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 Heck, I've only just clued in to gangnam style only to learn it's been superseded by something called the Harlem Shake.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

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.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik
