Original posting

Why So Serious? (Y SO SRS?) is a meme from the Batsman movie Teh Dark Knight, which was called "Teh best movie evar" by every 13 year old fanboy who saw it; upon exiting the film, each group of 13 year old boys gathered together, fapping furiously to their newfound quote. The 'tards at /b/ downloaded a pirated version of the movie, probably while searching for CP and decided that since their new favorite an hero keeled over epically, he should be a new meme. This meme also made a spin off as a new type of Oh Exploitable thread on 4chan's /b/, and moar crappy shoops on /gif/. This meme was probably devised by /b/tards as a way to forget their horrible past with their THIS IS SPARTA! meme, though everyone already knows that 4chan is fucked up as it is, and the fact that this meme is just the same thing but starring some dead guy noone cares about who wears a bunch of makeup and laughs like a squirrel on a Wednesday afternoon. It was also recently discovered that the quote is the perfect answer to the all menacing question "Why are you here, [insert name]?" from Chris Hansen, thus rendering his pedo-bashing powers useless and allowing the rape of loli and shota by sick fucks all across the world. Nice going, Heath!


Why So Exploitable?

The day the Joker became a meme.

It started around July 18th, 2008 when the movie came out and everyone was like,"OMG THAT WUZ TEH GREATEST MOVIE EVAR!!!1 WHY DID HEATH HAVE 2 DIE??!!!11!!1" which /b/tards thought was absolutely great too and yet again became fanboys of this movie. The post constantly changes, from a variety of pics of the Joker doing lulzy things or showing you a card that is exploitable.

  • But for real, people should only say that to emos

The Joker Disease

Final stages of the disease.

Fanbois all across America have developed The Joker Disease from watching The Dark Knight. The symptoms can include any of the following:

The Fresh Prince of Gotham

I'm so fucking delicious

Now, this is a story all about how My life got flipped-turned upside down And I liked to take a minute Just sit there son I'll tell you how I became the menacing Joker of Gotham.

Well no idea where I was born or raised An Asylum was where I spent most of my days Spazzin' Out, Schitzin, Laughin' all cool And all digging my way out with a stolen tool When a couple of guards caught me out of my bed I stabbed them in the face and now they're kinda dead Broke out of Arkham and Gotham's where I went, They found nothing in my pockets except knives and lint,

Evening Commissioner

I just wanna be the guy who's fun and feared, And if I may say, I really dig the beard Everyone points and call me delirious, But I just laugh and ask, "Why so serious?"

Well I broke out some cell-mates, and set them free And told them they were all just freaks like me If they wanna destroy Gotham, there's just one plan, It's obvious the only way is: kill the batman

I destroyed half of Gotham by two or three, And I yelled to the batman, "Come on, hit me" Looked at Gotham, as it all laid in waste, Come on, batman, Lets put a smile on that face.

The Pencil Trick scandal

The infamous Disappearing Pencil trick scene that caused over a million YouTubers major butthurt when trying to find it there.

Before the film came out, many JewTubers found out about a scene in The Dark Knight where the Joker shows a "magic trick" and says he can make a pencil "disappear", in which he grabs a charging black person by the head and bashes his head straight into it. Of course the YouTube community thought this was pretty hilarious because nobody likes niggers so many sought out to find the lulzy scene. Others thought this would be the perfect time to get a bunch of views for their video and did some lulzy things to the Jew.

The Real Deal

Y'wanna know how I got these scars?
My father was a drinker and a fiend.
One night, he goes off crazier than usual.
Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself.
He doesn't like that.
Not one bit.
So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it.
He turns to me and he says, "Why So Serious? son"
He comes at me with the knife, "Why So Serious!? son"
Sticks the blade in my mouth, "Let's put a smile on that face!"
And, Y SO SRS???

So in conclusion...
