I'm feeling holly and jolly now that my Exams are out of the way and Christmas is a-comin', so I was thinking of working on a sort-of-holiday-themed Meme page. Here's what I have so far:
"You Sit On A Throne Of Lies" is statement by Will Ferrell in the 2003 film Elf. The quote is commonly used to satirize statements that are contradictory or clearly dishonest.
The quote originally comes from a scene in which Buddy (Will Ferrell's character) encounters a mall Santa. However, Buddy had been expecting the actual Santa Claus and was eagerly anticipating his arrival, leaving the North Pole denizen disillusioned at the mall Santa. Buddy then whispers insults at the man indicating his disgust at the "impostor", including "You sit on a throne of lies!"
The quote gained popularity on humor website YTMND when user Cryokenetic uploaded a site that contained a picture of Buddy paired up the audio from the scene and matching text. The site received over 3,000 votes and maintains an average of 3.63/5. The sound file used on the website was also used on over 30 similar YTMND sites, and an alternate sound file was used on several other YTMND sites.
