Where os the third one? And don't tell me its dogs playing poker because that a hit hit the public pre-Internet, bitches.



The third one is Riker's face palm, the forth is the twist on Picard's "there are four lights!" (yes, I'm a ST:TNG nerd)

Haha, TNG fans are will freak out over this one! (including me)
For those wondering where the "four aces" thing comes from... it's a classic Next Generation episode. Picard is captured and tortured. His interrogator tries to break him, starting with getting Picard to say he sees five lights, when the are only four right in front of him.

Love the inclusion of Four Aces, and two of the other characters make sense in that scene but I do not get the whole 'It's a Trap!' quote. I know it's the quote but it doesn't make sense to have it in this scene.

I'm impressed with the O.A.R. reference in the description. "Crazy Game of Poker"

Maybe he thinks Picard is bluffing.

Me too. Not a raging Star Trek fan, per se (which is amazing, considering my name came from TOS), and I don't get either Riker or Picard's memes, but dude. RAGING GEEKERY. I can't pass that up.

Apparently so. Maybe I should get around to submitting a Nintendo/Vader mashup I've had rattling around my head for a few years as a daily. It's bound to do well if your Vader claim is accurate.

Gotta love the internet nerds arguing about whether all four of these qualify as "memes". Love Star Wars, and absolutely love Trek, and I cant see how anyone could possibly pull this shirt off. This just screams uber nerd.

I didn't catch the four aces meme, so I asked a friend.

Picard is being tortured by a Cardassian and he's trying to break his will. There is a set of three or five lights behind him that he turns on and they shine on Picards face. Through the interrogation he says the suffering will end if Picard simply states, "There are five lights (instead of the four there)."

And Picard keeps saying, "THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS!"

Completely Amoeba Sized Inside Joke or not....when does anyone playing poker ever say "there are four aces".....?

Could have been a classic shirt, but the horrible wording makes it a no buy.....

In for one simply because of the "There are FOUR aces".

I was once in vegas for a major conference and had a tech check/dress rehersal the day before my 8 minute on-stage demo. I walked out on stage in front a room set up to seat 2000+, and there were only tech folks hanging around. I looked up and was blinded by stage lights.

I looked out at the empty room and very clearly said "There are FOUR lights".

One camera guy in the middle of the room nearly fell out of his chair laughing. The rest of them? Completely confused.

Three out of four rate on Know Your Meme:


"There are four lights" would probably fit under the "Jean-Luc Picard" meme.

yeah, I'm with everyone else on the "four aces(lights) is not a meme" and that "Noooooooooo" is not a meme. it's funny, but it's not a meme.

NOOOOOOO is kinda a meme since the Chinese subtitle version had the English say "OH GOD, THEY CAN SEE ME!".

Facepalm is there.

IT'S A TRAP is there.



I was going to reply to your post and tell you that you were wrong, the chinese subtitle version says "OH GOD, THEY CAN SEE ME!", not "OH GOD, THEY CAN SEE ME!"... but when I hit reply, it says "OH GOD, THEY CAN SEE ME!" in your message. what is going on around here?!

so woot replaces tired internet phrases with other things to be funny. it gets a bit meta sometimes.
