Now kiss refers to a line from a popular webcomic, where a stick figure is pushing the heads of two other characters towards each other, while displaying the face known from Rage Comics.
The MS Paint webcomic where the “Now Kiss” panel was first drawn, was shared on FunnyJunk by KingGawjuss, with the title Principal Creepy on February 16th, 2010.
Rage Comics quickly adopted the face of the principal, where he became known as Fap Guy.
“Now Kiss” started appearing as a reaction image, along with images of attractive women as well as fanart featuring fictional characters in June 2011.
The meme was frequent in the early 2010’s on sites like Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr, as well as 9GAG, FunnyJunk and me.me, although its popularity decreased significantly since the dusk of Rage Comics.
