From the beating a dead horse department...

My pal Karyne (who has red hair, so I tease her and call her Ginger) and I got on the subject of the "Don't tase me, bro!" guy. Here's a nifty remix of the pertinent part, set to a snappy beat:

Somehow, it evolved into a contest to see who could come up with as many lame parodies as possible.

It started clever enough. For us, anyway. I asked her if at some point, she'd go to Walgreen's for a candy run. She said maybe, and I replied with "Don't tease me."

Ginger: don't tease me, bro

Jeff: I want to draw of a picture of a Klingon on his knees with his hands up, while Kirk and Spock are aiming their phasers at him. "Don't phase me, bro!"

Ginger: heh

Jeff: or a college freshman: "Don't haze me, bro!"

Ginger: or a cinnamon bun: don't glaze me, bro

Jeff: i've seen that with a donut

Jeff: Someone who works for a nonprofit: Don't pays me, bro!

Ginger: or a building: don't raize me, bro

Jeff: a flower

Jeff: don't vase me, bro

I should point out that this was over the course of the day--we were actually working as well. Honest.

Then at one point, it got goofy.

Jeff: Broken video game sign: Don't plays me, bro!

Ginger: jewelry: don't appraise me, bro

Jeff: Jennifer Grey: Don't Swayze me, bro! **artistic license**

Ginger: king kong: don't fay wrays me, bro

Jeff: Ballerina: don't plies me, bro!

Jeff: Crowd to cheerleader: Don't "Ready, OKs" me, bro!

Ginger: mom to teenager: don't "anyways" me, bro

Jeff: Joint to stoner: Don't blaze me, bro!

Ginger: agent to bruce willis: don't yippee-ki-yays me, bro

Jeff: Miss Piggy to Kermit: Don't yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaays me, bro

Jeff: Dumb Donald to Fat Albert: Don't "Hey, hey, heys" me, bro!

Then somehow I managed to get all kinds of historical:

Jeff: Samuel Tilden: Don't Rutherford B. Hayes me, bro!

That's funnier if you look up Rutherford Hayes on Wikipedia or something.

Not much, but we passed funny long ago, didn't we?

After that, we got punchy.

Jeff: Edith to Archie Bunker: Don't "Those Were the Days" me, bro

Jeff: Kitten in cardboard box before being dumped in the middle of nowhere: Don't strays me, bro!

Jeff: HMS Titanic to engineers: Don't raise me, bro!

Jeff: Critic to Sandra Bullock: Don't "28 Days" me, bro

Ginger: metropolis to superman: don't up, up, and aways me, bro

How much sadder could we get?

Well, by the time I tried "Environmentalist to McDonald's in the late 1980s:
Don't Styrofoam trays me, bro!" we knew that we had officially stomped the life out of this particular meme.

Oh, except for the neat LOLcat I submitted to I Can Has Cheezburger?:

Click on it and vote the hell out of it, and I might make the main page. I should get something out of wasting this much brain power.
