The earliest upload (still extant, anyway) seems to be by H. Michael Karshis in his Flickr stream: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hmk/4058142289. Perhaps he might remember whence it came? (Note also this early re-blog of the image in which HMK claims credit: https://web.archive.org/web/20120226173630/http://likedreamsville.blogspot.com/2009/11/learn-beat-speak.html).
