  • 12/10/15--02:26: Ew, I stepped in shit
  • About

    Ew, I stepped in shit is an exploitable image, used to convey disgust or hate to a specific type of image, person, etc. The image is usually used towards anime and waifus, because of the popular phrase “Your favourite animu/waifu is shit!”

    Origins

    The original comic was posted on the website lolnein, on the 3rd of June 2013, under the title of “Ew, shit” where a man accidentally walks onto poop and says “Ew, shit” only to be responded to by “Ew, Human”.


    A few years later on the 29th of June 2015 another comic was made with the same premise, but it expanded on the words “Ew, Shit” and changed the last panel to be “Your Opinion”. The Original Comic was titled “Ew, I stepped in Shit”, and that lit the fuse for many other variations to be made.

    About

    The Gadsden Flag is an iconic historical American flag that consists of a drawing of a coiled rattlesnake on a patch of grass with the phrase “DON’T TREAD ON ME” displayed below, all on a yellow background. Originally introduced during the American Revolution, the flag has since become associated with libertarianism and the Tea Party movement in the 21st century.

    Origin

    The design originated in 1775 as one of the flags used by the American navy during its revolutionary war against the British Empire. The use of the snake as a symbol and metaphor was already popular at the time; an early example was a political cartoon, “Join, or Die”,[2] created in the 1750s by Benjamin Franklin during the Seven Years’ War (shown below). The cartoon featured the various states of the American colonies represented by the dismembered sections of a snake.



    The original design was likely first used by the Marines of the newly formed American navy, though the precise origin is unknown.[1] Colonel Christopher Gadsden, after whom the flag is named, saw the design and was so impressed by it that he ordered an official flag to be created with it.[3]



    Spread

    Due to its historical significance as one of the first flags of the United States, the Gadsden flag has long been used as a symbol of American patriotism by members of the military service, and more recently, by the supporters of the U.S. national soccer teams including Sam’s Army and The American Outlaws since the late 1980s. However, the flag saw its most notable modern resurgence in 2009, when it became unofficially adopted as a symbol of the American Tea Party movement. As a result of its prominent display during Tea Party rallies and protests, both the design of the Gadsden flag and the phrase “Don’t Tread on Me” became a popular subject of parodies and mockeries online.

  • Under Construction


    Kevin Strahle (known under the pseudonym skippy62able and L.A. Beast) is a professional competitive eater, Vlogger and YouTuber. He is most widely known for his insane eating challenges, and spearheading the “Bring Back Crystal Pepsi” movement.

    Childhood/Early Life

    Kevin was born on January 6, 1984 in Ridgewood, New Jersey. During his childhood, he developed a love for eating, and would regularly accept money from classmates in order to complete food eating challenges. After graduating, Kevin was accepted into the Fordham Rams of Fordham University, New York. In 2008, Kevin moved to Los Angeles, California, to stock shelves for PepsiCo. Two years of service, Kevin quit after an apparent lack of persistence as a salesman.

    Internet History

    In 2010, Kevin started to make videos while in California. In the first video he was featured in, “Guy Smashes Gallon Milk Challenge in 20 Min,” received positive reactions to viewers. Confident, Kevin decided to start his own food-eating challenge channel, going under the username “skippy62able.” On August 26, 2010, Kevin posted his first video, “Fatburger XXXXXL King Challenge- Over 3 pounds of burger domination.”

    After completing the Fatburger XXXXXL King Challenge, Kevin’s roommate called him “A Beast” for eating the food so quickly. This led to Kevin giving himself the official nickname of “The L.A. Beast.”

    Bring Back Crystal Pepsi Campaign

    in 2013, L.A. Beast released a video of him consuming (then vomiting) a 20 year old bottle of Crystal Pepsi, a caffeine-free beverage that was only sold from 1992 to 1994. The video instantly went viral, and has more than 12,000,000 views as of 2015.

    Following the sudden burst of popularity, Beast occasionally made food challenges involving unopened bottles of Crystal Pepsi.



    In April 2015, Beast released “Pepsi Needs To Bring Back Crystal Pepsi,” starting the “Bring Back Crystal Pepsi” Movement, a campaign dedicated at bringing back the clear cola. This led to a petition on Change.org, which succeeded with 38,778 signatures by the end of 2015.

    On December 8, 2015, PepsiCo. announced that Crystal Pepsi would be re-released as a limited run of 13,000 six-packs, and is scheduled for a consumer re-release in 2016. The following day, a representative arrived at L.A. Beast’s home, and delivered two six-packs of Crystal Pepsi, marking the success of the Crystal Pepsi movement.

  • 12/15/15--14:23: Brock Lesnar
  • (everything should be done now, just let me know if there’s anything you think could be added or changed)

    About


    Brock Lesnar is an American Professional Wrestler currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment. While most known for his time in WWE, he also wrestled when he was at the University of Minnesota, and later competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and attempted to play football in the National Football League. His most notable accomplishments include being a 4-timr WWE Champion, winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship and a Division I Heavyweight Wrestling Championship, and ending the Wrestlemania undefeated streak of The Undertaker.

    History

    First WWE run – “The Next Big Thing”


    Brock Lesnar first made his mark on WWE in 2002, winning the King of the Ring tournament and then defeating The Rock to win the WWE Championship (at the time known as the Undisputed Championship) within 6 months of his debut. Alongside his manager Paul Heyman, he continued to defend the championship for months until he lost the title (thanks to Heyman betraying him) to The Big Show. Lesnar recovered and won the 2003 Royal Rumble match, securing a title shot at Wrestlemania 19 against the champion Kurt Angle.



    The most notable moment of Lesnar’s title match was his attempt at a Shooting Star Press (see the above gif) off the top rope, an aerial move usually done only by much smaller wrestlers. Brock had landed the move many times while training in developmental, but when he attempted the move against Angle at Wrestlemania he botched the move and landed awkwardly on his head and neck. Despite the impact causing him a concussion, he and Angle finished the match and Lesnar won the WWE Championship for the second time in his career.

    The rest of Lesnar’s initial run with WWE consisted of various rivalries, including notable ones against The Undertaker, Vince McMahon and a young up-and-coming star named John Cena. Knowing that he was leaving the WWE after Wrestlemania 20 to attempt to play in the NFL, his final match was at the event against Goldberg, which was considered a disappointment and one of the worst matches of either one’s career.

    NFL and UFC careers – “Future Endeavors”


    After leaving WWE, Brock Lesnar attended the 2004 NFL Combine and then tried out for his hometown team, the Minnesota Vikings. He had a strong showing at training camp and made the practice squad, but was the last player cut from the roster before it was finalized. Having not made the team, Lesnar declined an offer to play football in Europe and instead returned to the world of Fighting.



    After a short stint back in wrestling, which culminated with Lesnar winning the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in Japan, Lesnar began training for Mixed Martial Arts and eventually signed to UFC. He lost his debut fight to Frank Mir, but afterwards went on a winning streak that included defeating future UFC hall-of-famer Randy Couture for the UFC Heavyweight Championship and then defeating Frank Mir in a rematch to retain it.


    Lesnar’s title reign and UFC career were cut short by him suffering from an intestinal disorder known as diverticulitis, which required surgery to fix and sapped him of some of his strength over the next couple years. He was able to retain against Shane Carwin by submission, but lost the title to Cain Velasquez. Later, a failed comeback attempt led to him getting beat down by Alistair Overeem and Lesnar announcing his retirement from UFC. Though he is not as well-known or as memetic for his NFL and UFC days as he is in WWE, these are still important and very proud moments in Lesnar’s storied athletic career.

    Second WWE run – “The Conquerer”


    Brock Lesnar made his surprise return to WWE in 2012, attacking John Cena the night after Wrestlemania 28. After a match with Cena, Lesnar re-united with his long-time manager Paul Heyman and entered feuds against Triple H and CM Punk later. He defeated Triple H in two of their three matches (the only loss coming at Wrestlemania 29) and then defeated CM Punk at the following Summerslam.


    Despite his dominant victories, Lesnar was denied a WWE Championship opportunity, and instead was booked in a match at Wrestlemania 30 against The Undertaker. Undertaker entered the match with a 21-0 undefeated streak at Wrestlemania, one of the greatest accomplishments in wrestling history, and most thought he would never lose on that stage. After a dramatic and brutal match, Lesnar pinned Undertaker and ended the Streak. Needless to say, the fans who were upset by Undertaker’s loss spawned many notable reaction images.




    Following this win, Lesnar then challenged John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the next Summerslam and won the title in a dominant victory. After a continued feud with Cena and later Roman Reigns, he held the title until Wrestlemania the next year, where he lost the title when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase during the title match between Lesnar and Reigns. Lesnar received a rematch against Rollins for the title later in the year, where his attempt to regain the title was ended by interference from The Undertaker wanting revenge.



    Lesnar had two more matches against Undertaker to conclude their feud from Wrestlemania 30. The first was a submission loss at Summerslam (pictured above) where Undertaker used a low blow to get Lesnar in the hold and make him pass out. The other was a bloody victory at Hell in a Cell to end the feud with Lesnar on top.

    Reputation


    Brock Lesnar has always been considered a physical freak of nature due to his immense size and athleticism. He was a strong competitor in both WWE and UFC, something that no other man has managed to match, and is considered one of the most dominant pure athletes of all time. His freakish size and noted arrogant smugness, along with his oddly unfitting voice and accidentally funny moments, has also led to fans thinking of him as sort of a ‘meathead’. His moments of accidental hilarity when he speaks for himself (instead of Paul Heyman speaking for him) have made him very popular on the internet even outside of his WWE/UFC fanbases.

    Online Presence


    Brock Lesnar has a dedicated twitter account, but much of his interaction with social media is done through his manager and advocate, Paul Heyman. He is a big part of Heyman’s Youtube channel as well.

    Related Memes

    - Bork Laser



    Bork Laser is a misspelled nickname given to Brock Lesnar, similar to the Dolan meme. The nickname, along with others for various wrestlers, originated from WWE matched being illegally posted on Youtube. To avoid takedowns and keep the videos on longer, the names of wrestlers were changed in odd and funny ways. Many of these nicknames have remained popular on wrestling message boards and have been incorporated in jokes similar to the Dolan comic posted above. Some examples of these nicknames include:


    Undertaker = “Nudertaker”
    Kane (or fake Kane) = “Jand”
    Chris Benoit = “Chrispin Wah”
    Hulk Hogan = “Hull Kogan”
    Kurt Angle = “Kirk Angel”
    Big Show = “Bog Show”

    -“MY CLIENTBROCKLESNARCONQUEREDTHE UNDERTAKER’S UNDEFEATEDSTREAK AT WRESTLEMANIA!”



    “My client Brock Lesnar conquered The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania!” is a catchphrase that Paul Heyman said (and it was said many, many, many times) after the events at Wrestlemania 30. Following his victory over Undertaker, Lesnar and Heyman continued to brag about the victory every chance they got, using this line and others such as EAT! SLEEP! CONQUER! REPEAT!” to show how dominant and powerful Lesnar is. The exact line, as well as the general idea of a challenger conquering a long winning streak, has since been parodied for other streaks being broken.




    Examples (seen above) include the Milwaukee Bucks ending the 28-game winning streak of the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA basketball season and Seagull Joe upsetting multiple-time Smash Bros 4 champion ZeRo at a major Smash tournament.

    -SUPLEXCITY, BITCH!”



    “Suplex City Bitch!” is another catchphrase often associated with Brock Lesnar, and references his repeated use of the German Suplex move to torture and punish his opponents in the ring. Though he first said the line during his Wrestlemania title match with Roman Reigns, his repeated use of the suplexes was first displayed in his Summerslam title victory over John Cena. Since his match with Reigns, fans have started bringing Suplex City signs and counting the number of suplexes Brock does in each of his matches.


    The line has also been turned into EAT! SLEEP! SUPLEX! REPEAT!” by Paul Heyman in a way similar to the previous meme. Plus it has been parodied online and even been remixed into songs (such as the one posted above) on Youtube.

    - Undertaker’s Screaming Face



    Undertaker’s Screaming Face is a photoshop meme that arose during Brock Lesnar’s Summerslam 2015 match with Undertaker. Though obviously not the star of this meme, it was Lesnar’s imitation (and mocking laughter afterwards) of Undertaker’s signature sit-up that triggered Undertaker to react in the way he did and make the original TakerFace that would become this meme.
