Timeline of Internet Memes:
Your favorites? Did they miss any?

I sometimes like to imitate Chocolate Rain guy when I'm bored in traffic. It's more fun than radio.
Who doesn't eh? I know I do. I also do the Darth Vader version, complete with angry fist. I also like the "you make me touch your hands for stupid reasons" break up letter as read on YTMND. Is that on there? Can't tell.
Ah, the innocent bygone days of the Hampsterdance. I had that song stuck in my head for months.
They missed SaveKaryn.com--she was the first famous internet panhandler, for lack of a better word, back in summer 2002. She was $20K in debt and the internets bailed her out by donations. Lots of people tried to get in on the game after that! What was everyone's first meme that they encountered? I just did a week by week search and the "Spirit of Christmas" is mine, apparently! (I'd heard of the coffeepot webcam, but had never seen it, so it doesn't count.)
I only know a handful of these. I'm not ashamed of that fact.
There's a Vader version? *checks* Oh my. HOW IS BABBY FORMED never fails to delight.
Also, a shocking number of these things aren't really memes, to me. Firefox download day?
If I am not mistaken, I have seen exactly two of those. I really liked the Matrix Ping Pong. That was very inventive. I also have seen that video for the "OK, Let's Go" song. I had no idea that was an internet meme.
I spent many happy hours with both the "Ate My Balls" meme and of course "All Your Base Are Belong To Us." And I'm having a hard time navigating that timeline. Which is usual, for me.
Click the "list" link. Much less painful.
No love for
Hans Holbein's Gay Tea Time Gala?
Nor Mister Whiskers, it seems.
Well, I want to have tea with Hans Holbein. I bet it would be the gheyest tea in all the land.
Tourist Guy Sep
Now that's odd.
