What are you looking at, bitch? You reading this Meme Of The Week or something? You think you're better than me? What, you too good to also share and like this for Facebook? You can't retweet this? Come at me bro, or brosephina, whichever's the case.

Two seasons ago on Jersey Shore, you may remember seeing Ronnie, The Bear Guido, fighting a gentleman on the boardwalk after a hearty bull session regarding masculinity. During the course of the run-up to the fight, Ronnie exclaims repeatedly to his opponent, "Come at me, bro."

Of course, this phrase caught on as a meme online, and began gathering steam, with innumerable permutations of the catchphrase making the rounds. Interestingly enough, I have never heard anyone utter those words in anger. But then again, I don't bareknuckle brawl in Pearland anymore for tattoo money.

Here's a few of the best of the Come At Me Bro, including a few I made on my own. Yes, I get paid for this. In hugs.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
