Sweet Jesus Face
Sweet Jesus Face / Sweet Jesus Have Mercy is a rage comic face. The character is used to express overwhelming desire or enjoyment. It is very close to the Me Gusta meme. The meme was created in 2008.
Sweet Jesus Face originally appeared Nobody is Right. He featured a grin and his eyes were looking in the right direction. It was shared on deviantArt on September 16th, 2008 by 3-Angled-Blue.
The user Strongside of Facepunch used Sweet Jesus Face in the comic Troll Bait and uploaded on March 5, 2009.
Reddit user Volco posted the first current version of Sweet Jesus face on February 5th, 2011. The current version features the grin flipped upside down and the left eye was moved to the far left.
The first post was a multi-pane rage comic about the feeling of being extremely hungry and finally receiving pizza.
Sweet Jesus Face vs Me Gusta
Because Me Gusta and Sweet Jesus Face both signify pleasure, it has stirred up debates on when to use them. It is suggested that Me Gusta should be reserved for enjoyment in something perverted or strange, while Sweet Jesus should be used for a general sense of intense pleasure.
