"Shut up and take my money!" is a catchphrase used to express enthusiastic approval toward a product or idea. It is often associated with an image macro featuring the character Fry from the animated television series Futurama.


On July 1st, 2010, the "Attack of the Killer App" episode aired during season six of the animated sitcom Futurama. In the episode, the company Mom Industries releases the eyePhone, a parody of the Apple iPhone. When the protagonist Fry attempts to purchase one at a store, he is warned by the cashier about reception and battery life issues to which he interrupts yelling "Shut up and take my money!" while waving several dollar bills (shown at :26 below):

The following day, the German tech blog Crackajack[4] published a post about the episode and included an image macro of Fry with the caption "Shut up and take my money!"

The phrase is often used on web forums and image boards to express a desire to obtain a certain product or invention, or to show approval for a proposed idea. On Reddit, it is used as the title for posts with pictures and videos of new technology and gadgets. On March 7th, 2011, Redditor calivessel submitted a photo of a credit card with the Fry image printed on top to the /r/pics[10] subreddit. The post managed to reach the front page and accumulated over 4,000 up votes prior to being archived.
