Origin of the emote
Pepe the Frog portrays a teenage character which was created in 2005, by artist Matt Furie for his comic series called “Boy’s Club”.
However, the character became famous in 2008, after the character was featured in the most recent volume as pulling his pants down, all the way to his ankles to pee.
This was taken out of context by users of the image board called 4chan, where it was featured on one of its sub boards called /b/ (random), with the caption “Feels Good Man”.
