I Like This Meme

I just noticed that in the YouTube comments for the Freakazoid! cartoon "Candle Jack" (Paul Rugg at his craziest as a performer and writer), there's a months-old meme where commenters discover that Candle Jack is real and are cut off in mid-word.

You know: "I'm tired of this Candle Jack meme, I said Candle Jack and nothing hap"... That kind of thing. Nice to see that a quickly-cancelled cult cartoon can inspire a pointless comments-section game.
