Star quarterback Jameis Winston was suspended for half a game this week for shouting "Fuck her right in the pussy" around FSU's campus. There are probably think pieces or at least pointed tweets to write about how Winston caught more punishment for this than some of his other alleged misdeeds. Those have, will, and should be made, but instead we're just going to talk about memes.
Because Winston chose the worst meme from this summer to get suspended for.
In case you're not up to date on Internet memes (AKA under the age of 24), the "fuck her right in the pussy" meme took off this summer when video of a guy interrupting a local news reporter who was supposedly live on air to yell "fuck her right in the pussy" into her mic. As it turns out the whole thing was staged, but that didn't stop it from gaining popularity on YouTube and Vine.
If Winston really feels the need to yell or act out random, semi-current internet ephemera from the top of his lungs in the middle of campus, here are some things that wouldn't get him suspended and would probably be funnier.
