  • 05/21/17--21:32: Torilla tavataan!
  • Torilla tavataan! (and its various versions, such as Tortillat avataan) is a sentence used to celebrate when anything remotely related to Finland can be seen in the original post. For example, if a youtuber mentions he’s been to Finland, there are bound to be tons of comments celebrating the fact using the sentence “Torilla tavataan!”.

    Torilla tavataan! roughly translates to “Let’s meet at the marketplace!” and originates from the Finnish tradition of flocking to marketplaces to celebrate when something important, such as winning the ice hockey world championship, happens.

    Torilla tavataan! is often followed by a bunch of Finnish comments each stating what they will bring to the marketplace, for example Finnish politicians such as Timo Soini, or kalja (beer).

    Most often appearing on 9Gag, the less the original post has to do with Finland, the more likely the most upvoted comment is “Torilla tavataan!”. For example, if the Finnish flag can just barely be seen in the post, the comment section will be full of Finns, but if the post is directly about Finland, English comments will probably appear first.

  • 05/22/17--19:20: OHIO FRIED CHICKEN B*TCH
  • This meme originated from a YouTube video from Jake Paul published on May 5, 2017. The video was dedicated to Anthony Truj’s 21st Birthday. Jake Paul decided to have 20+ chickens put in the kitchen area of the Team 10 house in Los Angeles, California; and Jake turned on the stove. Then, Jake yells “GET A CHICKENBOI!” as a response to Erika’s comment about offending vegans. He then shouts “I’M GONNAFRYONE UP!” He then spontaneously shouts out “OHIOFRIEDCHICKEN” after Anthony brings over a chicken, and in the background, Chance Sutton yells “OFC B*TCH”, creating the meme that would be shown on the video a few seconds later as an obvious parody of Kentucky Fried Chicken. This is accompanied by an image of the mascot of Kentucky Fried Chicken, Colonel Sanders, but with the face of the Colonel Photoshopped out with a line drawing of Chance Sutton’s face. After the original quote is said again, a stereotypical “announcer voice” started reading the fine print that shows up on screen that stated “Results may vary. Any health or medical issues are no our fault.” The “not” in the accompanying voice over seems to be intentionally misspelled on-screen. The meme is present in the video from about 8:30 to 9:00. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/RhEbuDjR13M?t=8m32s

    This meme was formed because Jake Paul, Anthony Truj, and Chance Sutton are all from the state of Ohio in the USA. They display their heritage, sometimes extremely overbearingly, on the two YouTube vlog accounts “Jake Paul” and “Chance and Anthony”, as well as their personal Instagram accounts.

    The OHIOFRIEDCHICKEN meme appeared again on the Jake Paul upload on May 22, 2017.

  • 05/23/17--07:34: Finland Doesn't Exist
  • WIP

    About

    Finland Doesn’t Exist refers to a joke conspiracy theory that the European nation Finland is a hoax created by the Japanese and the Russians to give the Japanese free reign to fish in the Baltic sea.

    Origin

    The origin of the hoax is a response to an AskReddit thread titled “What did your parents show you to do that you assumed was completely normal, only to later discover that it was not normal at all?” On December 27th, 2014, user Raregan replied, “My parents never believed in Finland, I grew up to never believe in Finland until I researched it further. It’s a pretty heated topic in my family.”[1] When pressed as to why, he provided the full details of the conspiracy (shown below). His comments gained 5,586 and 6,718 points, respectively.

    Oh God here goes.
    Well firstly they say that the actual ‘place of Finland’ is just Eastern Sweden. Helsinki is in Eastern Sweden and when people fly there it’s not like they would notice.
    World maps are altered as it’s a U.N conspiracy to keep people believing in Finland. And the idea that an entire country is made up seems so bizarre that nobody would ever believe it, making it easy to do.
    Finland’s main company, Nokia, is apparently owned by the Japanese and they’re a main player in this.
    Now as for ‘why’ people would want to invent Finland as a country that’s a bit more in depth and there’s a few reasons as to why Sweden and Russia go along with it but it’s mostly to do with Japanese fishing rights.
    You see the Japanese love their sushi but tight fishing regulations and public outcry mean they can’t fish as much as they want. So after the Cold War they agreed with Russia to create a ‘landmass’ called Finland where they could fish. After all, if people thought there was a country there nobody would expect the Japanese to be harpooning whales would they?
    The fish is then transported through Russia where a small percentage of the food is given to the population, (they were of course starving at the time of Finland being invented), and then is shipped to Japan under the disguise of ‘Nokia’ products. Japan is apparently one of the worlds largest importers of Nokia products despite the fact that ‘nobody there owns a Nokia phone’ apparently.
    The crux of all this however, and my favourite part, is the homage that the Japanese gave to this entire conspiracy theory.
    What do fish have? Fins. Therefore they named their imaginary country Finland.
    There are loads more that they go on about but I can’t remember it all at the moment.
    EDIT: Thanks for the Gold! I’m amazed how big this has gotten, I told my parents and although they don’t really understand Reddit they’re glad that the ‘truths’ being put out there for people to make their own decision.

    The phrase “Stop Staring At Me With Those Big Ol’ Eyes” is said by the Flying Dutchman to SpongeBob (shown below), in the season two episode “Your Shoe’s Untied,”[1] which first aired on November 2nd, 2000.
