It was :awesome: on the Something Awful forums, I believe.
It was called the "awesome face" for some reason. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/awesome-face-epic-…
Ah yes, I believe you are referring to the “awesome face” emoji, otherwise known as the elusive “Epic Smiley”, a forum dwelling icon popularized by the likes of SomethingAwful and other such pre-reddit image/discussion boards.
Hey, SomethingAwful forums still exist! Despite Lowtax's increasing medical debts, somehow.
Awesome face is still awesome never die
A guy I knew defined Awesomeface as "I am so disdainful right now that it is like a kind of ecstasy."
"Awesome face", apparently.
It's an older meme sir, but it checks out.
It's awesome face! With the ???? emoji!
I love this one. The last panel just perfectly conveys a particular character-level personality type and meta-level authorial take on said personality type and it makes me smile fractally
Seems no one remembers what it was called…
