@detriment34, I'm gonna upvote just for the time and effort.

@detriment34, "I'm not even mad, that's amazing!"
Seriously I have no clue what loss is.
@Yuskue Urameshi, PewDiePie made a video on it a few months back which helps sum it up neatly. To be honest though, there isn't much to actually get. There's not much to it.

@Aron G, ya did good kid. Your day will come
I found it.
In the mid-2000s, during the renaissance of internet webcomics on video games, one in particular, Ctrl+Alt+Del, skyrocketed to popularity. The comic embodied some of the cringiest stereotypes of the genre from the decade; Ethan, the main character and a video game-obsessed twenty-something with a passion for video games and "nerd culture," exhibits hallmark behaviors of the childish and snobbish comic and video game nerd archetype, including many that would be characterized as misogynistic nowadays, yet somehow has a friend who put up with his nonsense and a beautiful girlfriend who takes care of him. Talk about Marty Stu syndrome
On June 2nd 2008, Buckley ran a four-pane comic strip titled "Loss." In it, Ethan rushes to a hospital and discovers that his girlfriend, Lilah, has had a miscarriage. Thus was born one of the most iconic imageries in internet meme history.
@Yuskue Urameshi, but how is it supposed to be funny
@thebasicbrick, I couldn't tell ya, I had to google it to find out what it was.
@thebasicbrick, It became funny because the approach to serious story writing that Buckley took was so bad (you know, introducing the very serious subject of miscarriage into a comic series established as a comedy) that the comic became ridiculed and parodied to no end, because parodies of the comic and even the original with the frames out of order are more entertaining than Loss itself. Several other webcomic artists have taken a shot at Buckley, and Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation made an episode about webcomics that I believe is entirely targeted at him and Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
@thebasicbrick, dead babies jokes are always funny to a select group of people
I just have only seen the original once
Is it bad that this made me think of a parody of "What Is Love" based on loss?
Who else started frantically searching the image for a loss reference?
Is this loss?
