Where does "This is why we can't have nice things" come from?

What's the origin of "This is why we can't have nice things!" I know it's used in Frisky Dingo, but is that where started? I've been seeing it a lot recently in the hipster doofus-verse.

I credit my mother, but I'm guessing that's not what you're looking for.

probably originated when someone negatively impacted the existence of aforementioned nice thing
