I catch myself trying to say "+1" to people, if that counts.
WAY OT: Everyday use of MGoBlog meme
I'll use negbang every once in a while, but that's not necessarily MGoBlog specific.
Isn't talking about MGoBlog the very definition of on-topic?
Sad Panda is probably ok to use in public, since it's from South Park and therefore has much greater exposure, but tacopants is much more obscure. Next time try using Henri, the otter of ennui. You're sure to alienate and bring much cajoling and shame upon yourself.
Whenever somebody insults me, I act out the various "Haters Gonna Hate" gifs I've seen on here.
The real question is whether you have a wife/gf or buddy to do one of the "Tater's Gon' Tate" ones right after you're finished.
With the news that Tate is dating Miss Michigan, I'm wholly unsure of what the phrase "Tater's gonna Tate" even means now.
Also, I'm not 100% on this, but I think that's his ex.
I knew I'd seen you around...
Also, one time at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, I blurted out, "I don't have enough points to start a new discussion, but I heard that my name is Magnus and I'm an alcoholic."
I'll interrupt an AA meeting with "Hey, offtopic, but has anyone heard anything about Bill coming to our meeting for a visit next week?"
I find myself using the Charts? Charts. thing more than I should. +1 gets me as well.
I use that at work a lot.
Which: duh has made it in.
Also, the gauntlet will always remain the gauntlet to me. I can't bring myself to call it a dong forrest.
I find myself using the (!) in emails every so often. Probably not specifically from mgoblog, but I associate it with Brian's writing. I've seen others that frequent the blog use it outside as well.
That's a DFWism. A great deal of Brian's style and writing quirks come from that guy. If you don't have the time/patience for Infinite Jest, I highly recommend Consider The Lobster, a book of essays.
I find myself saying "Hello: ____" whenever someone gets into a new relationship.
I also did this when my son was born in January.
I have a folder on my desktop called "Charts!" where I put downloaded and cropped charts and data from Bloomberg before it goes into presentations...
its Flamebait ! No one even has a clue when you drop that one out for consumption ....
Go Blue !
why do you put a space before your exclamation points?
he could fill the space in with an elipses or something...
I don't know if I picked this up from Brian or from some other source but I do frequent he HOWEVA (yes, even in verbal form).
I believe it's from Stephen A. Smith and the interwebs picked up on it, probably since he was yelling it at us even with the tv turned off.
I watched a live recruit commitment on my first date with a girl at Olive Garden. Went on MGoBlog for 2 seconds saw that Arnett was committing and clicked on the link and watched the thing through my phone. Disappointed he chose Tennessee and said a loud "way to choose an SEC team that can't win" and she looked at me and let me tell ya that was a fun night. ;-)
-1 for eating at Olive Garden.
I'm going to assume you took her to Applebee's for dessert.
I find myself using Angry [BLANK] Hating God pretty frequently.
Seriously asking. I've always thought it was the *geniuses* at Black Heart Gold Pants.
Like most deities, His origin is probably disputed. I know they have been dealing with Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God for several seasons, but I was under the impression it was an MGoThing.
Hell, they may all derive from Orson's Angry Old Testament God...
I'm a new poster but have been reading for quite some time, and yes, MGoBlog memes have infiltrated my life. My dad and several of my good friends are avid readers as well, and we all reference many of the memes in conversation. It has even hit the point where we discuss occurences on the board, like "did you see (insert user here) got neg-banged today?"
Watch the fake.
I have used many of those mentioned above, in addition I have used OMG! SHIRTLESS! to describe someone's unnecessarily shirtless facebook profile...
Much like the rest of you, I get crickets
I use the term "_'d" into Bolivian" frequently
The last time I came up to campus I kept moderating my friend's comments. I kept track mentally and was like, "Wow, Christine made three insightful remarks this weekend. Much cred to her". Stupid statements all got a YouSuck motion and a flamebait label, as well.
and we can't stop trolling each other IRL, either
questioning my voracity. I will have to make a point of remembering some of these, though!
I also have dropped a "+1" here and there, usually on facebook posts. The only other one I can recall using is "Nefarious Eduardo" from the recruiting board. Actually, I don't know that's I've actually used it--I just find it curiously hilarious and have made up my mind to use it whenever I get a chance. So, +1 to whoever came up with Nefarious Eduardo.
I also use the term Nefarious Eduardo whenever I can, and in various contexts. None of my friends know exactly what I mean by it, but I usually use it to describe someone who's being a buzzkill, party pooper, and just generally disappointing me.
For example, "Yeah, Dan had to leave early. He was acting like a real Nefarious Eduardo."
I know this example and the ways I generally use the term don't match up with the dictionary definition or recruiting board definition, but I just find it too funny of a phrase to let go by the wayside. It's also great because sometimes people act like they understand what I mean by it, as if it was a pop culture or historical reference.
How about NSFMF? I've used it and gotten funny looks.
I use (FWIW) and (NTTAWWT) a lot.
and i said "Not safe for Steven Kass' wife"
also, after a long, wandering and pointless meeting, i may have said "that would be telling."
I compulsively down-vote anyone I see wearing osu gear.
I've heard my girlfriend say "posbang" and "negbang" before. It was awesome.
When will we see a new user called "Justin's Better Half" or words to that effect? :p
Haha, she'll end up making one someday, hopefully. More so I can laugh at her for giving in to my addiction than for seeing her posted thoughts; I could just ask her in person if I was interested.
I'll say "I will eat my hat" and brian is the only person i've seen to use that phrase.
Also if I see Lloyd Brady walking around campus i'll look at the ground and chuckle to myself.
Much like schadenfreude, "eat my hat" is a phrase that has been around a lot longer than mgoblog, and even than the denizens therein.
I love this place
I think, "man, bet that guy could really push some donkeys around".
When talking with my friends, I refer to Brian casually (as I do with my real-life friends). For instance, I'll be talking with my roommate (who doesn't read the blog) and say something like "Brian said that the Yost renovation is almost done". Usually someone's reaction is "Who is Brian?", and I also kind of feel like a creeper by referring to someone who doesn't know I exist.
It's probably a good thing that you don't call anyone Tacopants on the girls' softball team...
prediction based on flimsy evidence ...
It makes me sick to see OSU gear. But, now I'm kind of excited to see it ... I can't wait to ask them how things are going in the shit pile to the South
send pictures of LOLCATS to people to express my level of happiness. I also tend to say "insert muppets" during conversation.
'100% Pure Columbian Awesome' has become my universal expression for complete and total approval of just about anything.
I actually used the word "ANGAR" in an office memo.
