Whenever there is a post on Reddit asking for advice on how to break up with a significant other, there are often several replies featuring a copypasta advising the OP to “delete facebook, hit the gym and lawyer up.” Does anyone know how this got started?

I heart Richard Dawkins. :D

Made an entry here. Feel free to request editorship and add more info!
Several blogs are reporting that this guy Omar Borkan Al Gala was one of the three Emirati men deported from Saudi Arabia for being “too handsome.” His photo was posted on Reddit yesterday and hit the front page. Neetzan Zimmerman of Gawker seems to be skeptical that it was actually him and Omar has yet to confirm or deny it. Redditor thejoyoflearning submitted an image macro using a photo of Omar to /r/AdviceAnimals, referring to him as “Too Handsome Habibi.” Other Redditors seem to be calling him...
LOL I don’t hate documenting advice animal memes at all. Researching and documenting all kinds of entries can be fun. My point was that I don’t think they are all funny or clever just because I make an entry about it. It means the meme popped up on our radar big enough for us to cover it.
Different angle: First Reddit post Looks like some people are trolling already too (link)
We were discussing other song memes that we haven’t yet covered on the site and we all agreed that both Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” were two hits that were notable enough to deserve entries. Bohemian Rhapsody:Huge rage comicReddit search resultsYouTube search results Ignition (Remix):Petition to change national anthem to Ignition RemixJoseph Gordon Levitt coverYouTube search results We started brainstorming other classic songs that have been heavily parodied and came up...
This Arnold Schwarzenegger handshake scene from Predator seems to have quite a few parodies and remixes. Anyone have an idea on where this started originally? Feel free to start up an entry!

The earliest one of these I remember seeing was this wildfires image:
 Guy is definitely referencing marijuana. The numbers 1-10 are a scoring system to rate how stoned someone is in the marijuana subreddit /r/trees.
There have been pictures of a cat named Sam with black markings on his head that look like eyebrows circulating online recently. Anyone have any info on this cat or places his pictures have been posted? I found several Reddit threads: Jan 28: /r/pics Jan 30: /r/aww Jan 31: /r/aww
The line “popped a molly, I’m sweatin” from the song “All Gold Everything” by Trinidad James seems to have taken off as a catchphrase these days. There are quite a few image macros going around: Anyone have a clue on where these first started popping up, or how the song started getting big?
Some of the GIFs seem to have come from the infomercial fails in the /r/wheredidthesodago subreddit.
We’ve noticed quite a few of these GoPro perspective videos going around for awhile now ever since the Hula Cam video from Burning Man went big in September: Now we’ve seen GoPros attached to animals, swords, etc. If you know of any other significant GoPro videos or have info about how they spread online chime in on this thread!
While the term “circlejerk” has roots outside of the Internet, it has taken a somewhat different meaning online in recent years. Lately it seems to be used as a pejorative referring to cliche or stereotypical beliefs and attitudes within a subculture. I suspect this has a lot to do with the popularity of Reddit’s /r/circlejerk subreddit, and the many other circlejerk-style subreddits that have come after. Does anyone know if this was used on other sites before Reddit in this context?
I seem to recall seeing this Macklemore “Thrift Shop” video initially getting big on Reddit a couple of months ago. It’s currently at over 55 million views. Last week I saw a parody called “Pot Shop” and yesterday we posted the Lindsey Stirling version. I did a quick YouTube search and it looks like there are quite a few other parody versions as well. Anyone know more about this?
@SesuiAR: I’ve seen those copypastas as well. Do you know how they got started? @RandomMan: great call on Ken-Sama. Do you think there is enough info out there to get an entry going?
I noticed we do not have an entry for this old copypasta: hi every1 im new!!!!!!! holds up spork my name is katy but u can call me t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m!!!!!!!! lol…as u can see im very random!!!! thats why i came here, 2 meetrandom ppl like me _… im 13 years old (im mature 4 my age tho!!) i like 2 watch invader zim w/ my girlfreind (im bi if u dont like it deal w/it) its our favorite tv show!!! bcuz its SOOOO random!!!! shes random 2 of course but i want 2 meet more random ppl =) like they say the more...

Anyone remember this Intervention episode with this woman Allison who was hooked on huffing computer duster? I remember when it first started making the rounds online, quite a few remixes began popping up, with some of them riffing on her “walking on sunshine” Does anyone have a clue on which websites the videos were initially passed around on and want to start up an entry?
