Wojak[spelled voyack], also known as Feels Guy is a Microsoft Paint™ drawing that portrays a bald man with a sad or neutral expression, the original Soyjak face was based on Wojack. The original Wojak lacks facial hair unlike Soyjak.
Wojak was originally used to express emotions and feelings, but as the years went by it lost its original meaning.
History[edit | edit source]
The exact origin of Wojak is unknown (albeit it might've come from vichan, an old Polish IB), but it became popular around 2010 in Krautchan. In 2011, it started to spread to other imageboards. The name "Wojak" itself comes from the name of an eccentric Polish poster on Krautchan's /int/ board, who'd originally posted the image there.
