  • 06/27/15--21:20: Nazi Furries
  • About

    Nazi Furries (also known as “Nazi Furs”) refers to both members of the furry fandom whom either idolize the Nazi party, as well as art which depicts anthropomorphic animals as members of the Nazi state.

    Origin

    On March 22, 2005 the LiveJournal group nazi_furs (officially: “Specilized German WW2 Uniform Fetish” Furs) was created.[1] The group’s given history states:

    The legacy of the Nazi Furs can be traced back to Allied-occupied, post WW2 Germany. With the fall of the Nazis and the end of the Lollercaust, Adolf Hitler initiated one last tactic to preserve The Third Reich before quitting IRL forever!!! The SS-Werewolves, a loose band of furries and otherkin, dressed as normal, Wienerwurst-sucking Krauts in the daytime yet at night donned their fursuits and ravaged the villages in Guerrilla style yiffing. The insurgency campaign struck the Allied troops hard but was unsuccessful in the end when the demoralized SS-Werewolves disbanded after a US bombing of a furry porn server. Even so, Hitler went to the grave knowing The SS-Werewolves would rise again to further his vision.Sixty years later, the SS-Werewolves began regrouping under the title “Nazi Furs,” a minor niche amongst the larger furry fandom. Despite the fandom’s taboo on social acceptance no matter how strange or tactless the fetish, the Nazi Furs have endured conflicts with rainbow-shitting, transvestite wannabes who perceive the group as a threat to their furry faggotry.
    It should be noted that this description is the same that is given on the “Nazi Furs” Encyclopedia Dramatica page.[2]

    Online Relevance

    On the Furry wikia, Wikifur, a page for the Nazi Furs group was created on January 22, 2008.[3][4] On Reddit there are several posts about Nazi Furries on the WTF and CringeAnarchy subreddits.[5][6] On June 25, 2010 YouTuber RNCoyote uploaded a clip of a woman arguing with a group of Nazi Furries (shown below, left). On June 6, 2012 YouTuber TheTehruler3 uploaded a compilation of various Nazi Furry artwork (shown below, right).


    Furzi

    Furzi[7] was a Nazi Furry group with in the online virtual world Second Life. The group came to mainstream attention when the group came into a confrontation with Jewish Second Life players which resulted in the deletion of the group, all members’ inventories, the perma-ban of the group’s leader, and the arrest of another member.[8][9]

  • 06/28/15--07:01: Johnny Johnny Yes Papa


  • About

    “Johnny Johnny Yes Papa” is a nursery rhyme about a young boy named Johnny who eats sugar without his father’s permission. Lacking in lyrics, story, and message, the song found itself the subject of online mockery and parody.

    Origin

    Though its exact origins are unknown, “Johnny Johnny Yes Papa” was first uploaded to youtube on July 9th, 2009 by Shemrock, a Playschool Chain located in India.[1] Notable for its poor quality, the video garnered over 2.9 million views in the following six years.



    Sung to the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star”, the lyrics are as follows:

    Johnny! Johnny!
    Yes, Papa?
    Eating sugar?
    No Papa,
    Telling a lie?
    No Papa,
    Open your mouth,
    Ha! Ha! Ha!

    Spread

    Four years later on August 2nd, 2013, the song experienced new found popularity when ChuChuTV, a children’s entertainment group, uploaded their own version of “Johnny Johnny Yes Papa” (shown below).[2] On November 14th, 2014, ChuChuTV released an updated version of their first “Johnny Johnny Yes Papa” together with other popular nursery rhymes. [7] As of June 27th, 2015, the videos have gathered respectively over 70 million and 280 million views.



    The videos were subsequently mocked due to the lackluster lyrics and the bizarre nature of the animations. However, this did not deter other children’s entertainment groups from creating their own interpretations in an attempt to appeal to new viewers .[3] Threads discussing the song eventually made their way onto sites like 4chan[4] and Reddit,[5] where they were readily ridiculed. On June 3rd, 2014, the r/johnnyjohnnyyespapa sub-reddit was established.[6] In the following year, the sub-reddit gained over 800 subscribers.

Similar to other well-known reaction GIF memes, these images are often featured in My Reaction When posts, especially on the image-sharing community Imgur.

Upon seeing the two kiss, Kocoum, the tribe’s second-in-command warrior that Pocahontas was supposed to be marrying, hurls himself into John Smith while letting out a battle scream in a jealous rage.[1] Reddit user ajaxknight remade the scene in a high quality GIF on February 1st, 2014.[2]



    Spread

    The GIF has been in use for My Reaction When posts since at least June 8th, 2015, when it was posted in the /r/reactiongifs subreddit by user BigJ76, where it received 4,580 points (95% upvoted).[4] Then, according to the Imgur blog, the evolution of the popularity of the image began to rise even further on June 25th, 2015, when user ruinedeye posted the above high quality GIF to Imgur with the caption, “MRW I remember that I hate the smell of leaves”. The post received 1,129,665 views, over 9,000 points and 195 comments in four days. That day, user ShagPurple reversed the GIF, and posted it with the caption “MRW I remember I love the smell of leaves”, which received over 933,00 views, over 10,000 points, and 112 comments in four days.[5] The reaction GIFs have also spread into wide use on Tumblr.[6]

  • 06/30/15--11:10: World's Ugliest Dog Contest
  • About

    The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual contest at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair where dogs compete for the titular crown. The contest, which has been running since the 1970s, has caused several unconventional-looking dogs to become famous. Each winner receives a $1000 prize and a trophy.[2]

    History

    The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest has been running annually in the fourth week of June since the 1970s, and as part of the Sonoma-Marin County Fair in California since 1988.[2] The contest attracts entrants from around the world, and for several years the contest was sponsored by and aired on the television channel Animal Planet.[6] The contest is also used to promote shelter adoption for dogs, as many of the winners have been adopted from shelters or puppy mills.



    The contest has been featured in a book, called World’s Ugliest Dogs: The Official World’s Ugliest Dog Contest Book and in an hour-long documentary called Worst in Show.[3][4]

    Online Presence

    The contest began to have a noted online presence when online voting began in the early 2000s, via the Sonoma-Marin County Fair web site.[1] However, the online voting has no bearing on who wins the contest, which is decided by a rotating cast of judges.

    In 2005, the contest reached widespread audiences after the third win of a hairless Chinese Crested named Sam. Sam’s ugliness was so profound that he became an international star, including a role on television as a cat on Criss Angel’s Halloween special Mindfreak.[5] Sam is often considered to be the mascot of the /co/ board on 4chan. Sam died in 2005 at the age of 15.

    After Sam’s fame, the contest retained an annual notoriety, with the winner being announced and publicized every year in late June.

  • 06/30/15--15:54: Shabani the Gorilla

  • About

    Shabani is the name of a silverback gorilla who currently resides at Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, Japan. In May 2015, the 18-year-old ape became a subject of an international idol and celebrity animal on the web, especially among young women in Japan, mainly for his apparent photogenicity and attractive facial features.

    Origin

    Shabani was born at Apenheul Primate Park in the Netherlands in October 1996. Two months later, in December that year, the newborn ape moved with his family to Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia, where he spent most of his formative years, before relocating again to Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, Japan in 2007. In the following years, Shabani established himself as the protector of his pack and started his own family with two wives and fathered two children, according to the zoo officials.



    However, the western lowland gorilla, who is in his late 30s or early 40s in human years, didn’t rise to the status of a national sensation in Japan until March 2015, when a photograph of Shabani and one of his mates, Ai, taken by a visitor from a panel at the zoo went viral on the Internet. While the image was originally intended to highlight a fist-pumping gesture made by Ai, the focal point of online conversations quickly shifted to the male gorilla, as many Japanese Internet users on Twitter began obsessing over his strikingly photogenic appearance.

    Spread

    Between March and May 2015, Shabani’s photogenic fame continued to gain traction in the Japanese social media under the hashtag-nickname #Ikemen (シャバーニ), or “good looking man,” followed by several local news reports about the rising star and being cast as the official campaign model for the zoo’s spring festival, which culminated with a notable appearance on the front page of a major web portal site. On May 23rd, YouTuber Masayuki Nishimura uploaded a video recording of Shabani resting in his enclave, which garnered more than 300,000 views in just over a month (shown below).



    In June, Shabani’s Internet stardom began to approach its peak as major Japanese news outlets like NHK and NTV jumped in on the media coverage, while the volume of complimentary tweets about the ape continued to grow manifolds, mostly from young female zoo-goers swooning over the ape’s good looks.

    Impact

    As a result of the viral fandom surrounding the animal, Higashiyama Zoo has reportedly seen a sharp increase in number of daily visits, almost double the usual count by the officials’ estimate, particularly among the young female demographic.

  • About

    Hey kid, wanna ‘X’? is a snowclone used to indicate an interest in a certain type of pornography, typically either furry art, or a specific form of hentai known as “straight shota”.

    Origin

    The original phrase, “Hey kid, wanna yiff?”, was coined on the FurAffinty forums on May 4, 2008 in a thread called, “Furry Pickup Lines”. Later that same day user Dyluck posted, “HEYKID, WANNAYIFF?” as his pick-up line. [1] Later that year on June 18, 2008 a user on Leftover Lounge posted an article entitled “Hey kid, wanna yiff?” in which they describe their thoughts on the growing furry fandom. [2]

[3] It is probable that the image had been commented on over 2 years prior on the FurAffinity forums, however both hyperlinks that led to two photos have since expired. [4]



    On January 2, 2012 YouTuber LAPFOXTRAX uploaded a video entitled “The Quick Brown Fox – YEAR OF THEBADDRAGON” in which the lyrics state:

    Hey kids, wanna yiff me with Bad Dragon dicks?

The phrase began sometime in either 2008 or early 2009 on the image board 7chan by users of the /ss/, or straight shota, board. On June 1, 2009 an Urban Dictionary entry was made for “/ss/” simply describing it as “straight shota”. [5] The phrase has been used numerous times on various boards across 4chan some of which have been archived on Archive.moe. [6] On December 27, 2012 YouTuber OOOzw uploaded a clip from the 1983 anime series Ginga Hyōryū Vifam in which a younger male character shares a kiss with an older female character (shown below).

    In January 19, 2014, Markiplier posted a video of the first part of his playthrough A Late Night Drink, a custom story from Amnesia: The Dark Descent. While Markiplier is looking for a key (4:16), he found a tiny wooden crate near him and finds it adorable. Markiplier names it Tiny Box Tim, and so the fandom of Tiny Box Tim is born.

  • 07/01/15--09:41: Thot

  • About

    Thot is a denigrative slang term, originally defined as an acronym of “That hoe over there” but now generally used as a synonym for hoe or slut, especially in the context of trap music or modern rap.

    Origin

    The exact origin of thot is unknown, however word was first defined on Urban Dictionary on December 5th, 2012 and has since been independently defined 127 times.

    Complex magazine claims that it originated in the Chicago Drill music community, and was first popularized by the local rapper Katie Got Bandz in her song “Ridin’ Round and We Drillin,”(below left) released on March 12th, 2012.[2] On April 30th, 2012, another Chicago rapper named TKO released a single called “I Need a Thot” (below right).



    Also according to Complex, a man named Duan Gaines claims to have first heard the term on set for a video shoot with Chief Keef. He then began using it on social media, popularizing the term.

    Spread

    In 2013, the word was used in many other song lyrics and titles, including KB’s “No Love for a Thot”, Chief Keef’s “Shine” and “Love No Thotties,” which received over 19 million plays on YouTube. It has also been used in songs by The Game, Juicy J, and Wash.

    The term maintains a steady usage on all social media platforms, averaging between 10,000-15,000 uses per day on Twitter.[3] Parody accounts like @Thotverses, created in April of 2012, have become popular, with more than 25,000 followers. In different Twitter and Instagram arguments, celebrities like Rihanna, T.I., Chris Brown, Azealia Banks, and 2Chainz have used the term against each other and overzealous fans.[4]

    More than 20 top search results for the term on Reddit have received more than 1000 points, including 10 which originated in /r/blackpeopletwitter.[5]

    The term is popularly integrated into several hashtags, including #thotsbelike, which is more popular on Instagram, and #youknowyouathot, which is more popular on Twitter.[7] On Instagram, the tag #thotsbelike has over 91,000 posts as of June 2015.[6] The term “thot” returns over 91,000 results on Vine in the same period.

    Criticism

    The criticisms for thot are similar to that of its synonyms. Writers have called the term misogynistic[4], but some have identified it as also being a classist slur, similar to basic bitch and ratchet, identifying a woman who is not only sexually open but also interested in using her sexuality to receive inexpensive goods.[9]

    Thot Walk

    Thot Walk is a style of dance marked by bouncy stepping in slow, rhythmic motion popularized by a 2014 hip hop song with the same name by Atlanta-based rappers Kayleb, Yung Cyph and John Boy. Since its debut in June 2014, both the song and the dance has spawned a series of audio-dubbed parodies and tribute performances on the video-sharing platform Vine.

  • OVerview

    #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches is a Twitter hashtag launched to bring awareness to a series of fires and arsons that took place at predominantly black churches across the Southern United States in June 2015, prompting many Americans to speculate that the incidents may have been racially motivated in connection to the renewed Confederate Flag debate in the aftermath of the Charleston Church shooting earlier that month. However, the officials leading the investigation so far have found no evidence of hate crimes that can be linked to the fires.

    Background

    Church Fires

    On June 21st, 2015, a fire was reported at the College Hill Seventh Day Adventist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Firefighters discovered stacks of hay and soil placed around the church’s doors that had been deliberately set aflame. On June 23rd, a fire was reported at the God’s Power Church of Christ in Macon, Georgia. Investigators subsequently ruled that the fire was intentionally caused by an arsonist. On June 24th, the Briar Creek Road Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina was destroyed in a fire In a statement on their Facebook[1] page, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) federal agency released a statement noting that their was no evidence that the crime was racially motivated or related to the other fires. The same day, the Fruitland Presbyterian Church in Gibson County, Tennessee burned down, which investigators ruled may have been caused by a lightning strike. On June 26th, the Glover Grove Baptist Church in Warrenville, South Carolina was set ablaze. Investigators subsequently ruled the cause as “undetermined.” The same day, the Greater Miracle Temple Apostolic Holiness Church in Tallahassee, Florida set fire due to a downed electrical wire.

    Notable Developments

    #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches

  • 07/01/15--16:36: Let's McFreaking Lose It
  • About

    The phrase “Let’s McFreaking Lose It!” originally came from a series of public-outburst, prankcam-esque Vines, the first of which was posted on February 1st 2015, by Matt Krath. Although the locations vary, the setup is usually the same, with a costumed Krath shouting wildly and usually being asked to leave the establishment.

    Origin

    The infamous origin vine features Krath, standing in a Ronald McDonald costume screaming “LET’S MCFREAKINGLOSE IT! GETOUT OF YO MIND!” at McDonalds patrons in Keller, TX. (All of the locations are in the central Texas area) Day 1 of the Vine series, shown here, has him in a much smaller McDonalds, pouring what appears to be an ICEE or soda over himself, and thrusting his pelvis.

    Spread

    Later on, Day 4 of the prank series was posted, yet another Ronald vine. Day 4 was an exception to the previous formula. (Posted on Feb 4, 2015) It is no longer set in a McDonalds, rather a Taco Bueno in North Richland Hills. It also does not feature the iconic phrase, however. Krath yells to the employees that “THISPLACE IS UNDERNEWMANAGEMENT! BADA DA DA DA! YOU’RE ALLFIRED!” as can be seen here.

    The last “true” McFreaking Vine was posted on Feb 7, 2015 as the 7th and final prank vine. and features Kirth again in the Ronald suit standing on a table in an atrium area of Northeast Mall in Hurst, TX. In the center of a sizable crowd, he again shouts the iconic phrase, sans ICEE and thrusting.

    The meme later made it’s way to Tumblr sometime around April 2015, where it began to circulate as a series of photo captions and text posts. The entire tag can be viewed here:
    https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/lets-mcfreakin-lose-it
    Although it is currently hard to locate any of the more popular posts from the high point of the phrase’s popularity.
    Very little of it has been posted on Facebook and Twitter other than the original vines, suggesting Tumblr may have popularized it. (It can’t be confirmed for sure) Although, as of late interest in the meme has seemingly died out.

    Recently, Ronald has been a less-occuring character in Krath’s Vines, although he recently appeared in a short vine in late April where he bursts through a set of doors and screams “I’M TAKINGOVERTHEMCFREAKINGWORLD! BADA BA BA BA!” and proceeds to slam his face into a fast food bag, miming ravenous eating noises. No further Vines containing the Ronald parody or the iconic meme have been posted.
