The Latest Insult

The latest insult on the interwebs, just in time for the holiday season!

The easy version: GIYF---"Google is your friend!"

The smackdown version: LMGTFY--- "Let me google that for you!"
fill in the search field in this URL:

Suppose someone in comments says, "Neil Young! Who is Neil Young?" You would say, condescendingly, "GIYF!" (In other words, the doofus should use Google, not use you as a research assistant.)

But you could also just give them," (TRY IT!)

The implied insult is even clearer, and LOTS more fun. Try it at Christmas parties. Family members LOVE being condescended to by a geek!

Dude: you have been using the pre-google version of this on me for decades now!

...that looked familiar; and yes, I did tip angus to it on september 2. :) figured you guys would get a kick out of it.

And Angus likely posted on it! We "scoop" each other pretty often that way.

It was new to ME, I'm sayin'.
