Stoner Stanley

About

[10] Guy (also known as “Really High Guy” and “Stoner Stanley”) is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photo of a young man who appears to be under the influence of marijuana. The captions typically portray stereotypical stoner behavior, similar to Stoner Dog, such as giving invalid answers to misunderstood questions and craving junk food.

Origin

On November 25th, 2011, Redditor randomdave posted a photo of a red-faced young man (below left) to the marijuana enthusiast r/trees subreddit titled “Being at a [10] is not always pretty.”[10] The same day, the picture was submitted by redditor Ahahaha__10 with the caption “Texts the person next to them / ‘I want hopsital’” (below right) in a post titled “The happened to a friend of mine on his first ever bong rip.”[1]
