Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = CRAZY DELICIOUS!


The following SNL memes have not been ready for prime time since the mid-70s.

  • Any combination of characters in a car, edited to headbopping to "What is Love" as per the SNL skits about the Roxbury Guys; the one with Jim Carrey joining them is apparently the best known.
  • In the future, there was a nuclear war. And because of all the radiation, cats developed the ability to shoot lasers out of their mouths. Some will use the cats for good, others for evil. Who will win in a world of.... LASER CATS?! [2]
  • Again, you're welcome.
  • She's chopping broccoli! She's chopping broccoli!
  • And robots are strong. Because they're made of metal.
    • Oops! I Crapped My Pants holds a lot of dung!
  • All I want is some Hi-C and some toikey!
  • Generallisimo Francisco Franco is still dead!
  • Jane, you ignorant slut.
  • Discussions of DA BEARS! and Mike Ditka as a Memetic Badass. (When Ditka left Chicago, they continued with a sketch about the fictional Bill Braske, continuing the same joke)
  • Stefon's characteristic antsy hand movements and weird looping muttering.
  • The Weekend Update closers. Includes:
    • Goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow.[3]
    • I am outta here! [4]
    • That's news to me.[5]
    • That's the way it is.[6]
    • That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.[7]
    • Also, Chevy Chase's introduction: I'm Chevy Chase, and you're not.
  • Suck it, Trebek! [8]
  • It's prrrrretty cool! [9]

...anyway, we've got a great show tonight! Trope-tan and the Wiki Witch are here, so stick around, we'll be right back!

  1. both of the above are catch-phrases of Dana Carvey's "Church Lady" character.

  3. Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler
  4. Dennis Miller
  5. Kevin Nealon
  6. Norm McDonald
  7. Colin Quinn
  8. A recurring line in Celebrity Jeopardy with Sean Connery constantly taunting Alex Trebek.
  9. The Catch Phrase Vanessa Bayer uses in her impersonation of Miley in the "Miley Cyrus Show" sketch. It helps that it's become an Ascended Meme due to Miley (and sometimes her little sister Noah) quoting from it on Twitter and YouTube.
