Holy Fucking Shit This Question Is Fucking Lame
September 10, 2008 10:01 AM   Subscribe

Trying to hunt down a minor internet meme. Looking for examples of someone (fictitiously) trying to sell something online, using copious amounts of foul language. Ex: "Holy shit, you've got to buy these motherfucking oranges, they are goddamn flavorful as hell."

I know I've seen a few examples of this recently, but my google-fu if fail.

I've only seen it on the chans, so I don't know the origin of it.

I think they all start with "LOOK AT THIS FUCKING (noun)". Here's LOOK AT THIS FUCKING CANDIDATE.

It's so big, it's fucking great. Not online, but great Mr. Show skit about swear-loaded advertising.

It's from the Onion: Why Can't I Sell Any Of These Fucking Bibles?

(An excerpt: "I honestly have no idea what the hell is going on. Why can't I seem to sell any of these fucking Bibles? I'm offering the best goddamn Bible I've ever seen--not some piece-of-shit Bible that'll fall apart before you're halfway through Matthew--and still, everywhere I go, I get the door slammed in my face. What gives?")

I think this satirical car commercial predates the Onion story.

There was a SNL skit within the last year or so, an ad for "Sofa King" whose prices were "Sofa King low!"

Not bad for network TV.

Holy shit, this isn't the shit you're looking for, but the goddamn Onion has been fucking all over this motherfucking shit since Man Walks On Fucking Moon in fucking 1999 or some shit.

More from Onion. I think this pretty much closed the book on that particular word.

Fuck no! There's more from The Onion where that came from.

That's right, kids! Summer's a whole fucking lot cooler with a delicious Frosty Fritz ice-cream treat!

It popped up on 4chan about last fall, give or take? Mostly was bland, generic products -- produce predominantly -- and didn't really have too many giant words initially.
