It saddens me that it's $45.

Ghastly: It saddens me that it's $45.


..and looks worth an even 4 cents.

I've seen other pictures of him like that with a sammich in his hand, and it just looks like to me he's really focused on savoring his sammy.

It's the last picture a reenactment of Kirk Cameron's birthday party?

Stillborn child in 2000, girlfriend dies in car crash in 2001. I've never seen the humor in mocking the guy's grief.

Now a "sad Jaden" figure, that could have potential.

Keanu wasn't grieving when this picture was taken. He was sitting on a bench eating a sandwich like three years ago.

I once took a Polaroid of my mother when she was angrily talking to me and it came out looking like she had just rolled out of bed and got stoned out of her mind. Pictures don't always reflect the situation of the moment they capture.

I loved that picture...for the entire 30 seconds of its existence before my mother destroyed it.

It's still horrible posture, and posture conveys a lot of body language information.

Newsflash: Some people grieve longer than others. He's very candid about the trouble he's having bouncing back.

I'm not inside the guy's head, and maybe he was just musing over a sandwich, but for me personally, "sad Keanu" has too much backstory to appeal to me as a meme.

Sean O'Neal is one of two reasons I still read AV Club.  Damn can that man write scathingly funny pop culture 'news'.



You can't go wrong, because there is no wrong. There is only endless, inescapable, life-or its hollow, plastic facsimile.

Or recent Bieber updates:

Of late, Bieber's more confrontational, avant-garde explorations in being irritating have included: peeing in a mop bucket, challenging the conventional notion of mop buckets not having some kid's piss in them; spray-painting monkey and penguin graffiti, representing the idea that celebrities are trapped just like zoo animals, and also that Justin Bieber thinks penguins are dope; and haunting a Brazilian brothel dressed as a spooky ghost, a stand-in for the lingering specter of society's prudishness about prostitution, and the classic Freudian connection between death and banging biatches. It also included not actually retiring from music, his most antagonistic artistic statement yet.

Knowing that the revolution begins at your $6.5 million-dollar home, Bieber's latest piece involves throwing two-dozen eggs at his neighbor's house-eggs being a symbol of birth, of course. Bieber, the Internet's hatchling, has left the nest, preparing to spread his swaggy wings and be fly.


And one of my all time favorites, "You May Have Neglected To Consider That Britney Spears Didn't Like Breaking Bad's Finale"

The past nine days spent discussing Breaking Bad in such a way that it maximizes SEO has so far yielded Miley Cyrus' critical opinion ("There's just a lot of him coughing"), plus various other things that are perhaps not as well-considered or important. But until now, we've neglected to ask ourselves what Britney Spears thought of the finale, so that we could put both Breaking Bad and Britney Spears in a headline and, having done a man's job, stagger into the sea to die.

It's so beautiful.

I'm just a simple cave man, I do not understand your complex emotions and such.

This.
Or struggling through a dry sammige, either way it's a very goal oriented pose.  It's not just him that makes people think "sad", it's the windswept unkempt look to his hair, the ambient/cloudy lighting, the ghettoish surroundings and casual clothes.  All of that in stark comparison to a sunny red carpet event in Hollywood, wearing a suit and a smile.

People simply fail to be self aware is all.  Sane people that are intelligent just see a guy trying to eat a sammige, whether he's enjoying it or not, it just happens to be pretty much all that's on his mind, so he's comfortably slouching.

O'Neal is Lord of the Snark, that guy's writing has had me in stitches many times.

That was my thought as well.

Next up I'd like to see an action figure of Jake Gyllenhaal laughing at food.

That is awesome. Got to get one so I can put it on the shelf next to Buddy Jesus.

There needs to be a Phobe Cates in Fast Times At Ridgemont High  doll.

I'd also accept a Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Secretery doll.

(No picture. Nope.)

Listen, man, I am a proud ally, but I looked up that guy's name on GIS and I'm pretty sure he does gay porn. I will admit that he's very beefy and handsome.
 
2014-01-26 09:32:51 AM  
Yup. Totally gonna have to add this to my collection of action figures...  Since he seems to be in scale with Billy there, it'll be perfect with the rest of my Figma.
