January 14: Shrek Is Love, Simpsons Is Life


Some days are blessed to be the birthday of some particularly classic memes, and today is the anniversary of a pair of absolute bangers. Today we celebrate two of the most cursed sentences in the English language: “Shrek is Love, Shrek is Life.” We also celebrate the dawn of the oldest “Simpsons” meme in Principal Skinner’s “Pathetic” and an iconic phrase in the internet lexicon, “Delete Your Account.” Let’s get into it!

Two Of The Most Cursed Sentences In The English Language: “Shrek Is Love. Shrek Is Life”

YouTubers parodied and reacted to it, and to this day, seeing the words “Shrek Is Love, Shrek Is Life” is enough to induce a shudder in all those who know of its true origin. Read more.

Delete Your Account, But Not Your Subscription To This Newsletter

Few put-downs on the internet cut to the heart of the matter as the simple three-word phrase, “Delete Your Account.” The meaning is as straightforward as can be: “You’re posting crap, and it would be better for everyone if you stopped being online.” It was a popular catchphrase in the mid-2010s until it grew so popular that it was actually tweeted by Hillary Clinton (or at least, someone on her campaign) to Donald Trump, effectively killing off one of the internet’s most succinct put-downs.
