Meta: Has MGoBlog started to invade your IRL thoughts?

Submitted by Adamantium on August 4th, 2010 at 7:44 PM

I was lazing around and playing some NCAA 11 the other day when my roommate popped into the living room to watch while I did my offseason recruiting. As I casually discussed my recruiting strategy to him (and drooled over a small, speedy back whose tendency was nevertheless labeled as "Power"), I seized every chance I had to take away recruiting points from my competitors. And in my rambling explanation of why this was a good strategy, without even thinking about it, this came out of my mouth: "Yeah, I've got way better ratings than all of these schools, so I'm just gonna keep neg-banging them until I get into his top 3."

Ten minutes later, said roommate dropped the term "neg-bang" in a phone conversation with his mother. She was apparently confused by the term, and assumed it was some kind of Gen-Y vulgarity, which is fair because it DOES sound like something you shouldn't say to your mother. He tried to explain that it was simply some kind of internet message board inside joke between me and him, but I think she got lost at "internet."

It has begun. Now it's going to be difficult for me to not think of the term "neg-bang" any time anyone criticizes anything, ever. "Glenn Beck is neg-banging Obama again," or "Movie critics sure neg-banged the crap outta that M. Night Shyamalan movie," or "All my friends neg-bang White Castle, but I find their tiny burgers delicious."

So have any MGoBlog-isms worked their way into your everyday vernacular yet?

The worst part is that all of my friends just tune me out because most of my sentences start with, "So I was reading MGoBlog today..."

You don't have to be a member of the MGoBlog community to understand the meaning of 100% Pure Columbian Awesome without knowing its origin.  Therefore, I am fairly confident that it's a legit phrase to drop in a non-MGoBlog setting.  Neg-bang on the other hand... ehh... not so much.

I can't make it through the work day without uttering the words, "We have ___ days and wake up!"

Having to explain my renewed love of the Muppets at my age is awkward to say the least.

The one saying I throw around alot is "bursting into a shower of lipids."  I know, I know... you are probably wondering how one uses that as a part of your active vocabulary, but somehow I manage to.

Little things on here crack me up so much that I laugh out loud really hard and my girlfriend wonders what the heck I'm reading.  I try to explain it to her but realize it is futile becuase we are a unique community around here.

I get asked at least once a day what's going on with Michigan football. Even if MGoBlog isn't on my screen. BTW, I never change my screen when someone walks in or by my cube. Fuck 'Em.

I carry around a scaled down and stapled together copy of "The Decimated Defense" to shut people up whenever they start badmouthing the team.

I guess sometimes I say "No sugarcoat," but otherwise most of my references to things from MGoBlog are said to other people who read the site, if not the forums.

From last year and for now on any Greg(s) I've came into contact with has been referred to as GERG. People just look at me weird like they herd me wrong. Just like buckets will always be referred to as buskits.
