Planking and coning are so 2000 and late. Tebowing had its time to shine in 2012, but with a new year comes new celebrity memes. Not quite caught up on Lawrencing, Riccing, Dufnering and LeBroning? Here’s your meme cheat sheet.
LeBroning actually began in late 2012, but is just now starting to pick up steam. It’s defined as “the action of throwing yourself to the floor after a light brush by another player, person, or animal. Followed be an angry facial expression claiming it is not in any way your fault that you are on the ground.”
There are no shortage of Vine videos, mostly by teenage boys, displaying the physical act of LeBroning. I think it’s safe to say this is a trend that King James would like to see fouled.
PGA golfer Jason Dufner tweeted an explanation of the picture that went viral of him in 2013, saying “What can I say, I was tired, my back hurt from sitting on the floor, and we were talking about relaxation and focusing.” This trend probably isn’t going to help win any arguments against people who think golf is boring.
Teeny, tiny actress Christina Ricci created her own Riccing meme after posting a picture of her tiny frame inside a fridge and a dryer on her Twitter page. Us common folk and celebs alike have been getting in on the trend, but I think ex-NFL player Michael Strahan may need a bigger area for his Riccing.
Made popular by Arrow star Colton Haynes during last Sunday’s Golden Globes, Lawrencing is the act of draping one’s self, one’s dog, one’s Barbie, etc, in an outfit similar to Jennifer Lawrence’s Globes dress. Here’s a full list of our Lawrencing faves from around the web.
