  • 11/13/16--10:41: Andy Sixx's Log of Shit
  • Essentially, the joke began online as a troll on BVB’s Knives and Pens video on YouTube and then took off from there.

    The premise of the entire meme is that little fangirls are so obsessed with Andy Sixx that they want to go beyond normal sexual intercourse and foreplay and invent a new way to show their love and affection for the closet-homosexual cross-dresser. By integrating satire for America’s youth culture, the Andy Sixx Log of Shit meme proves its worth against millennials.

    Now this meme appears frequently over 4chan’s /b/ board and has taken on a life of its own. It’s just another resource to kill time with and everybody finds it funny.

    About

    I Am Forcibly Removed From the Premises is the short name for a snowclone popular on Tumblr. In the snowclone, the subject arrives at an establishment, then describes their attire in three lines, with the third being something lewd such as “dick:out.” The subject is then escorted from the establishment by security.

    Template

    I arrive at X
    (Body part): (Description)
    (Body part): (Description)
    (Body part): (Description)
    I am forcibly removed from the premises

    Origin

    On June 26th, 2014 by Tumblr user szyn[5] posted a text post to Tumblr that read, “headphones: in. world: off. dick: out.” The post has gained over 116,000 notes as of November 14th, 2016. This was likely the precursor to the first post to use the “I am forcibly removed from the premises” style. It was reblogged by Tumblr user psiduck on August 19th, 2016, and on August 21st, 2016,[6] they published a post that reads: “I arrive at the function. salmon: smoked. magic deck: shuffled dick: out.” The following day, psiduk reblogged the post and added “I am forcibly escorted from the function.”[7] The post, shown below, currently has over 54,000 notes.



    Spread

    On October 17th, 2016, Tumblr user babierats posted a story in the style of psiduk’s original post.[1] It reads:

    i arrive at the panera
    bagel: toasted
    cheese: creamed
    dick: out

    The same day, they reblogged the post[2] and added “I am forcibly escorted out of the panera.” As of November 14th, 2016, the post has over 63,000 notes.

    Babierats’ post led to a surge in variations on Tumblr, leading to the meme’s birth as a snowclone.[3] Many posts use the snowclone in fandoms such as Pokemon or the musical Hamilton. On November 12th, itai33 asked /r/OutOfTheLoop[4] about the origin of the meme. Users there theorized the meme grew popular because the line “dick:out” could have been a reference to Dicks Out For Harambe.
