We've all heard Scandal and Patty Smyth's hit 80's jam "The Warrior," featuring one of the most distinctive "Bang, bangs!" in music history.


Just in case you've forgotten what it sounds like:

Comedian Patton Oswalt must have spent some of his Valentine's day jamming out to the song, because he celebrated the year's most romantic day by starting a new meme!


The rules of the meme are simple. Instead of "Bang bang," Twitter users are substituting...well, pretty much anything.



The meme took on a life of its own—long after Oswalt stopped tweeting, his fans continued the legacy he began.



It's hard to explain why this meme works so well...but it really does.



When humanity is dead and gone, hopefully a future civilization finds this meme to explain what we're really about.



The meme has undergone numerous evolutions.



For those who've fallen behind on the news of the day, this meme is the most important thing you need to cover.

There's nothing quite like a good urban legend to put a chill into your bones. One of my favorites? The story about the babysitter and the man upstairs. You know the one. The creepy phone calls begin. The words, "Have you checked on the children?" Unnerving stuff. It's that story that gave us movies like Black Christmas and When a Stranger Calls. I still get a chill up my spine when I think about that story.

It's not just murderers either. Monsters, spirits... Urban legends––and folklore as a whole––have for time immemorial been a part of our consciousness.

After Redditor BeardedDragonzRMine asked the online community, "What monster/urban legend is in your town?" people shared their stories.
