Of course it would have to be worst meme to come out of 4chan/reddit/whereever.

I'm all for crowdsourcing though.

The doge meme is a lot better when people aren't totally lazy and use more than just "such ____", "much _____", and the like.

Doge is unfortunately a victim of it's own users, Much like many memes that have come and gone. People get too lazy and uninspired with the source material, and pump out garbage. There's a general rule that if you put effort into something, it comes out better.

The best part of that is that one of the other people quoted in the article goes by the name "Jeremy Methfield" but they refused to post his user name with his quote Laughing

It's a lazy and uninspired meme to begin with. Which makes it amusing that both of the paintjobs I've seen for it (Scott's and another one) actually had quite a bit of thought put into them.

Not that I'm complaining that there'd be more eye candy on track -- we need more of that anyways...

Honestly, I'm giggling at the though of Mike Joy or Larry McReynolds explaining Dogecoin to viewers during practice.

Darrell Waltrip explaining it would be even better.

Or maybe Mikey can explain it when he does the gridwalk during the pre-race

I expect that whoever announces the race will pronounce it as "Dog-e-coin".

One of the donators here.
Long story short, a joke on reddit turned into the greatest thing our little community (roughly 8000 members) has done since we donated $1800 to the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. Thanks to all.

All I have to say about this is that I hope the team actually decides to use Scott Bate's scheme for the race. This should really be interesting how things play out when Talladega comes around. I know we've had the whole Ricky Bobby/Cole Trickle thing with Kurt Busch, but this doge meme sponsorship deal takes this to another level of hilarity. Laughing

Josh Wise is doing an AMA on reddit tomorrow.

This is an actual thing that's happening.

I'm incredibly confused, but also incredibly happy.

Since Reddit is doing a paintjob contest, I figured I would submit my own on the offshot that it might be decent. Still think Scott's is much better, but hey, can't knock me for trying Razz #shamelessplug

But Scott is like any old-school artist and puts his signature in the bottom corner of the picture. Very Happy

To be fair, we also don't know who did the white and gold Dogecoin car, either.

There were multiple paint contest threads and I didn't see the official one until after the deadline. Anyways, congrats to the winner, although I personally am not a huge fan of that one.

Dogecoin will now also be the sponsor for the All-Star weekend as well, for free. In exchange, the team has asked the Reddit users to get Josh into the main race using the fan vote.

Two things I found interesting about this: The writer seems to have forgotten about the Doge sponsorship, and BK charges twice as much for sponsorship as PPR.

Possibly because Dogecoin is a competitor to Bitcoin?
