Charlie Sheen has given us a plethora of gifts. He’s entertained us. He’s distracted us from the world falling apart around us in Wisconsin, Libya and Japan. He’s lifted our blog traffic. Thank you, Charlie.
But Charlie giveth and Charlie taketh. He’s been spouting catchphrases both natural and forced since this whole mess began, with “Winning!” being the simplest, best and most pervasive. I’ll admit it was a fun little gag for a couple days, to use “Winning!” in places both appropriate and inappropriate. “My 2:00 meeting was cancelled. Winning!” Ho ho ho. Droll.
But like many catchphrases, it’s worn out it’s welcome quickly, helped into obsolescence by overuse. And nothing kills the comedy golden goose more quickly than Twitter.
In that spirit, the 20 most insufferable, douchey, unfunny uses of the #Winning hashtag.
