jedi and has a climactic showdown with Obi-wan that leaves him scarred and burned while Amidala dies giving birth to Luke and Leia.

    Reception

    The film received generally positive reviews, particularly in comparison to the first two prequels, which were poorly reviewed. The film has a score of 68 on Metacritic[2] and a 79 on Rotten Tomatoes.[3] On Rotten Tomatoes, the critical consensus was “With Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas brings his second Star Wars trilogy to a suitably thrilling and often poignant -- if still a bit uneven -- conclusion.” However, the film was not without its critics, as professional critics and fans alike still bemoaned the dialogue, particularly the love dialogue. In his massive video review of the film, Mr. Plinkett pointed out the love dialogue was more comedic than romantic.



    Hayden Christensen’s performance “won” him a second Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Supporting Actor.

    Related Memes

    I Have the High Ground

    The climactic battle between Anakin and Obi-wan inspired the creation of several memes in existing templates. One of the most popular inspirations for memes was a line towards the end of the battle, when Obi-wan gains some leverage on Anakin and says “It’s over Anakin. I have the high ground.” Anakin attempts to jump over Obi-wan, leading to Obi-wan’s victory.



    The moment has inspired many image macros, and was parodied in a Robot Chicken sketch in 2016.



    General Grievous

    General Grievous is a villainous character from 2004’s Star Wars: Clone Wars who later had a more well known role Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Grievous appears at the beginning of the film, where he fights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker while holding Chancellor Palpatine prisoner. He fights Obi-wan in a later scene, where he is killed.



    Meme Generator Creation

    On February 2nd, 2014, a memegenerator template was created using Grievous’ image,[4] but the tone of the meme was never established and did not find widespread use.

In the image macros, the line is paired with various captions that alter the context.



    “I Am the Senate”

    Chancellor Palpatine’s line “I Am the Senate,” which comes at a crucial fight with Samuel L. Jackson’s Mace Windu, inspired memes in 2016, surging again in popularity around the same time as Grievous’ surge in popularity on /r/dankmemes.

    Related Memes and Catchphrases

    List of 1,004 Holds

    On the March 30, 1998 edition of WCW Monday Nitro, Jericho challenged Dean Malenko in an in-ring promo; Malenko claimed to be “The Man of 1,000 Holds”, so Jericho challenged that claim and proceeded to read a long list of 1,004 different wrestling holds. Jericho would continue to go through his list even past commercial breaks, until he was finally interrupted by another wrestler. The promo has since been the subject of parody, with wrestling fans often repeating the hold “armbar.” Jericho himself has parodied his promo, doing a variation where he names all the wrestlers he’s beaten.



    JeriTroll

    JeriTroll is an image macro series featuring an image of professional wrestler Chris Jericho, usually with overlaid text that depicts acts of trolling or deception. “JeriTroll” is also the name given to the act of Chris Jericho trolling wrestling fans.



    ASKHIM

    ASKHIM is a trend of Jericho’s whereby he shouts at the referee while engaging his opponent in a submission hold, demanding that the referee ask the opponent to submit. In online discussion, the term is frequently used when referencing Jericho.

    A Youtube video uploaded by user DamnMan90 in May 2009 features a compilation of “Ask Him” moments.[5]


    UrbanDictionary has a definition for “Ask Him”, also added in 2009, and defines the term thusly:[6]

    Awesome phrase, said to be WWE Wrestler Chris Jericho’s favourite sentence. Every match he applies a submission hold and shouts it every 5 seconds. He even did it once when it wasn’t a match and there was no ref in sight.

    Jericho applies the Walls of Jericho
    Chris Jericho: ASKHIM!

    Opponent doesn’t submit
    Chris Jericho: C’mon Ref, ASKHIM!

    Stupid Idiot

    In his 2015-2016 run in the WWE, Jericho took to calling his enemies a “stupid idiot,” which fans reacted very positively. Notably, at the Monday Night Raw after Wrestlemania XXXII, Jericho called the crowd “stupid idiots,” and they began chanting “We are idiots!”[7] (The clip is shown below among other “stupid idiot” moments.)



    The List of Jericho

    On September 19th, 2016, Jericho introduced “The List of Jericho,” which was originally intended to be a list of grievances he had against Mick Foley, but later turned into a list of people who annoy him (aka “Stupid Idiots”). Though unrelated, fans noted the list hearkened back to the “1,004 Holds” list Jericho used in his Malenko feud.[8] The List of Jericho was incredibly popular with fans, who would often cheer loudly when Jericho screamed “You just made the list!”

  • About

    A Mii is a free-form digital avatar used in Nintendo’s Wii, Wii U, Switch and Nintendo 3DS gaming consoles. The Mii concept allows users to develop a likeness (or a caricature) of themselves, other people, or invented characters. After creating a Mii using the Mii Channel on a Wii or the Mii Maker application on a Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, or Switch, Miis can be used as playable characters in various titles for each of the named consoles. The word “Mii” is often thought to be a portmanteau of “Wii” and “me”.

    Origin

    Nintendo’s first public debut of free-form personal avatar software was at the Game Developers Conference in 1997, during the Nintendo 64 era. There, Shigeru Miyamoto said that the personal avatar concept had originally been intended as a Famicom game, where a user could draw a face onto an avatar. Miyamoto commented that the concept could not be turned into a game and the concept was suspended.

Lonk can be seen as a fan-made alter ego of the officially licensed character, in a similar fashion to other corrupted versions of iconic video game and cartoon characters like Sanic (Sonic the Hedgehog), Mayro (Mario) and Dolan (Donald Duck).

    BigJB21/god i wish that were me is an screenshot of a comment on DeviantArt depicting user BigJB21 saying “god i wish that were me”.

    Origin

    On October 16th, 2012, DeviantArt user BigJB21 commented “god i wish that were me” on DeviantArt submission “Fulfillment” by misssusan002.

    Edits of the photo contain an image of a character or event with BigJB21’s comment under it. The combination of his comment and his depressed looking face conveys the idea that BigJB21 is somewhat of a loser, making just about any image you edit him to react to work comedically. Frequently the image is used in combination with a picture where a person is committing suicide or is being killed, though there are some where it’s more positive, or just bizarre. As far as anyone knows, the first usage of the comment was on sub-reddit r/CringeyAnarchy around a year ago. User CrimsonBlue90 posted a picture of a 3D model depicting a mother holding a baby with a very small head and included the “god i wish that were me” comment under it. Another thread was posted by Anonymous-IGNorant on IGN message boards around the same time.

    Little is known about BigJB21 himself, however, a screenshot taken of his profile before it was deactivated (sometime around June 2016) reveals he was 25, his real name was James Boyce and he enjoyed Minecraft and Pokemon. On a creepier note, the screenshot also showed that he had a collection of diaper fetish related images called “diapered kids”. Because of the submission he posted on, Reddit users have theorized he may have had a “deep rooted maternal connection fetish.” or that because of his weight he may have craved being small so bad it had become his fetish.

    Spread

    At the, it’s very difficult to pin down exactly which site the meme began to spread.
