30DW2-2 - Day 26: Deal With It

Okay, the younger and more with it (do they still say that?) among you may know that "deal with it" is an internet meme. Or I should say "was" an internet meme from a few years back.

The expression itself is not very polite but a curt response to someone who questions a certain activity in which he or she is being forced to participate. The expression, coupled with a gif (look it up) of dropping sunglasses (hell, I don't know why) became the most popular meme on the internet around 2010.

Now, I must have been doing my Rip Van Winkle thing because I seem to have missed this entirely. Heck, I've only just clued in to gangnam style only to learn it's been superseded by something called the Harlem Shake.

I don't know about you, but I've been doing part of that dance for years. Had three children doing it. Everything old is new again!

So what's next?

Seal With It - a meme with a black singer formerly married to Heidi Klum

Meal With It - first date, followed by sex

Let' s Make A Deal With It - they're changing the name of Wayne Brady's show because Monty Hall isn't happy (OMG he's still alive. Wikipedia says he's 91!)

Feel With It - close your eyes and stick your hand out. Trust me.

Heal With It - one of the many phrases used by the Jehovah's Witnesses after they ring your doorbell.

Kneel With It - see above

Peel With It - name of a strip bar in Montreal frequented by Cheesy Mike - before the Jehovah's Witnesses ring his doorbell

Reel With It - new fishing show on the Outdoor Network

Wheel With It - new drag racing competition

Zeal With It - latest line of energy drinks

So what do you think?

Any of these new memes have any kind of appeal with it?

Today I'm ordering you on over to We Meme For Cheese where Nicky and Mike are responsible for today's prompt. Not happy? Deal with it!

I'm finding "Feel With It" a bit unsettling... But I trust you, dufus. *sticks her hand out*

Okay, now what kind of cheese did you just stick your hand into?

I choose:

Zeal With It - latest line of energy drinks!
nonamedufus said…
I think I could use some.
meleahrebeccah said…
Me too. I am dragging today.
nonamedufus said…
Deal with it. (hee, hee)
Cheryl P. said…
I have to agree with Meleah. Zeal With It comes closer to any of the list that I might be able to deal with.
nonamedufus said…
Gee, maybe I could make some money from this!

You may be onto something here. ;)

Dammit man, this has been a long month. Are you the one dressed as the power ranger?! You're losing it, Doof! Roth
Nicky said…
Peel with it, because I know CheesyMike is too embarrassed to say so. :-)
P.J. said…
Meal with it, indeed!
Nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I think so.
Nonamedufus said…
No, I'm the one in pink. Pink's my colour you know.
Nonamedufus said…
I thought as much.
I will absolutely watch Reel with it!

I like the riskiness of Feel With It. Could be gross, could be exciting. But at least it would be different.
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
That ain't a cheese stick, Ziva. Back away very slowly...

Those all sound like winners to me. "Seal with it" has a particular resonance with me for some reason.

Could also be an ad for Crazy Glue.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
