This joke originated with episode 217 animated sitcom South Park, titled "Gnomes". In this episode, the Underpants Gnomes are stealing everyone's underwear. When the main characters ask why the Gnomes are stealing everyone's underwear they show a chart:

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3
Collect
underpants
? Profit
None of the gnomes were aware of what the middle step was, though they each assumed that one of the other gnomes did.

Memes

The quote was originally a large single question mark. In the process of becoming a meme on 4chan and many other boards, it had multiple question marks added to it to compensate for the lack of font size control:

  1. Do something
  2. ???????
  3. PROFIT
