I usually don't fall in with these memes, but I will sheepishly admit that Google Monikering can be damned amusing. A few of the results won't be genuine answers that make grammatic sense—you can just ignore these. I will now torture you with my name using the standard theme:
- Ryan is crying while eating
- Ryan is hungry
- Ryan is saucy
- Ryan is cool by association
- Ryan is convicted
- Ryan is dating Jessica Biel
- Ryan is filthy rich
Why do these Internet "memes" amuse us so much, and why do they spread so rapidly through email, LiveJournal, MySpace, and other social networking sites? It's one of the more harmless social outgrowths of the Internet, and I believe it comes from a need to see how the random patterns of the world can circle around us as individuals. Seeing a computer screen spit back odd statement using your name, that special word that identifies you and that has lived with you since birth, appeals to a desire to see our very personal identifier used in strange ways. Your friends and family can tell you who you "is" ('scuse the awful English) if you ask them, but what does a random global network that links together corporations, homemakers, high school kids, charities, and pornographers think you "is"?
Or Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby?
Sorry, I just had to toss that Louis Jordan song lyric in there.
Remember, Ryan is cool by association.
