Internet culture comprehension failure

Image macros in general I (kind of) get. Cat macros I get, 'cos, cats, yay.

But this whole "motivational poster" subgenre (of which my shiny new icon courtesy of pinkishmew is an example) baffles me, even while I find them highly amusing. Where did it get started? I have never seen an RL "motivational poster" in this mould. Is that because I look in the wrong places?

And is there a roflbot equivalent for making them, where you upload a picture and it whacks a black border round it and puts text of the appropriate font underneath?
