About

My Last Brain Cell is a series of image macros that personify an overworked, threatened or exhausted brain cell for humorous effect.

Origin

The earliest known usage of a personified brain cell was featured on an episode of Family Guy, entitled "Wasted Talent," which first aired on July 25th, 2000.[2] In the episode, the main character, Peter, drinks so much alcohol that when the show shows the inside his brain, where one lonely brain cell remains. In a reference to The Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough at Last,” the brain cell decided to spend its time reading, only to break its glasses (shown below).



The earliest known example of someone personifying their brain cell in an image macro was posted by Twitter [1] user @Heart_break_kxd on May 25th, 2016. That day, they posted a still from the Family Guy episode with the caption "Me tonight: Drunk My last brain cell tonight: Where tf everybody at?" (shown below).
