The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[[/labelnote]] Explanation Like this.
Further mutations and successor memes, if any.
Several of the character depictions in The Last Days of FOXHOUND seem to be trying for meme status, in that characters are exaggerated to one-note, bewildering absurdity. One example is that of Psycho Mantis who in his original appearance showed something of a disdain for reproduction and possibly sex in general whereas in the comic he is shown to go as far as to run around screaming when he is told that a cup of coffee was made by a girl.
However, the comic toned-down gag characterizations once it started becoming more plotty.
Also, the Allosaurus, especially as an answer to the site's ever-changing poll questions. How far this meme has spread is impossible to track, though, since the Google results it generates are buried under a bunch of irrelevant paleontological hits.
Tycho and Gabe were not intended as Author Avatars, but so many fans assumed they were that Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik made them so, though they still don't resemble them. Most obviously, Holkins is bald and Tycho has a full head of hair; the meme comes from 4chanRemix Comics about the disparity. As for "pig-like", that's a general joke about Krahulik's face.

"Fap fap fap." Although Sexy Losers didn't invent this widespread onomatopoeia for masturbation (that would be the VIZ Media translation of the MangaHeartbroken Angels), this webcomic did introduce it to the Internet and popularize it through frequent use.
As well as the female version, "Schlick schlick schlick."

If someone had combined this with the miscarriage CAD strip, the internet might have imploded.
Nothing Nice To Say had a brief story arc that involved the comic getting taken over by two straw men of the more backwards participants in the punk scene. The resulting Stylistic Suck strips had Fletcher and Blake calling every band they could think of "selloutz!" or "gay selloutz!" and asking "amirite?" after. It caught on, especially on the comments section of punknews.org where people still follow many jokes about bands with "amirite?" (It might actually have been picked up from 4chan.)
"...everything that isn't nailed down or on fire..."explanation What a handful of pirates managed to loot from a town. Thief took the stuff that was, and the phrase is now used comparably to "everything but the kitchen sink". Stealing something that's nailed down and on fire is the mark of an Impossible Thief.
The term Rule 34 came from a little known(and now defunct) webcomic Zoom-Out which is featured on the trope page. It was actually the first of the internet rules, the rest were made several weeks after Rule 34 caught on.
> Add pumpkin meme to TV Tropes Page. What pumpkin? You are certain there has never been and will never will be a pumpkin meme in this room. Explanation Originally from Jailbreak, where a pumpkin in the jail cell just vanishes as if it was never there. Hussie used this hundreds of times in his comics since.
> Grow arms to type on keyboard so memes can be added. You already have arms, stupid! Explanation Also originally from Jailbreak, where the main character appears armless, but the comic notes that said character obviously has arms. This sometimes-armless style has carried over to Hussie's other works.

YEAH, BITCHES! Explanation In-Universe as much as out, when Rich interrupted a performance of No Exit on live national TV as Satan; on a poll on the forum as to what the last line of the comic would be, one of the options was "Rich:[Do I even need to say it?]"
