  • 01/08/17--14:58: Stu, a gross is 144 eggs
  • About

    Stu, a gross is 144 eggs is a Tumblr Post that features Stu Pickles ordering a Gross of eggs and somehow not realizing that a gross is 144 eggs. This sparked a post to have multiple edits and gain quick popularity.

    Origins

    The scene is from Episode 5b on Season 3 of Rugrats titled “the Stork” aired on Oct 24, 1993, on Nickelodeon. The first source of the meme showing up is a video that was posted on Jun 13, 2010

    Spread

    On May 11, 2016, a Tumblr user by the name of omny87[1] made a post about how much chances Stu would have to realize his mistake.

    Stu, let me ask you a question: how did you not realize until then that you had too many eggs? Nobody sells eggs in a big cloth-covered basket, so you must have done that yourself. That means you spent god-knows-how-long opening up twelve whole cartons of eggs, carefully placing each egg one-by-one inside a big basket, and then covering it with a big picnic cloth… and at no point- at no point- did you ever stop and think “gee, there might be TOOMANYFUCKINGEGGS HERE”

    You really have lost control of your life.

  • 01/10/17--09:09: Tomi Lahren
  • About

    Tomi Lahren is an American television and online conservative political commentator known for her talk show Tomi on The Blaze.[1] In 2016, she gained national attention for her conservative commentary on the 2016 United States presidential election, most notably through the videos of her “Final Thoughts” segment which spread widely on social media.

    History

    Lahren first hosted her own show, On Point With Tomi Lahren, on One America News Network beginning in August 2014. There, she began drawing attention following her commentary on the Chattanooga shootings[2] and commentary in which she countered the idea that Republicans are old rich and white by pointing to prominent Democrats, saying, “Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden. Old, rich, white, and if the pantsuit fits … male too?”

    In August 2015, she did her final show with One America News Network and in November of that year began her show with The Blaze. Here, she introduced her “Final Thoughts” segment, which became particularly popular on social media. One of her first segments to draw national attention was her “Final Thoughts” on the Colin Kaepernick National Anthem Controversy, aired in August 2016 (shown below).



    On November 30th, 2016, Lahren appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah for a 26-minute interview segment (shown below).



    While Noah attempted to listen and reason with her, critics noticed that Lahren dominated the segment, reiterating her opinions without regard for Noah’s objections.[3] This led to a divided reaction among liberals. Some praised Noah for his candor in the face of Lahren’s obstinance,[4] while others criticized him for allowing Lahren’s viewpoints to reach their widest audience yet.[5]

    Reputation

    Lahren is known for her controversial, conservative stances on issues, particularly issues of race. She is most known for being anti-Black Lives Matter, and many critics have called her racist, which she disputes.[6] Some critics have even gone so far as to call her “White Power Barbie” and “the next Ann Coulter.”[7]

    Online Presence

    Lahren is very popular on social media, with over 486,000 Twitter followers[8] and over 3.8 million Facebook likes.[9]

    Old Tweets

    On January 9th, 2017, Twitter users began retweeting old Tomi Lahren tweets from when she was a college student.[10] Some of the more popular tweets, some of which Tomi Lahren has since deleted, featured her talking about partying using the hashtag “#popthatp” (short for “pop that pussy”), while in others she complained about summer school and working for her mom.

    Wrong Names

It also spawned a brief Twitter trend in which people called Tomi Lahren other names that began with T. The moment was covered by SelectAll.[13]



    One of the most popular tweets regarding the incident was tweeted by @bboothie,[14] showing the character Tammy from Bob’s Burgers, a middle school reporter from an episode in which the character Tina acts as an investigative journalist, and Tomi Lahren, captioned “i now see how wale got confused.” The tweet, shown below, gained over 32,000 retweets and 67,000 likes.



    Tomi Lahren Logic

    As Lahren grew more popular, Twitter users began using images of her face during one of her “Final Thoughts” segments to make outlandish political statements in parody of Lahren’s style. Around this time, an edited image of Lahren to make her mouth look especially large also began appearing with these types of jokes. The Daily Dot[14] covered the spread of these jokes on January 10th, 2017.



    Personal Life

    As of January 10th, 2017, Lahren is 24 years old. She grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota, and attended UNLV, which she graduated from in 2014.

    Super Mario Odyssey is a video game in the Super Mario series by Nintendo due to be released for the upcoming Nintendo Switch console.

    History

    When Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch on October 20th, 2016, its trailer offered a glimpse at Super Mario Odyssey.[1] Nintendo formally unveiled Super Mario Odyssey with a trailer (shown below) at the Nintendo Switch event held on January 12th, 2017.



    The trailer first finds Mario in a city similar to New York City, dubbed “New Donk City” in the game. It appears the game will return to the open world-style of game found in titles like Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario 64. Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto also said that Odyssey would return to the tougher, less casual-friendly style of those titles.[2]

    Reception

    Reaction to the Super Mario Odyssey trailer has been mixed. Kotaku[3] noted that while the game looks fun, the city setting that includes realistic human beings made Mario appear out of place. Users compared the idea of Mario in a realistic human world to the notoriously awful-looking Sonic ’06, as well as Grand Theft Auto and the Simpsons episode where Homer enters reality.

    Origin

    On October 25th, 2016, Reddit user Chamale[1] responded to a thread asking “Health Inspectors of Reddit, what’s the worst violation you’ve ever seen?” by telling a story of their stepdad working as a baker in an authentic 18th century recreation of a New French fortress. After convincing the health inspector that the kitchen was as health-conscious as possible without sacrificing the integrity of the 18th-century recreation, they saw an escaped cow of the fortress licking all the bread. Redditor poem_for_your_sprog, whose gimmick is to respond to comments by turning their content into poems, wrote a poem[2] in response to the story that read:

    my name is Cow,
    and wen its nite,
    or wen the moon
    is shiyning brite,
    and all the men
    haf gon to bed -
    i stay up late.
    i lik the bred.

    The comment gained over 32,500 likes in 3 months.

    The poem was instantly a hit among poem_for_your_sprog fans. The account’s devoted subreddit,[3] which as of January 19th, 2017 has almost 5,000 subscribers, regularly references the poem. Soundcloud user hindulaatti wrote a song[4] using the lyrics of poem_for_your_sprog’s “i lik the bred” and subsequent poems written in doggo speak.



    On Tumblr, the poem was an instant hit. The day it was posted to Reddit, user phantomrose96 posted a screenshot of the poem. In 3 months, their post has gained over 127,000 notes.[5]



    The poem grew a fandom on Tumblr, and inspired many parodies, artworks, and homages.[6] One of the more popular parodies was written by user sashayed[7] that wrote a poem about a cow licking a cat. The post and its subsequent discussion have gained over 17,000 notes.
