The official death of the rage comic

Recently, Reddit sucked the last drop of funny out of rage comics. Rage comics are emoticon memes assembled into humorous stories. There was once a time when rage comics were original and made me laugh. Those days are dead.

This doesn't tell a story, doesn't make me laugh, and doesn't really do anything at all. The only person who laughed at this was stupidaccountname. EDIT: After reading this comic a second time, I loled at a joke by stupidaccountname. The absolutely easiest way to view a meme-free reddit is to kill yourself. That comment deserved much more karma.
Yes, this is really as bad as it seems. A middle aged woman telling a touchy-feely personal story and PROPOSING to her boyfriend. I wretched!
There is absolutely nothing funny about this comic whatsoever. It's merely a tale of butthurt accompanied with emoticons which were funny the first 10,000 times. Now they're not.
If you know anything about the history of rage comics, this is the one that will put you over the line. This is the one that made me post this story. One of the most famous faces in rage comics is "raisins" face. The face a person makes after biting into a cookie, thinking it's filled with chocolate chips, only to realize it is raisins. The maker of this rage comic didn't use the raisin face.
Here is the original. Notice how this rage comic is not littered with purposeless text, building an elaborate but unfunny story. The maker of this comic actually created their own face, capturing the shock of unexpected raisin cookies so perfectly that the image has been reused thousands of times by creators of piss-poor copycat rage comics.

With that, ladies and gentlemen, we must lay rage comics to rest in the graveyard of funny internet memes that have been thoroughly beaten to death. No, fuck that. They must be incinerated forever and stricken from archive.org. God help us.

  1. Unfortunately you saying it’s official doens’t make it so. Bad luck. It’s extremely flawed to take a small non-representative sample of rage comics, criticise them and then think that your criticism applied to ALL rage comics. Rage comics evolve, it’s what they do. Just because you don’t like one or two, or hell ALL of them mdoesn’t make them, bad or dead.

  2. Thank you, you are correct. God I hate these retards who can’t even devote a modicum of effort to making their own shitty mspaint faces.

    1. Just because you show 5 rage comics that were not that great dose not mean that all rage comics are like that there are very funny rage comics out there I do know that some pepole may not like them and that’s fine everyone has an opinion and you calling them retards is simply childish and rude you can make point with out resorting to insults!

  3. I’ve always hated rage comics. They are just not funny.
    And btw, what kind if idiot can’t tell the difference between a raisin and a chocolate chip? Idiots don’t deserve to eat if they don’t pay attention to what they’re eating.

    1. If you don’t like rage comics than don’t read them or even come on Reddit. Also its very easy to mistake raisans for chocolate chips.

  4. I think it’s messed up for you to critize rage comics off of such a small number. I’ve read soo many funny rage comics, and here you think 5-6 is enough to officially declare them dead. Just because It makes yo u feel better to have someone to look down at. People do that often, infact, making other people look worse to make themselves look better. I suggest u stop using reddit, because its full of a bunch of dumb hypocrites who crave attention

  5. Wow. What’s wrong with a middle aged woman making a harmless comment on how she went from unhappy to happy? On how a jerk sold some of his friends game chips for 60$? That’s seriously rude to say they “suck”. They can make rage comics about what they want.
