    About

    “How do you do, fellow kids?” is a reaction image commonly used to respond to users pretending to be part of a community that they are clearly unfamiliar with. The image features the actor Steve Buscemi dressed youthfully and holding a skateboard, and is usually subtitled with the tag line. The image is often photoshopped to adapt to a particular subculture, and the phrase is often used in conversation without the image.

    Origin

    The reaction image first aired as part a scene in episode 401 of the NBC television show 30 Rock, first aired on October 15th, 2009. In the show, Steve Buscemi plays a private detective hired as a strike buster.[1] In a scene where the detective is describing his prior investigations, he flashes back to a scene where believes he successfully masqueraded as a high school student.



    Much of the scene’s humor comes from Buscemi’s grizzled appearance in contrast with his silly approximation of high school attire, including a backwards hat, a skateboard worn over his shoulder, and a t-shirt that reads “Music Band” in the style of the classic AC/DC logo.

    Spread

    A subtitled screen capture first began to appear online in spring of 2012, just as 30 Rock was about to air its last episode, because the moment was featured on many viewer’s lists of best jokes from the show.[2] From there, it spread as a reaction image. The phrase is used frequently on Reddit, where the subreddit /r/fellowkids has more than 50,000 readers as of August 2015. The subreddit is used to share examples of people or corporations trying to “be cool” and “blend in,” often expressed through overuse of internet slang or emoji]

    The phrase is in frequent use on 4chan, where, for example it has 57 uses on the /v/, or video games, board.[4] The gif is more popular on Tumblr, and there are four separate blogs titled “How do you do, fellow kids.”[5] Several versions of the gif and image have more than 100,000 views on Imgur.[6]

    On several web sites, including RedBubble and Skreened, the t-shirt Buscemi wears in the scene is available for sale.[7]

  • 08/13/15--21:22: Oliver Sin Piernas


  • About

    “Oliver Sin Piernas” (lit. “Legless Oliver” in Spanish) is a urban legend which claims that the main character of the anime series Captain Tsubasa, Tsubasa Ozora, wakes up during the last episode, and realizes that all of his football (soccer) career was a dream, lying in a bed without his legs. This legend is mostly localised in Spanish-speaking networks, where there’s a widespread belief that this event actually happened in the anime, however, it never did. [1]

    The legend also inspired an exploitable image, normally used to indicate that someone is living a delusion. This makes it common among “trolling” Facebook groups that dedicate to make jokes about current events, especially those involving sports. The image is sometimes captioned, and Tsubasa/Oliver’s face is frequently edited to show the face or logo of the target that is supposed to be deluded.

    Origin

    Captain Tsubasa (Japanese: キャプテン翼 Kyaputen Tsubasa), also known as Flash Kicker, is a popular long-running Japanese manga, animation, and video game series, originally created by Yōichi Takahashi in 1981. The series mainly revolves around the sport of Association football.[2] Captain Tsubasa is better known as Supercampeones in Latin America, and as Campeones: Oli y Benji in Spain.[3] This anime was massively popular in both regions, and inspired prominent footballers such as Hidetoshi Nakata, Alessandro Del Piero, Fernando Torres, Zinedine Zidane, Lionel Messi, Alexis Sánchez and Andrés Iniesta to play football and choose it as a career.[4]

    The exact website where this particular template originated is unknown, as is the origin of the widespread myth of the “legless Oliver”. However, Google Trends makes it clear that the myth appeared around 2007, because no references to Tsubasa/Oliver being a leg amputee are available at earlier dates.

    Spread

    Even though this myth is relatively recent, considering that the original anime was transmitted during the eighties and nineties in the aforementioned regions, it is prevalent among both Latin American football (soccer) fans and otakus.

    There are several videos on YouTube showing edited clips of the anime, supposedly showing the moment where Tsubasa/Oliver is in his hospital bed after the amputation of his legs (shown below). The exploitable version of this meme is most commonly found on Facebook groups dedicated to football jokes, used with other memes such as Bad Luck Brian and rage comics. [5]

    About

    BRRRT is a term that describes the noise of twin engine ground-attack aircraft A-10 Thunderbolt II firing its cannon GAU-8 Avenger.

    Origin

    [Still researching]

    Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a twin-engine straight wing jet aircraft designed for CAS (Close Air Support) missions – it is used by the United States Air force since March 1977. Its main feature is that it was designed around the 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon, which is usually loaded with depleted uranium shells, hence why it is really effective against armor. The most distinctive feature of the A-10 is the noise that the GAU-8 makes due to the bullets breaking the sound barrier when discharged, known as the “BRRT” sound.

Because it led to a major increase in fan-made pony characters, which may have been made easier due to specific pony creator tools, game threads using the “[Your name] + the pony” formula started appearing as early as 2011. Such examples can be seen on The Escapist forums[7], LukerFAQs[8]4chan[9] and even Reddit[10].
