"IT'S CALLED REACTION MEME, FAGGOT!1"

"Gaijin 4Koma" (Japanese, 外人四こま, "4-frame foreigners") aka "reaction guys" aka "that meme with the four guys, you know the one" is a classic 4chan meme appropriated from 2chan typically consisting of a montage of four panels. Two of these panels depict four guys reacting to shit.

Needless to say, 4chan's /b/tards saw this as a prime candidate for Photoshopping, and a meme was born.

Format

Though it can often be expanded to more than four panels, the standard format of the meme is:

Panel 1: Picture of Happy Negro, Rei, etc.
Panel 2: Bored reaction.
Panel 3: Picture of Cockmongler.
Panel 4: Cheering.

There is an alternative extension;

Panel 1: Picture of Happy Negro, Rei, etc.
Panel 2: Bored reaction.
Panel 3: Picture of Cockmongler.
Panel 4: Cheering.
Panel 5: Picture of any character.
Panel 6: Bored reaction, but character's face is shooped over each gaijin's face.

Another extension;

Panel 1: Picture of Happy Negro, Rei, etc.
Panel 2: Bored reaction.
Panel 3: Picture of Cockmongler.
Panel 4: Cheering.
Panel 5: Picture of any character, usually someone particularly awesome.
Panel 6: Cheering, with colors inverted, along with other suitable effects.

Controversy

Mentioning the meme on /b/ will invariably result in a long, hilarious and bitter-fought flame war about what its true name is.
