A catch phrase

Postby Firion345 » Sun Feb 22, 2009 5:49 am UTC

So I decided a few seconds ago that a catch phrase would be awesome to have. The problem is, I cannot think of any good ones. I am looking for one that can be used in all situations, and one that is not "Your mom" or "That's what she said". Can anyone give me any good ideas?
Sweet-hearted one, meditate on knowing and not knowing, existing and not existing. Then leave both aside so that you may be.

"You're a towel"

"Yeah? Well so is your face!"

"Billy told me to." <point to empty space next to you or next to someone else in group>

"Wait... what?"
Why is it that 4chan is either infinitely awesome, infinitely bad, or "lolwut", but never any intermediary level?

Dude, seriously? You want to get your badass catchphrase from an internet forum? When people write about the origin of your catchphrase on your Wikipedia entry, fifty years after you're dead, you want everybody to know that you got it from some random on the xkcd fora? Really?!

Goddamn, that is lame as hell. There's no point in a catchphrase unless you invent it yourself. You can't just steal a catchphrase. That's illegal.

That is true, if the government is told, they could cut off your internet.

Haha, what's really trippy is that your sigs are in sync, from my perspective.
Anything I said pre-2014 that you want to quote me on, just run it past me to check I still agree with myself.

They are the same gif, taken from the same site (because we both are kiwi, and have blacked out our avatars.) So they should be in sync. Just like the gif in my sig will be in sync with my other posts on this page.

I know that, it's just disconcerting.

"Complimentary generic statement."

It's ambiguous enough to be used in any situation and can be expressed as a question; "Complimentary generic statement?", "Yes please."

I'm rather fond of "in accordance with prophecy". It's been around for a while, but it seems to be sufficiently rarely used that it's still fresh, in accordance with prophecy.

"I bet you say that to all the boys" is probably my catchphrase. It's close enough that people associate it with me.

The problem with a catch-phrase is that if you are a real person and not a tv character people will start making fun of you for only being to say a limited number of sentences.
