    Most of the things on the 2011 Trends list are things that should immediately disappear. Yikes.

    From the 2011 Trends that Should Never Die article:

    “jessica simpson making shoes. dude, the girl has like, 500 billion dollars, so she just buys million dollar shoes and copies them and sells thwem (sic) to us at macy’s for 60 bucks. me lieky (sic).”

    I can’t believe you’d link to an article that actually uses “me likey” (incorrectly spelled btw!)
