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 Heck, I've only just clued in to gangnam style only to learn it's been superseded by something called the Harlem Shake.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

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...
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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
