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 Heck, I've only just clued in to gangnam style only to learn it's been superseded by something called the Harlem Shake.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)

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!

Dammit man, this has been a long month. Are you the one dressed as the power ranger?! You're losing it, Doof! Roth

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...
Ziva said…
Ewwww.......!

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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
