About

Am I The Only One Around Here (also known as "Angry Walter") is an advice animal image macro series featuring a screenshot of the character Walter Sobchak (played by John Goodman) drawing a gun in the 1998 comedy film The Big Lebowski. The captions often convey the feeling that the poster is alone in holding an unpopular opinion.

Origin

The original image was captured from a scene in the 1998 Coen Brothers comedy film The Big Lebowski in which the character Walter Sobchak becomes frustrated by another character stepping over the line while bowling. After expressing his frustration to his teammates, he draws a hand gun and asks "Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules?" (shown at :57 below).

The first image macro using the quote was posted by Redditor BFM11 to the /r/AdviceAnimals<1> subreddit titled "Angry Walter" on March 24th, 2012. The caption expressed the poster"s frustration with the misuse of the word "literally" and used a screen capture from a different scene in the movie.
