This, dare I say, art can feel acquainted — it functions as a type of Ur-meme, a predecessor to recently well-known joke constructions prefer “Get you a male who have the right to do both.” Somewhere along the way, the expression was transmuted to “i deserve to be your angle … or yuor devil.” KYM points to a renowned tweet featuring images of YouTuber Egoraptor as the culprit.

The thing I can not shake is an odd, unprovable feeling that the “yuor devil” picture is older than 2013. It has a distinctly “MySpace edgelord” vibe come it, favor it’s the sort of photograph that would feel suitable to covering in Blingees and embed right over your top 8. Yet I could not find any kind of mention of it past three year ago. Odd.
