@1) That's such a good one. I wish I'd added it.

I, for one, am completely done with the internet's obsession with bacon. I never need to hear about bacon again as long as I live.

I'd add elaborate wedding proposal videos and mass lip sync videos to the list.

I was unaware my sexuality could be "played out". Ouch dude. My vote is for heterosexuals.

Flash-mobs were officially no longer cool when one was featured in an ABC sitcom ("Manny Get Your Gun" episode of Modern Family).

should you all be speaking so ill of mustaches during the month of Movember?
yes, they are itchy and kind of silly, but damn don't they look pretty darn good on men?

I don't live in Seattle, but some of these haven't been enough of a thing, either yet or anymore, to be played out. I don't know any pit bull haters except the ones I see on Slog. Ironic racism and mustaches are gross, but neither is really a thing where I am (IRL and online). Bacon is so over, it's too late to call it over. Zombies weren't played out until about the end of last year (unlike vampires, which were over at least five years ago). I still like them, but they're played out. So that was my vote.

Hating Seattle's Mayor.

Either that or Zombie Cats eating pit-bull flash mobs.

Kind of a tie.

1-7 on the list are all over for me, if they even ever began, (which mostly they didn't). ryan gosling and bisexuals can stay.

I'm not over "ironic racism" as much as hearing about it. It seems to be a phantom meanace to keep white guilt alive. I can hear hate speech spewed towards gays, women, Asians, Jews, and blacks in rap, hip hop, from our President's spiritual advisor, Patricia Mcallister at OWS LA, and Democratic incumbent Marion Barry vowing to rid his district of "dirty Asians" during his reelection speech. Louis Farrakhan did a college tour this year, including stops at UC Berkeley and Howard U, with not a peep of outrage by "anti-racist activists" even though he spewed anti-Asian and anti-Jewish hate speech and sold his modern Protocols of Zion on campus. Everyone acts like this in-your-face hate speech and attitudes by African Americans, some of them powerful, is a harmless mirage but it only takes a rumor of some 20 year old hipster making an insensitive comment about a black person to cause a shitstorm of outrage.

The only reason I voted for mustaches was "fedoras" wasn't an option.

Wouldn't it be a sad day if bisexuals were over? That would destroy like most sexual fantasies, counting turning straights and threesomes with more than one gender.

Can I change my vote from mustaches to Michael Jackson Thriller Zombie Dance. Especially annoying when every damn time some group of urban zombies get together and just have to dance to the piped in song.

The obsession with bacon is just as old and annoying as buffalo wings.

Who the fuck is Ryan Gosling? ..oh never mind. I don't care.

But bacon has clearly jumped the shark.

In other news: Sharkmeat is making a huge comeback!

Zombies are the dance macabre of the 21st century, except driven by the spectre of mass extinction under climate catastrophe instead of the black plague. Whether we do anything or not, over the next ten years a lot of things are going to be happening around the world that are way scarier and obvious than wimpy little Sandy. That's with the apocalyptic and millennial movements are really going to pick up steam, and zombies will be an entrenched feature of our culture as we try to make sense of the demise of the world as we know it and have always assumed it would be.
