I Was Working On My Own Anti-Arrow-to-the-Knee Vid Too, But Then I ...

YouTube's PsychicPebbles is extremely sick and tired of Skyrim's "arrow to the knee" meme, and composed this salute to all who dared to ever think it was funny. It's extremely loud (especially when it breaks in with FUS RO DAH) and it's extremely profane — in fact, I recommend turning your speakers down to one tick above mute. But for those sick to death of over-flogged played-out jokes, it is oh, so satisfying.

    i use to take an arrow to the knee but then i took an arrow to the knee.

    i used to make funnies on the internet... then i got a life

      and yet you're commenting on kotaku about an arrow to the knee article

      Sure you did commander Shepard.

    I used to make arrow in the knee jokes, but then I started growing fur out my ears.

    I used to type normal sentences uninfluenced by memes, but then I... oh wait I still do.

    Personally, I never really found it funny. When I first heard it in game, I actually felt sympathy for the poor guard. To be honest, I found "Hail summoner! Conjure me up a warm bed, would you?" a lot funnier!

    Memes are why i hate the internet and the one of the many reasons i hate the human race

      Yep, +1.

      Please feel free to leave.

      ..... the human race.

    I used to try think up of witty ways to try say that I hated 'arrow in the knee' jokes but then I realized in doing so I would only be contributing to the overall meme, so I went back in time to delete this comment but encountered a paradox, if I had deleted this comment in the future then I would have never wrote about deleting the comment in the first place.

    i treid to take an arrow to the knee but my friends who would do it, but i did take an arrow to the foot

    I was threatening to murder people over this meme before it was cool.

      We really need an edit button. This comment isn't near as amusing as it could have been.

      Not that I feel any less inclined to evicerate anyone who perpetuates what is the most obnoxious meme we've had in quite a while, I'd just prefer to do it in a wittier fashion.

        We really do need an edit button. +1

    I find it interesting that we can, as a culture, discover a joke, have fun with it, and then run it into the ground in a matter of weeks.

    Some may call this joke junk. Me, I call them treasures.

      Lol. Gold.

    People don't seem to understand that this meme needs to die horribly. It's worse than frigging bronies. No, you can't even use it "ironically" or in a self-aware meta-meme sense. That doesn't show your intelligence, it just means your a wordier version of the other "shit-smeared mongoloids."

    I don't know where all the hate for this meme comes from. I think many people are just jumping on the bandwagon.

    I used to be on the bandwagon but then I became an adventurer.


    ..Nope, not funny. This joke is dead.
