"Everything starts in the chans." And so it is with "Forever Alone." This character began as a spinoff of the Rage Guy comics and quickly spread to a variety of different formats including the traditional 4 pane comic as well as verticals and even the "Advice-Animal style" image macro.
This meme was brought to life with the efforts of Reddit and 4chan. They coordinated an "involuntary flash mob" where-in single New York guys were recruited via OK Cupid and invited to the same place and time to meet a date. Hilarity ensued as scores of single men appeared with no women in site.
Definitely mean, but funny.
