:::::Some of us aren't exactly pop-culture and Internet savvy. Some of us don't spend our lives trolling on Twitter, YouTube and in obscure webcomic dens, or binge-watching every modern TV show that comes down the pike. (I think Homestar Runner has introduced me to more pop culture than I would ever encounter on my own). But I do think there's a difference between a Sighting, and say, Fanstuff. Or people who don't make their own content borrow someone else's pop culture and reference that instead. With the Internet, it's really, really easy to research pop culture references these days. Or some of them might be second-generation, where they use a phrase they might have heard elsewhere and didn't know where it was from, but thought it sounded cool. Homestar Runner cartoons have been corrupting the English language with new words and idiomatic phrases since 2002. -- [[Special:Contributions/68.37.43.131|68.37.43.131]] 00:58, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
