I hope this meme never dies. As you can tell from the terrible Sarah Jessica Parker joke, I’m a big fan of pushing gags that stopped being funny a long time ago. Just this morning, while wearing my Harambe t-shirt, I pointed at a friend’s shoes and shouted “WHAT ARE THOOOSE!?” (I’m lying. It wasn’t a friend, it was an old lady in velcro sneakers. My last friend stopped talking to me when I told him “DAMN, DANIEL.”)
But seriously, we as a global society need to make a pact that we’ll name everything [blank]y Mc[blank]face any time our governments ask us to vote on something.
I can see the future now. The first people to live on Mars will travel on Rockety McRocketface. The next royal baby? Princey McPrinceface. And not too long after that, a chain reaction of catastrophic events, set off my the United States dropping Nukey McNukeface on China, will bring the world to its knees. Those lucky enough to land a spot in the top secret Bunkery McBunkerface will be tasked with repopulating the brave new Earthy McEarthface. May Goddy McGodface save us all.
