Pretty Girls, Ugly Faces is a photo fad in which girls take pictures of themselves while posing in an unflattering manner, making a silly face or performing a physically strenuous activity.
The single topic Tumblr blog Pretty Girls Making Ugly Faces launched on September 26th, 2011, featuring nine photos of different females making unattractive-looking faces by manipulating their mouths and necks. Throughout 2011, the blog was regularly updated with the bloggers’ own photos as well as user-submitted images before going on a hiatus in June 2012.
On July 13th, 2012, Redditor Catness_NeverClean submitted two photos to /r/Pics of herself (shown below, left) and her sister (shown below, right), comparing both their normal faces and their “ugly” faces side by side. In the post, Catness_NeverClean claimed that she and her sister had been making images like this since they were children. The post yielded more than 18,000 upvotes, 1360 points and nearly 1800 comments before it was archived. Soon, commenters began sharing their own comparison ugly face photographs, which culminated with the launch of the subreddit PrettyGirlsUglyFaces on July 14th by Redditor Sinkingfast. As of February 2013, the subreddit has more than 11,000 subscribers.
Five days after the subreddit launched, internet humor site AcidCow showcased 30 pairs of user-submitted “Pretty vs. Ugly” images. However, attention to the subreddit did not pick up major steam until January 17th, 2013, when Buzzfeed launched an “The Ultimate Ugly Face Challenge” inspired by the subreddit, inviting users to submit their own ugly face comparison photos. That day, /r/PrettyGirlsUglyFaces was featured on Mashable and the FW before being picked up by CollegeHumor a week later. On February 7th, Buzzfeed posted 50 images submitted in the Ugly Face Challenge, sparking a renewed interest in the subreddit. Over the course of the following week, photos from /r/PrettyGirlsUglyFaces were featured on a number of internet humor sites as well as culture blogs including Pleated JeansThe Frisky, Uproxx, xoJane, the Huffington Post, GirlsGuideTo and Heavy Comedy.
Additional images appear on Tumblr with the tags “pretty girls ugly faces”", “pretty girl ugly face” and “ugly selfie.” Both “#prettygirluglyface” and “#uglyselfie” are common hashtags on Instagram, with the latter having more than 2300 tagged photos.
On January 18th, 2013, the subreddit /r/HandsomeGuysUglyFaces launched, as a specific home for males partaking in this photo fad. As of February 2013, it has more than 200 subscribers.
Actual Sexual Advice Girl (ASAG) is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a brunette woman wearing a pair of black-rimmed glasses accompanied by captions relaying sexual advice to both men and women.
On February 11th, 2013, Redditor FarleyHatcher submitted an image macro titled “Actual Sexual Advice Girl [OC]” to the /r/AdviceAnimals subreddit, with the caption suggesting how to tell if a woman has had an orgasm during sex (shown below). Within 72 hours, the post garnered more than 1,100 up votes and 60 comments.
Actual Advice Mallard is an advice animal that was created in June of 2011, which featured captions containing life hacks and other useful information. Both ASAG and Actual Advice Mallard are unique in providing genuinely helpful or insightful advice, unlike most advice animal characters.
The same day, Redditor nurseladyherpaderp submitted another ASAG image macro to the /r/AdviceAnimals subreddit, which relayed advice to men attempting to receive fellatio (shown below, left). Within three days, the post received over 8,700 up votes and 620 comments. Several hours later, Redditor katrionatronica submitted another instance with the caption advising women to be more expressive about what they want in a relationship (shown below, right), which accumulated more than 15,000 up votes and 950 comments in less than 72 hours. Also on February 11th, both images were reposted to the Internet humor site 9gag, each receiving upwards of 20,000 up votes and several thousand Facebook shares.
As of February 2013, the “Actual Sexual Advice Girl” Quickmeme page has received over 250 submissions.

“420 Blaze it Faggot” is an ironic expression often used to mock marijuana enthusiasts and members of the “stoner” subculture.
On July 8th, 2012, Tumblr user welcometothedankside posted an edited comic panel of a father attempting to persuade his six-year-old daughter to smoke marijuana by saying “420 blaze it faggot” (shown below). Within the next seven months, the post received over 48,300 notes.

Chris P. Bacon is a pet piglet who was born without the use of his hind legs and uses a wheelchair to get around. In January 2013, his owner, veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero, began posting videos of the animal to YouTube, where he gained notoriety for his disability as well as his K’nex wheelchair.
Chris P. Bacon was born on January 13th, 2013 and soon after, his previous owner brought the newborn piglet to the Eastside Animal Hospital in Florida asking if it could be euthanized due to a congenital defect affecting its back legs. After being examined by veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero, the pig was otherwise healthy and instead of putting the animal down, Lucero brought the pig home with him to his farm, already home to goats, horses, dogs and cats. That day, he launched a Facebook fan page for Chris P. Bacon, which gained more than 19,000 likes in one month.
On January 27th, Lucero uploaded the first video of Chris P. Bacon to YouTube (shown below) where it amassed nearly 600,000 views in just over two weeks. Four days later, he launched a Twitter account for the animal, gaining more than 1300 followers in two weeks.
You had one job is an expression used to call attention to perceived blunders or fails. The phrase is used in a context critical of someone who has failed to perform the “one job” delegated to them.
The phrase originated with the 2001 film, Ocean’s Eleven, in which a well-planned and executed vault heist fails after a single step is missed:
[in a safe heist]
Basher: All right chaps. Hang on to your knickers.
[He triggers the bomb, and the safe door cracks open. Laughing, Basher dances into the vault – and the alarm goes off]
Basher: Oh leave it out! You tossers! You had one job to do!
On April 25, 2011, redditor nomdeweb submitted a capture of a credit slide from the 1993 film Jurassic Park to the /r/funny subreddit, captioning the image “You had one job in Jurassic Park. ONEJOB.” The image implied that, because of his position as supervisor of the film’s animatronic dinosaurs, Phil Tippett was responsible for the control of the dinosaurs and safety and the people within the movie. The post acquired 8,189 upvotes and 1,734 points overall prior to being archived. On September 12, 2011, the image was reposted by redditor tofupanzer, acquiring 21,948 upvotes and 2,239 points overall before the post was archived.
In April of 2012, 9gag user bcarring submitted an image of a sign promoting wildfire awareness with graffiti suggesting it was solely the responsibility of “Josh” to prevent such blazes, accompanied by an image of a forest fire with the caption, “Shit Josh! / You Had One Job!”
On April 15, 2012, FunnyJunk user pleasewelcomejc submitted a rage comic entitled “You had one job brain, ONEJOB.” As of February 14, 2013, the image had received over 120,000 views and 7142 upvotes. Several Imgur albums are also dedicated to serving as compilations. On October 1, 2012, a Facebook page titled “You had one job memes” was created, and had accumulated 48,551 likes by February 14, 2013.
2013 Russian Meteor Explosion refers to the meteorite impact event that took place over the Chelyabinsk region in Siberia, Russia on February 13th, 2013. The spectacle of the meteor streaking across the sky before exploding in mid-air was recorded on cameras from multiple vantage points near the impact site, the footage of which were subsequently uploaded to YouTube later that same day.
On the morning of Febraury 15th, 2013, a meteor entered the Earth’s atmosphere and shattered several kilometers above ground in Chelyabinsk region of Siberia, Russia. The shock wave caused by the explosion reached several cities in proximity, causing slight damage to buildings and injuring hundreds of people due to the broken glass falling from the buildings. The fireball and explosion was captured by dozens of cameras in the area, including dashboard camera and security camera footage, even from places 700 km away. It was initially thought to be a meteor shower, which was then discarded. Reports conflicted on what exactly happened. Eventually, a spokeswoman for the Emergency Ministry was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying it was a single meteor.
It didn’t take too much time until footage from the scene started to pop up on YouTube, almost all of them captured with dashboard and security cameras.
Other videos managed to capture the loud noise caused by the explosion on the higher atmosphere and the moment the blast reaches the ground (headphone users, please lower the volume):
In the following hours, one of the videos was posted on Reddit showing one of the videos. Within nine hours, the post gained 18,643 upvotes, 3,222 points overall and 200 comments.

My Little Pony: Fighting Is Magic was a crossover fighting game project based on the television program My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and the Street Fighter  video game series. The game, designed by a team of nine people known as Mane6, featured characters from the show fighting one another in a manner reminiscent of the Street Fighter franchise.
Development of the game began in the summer of 2011, prior to the airing of the second season of My Little Pony, using the Fighter Maker 2D game engine. Fighting is Magic was originally scheduled to be released upon the completion of the six main ponies, with further updates bringing the total to 17 playable characters. Mane6 released periodic updates on their YouTube channel; however, as of February 15, 2013, all videos have been removed.
On January 9, 2012, it was announced that Fighting is Magic had secured a berth to be showcased in an exhibition at the Evolution Championship Series (EVO), an annual fighting game tournament held in the United States, and was in the running to host one of the eight official tournaments at the event. The subsequent donation drive to determine the eighth tournament title was was won by Super Smash Brothers: Melee, and saw Fighting is Magic raise over five thousand dollars. However, prior to the end results, Fighting is Magic was removed from the official tournament runnings in favor of being highlighted in the Indie Games Showcase.
Game mechanics were similar to those used in Street Fighter, with each character featuring a unique move set based on their personality in the show; for example, many of Twilight Sparkle’s and Fluttershy’s attacks focused on books and animals, respectively. Each character also had a dedicated stage, such as Twilight Sparkle’s library and Fluttershy’s cottage, that included unique music created for each stage.

Cease and Desist
On February 8, 2013, it was announced that Mane6 had received a cease and desist letter from Hasbro, owner of the My Little Pony trademark, and been ordered to discontinue development and remove all My Little Pony-related content from the game, effectively terminating the project. Mane6 announced their intention to attempt negotiation with Hasbro, although the project remained indefinitely suspended.

#EmojiArtHistory is a Twitter hashtag associated with various strings of emoji characters that are supposed to be reinterpretations of famous artworks throughout history.
The idea for the hashtag came from a Tumblr post submitted by ladiesupfront on the evening of January 24th, which featured four iPhone screenshots of text messages sent from a friend who tried to recreate artistic masterpieces with emoji characters.
On February 11th, Brooklyn-based artist Man Bartlett reblogged the photoset, leading him to use the hashtag #EmojiArtHistory for the first time on Twitter with an emoji of a man and a gun to represent Chris Burden’s 1971 conceptual performance piece, Shoot.
Also on February 11th, art blog Hyperallergic featured a compilation post showcasing dozens of emoji art tweets, which further amplified the usage of #EmojiArtHistory to 1533 times that day alone. The next day, several art galleries and museums including Los Angeles’ J. Paul Getty Museum and London’s Tate Modern paid their homage to famous artworks with emoji tweets. On February 13th and 14th, #EmojiArtHistory tweets were featured on numerous art news blogs, such as ArtInfo, the Nashville Scene, Art Fag City, Animal New York and Complex Art&Design, as well as internet news and culture sites The Daily Dot, Wired and the Daily What.

Dawn of the Final Day is a catchphrase originating from the videogame The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. The phrase itself is most commonly used in combination with the anticipation of a near future event. Image macros often include The Moon or Majora’s Mask, both being notable objects from the videogame.
The gameplay in the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask revolves around an in-game three day cycle period, which marks the time left before the moment on which The Moon will crash onto Termina. It is possible for the player though to reset the time period, allowing to save major accomplishments such as the completion of events. During play, an on-screen clock tracks the time, and after each day the player will receive a note showing up on the screen reading how much time he has left before the collision.
In the events of December 21st, 2012, a day which through various mythological beliefs would mark the end according to the Mayan Long Count calendar, numerous gamers and other online communities started making connections between the date and the events in Majora’s Mask. On December 18th, 2012, three days prior to December 21st, the website terriblefate.com was launched, which showed a large image of Majora’s Mask hanging over a countdown timer counting down to December 21st. The site itself was created for video game remixer Theophany, who planned to release a Majora’s Mask tribute album on that day.

Gordon Ramsay (born in November 8th, 1966) is a British master chef, celebrity, restaurateur and ex-Association Football player who is famous for saving failing restaurants in Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and finding a head chef in Hell’s Kitchen. Ramsay is even more famous for scolding stupid people with his raging temper and extreme swearing.
In the early years, Gordon Ramsay was a Association Football player chosen to play for the Warwickshire and later the Rangers at age 15. His Association Football career caused too many injuries and he was known as “the football player with the gammy knee.” At age 19, he had a strong interest in a career on cooking which started his path as a chef. Since then, Gordon Ramsay’s has been awarded 15 Michelin stars (currently holds 14) and presenting British & US TV shows about competitive cookery and food.
When the US version of Hell’s Kitchen first aired on FOX Network in 2005, Ramsay’s perfectionism, short temper and swearing has been famous for captions in meme-related websites, including chans like 4chan.
“Why hasn’t you wanting to for many see more clearly makes the doable?” was a phrase posted on boards.4chan.org/vp/ on February 17, 2013 at 3:34 PM central time. It was in a response to a Pokemon Stadium thread, in which OP was asking the best team for the gym leaders. The Engrish post itself was to an answer, listing off suitable Pokemon for the specific game.
Why hasn’t you wanting to for many see more clearly makes the doable?
Fixing grammar errors:
Why haven’t you wanted to see more clearly for many, to make it doable?
No possible meaning at this point has been deciphered.
A joke response was posted “Are you serious? I has you wanting to for many, making the doable for many to see more clearly hasn’t. If you hasn’t you wanting to for many, you’re not see more clearly. It’s just common sense.”
This is most likely a copycat meme of “Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?”
The post was deleted by the poster minutes afterwards.
Haggard is a character popular on 4chan’s /v/ board drawn from a Sonic the Hedgehog connect-the-dots picture and used as a way to spur similar drawings of that connect-the-dots page.
The character was made after the original connect-the-dots page was posted online, when users attempted to figure out who the mystery character was.
It was found that the page was meant to be Dr. Robotnik’s face looking to the right, but the character created in the mess to find it stuck around.
Peyton’s Fluffy Chicken is the nickname of a white Silkie chicken that was featured in a post by Tumblr user thatsmoderatelyraven, who claimed her mother would purchase the bird for her if she received 500,000 notes on the microblogging site. Many Tumblr users got behind the campaign and helped her reach the goal by February of 2013.

On January 29th, the site “Peyton’s Fluffy Chicken Countdown” was created by web developer Joe Anzalone, which provided a live counter of the notes for Thatsmoderatelyraven’s Tumblr post. The same day, the Tumblr blog “Get Peytons Chicken” was created, which reblogged Thatsmoderatelyraven’s chicken post over 520 times in the next several days. On February 17th, a petition was created on Petition Site to “make fluffy chicken the new pope,” which garnered over 350 signatures in 24 hours.
On February 17th, 2013, the post had reached its goal of 50,000 notes. Several Tumblr users celebrated by declaring February 17th “Fluffy Chicken Day.” The same day, Peyton tweeted that she would be getting the fluffy chicken.
