In the beginning, there was this image macro of the spy from Team Fortress 2.


Anonymous saw it, and knew that it was lulz. But like Paradise without Eve, there was something missing. So Anonymous (RENRGY) /b/-gat the MSPaints.


Anonymous saw it, lol'd some more, but it was still not epic. So they added some Tom Green, but that only plateaued it. Then Anonymous thought "hey, how about I make an official holiday for it?" And, like Christmas, it was a huge success. Except the holiday existed before the original. And lo, thus Anonymous realized they had divided by zero, and the universe began.

June 5th: Official Gentlemen Day

Better than cigarettes

On June 5th, much lulz was had on /b/. This day will mark history as the beginning of GENTLEMEN Day. Every month on the 5th we will have a remembrance Gentlemen thread.

The now-infamous calendar.

Notable posts

The thread never found its way to 4chanarchive, as 4chanarchive was partaking in the holiday of Gentlemen Day. However, it was still a solid round of chemo and managed to distract the participants from the horrible state of /b/ for a few hours.

Important subjects discussed in the thread included:

  1. The formation of an epic holiday.
  2. The plans of having the fifth of each month to celebrate "Holiday Gentlemen" in honor of the thread that was inevitably going to die.
  3. A gentlemen promise to never post the epic "Holiday Gentlemen" image on any other day except for the fifth of each month.
  4. The official Gentlemen Day holiday is on June 5th.
