[[quoteright:250:[[Creator/SeanConnery http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ytmnd_9953.jpg]]]]

[[http://ytmnd.com/ You're the Man Now Dog]] is a humor site.

The creator, Max Goldberg, made the first site after watching the trailer to ''FindingForrester''. This first site (recreated [[http://oldschoolytmnd.ytmnd.com/ here]]) consisted of some ASCII art and {{Sean Connery}}'s "You're the man now, dog!" line from the trailer. As other people started to create their own Spinoffs of the page by copying the code, Max started listing them. Eventually the list became overly long, so Max bought an entire domain for the sites and made an easy-to-use site generator. And the rest is history.

The main feature of the site is to allow users to create their own pages, or [=YTMNDs=], using a still image or GIF animation, an [=MP3=] file and the site's patented zooming text.

It has its own [[http://wiki.ytmnd.com/Main_Page wiki]].

----
!!'''This site contains examples of:'''

* AbandonedArea: The Abandoned Theme Park
* AGodAmI: Ted Danson
* AlternateUniverse:
** After the trailer that started it all was posted as an [=YTMND=], many users started wondering what would have happened if Max had decided to use one of Sean Connery's other lines, namely "Punch the keys, for God's sake!" or "Yes... Yes!". Eventually, some users started creating BizarroUniverse versions of popular [=YTMND=] fads under the label of [=PTKFGS=]. Soon after, sites with the [=YESYES=] label followed, which is basically a TakeAThirdOption spin on the fads. Then, since Connery only had these three lines in the trailer, many users worked around it by using some of his other lines from the film to create a fourth Alternate Universe. Which one of the many candidates is the true fourth universe is still under dispute, but the general consensus seems to be that the fourth universe is in fact a [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]] known collectively as "Fourth Corner".
** [=HEH=] is considered by some to be the official 4th Corner Universe, as it is also in the trailer. However, those against this idea point out that [=HEH=] is technically a part of the "Yes...Yes!" line.
** Let's not forget YTMNSFW, the NotSafeForWork version suitable for more mature stuff.
* AnimalReactionShot: Dramatic Prairie Dog.
* AnimalSuperheroes: Supercat (Happycat/The NEDM cat sometimes takes this role too)
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Used in the Medieval fad (although some people get it wrong and cross the territory into SpockSpeak instead)
* AnythingThatMoves: Dr-L337
* BeamSpam: Baron Lasers.
* BigEater: Ugoff is often portrayed this way, due to the line in his commercial where he announces "Ugoff is hungry!" [[http://ugoffisindestructible.ytmnd.com Occasionally]] verges into ExtremeOmnivore
* BigNo: Darth Vader's NOOOOOOO was a major fad which started from a leaked scene before the movie was released. In addition, often other characters are made to say the line
* BoringInvincibleHero: Parodied with some of the entries in Zaalnog's GROARNAK series.
* BrokenRecord: Every site plays sound in a loop. Some sound bites are shorter than others.
* BuryYourGays: The [=FaggotPSA=] gang seems to often enforce this.
* {{Catchphrase}}: In ye old days of 2006, the troll sexymofo would serially downvote any YTMND with "you fail, please try again ^_^". The trolling was prolific enough to trigger rage and memes... and inspire similar trolls to leave catchphrases of their own.
* CloudCuckooLander: [=VinnyWeapons=], the user who always made the same comment: "the robots have taken me. please send help." Also, the behavior of trolls Pilleater and JohnnyLurg often reaches this territory, such as the time the former user pretended that he went blind. Two months later, he posted, "I can see again!" The user zomglolwtfzor usually epitomizes this trope, but occasionally breaks character.
* ConquerorFromTheFuture: Future Conan, overlord of all Earth in something like Literature/NineteenEightyFour.
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: The site "''WorldOfWarcraft'' is SeriousBusiness" misreports it as a recording from a ''WorldOfWarcraft'' ventrilo - Anyone who's played the game can tell you there's almost ''no'' way for someone to steal their "Cloudsong", nor is there a "Mordred" server in the game. That's because the drama was actually around ''DarkAgesOfCamelot'' and not ''WorldOfWarcraft''.
* CreepyBasement: The short - lived "We never go down there anymore" fad.
* CuteButCacophonic: "How to care for your pet Bat" (batt.ytmnd.com)
* {{Deconstruction}}: [[http://wiki.ytmnd.com/FAMILY_GUY_311_EMISSION_IMPOSSIBLE FAMILY GUY 311 EMISSION IMPOSSIBLE]] and [[http://wiki.ytmnd.com/Everysentenceutteredinthegodfath Everysentenceutteredinthegodfath]], both of which were mockeries of sites that posted unmodified video clips masquerading as YTMNDs.
* DramaticReading: "[[http://baumanletters.ytmnd.com/ The Bauman E-mails: A Dramatic Reading]]" is the TropeCodifier, if not the TropeMaker.
* DyingTown: The site itself. There was a time when the internet was young (not actually, 2006 and 2007) the when front page moved so fast, it'd be different every time you refreshed. Now, it stays static for days on end. It's portrayed as a zombie town in [[http://returnofmax.ytmnd.com/ this site]], and a wasteland in [[http://newuserytmndtutorial.ytmnd.com/ this one.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Raptor Jesus, stolen from [[ImageBoards 4chan]] and made into a {{Leet Speak}}ing CloudCuckooLander who occasionally liked the flesh of his followers.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The "You Spin Me Right Round" and "Ridin' Spinnaz" fads.
* ForcedMeme: [[http://wiki.ytmnd.com/Forced_fad Here's a list of them.]]
* ForTheEvulz: Seemingly Moon Man's primary motivation, aside from racism
* FrickinLaserBeams: Baron Lasers
* GiantEnemyCrab: YTMND was one of the first sites to popularize the phrase, and it has become somewhat of an accepted fact that in the YTMND universe, Samurai actually did battle Giant Enemy Crabs in Ancient Japan
* GreedyJew: Many users poke fun at the site's owner, Max Goldberg, with this stereotype. He usually takes it in stride.
* {{Hatedom}}:
** God help you if you make an [[{{Anime}} anime-related]] site on {{YTMND}}, the guide to creating a site even warns you against it.
** Ironically, [[http://ytmndjapan.ytmnd.com/ ytmnd.co.jp]] is in the hall of fame and [[http://kaneda.ytmnd.com/ Kaneda!]] is a mod favorite. [[CowboyBebop Cosby Bebop]] is also popular.
** Often an anime site will be immediately downvoted, and a comment will be posted linking [[http://animeisforfaggots.ytmnd.com here]]
** Same goes to MMORPG stuff. This was because, in the early days of YTMND, many WorldOfWarcraft related [=YTMNDs=] were created and linked to the WoW forums, generating massive numbers of views every day, which annoyed the general YTMND population, having to see sites containing inside jokes about a game most of them didn't play on the front page day after day. This still happens occasionally, and because of this, WoW - related sites are usually downvoted upon creation.
** A single silly page with some sound loop is [[SarcasmMode serious business.]]
** YTMND also hates 4chan with a passion, having been one of the top meme-spewing, in-joke creating internet content sites (barf).
* HeManWomanHater: Chad Wardenn.
* ItsAWonderfulPlot: [[http://poland4life.ytmnd.com/ This site]], which involves the Poland fad.
* JailBaitWait: Many users eagerly counted down the days until Julianna Rose-Mauriello, the actress who played Stephanie on LazyTown, would become 18, and made many [=YTMNDs=] celebrating the occasion when it actually did happen.
* KillerRabbit: Happycat/The NEDM cat, who often burns humans alive as retaliation for humans burning cats
* LaughablyEvil: This seems to be the entire appeal of the Moon Man fad/character.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-AfvgFfSSk This track]] from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' indicates that [[MemeticMolester Brian Peppers]] is around the corner.
* LoudnessWar: The FPA and ear rape fads, some mixes would easily reach levels 12 or 13 on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness, such as [[http://vote5moonmankhanvaderbergkampfpa.ytmnd.com/ this]] (and that's only a roughly typical example). There's also the requisite screamer [=YTMNDs=], some of which manage to crawl up to the front page.
* LuckBasedMission: The game itself.
* MagicFeather: Part of the plot of a fictitious "EPIC PACARD" movie detailed in the comment section on [[http://europeisnotenough.ytmnd.com this site]]
* {{Mondegreen}}: Two fads based on them:
** The first involves taking one line from a song that sounds like something else and pairing it with an appropriate picture. This collection was named the "Dew Army," after [[http://dew.ytmnd.com/ a famous YTMND]] of DavidHasselhoff singing "[[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Du]]"
** The second is the opposite: involving taking an entire song sung in a foreign language and using InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike to write English lyrics for it. This one started with an interpretation of the Finnish version of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'' theme, which was actually spun off from a "Dew Army" type site which only interpreted one line from the theme as "Your arms are broken!".
* MundaneMadeAwesome:
** The "Epic Maneuver" fad, wherein people do things in an unnecessarily epic manner, sometimes failing. The original was taken from an overly dramatic and badly acted UnnecessaryCombatRoll underneath a really slow-moving door from StarTrekTheNextGeneration.
** There was a civil war once over whether the Epic Maneuver [=YTMNDs=] should be about ''actually'' epic maneuvers or mundane tasks passed off as epic.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Baron Lasers
* NoodleImplements: Macgyver must do something. He is given 14 seconds and some random junk. He usually succeeds.
* NothingIsScarier: PlayedForLaughs in the "For the last time" fad. Taken well UpToEleven in [[http://baboongone.ytmnd.com/ this particular YTMND]], however. [[spoiler:There's a screamer at the end.]]
* OpinionMyopia:
** The user Umfuld, who thinks only the kinds of sites he makes are any good and anyone who makes different kinds of sites is deliberately trolling and trying to ruin YTMND, and he does things like automatically downvoting the sites of every user he doesn't like using multiple alternate accounts because of this
** This was also the reasoning of the famed user "inkdrinker", who believed that the only YTMND's that were any good followed the original site's mission of "picture, text, sound". He downvoted thousands of pages that included videos, effects, soundclips that went on longer than a few seconds or anything that bucked the trend of the original sites.
* OverlyLongGag: The "[[http://wiki.ytmnd.com/Extended_Cut Extended Cut]]" Fad.
* OverlyLongTitle: "[[http://ylmtiotocytstwotdadsfse.ytmnd.com/ You Let Me Take It On This One 'Cause You're Too Scared To Walk Out The Door And Do Something For Somebody Else.com]]", based on a line from the CallingTheOldManOut scene in ''FindingForrester''. Incidentally, the actual movie had a word cut out for the trailer ("...'cause you're too [[PrecisionFStrike damn]] scared...").
* PerverseSexualLust: Stephanie from LazyTown (to the chagrin of many [=YTMNDers=])
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Moon Man.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman:
** Charles Moonington, Moon Man's stereotypical British alter ego.
** Prehistoric Dinosaur, a parody of Moon Man related to TheLandBeforeTime, also has a stereotypical British alter ego, Topsy Hornington.
* RaceAgainstTheClock: Eon8. Subverted by the fact that the countdown was not stopped, but it turned out to all be a hoax and nothing happened. [[http://posteon8breakthrough.ytmnd.com/ Or did it?]]
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Baron Lasers [[NegativeContinuity (although he's occasionally portrayed as heroic, neutral, or just eccentric)]]
* SensoryAbuse: Shock sites are quite common, with the most common tactic being [[EarRape amplified and distorted sound]].
* SitcomArchNemesis: Ebaum's World; many [=YTMNDers=] [[InternetCounterattack declared war]] on the aforementioned webpage over a Lindsay Lohan picture they stole.
* StylisticSuck: The "Age 9" and "CrapTMND" fads. The "Heh" spinoff of [=PTKFGS=] also tended to dip into this.
* SyntheticVoiceActor: Used in several fads such as Moon Man and TTSTMND
* TeensAreMonsters: The [=FaggotPSA=] gang
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: "The end of our World" minifad which showed several situations as to how this could happen (some more realistic than others)
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: [[http://khanspoiler.ytmnd.com/ This site]]
* ThoseTwoGuys: Lcadwallader and dunsparce/abomstar
* TimeTravelTenseTrouble: Invoked in the comments here: http://ytmnd.com/sites/932943/profile
* [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Trademark Favorite Booze]]: Max once attributed a mishap that made the site lose a bunch of [=YTMNDs=]/votes/comments to him getting drunk off Grey Goose vodka. The site quickly started associating it with Max, and and bottles of it would always show up whenever he was mentioned or depicted in a YTMND.
* TradeSnark: Popularized by the user Murdarmachene.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible[=/=]Offensive: Invoked by the troll "hivemindedindividuals", whose [=YTMNDs=] were artistic montages of [[ShockSite shock pictures, such as gore, beheadings, naked corpses]], et cetera, and would make bizarre, glitchy Dali-like statements in the comments. Despite all the annoyance towards him, he managed to make front page somewhat regularly.
* VampireVannabe: [[IFeelSick Eric the Vampire]]
* VillainProtagonist: Moon Man, in many of his sites
** Though in some stories, like Moon Man Versus The Bleeders, tends to be more like an AntiHero.
* VillainsActHeroesReact: The reason that so much garbage lingers on the main page nowadays is that there aren't enough users who even care anymore.
* WeDidntStartTheBillyJoelParodies: It's got one, entitled "[[http://wdstw.ytmnd.com/ We Didn't Start the Website]]", counting off all the various fads.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: The Medieval fad of turning other fads into the Bayeux Tapestry.
