well, that just ruined it for me. i'm retiring folks. see ya around, internet.

NO. they should never, ever humanize or expand upon a meme.

Hearing the kid speak and seeing him without his make-up on completely kills the joke - it unravels the awesomeness of the original clip. It is undone.
Thus, I hereby proclaim the kid and his meme UNAWESOME and recommend it be stricken from the public zeitgeist.

(I'm one starring the news, not the clip btw)

You wrote an entire paragraph about a local news fluff piece destroying your precious memories or some shit.

5 stars for that.

theFlu
Talking exclusively about the kid was a means of examining how a meme is undone.
The paragraph was done as a sort of grim realization that the news is turning more and more to internet phenomenons (see MSN video news) to bolster their content, and in doing so, completely ass raping the "sanctity" of internet culture.


5 invisible stars for you not getting it / your cool hipster nonchalance

as if writing a whole paragraph is a big deal. given literacy today i guess the effort that goes into writing a paragraph is akin to the building the sistine chapel. i say we garrote all the hipsters and go back to the square-ass faggotry of articulating ourselves.

Adramelech
Yeah, seriously. Humanizing or providing context for something completely kills it.

Kojack13
The fact that you meant "painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel" but screwed up and said "building the Sistine Chapel" in a message about articulating ourselves is hilarious.

TinManic
because the sistine chapel grew out of the ground, right? weak.

Kojack13
I guess you're right. It's just as significant as man like Alfred Einstein.

Good job zombie kid.

Remember when StarWars kid got an ipod or something for getting on the internet ?

TinManic is dumb.

I'm not watching this. I want to remember this kid they way he was .. liking turtles. As a zombie.

I find this news report to be so bizarre and surreal. If you think about what it's actually about, it's like a slow hissing dream you might have after watching Robocop. It means nothing but is actually happening.

I agree with the NEVER EXPAND UPON A MEME sentiments, but this gets five from me because every time they replayed the I LIKE TURTLES sound bite I still couldn't help myself from loling in spite of the meme-killing humanization.
