54 More of the Best Catchphrases of the Decade, Reader Edition

by 9 years ago

[inline:hangover]Last week we weighed in with our “50 Best Catch Phrases of the Decade.” At the end of the piece, we asked you to weigh in with your suggestions for the list. The response from our readers in the comments was incredible. Based on your recommendations, we decided to compile another “end of the decade” retrospective with 54 more quotable catch phrases from 2000 through 2009. We’ve also peppered the list with a few exceptional one-liners that were originally scrapped from the final screed. Go grab a snack and a beer and give yourself about an hour to watch, laugh, reminisce, and relive all your favorite. Because this listicle is stretched out over five pages, save your comments and airing of grievances for the end.

Final Note: We’ve divided these quotes into different categories, and you really shouldn’t read too much into their order. Also, we probably haven’t mined the full possibilities of catch phases from music and viral videos, so if there are any obvious ones that we missed (likely), leave them in the comments.
