About[edit | edit source]

Everything Went Better Than Expected is a rage comic character wearing a smile that is typically used to show one’s pleasure with the overall outcome of the situation presented in the comic.

Origin[edit | edit source]

One of the earliest appearances of this character in rage comics was in a thread[1] posted on eBaum’s World's message board on November 27th, 2008. The comic illustrated a person’s anger towards American automotive companies GM, Chrysler and Ford during the 2008 automotive industry crisis[2], in which the main character's ill wish against "The Big Three" companies becomes a reality with the CNN's announcement of their bankruptcies.

Spread[edit | edit source]

The first thread to explore "Everything Went Better Than Expected" comics as its main subject topic was posted on the paintball enthusiast forum PbNation[3] on February 19th, 2009. In April, another thread was posted on the Mustang Forums[4], followed by two threads on the BodyBuilding.com forums in May[5] and June.[6]

In November 2009, the rage comic character was mentioned for the first time on Reddit with a self post[10] noting that the character is representative of all optimists.The following month, redditor JoshuaUNT posted an instance of the character that he had drawn (shown below, left) in response to spotting a car with a Rage Guy drawn on the back windshield (shown below, right).

In January 2010, a Facebook fan page[7] for the face was created, earning 44,175 likes as of September 2012. Additional comics have since appeared on Memebase,[12] Reddit[8] and occasionally on Tumblr[9], where the phrase “everything went better than expected” is also used as a tag on text or photo posts without the rage character.
