famous Neil deGrasse Tyson meme sweeping the internets

Just maybe, you have seen this "Watch out, we got a badass over here!" meme. Well, NO, it's not a movie poster from one of the John Shaft action movies from the 70's... it's astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson who rumor has it, will soon be hosting a new version of Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" series, since Carl is no longer with us. Lord knows we will all be looking forward to that.

Anywho, I thought that this Neil deGrasse Tyson "Watch out, we got a badass here!" meme was so awesome, that I was inspired to make my very own Neil deGrasse Tyson "Watch out, we got a badass here!" here check it out...

  1. Did he say stars had guts? Yuck! That's like saying stars shit and fart! He's got a great voice and a talent for poetry, but I think he's confusing software with hardware.

  2. it is a bit drawn out! Brian Cox is still my hero!!!

  3. I paused Alec Empire for something that made me feel a bit nauseated. I just imagined cow guts floating around.

  4. Jimmy, is that video from something?

    I feel like I have seen it before.

    1. Well, Youngman Brown it's becoming a fairly popular viral video, you may have seen it somewhere. But it was edited by a fellow named Max Schlickenmeyer and the original source and full credits are here

  5. Wow, he may be someone who can stand on the same planet as Sagan. I actually feel a lot better now I know that the universe is inside me as well as me being inside it.

  6. Nice use of the "brilliant" imagery. It'll be stuck in my head for at least today.

  7. I've seen this guy and think that his revamp of the show might be worth watching. Not was much as reading all of the back posts of Clean Sheets and Dirty Girls, but still possibly worth watching.
