Another day, another meme.
Imgurians have lately loved turning one man’s grim fate into a premise for all kinds of jokes. The formula stems from this two-panel comic of a man obviously in need of some help—he’s floating in the sea—being spotted by a rescue helicopter, only for the pilot to fly away.
The original comic looks to have a third panel where the pilot says “What a friendly chap.” But Imgurians don’t need that final component of the story to wreak their meme havoc.
Generally, the idea is that the guy in the water says something that the pilot doesn’t exactly love. Whether it’s because he makes a mom joke or supports Trump, the swimmer’s doom is sealed.
Dude deserves to be abandoned if he’s going to be such an asshole, right? Imgurian AvengerPilot has put together a gallery of some popular remixes for your viewing pleasure.
Of course, the spin-offs have taken some other hilarious creative liberties with the meme.
