Here is the second matchup in the UC Eugene Sweet 16 Regional. Here is the bracket. Read the information behind the fold and then vote. This matchup is "Bombarding Okanes" v. "Replacing J with Y."
Okanes had a bye in the first round, but then took on one of the most beloved memes carp's nsfw photos. So, it has had a tougher road than most high seeds.
Replacing J with Y is a true Cinderella story here. First, it beat "I want [Poster] to do the DBD from now on." Then, it upset Big Lebowski. Given how many disturbing people disturbing like that disturbing movie, that was a huge, if non-disturbing shock!
I predict Okanes wins out here, BUT I've sat on J/Y before and we saw what happened there. So, don't count that one out yet!
Bombarding Okanes (2)
The thing about memes is that they are sort of gel together. Jon Okanes (or JOkanes or JO or YOkanes or YO) is a local beat writer. Great guy and great writer. Each week during the football season he always has his live CoCoTimes chats. I've always wondered how many non-CGBers attend these things. Because it has become sport to try to create the most ludicrous names and bombard him with the most lucrious questions. He even called somebody pretending to be me "something rhyming with the word runt" once.
Of course, these memes gel together and so it would make sense that Stegosaurus would come in to ask a question.
Not sure who first asked that Stego question, but soon everybody and their mom was rocking dino names. Like SydQuanatops. Or Longshore Rex. I think Rishi tried to start something about South Indian names like SydQuanatops. That toads bombed. Ha!
So, there you go. Now, it's your solemn duty to go bombard his chats with the craziest names. And if you are AaronRodgers4President, stop asking so many serious questions. AH! Although Okanes actually let my AaronRodgers4Pope and AaronRodgers4GrandImperialWizard questions in, so its OK I guess.
Replacing a J with a Y (11) via Ragnarok
Sometimes, the stupidest memes prove to be the stickiest. The substitution of 'Y's for 'J's is a pretty stupid meme, but it's proven to be quite resilient. It's kind of like pig latin, except amerlay and umberday.
As with most of the stupid memes on this site, it should come as no surprise that TwistNHook, Maharg, Rishi, and JShufelt were intimately involved with its origin. Here's how it all went down:
Our story begins last fall, as the relationship between CGB and ATQ grew 'more interesting'. CGB posters began frequenting ATQ, and vice versa. TwistNHook, in our Q+A with ATQ before the Oregon game, noted an interesting trend:
Which Quacker is that? JShufelt? JTLight? JTakimoto? Why are they always with the J? Who knows?
Then, a couple months later, this:
DBD 12.17.08 Let Me Be The First To Apologize
for ruining what I can only assume has become quite the early morning tradish for you. Maybe its when you first get up, maybe its when you first get to work, but you hurredly scurry to your computer looking ofrward to the wild hilarity of the DBD. "Oh, DBD, you always know how to start my day right with your esoteric pop culture references and inane similes." Those delightfully inane similies. And you cant forget the metaphors. seriously, though, you cant.
And you laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh. At least, until that JShufelt comes with his ever changing array of signatures and RUINS EVERYTHING. God, I hate that JShufelt. That JShufelt is the WORST.
In the thread itself, JShufelt responds!
JShufelt: I decided to come in here and be made fun of more!
That and to ruin you guys’ conversation, ala Jshufelt style.
carp: sigh…you’re just Shufelt when you post here…JShufelt when you post at AtQ along with your other j-friends.
JShufelt: I’m so confused! I don’t know who I am anymore!
Maharg: We don’t know who you are anymore either!
TwistNHook: He used to be so cool. What happened to him? He used to be so cool.
Maharg: It’s that damn J
TwistNHook: We should ust get rid of that letter altogether. Although that would cause the Draddy Mack to make me ump ump.
Rishi: I say we yust replace it with a y.
Maharg: I’m ok with that.
JShufelt: yazz flute!
TwistNHook: NAILED IT
Oh man, now that we've got an 'Anchorman' reference in here, this meme was *bound* to take off. Later in that same thread:
BearsNecessity: Randall Carroll wavering from his Trojan commitment
Looks like Florida is his top choice now, with Cal and Georgia in the running.
Maharg: I believe you mean his Troyan commitment
Rishi: I’m onto you, Maharg Backwards!
BearsNecessity: Rammer Yammer BANHAMMER
Maharg: Wait a minute… is Bill Cosby a Marshawnthusiast? yellowfever?
Rishi: Yahvid Best
JShufelt: Yeramia Yohnson
Spazzy Mcgee: Yaharg
TwistNHook: Well, that yust makes no sense.
Spazzy Mcgee: It makes nosense
turkey: QB competition for the Nut Bowl
There might be more Nate time
Rishi: If Yokanes said it, it must be true!
...and that's how it happened. See, I told you it was stupid!
