Green Room

Out: Planking, Tebowing. In: “Milking”

posted at 1:59 pm on November 26, 2012 by

This is an anti-meme, i.e. a goof on meming, that’s going to end up becoming a bona fide meme, isn’t it?

Not mega-viral (yet), but viral enough for a slow-news-day spread in the Daily Mail:

Tom Morris, 22, who was behind the video said: ‘We were just in our kitchen talking about doing it outside Starbucks in Jesmond and thought it would be really funny.

‘We did that, uploaded the video to Facebook and got a load of likes. So then we thought “why not just make a video”?’…

Student paper The Tab Newcastle reported that students in Edinburgh, Nottingham and Cirencester are all filming their own versions of Milking Newcastle as the trend spreads across the UK’s institutions for higher education.

Makes more sense than most of the other things I’ve been seeing lately.

Oh, that’s going to be delightful on a hot summer day. Can’t wait to walk by those puddles.

At, like, $4 a gallon, this is officially stupider than planking.

And I love it.

Abby Adams on November 26, 2012 at 2:15 PM

That is so stupid…

AllahPundit!

What’s a guy have to do to get a Walking Dead Thread?

Glenn was awesome last night.

Blake on November 26, 2012 at 2:32 PM

Showed this to a friend, and he suggested they have a white milk t-shirt contest.

bbordwell on November 26, 2012 at 2:33 PM

Yes, Blake! I hope he hasn’t caved to the people who get on TWD threads to talk about how they don’t want to talk about TWD! (Or want anyone else to be able to talk about it either.)

Alana on November 26, 2012 at 2:44 PM

Awwwwwww, those were the days my friend, long past…still not as good as hanging out at San Fran State in the early 70’s and picking up dumb liberal chicks who were protesting the war…

Meh.

Call me when “battery aciding” starts.

GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!!

Ever since Allahpundit got his tattoo, he’s ignored the needs of others.

Glen has even buffed out in this episode. When he is hugging poor half naked Maggie, he looked like he put on some serious muscle in his arms. All that zombie killing. Glen could do it with both hands tied behind his back, which is exactly what he did last night.

I see that they have only chosen WHITE milk. The shocking lack of milk diversity in these videos makes me sick. What a bunch of racists!

Pork-Chop on November 26, 2012 at 4:57 PM

Next up: researchers apply for government grants to determine if skim, 1%, 2% or whole milk is best for milking.
