I believe the idea behind Reptar being the “mascot” of rage quitting is because R = Rage and R = Reptar, however this does not follow any of the other advice dog spin offs. Courage wolf, Socially Awkward Penguin, Success Kid, Technology impaired Duck…you get the idea. Besides, the Rage Quit Reptars…aren’t very funny in my opinion.
The reason this is in deadpool is because, as Chris Menning said a year ago:
“This is getting ridiculous. People make catch videos using sound bytes from the game all the time.
But there’s no common theme that links the videos aside from the fact that they all use the same sample. It hasn’t broken out from its original context and it hasn’t taken on any new meaning.”
Basically, unlike “Do a Barrel Roll” or “All your base are belong to us”, “Need a dispenser here” hasn’t broken out of it’s cliche, people who play video games, and into the mainstream. “Need a dispenser here” is more akin to the other deadpool article “AC-130 Above”. It really looks like a Forced Meme with random Image Macros made to try to give it validity.
This is more of a sub-meme of Lame Pun Coon.
+1 to deadpool. No meme here, move along folks.
I would say it’s a sub or related meme to Trollface/Coolface/Problem?, Rage Guy, or Troll Physics/Science. It should be confirmed, but only as either a Sub or Related meme
Given the fact that this image macro only started trending last week, we need to give it a little more time. Also, it should be listed as a related or sub-meme of Hipster Kitty should we decide to confirm its’ memetic status.
