** [[http://hradzka.livejournal.com/194753.html OH JOHN RINGO NO]].[[labelnote:Explanation]] The phrase comes from a LiveJournal review of ''Literature/{{Ghost}}'', wherein the reviewer is reading along and finding something interesting, then runs into something totally, [[SickAndWrong brain-breakingly wrong]], prompting the uttering of the phrase. Given that the book, an exercise in letting loose some demons in Ringo's head that were blocking his writing other stories, was originally to be titled "The Wanker Piece" until Creator/BaenBooks marketing convinced Ringo otherwise, it goes without saying this was a frequent utterance on the reviewer's part.[[/labelnote]]

** Cliegg: Your son's dead, son. Accept it. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''StarWarsLegacy'', we see Luke as a ghost. Yes, he'd be over 150 now, but we have proof of Jedi living hundreds of years, even human Jedi. LFL won't say if Luke's alive or dead.[[/labelnote]]

** An InUniverse example in ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}: The Romulan Way'', where the main Romulan religion of the series' present (a form of animism focused on the Four ElementsOfNature, mixed with a concept similar to {{karma}}) began life as a memetic joke on [[TheAlternet the Vulcan version of the Internet]] thousands of years ago while the proto-Romulans were still planning things out. The meme proved so popular that idioms based on it developed among the proto-Romulans, e.g. that a particularly stubborn person "had too much Earth in him", and the fact that it was a joke was gradually forgotten.

*** Team Orlok

to:

*** Team Orlok[[Film/{{Nosferatu}} Orlok]]
*** Team [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Edward Elric]] -- because vampires aren't shiny, automail is!



*** Alternately, the Series/{{Doctor|Who}} killed him. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', Creator/DavidTennant's character (Barty Crouch, Jr.) masterminds the resurrection of [[BigBad Lord Voldemort]] and inadvertently causes the death of Creator/RobertPattinson's character (Cedric Diggory). Since Tennant is best known as [[TheNthDoctor the Tenth Doctor]] and Pattinson is best known as Edward Cullen, this led to a number of "the Doctor kills Edward Cullen" memes.[[/labelnote]]
