Why a 13-year-old car thief from The Dr. Phil Show is about to blow up
The meme economy in 2016 was dominated by Harambe, Dat Boi, and Evil Kermit memes, but we've yet to see the first big meme trend of 2017 – until now.
People have been trying to make #SaltBae (an objectively attractive Turkish chef who sprinkles salt on some tasty looking meat) happen.
Stop trying to make #SaltBae happen. It's not going to happen. Unless you count 4 million Instagram views as "happening." Some people might.
A meme known as "Cash me ousside / Howbow Dah" is about to blow up the meme markets, so I'd start selling #SaltBae and start buying Howbow Dah memes ASAP.
Cash Me Ousside / Howbow Dah
KnowYourMeme.com reports that the origin of the Howbow Dah meme is an image of a guest on Dr. Phil, a 13-year-old car thief whose mother called her "out of control." The video (which has accumulated more than 9 million views, take that #SaltBae) tells all:
When Dr. Phil asked the girl where her accent comes from, she replied "From the street," but the audience applauded her when she called them a group of "hos," before dropping what we can only assume will become her ironic catchphrase when she goes to prison: "Cash me ousside, howbow dah." The girl then threatens to fight her mother.
So why is "Cash me ousside / howbow dah" about to blow up the meme economy?
We honestly don't know. Nobody can predict the meme market. But there will be a huge spike in Google searches for it when people see the phrase "howbow dah" on their Facebook timelines. I definitely Googled it.
Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
