Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

The memes are what make many of the comments on Giz great. Of course, that's usually the first 5-10 times you see them used and it has to be in the right context. After that, people just start to use them way too much and they lose their punch. These include:

1. Sent from my iPad

2. Will it blend

3. Will it run Crysis

4. Robot overlords

5. Best $5000 ever spent
