Is this a Pigeon?
Is this a Pigeon? history (read more...)
“Is this a pigeon?”, a single-panel exploitable meme, comes from a frame taken from the 1991 Japanese anime show ‘Brave Fighter of Sun Fighbird’. The image shows a humanlike android misidentifying a butterfly as a pigeon. Although visually passable, the android gives away his faults by trying and failing to pass as a human through this and a subsequent misidentification. The meme is used to either point out someone’s misconception about something, or depict someone who is very much out of touch with reality.
The original post of this frame, made on Tumblr in December 2011, misrepresented it as a translation or transcription fail. The original Japanese line is, in fact, correctly translated. However, although this image became famous for the humor value of such a mistranslation, it wasn’t until 2018 that it was developed into a reaction meme format of its own, becoming a popular, long-lived meme. The “Is this a pigeon?” meme is also (sometimes erroneously) referred to as: Is this a… meme, Anime nerd pigeon meme, Glasses guy pigeon meme, and anime guy with butterfly.
