About[edit | edit source]
Okay (or “Okay Guy”) refers to four-pane cartoon strips depicting a stick figure saying “okay” in various circumstances where most Rage Comics characters would be inclined to disagree or react negatively. Popularized by 4chan imageboard, this spin-off series brings an interesting twist to the original Rageguy as an overly agreeable, self-deprecating guy. The opposite of him is Not Okay Guy.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Following the format of popular Rageguy comics, each four-paned strip usually consists of a short exchange between someone and the Okay Guy character, who always brings on the anti-climatic response “okay” with a really sad face.
Origin[edit | edit source]
The illustration is rumored to have originated on the imageboard 4chan, but no archived thread was found. The earliest known instance of the face was posted on the Russian internet humor website JoyReactor on June 4th, 2009.
