Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, we will definitely not talk about dicks and other things we cannot unsee.

The internet was abuzz this week with Dong Talk™. If you missed the flurry around Donald Trump and Toad — yes, that one — then consider yourself lucky. (Everyone else, please know I, too, am on the market for brain bleach. I will report back ASAP.)

Not to be outdone by the rest of 2018’s baffling news cycle, DC jumped in with an unsolicited picture of Batman’s dick. The full-frontal comes to us courtesy of Batman: Damned #1, the first in a new limited series about the coc — *chokes* CAPED crusader.

No, I will not help you find pictures of it.


And now for something good, pure, and not about the quality of Red Dead Redemption 2’s horse testicles. (Really sensing a theme this week.) There is an abundance of dancing Eevee content this week, just in time to soothe your troubled soul. We’re used to seeing Pikachu on this hype circuit, so it’s nice to know Eevee is living life to the fullest to celebrate its new mascot status.

Last I checked, that chicken was not a Pokémon. Maybe it will soon join the fantasy ranks of key rings and trash bags.

A 2012 nonsense tweet from Lady Gaga returned from the dead as a meme. People did their best to make sense of it, but IMO it’s very simple:

Speaking of memes, do you know how much I love the musical ones? A lot. I especially love mashups, so here are two gems for you to watch on repeat, courtesy of Twitter. First, LMFAO meets Evangelion:

But definitely don’t sleep on this mix of the Spider-Man 3’s iconic dance routine and Lil Pump’s “I Love It.”

The queen of creepy internet, ReignBot, released a new video exploring AshVlogs. ReignBot goes deep on the apparent disappearance of Ash, as well as the chilling clues that hint at foul play. I kept the lights on while I watched, FYI.

One last Public Service Announcement: Don’t forget that it’s National Earth, Wind & Fire day, a very official and real holiday. Avoid the Taylor Swift cover at all costs. Celebrate the classic viral video instead.
