Son, I am disappoint refers to a series of exploitable images and comics, whose panels have also been used frequently as a reaction image online.
The comics are comparable to the “what’s all this racket” comic series, with an uncomfortable conversation transpiring between a father and son, ending with the father expressing his disappointment.
Online, the sentence “I am disappoint” is a popular meme in itself, occurring in various contexts.
The “son, I am disappoint” comics were first posted to 4chan in 2008.
It quickly gained traction, spreading to websites such as bodybuilding.com etc.
The phrase itself also grew to be a popular meme online.
Over the years, the exploitable series had seen numerous variations, with alterations on what the son or father does, prior to the punchline “son, I am disappoint”.
The phrase would later be captioned on images, that looked similarly grim to the original father drawing, such as in the “what’s all this racket” meme.
