We Die Like Men refers to the phrase "No Airbag, We Die Like Men," which has grown into a snowclone popular on Tumblr in which "airbags" and "die" are replaced in jokes.


The phrase "No Airbags, We Die Like Real Men" has appeared on the internet before in some viral images of bumper stickers.[4] However, it was not until August 2016 that the phrase sparked a snowclone. On August 7th, 2016, an image of a car with a bumper sticker that reads "No Airbag, We Die Like Men" was posted to Imgur.[3] On August 10th, 2016, Tumblr user dreamjerky[1] posted the image, shown below, in a post that has gained over 122,000 notes as of December 16th, 2016.

No Airbag We die Like Men


In the coming months, the image inspired text posts that turned "No Airbag, We die Like Men" into a snowclone in which "airbag" and "die" are replaced. One of the more popular examples was posted by grec1a[2] on November 20th, 2016, that read "No proofreading, we die like men" and amassed over 76,000 notes. A Tumblr account devoted to reposting examples of the snowclone, wedielikemensuggestions,[5] appeared on August 14th, 2016.
