Like most things on the Internet I'm probably 5 years behind on this but the other day I discovered Xzibit memes and they're one of those things that are so purposefully stupid that I love it more than I love myself.

It's probably ruining it to explain it but to steal the story from Reddit, "An MTV show called 'Pimp My Ride' was hosted by the rapper Xzibit. The show became known for making ridiculous and mostly useless modifications to viewer's cars based on their interests. For example, one owner loved bowling so Xzibit and his crew installed a custom mini lane, automatic bowling ball washer, and a hydraulic bowling ball display stand lift in the automobile's trunk. At the end of show during the reveal, Xzibit would say something like "Yo dawg, I heard you like bowling so we put a bowling alley in your trunk so you can bowl while you drive." The bright young minds over at 4chan established the format of 'Yo dawg, I heard you like X, so we put a X in your X so you can X while you X' and paired it with a funny picture of Xzibit ... And so, a meme was born and it spread across the interwebs like herpes."

To wit:

No? OK then.
