Charlie Sheen memes are dead

Until Charlie Sheen invents a new way to freak out (and sex dungeon/cult is not enough), we’re done with Charlie Sheen references. We (the internet meme elite, who are already past whatever is big on The Daily What today) are mostly done with Sheen. Yes, tiger blood. Yes, F-18. The man is obviously an animal and a self-destructive force. Let’s stop encouraging him.

This is when you know a meme’s dead. When a corporation latches onto the joke, not completely aware of how it works. You know when your dad sits down next to you and tries to learn what videogames are? No? It didn’t happen to me either, but let’s say he did. Suddenly an adult liking that thing is going to make it less cool. So thanks McDonald’s, for taking the hit.
