    What I gotta do to get it through to you I’m superhuman
    Innovative and I’m made of rubber
    So that anything you say is ricocheting off of me and it’ll glue to you
    I’m devastating, more than ever demonstrating
    How to give a motherfuckin’ audience a feeling like it’s levitating
    Never fading, and I know the haters are forever waiting

    Giga Nigga is the moniker given to a peculiar photograph of famous bobybuilder Paul Dillett showing up his muscles with a grin on his face. Beyond the obvious racist connotation, parodies emerged on 4chan transforming him into a fierce online forum game boss that users have to defeat by successfully triggering what is commonly known as a quads get, which means having the last four digits of a post number being the same.

    Origin

    The photograph itself was widely shared online among bodybuilding enthiusiasts (shown below). An early example from October 31st 2007 can be found in a forum thread on the Bodybuilding Dungeon website[1].



    While it has not been archived, the Giga Nigga nickname is rumored to have originated on imageboard 4chan. Its earliest online mention originated from the website blol.me[2] in which user Stefanus commented GIGANIGGA IS LOOSE!” on a repost of the photograph, dated July 14th 2011. It shows that the meme had existed prior. In addition, its earliest depiction as a game can be found on Funnyjunk, in a screenshot[3] from August 8th 2011 by user Gardevoir showing an edited version of the photograph being supposedly “defeated” by another user rolling 3,333 (shown below).

    On Funnyjunk alone, several references to the game, either on the site itself or on 4chan, were posted between 2011 and 2012[4][5]. Around December 2011, a macro titled “Gigga (sic) Nigga” was submitted to the troll.me website[6], accumulating to 12 pages of parodies as of March 2015.

    About

    The Piero Scaruffi Beatles Copypasta is a copypasta taken from an analysis about The Beatles by music critic Piero Scaruffi. The quotation has gained infamy for its critical attitude toward the band, as well as its perceived air of pretentiousness.

    Origin

    Beatles, a retrospective article on rock group The Beatles, was published on Piero Scaruffi’s website in 1999.[1] In the article, Scaruffi makes the claim that The Beatles are overrated by many other critics due to their fame. The copypasta, which was translated to English from its original Italian, is taken from its first paragraph, reproduced below.

    The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as “the greatest or most significant or most influential” rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.

Scaruffi readers are still blinded by best-of lists: Trout Mask Replica was listed higher than everyone else (not true, by the way), therefore it must have been the greatest. Pitchfork readers grow up listening to a lot of Pitchforkcore of the past, Robert Christgau readers grow up listening to a lot of Christgaucore of the past.

    “Prepare to be Crackerized”– joe_cracker

    About

    The Legend of Zelda: The Light of Courage is a The Legend of Zelda-inspiredfanfiction created by IGN board user Robert C. McGee, aka “joe_cracker”, who was convinced that his Zelda fanfiction was destined to become an animated movie based on Nintendo’s “Legend of Zelda” series. The videos, created by Sexualburgerking, Cellius, Orquiox, parody the story and its creator through use of literal interpretations of the script, purposefully done animation errors, and other visual gags. The main draw of the series has been its “so-bad-it’s-funny” sense of humor.

    The entire script can be read here[1]

    History

    In 2003, McGee began posting threads on IGN’s message boards detailing his script and story for “The Legend of Zelda: The Light of Courage”.[2]

    McGee attempted to get the rights to The Legend of Zelda through petitiononline.com and even handed out flyers in his home town in an attempt to garner attention for his project. IGN Board user TheSpotlight eventually agreed to help McGee with his script, but eventually, in summer 2004, he left the boards out of frustration, as Joe reportedly had been ordering TheSpotlight around like an employee and was trying to get him to do all the major writing for him.

    In late 2004, IGN Board user *Cellius_*18 joked that McGee’s script had been stolen by a big name producer and was being made into a feature film. McGee believed the message to be genuine and attempted to give the producer, which he named “The Cheese” or “Cheese Head” (To contrast his name, cracker, as in “Cheese” and “Cracker”), a cease and desist, which failed, seeing as how said producer did not exist.

    Board users Sexualburgerking (Who at the time was pretending to be John Grusd, the director of the 80’s Zelda cartoons), Cellius, and Orquiox convinced McGee that the only way to stop the movie from being produced was to make the movie themselves. The three then created a “test animation”, claiming it to be a WIP video by film and TV production company DiC entertainment, which had previously worked on adaptations of “Sonic the Hedgehog” and “Madeline”. The short was made to be intentionally bad so as to convince Robert McGee once and for all that his grand plans for a Zelda movie were in vain. The video was posted on YouTube in 2006. (shown below)



    However, McGee was still convinced that the test animation was legitimate. SBK, Cellius, and Orquiox then produced a second short in 2006 to further shake sense into him.



    By the production of the third video in late 2006, “joe_cracker” finally realized that the entire thing had been a joke. An updated version of the third short was released in 2008 with annotations explaining the inside jokes and backstory that had led up to this point.



    Later in 2008 a teaser for “The Light of Couage 4” was released.



    By then, however, the project had been abandoned with all involved feeling the joke had gone on long enough.

    several short joke animations called “Bitcrushers” featuring the LOC characters were also created during that time.

  • About

    The Hunger Games Simulator refers to the simulator that allows users to create their own hunger games arena death match with basically anybody -- or anything -- that they wish participate. When the user has begun the games, the simulator handles the rest until there is only one survivor left. Screen caps of humorously out-of-character actions done by the participants in the games (such as they killed or how they died,) are often the highlights of the simulator.

    Origin

    The concept and rules of the Hunger Games Simulator is inspired by the book-turned-film The Hunger Games. The rules of the hunger games is that there are 12 Districts. Each district has two participants, meaning there is a total of 24 participants. Alliances can be formed in the hunger games, but ultimately the death match is not over until there’s one last person standing.

    Spread

    The game is quickly gaining momentum in tumblr with multiple users creating their own death matches[1].

  • 03/07/15--12:19: Burger King
  • About

    Burger King is a global hamburger fast food restaurant chain headquartered in Miami-Dade County, Florida. It is currently owned by “3G Capital” of Brazil, whom bought ownership to the franchise in 2010.[1] The franchise slogan currently reads, “Have it your way!”

    History

    In 1953, Keith J. Kramer and Matthew Burns opened a Jacksonville, Florida-based restaurant chain named “Insta-Burger King.” In 1954, financial problems forced Kramer and Burns to hand the franchise over to David Edgerton and James McLamore. The two later renamed the restaurant chain to simply “Burger King” after the company once again faltered in 1959, and the franchise became an independent entity for 8 years until ownership was sold to the Pillsbury Company in 1967. Over the next 22 years, poor operation and ineffective leadership caused the restaurant chain to decline, which eventually forced Pillsbury to sell ownership to the company “Grand Metropolitan” in 1989. The company became an independent entity again in the early 2000’s when “TPG Capital” bought ownership for $1.5 billion US dollars. In August of 2014, Burger King officially announced a planned merger with the Canadian restaurant and coffee shop chain “Tim Hortons” in an effort to improve both franchise’s qualities. The merge was successfully completed 4 months later on December 12th, 2014, making Tim Hortons part of “Restaurant Brands International” alongside Burger King.[2]

    Impact

    In 1971, Burger King had spread beyond the United States by this time and attempted to open a brand in Australia. However, the name was already trademarked by a takeaway food shop in Adelaide. Burger King then presented Australian franchisee Jack Cowin with alternative names derived from pre-existing trademarks that had already belonged to Burger King and Pillsbury at the time. Cowin ultimately decided on the derivative of Pillsbury’s “Hungry Jack”, naming the new Burger King brand “Hungry Jack’s”, which is currently the only Burger King brand in Australia.
