Morning Grump.  
In addition to "X noun is X", I'm also incredibly tired of "Just look at this fucking ____". Seriously, guys, they've been done to death. Move on to some new annoying thing, at least.

Never heard the second construct - ever.

How you've missed this, I dunno, but you're lucky. Try this as an example of the overuse. Mostly used on pictures, I find.

Maybe it's just a boing-boing thing.

I wouldn't be so annoyed and tired of it if it was. That was just a convenient "lots in one place" link for ya.

Oh, I thought it might be that. Yeah, they're trying too hard to make it a thing. As far as I can tell, it is mostly if not entirely done with boingboing posts involving bananas. There is, of course, the danger that it could actually catch on, which would be bad.

BB picked it up long ago form the various "look at this fucking whatever" graphics that told how amazing something was in as stupid a language as possible. Been around longer than BB's banana thing, they just over use it now, as well.

I consider myself fortunate to have missed out on that, then. Of course, I will now be seeing it everywhere.

Origin of the "Just Look At This Fucking..."

It was allegedly something printed up to look like a missing dog flyer distributed on lightpoles and the like around the neighborhood.
Instead of the usual "MISSING" and "REWARD" info, it said...oh, wait...here it is.

In its original form, it is pretty damn funny.

Responds to Xerxes, indeed.

You're really cranky. :-(

Or perhaps tired of dead horses being beaten long after they've started to rot.
Drunk on immorality, valium and cherry winescurvykat on March 23rd, 2010 07:20 pm (UTC)
I think I'ma go with cranky. You shouldn't let such silly things niggle at you so much. :-\ Not much point in it, other than making yourself miserable.

If you ever have children, remind yourself that you said that when they get something in their heads that they like to say and you are really tired of it being repeated all day.
Drunk on immorality, valium and cherry winescurvykat on March 23rd, 2010 07:29 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's why we don't and probably won't ever have kids, cause I think I'd hit them with a shovel if they ran around repeatedly babbling retarded things. :-D

See? Now maybe you understand why seeing that same inane shit over and over again make me, as you say, "cranky."
Drunk on immorality, valium and cherry winescurvykat on March 23rd, 2010 07:33 pm (UTC)
I get the feeling you're taking this personally.
God of Thunder and Rock'n'Rollarchmage on March 23rd, 2010 07:43 pm (UTC)
Not particularly. Just not a big fan of expressing my being tired of seeing something and being told "oh, you're just cranky" or any variation thereof. Just tried to show why I might be annoyed.
Drunk on immorality, valium and cherry winescurvykat on March 23rd, 2010 07:47 pm (UTC)
I'm just making a comment, dude. That's the downside of posting stuff on LJ, as you know. People can comment on what you say. And what I'm saying is that you don't sound like a person who is tired of seeing something, You pretty much just sound like a cranky old fart who's pissed off at the world for just doing it's thing. :-( And I mean that in a very loving manner.
Jonathon Bartonjonathonbarton on March 24th, 2010 05:09 am (UTC)
Totally agree on the first count.

P.S. Dear Internets,

FAIL is a *VERB*.
It is not a NOUN. "This is fail."
It is not an ADJECTIVE. "That is fail Post."
It is not an ADVERB. "This is failing fail post."
Verb. "You fail to understand proper use of the word."

Got it?
snakesinspace on March 24th, 2010 06:32 am (UTC)
I have never heard the "just look" one before. I guess I have a sheltered Internet life. ;D Of which I am quite thankful. . . oh so thankful.

hm, hadn't seen much of that second one either (yet..)
