Twitter user PizzaxSlutx posted the first tweet that contained the meme format, in 2011, with limited reactions and popularity.
In later years, the sir this is an Arby’s format would appear more and more frequently in tweets.
Following 2015, the “sir this is a Wendy’s” edition of the meme format had appeared on Twitter and would later be seen on sites like Facebook, Instagram as well as 9GAG.
It appeared on Reddit threads following 2018 and was first defined on Urban Dictionary in 2020.
