The guys of Shit Girls Say have been building up an arsenal of phrases for us ladies to nod along with and say “I totally say that!! That’s sooo me.” Episode four, created by Canadian writers Kyle Humphrey and Graydon Sheppard, features go-tos like “I keep thinking today’s Tuesday” and “I’m sorry, do I know you?”
Don’t forget, the guys will have a book on shelves this October, aptly called Shit Girls Say. You can start pre-ordering it online now.
There’s a certain person in this office who shall remain unnamed (Casey, it’s definitely Casey) who really appreciates the Nyan Cat. So if he indeed plans to blast Nyan Cat in celebration of its winning meme of the year, I will most certainly be cowering under the table with industrial headphones.
I learned the hard way the first time round, that the Pop Tart cat sings the most annoyingly catchy song in the WORLD.
As I said, that little cat — that came from nothing and went so far — won Meme of the Year at The Webby Awards last night, which is basically like the Oscars here at andPOP. The cat beat out Michelle Bachmann eyes, Texts from Hillary (Clinton) and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
One of my personal faves, Shit Girls Say, got major kudos too as Juliette Lewis and Graydon Sheppard were named best actresses for the YouTube series. Instead of yawn-worthy, drawn out novels, the winner’s speeches were all five words or less. Lewis and Sheppard kept their simple, with an edge of mystery, as they said: ”We just want to thank …” and left the stage.
There were many Ryan Gosling wins and mentions. An unidentified rep for Pinterest (which won the Webby for social media) accepted by saying: “Pinterest loves you, Ryan Gosling!” Since, hey girl, everyone obvs loves to pin Gosling. Funny or Die also scored a Webby for its Drunk History of Christmas, which starred Gosling, Jim Carrey and Gosling’s girlfriend Eva Mendes.

This meme has proven it’s staying power with nearly a full month of Shit various people say. By now, virtually every nationality and sexual orientation has been lampooned in just under two minutes on youtube. Shit Girls Say has trended on twitter and it’s been shared on millions of Facebook pages, yet it seems the world is still craving more.
In fact, it’s so widely popular that people are starting to parody what is being said about the videos. This particular video is appropriately titled “Shit Girls Say, About Shit Girls Say” and features two incredibly masculine gentleman making fun of the meme.
Which begs the question: is this fad ready to die? Or is it just getting started?
Today, we discovered the latest iteration of Shit Girls Say called “Shit Nobody Says” (that’s a lot of ‘shit’s in one sentence!).
Long time friends Tyler and Tripp jumped on the “Shit” bandwagon and thought up some hilarious and accurate things nobody would ever say.
“I’ve never seen this Ikea furniture in anyone else’s apartment!”
“I have too much money!”
“Can I borrow your Nickelback CD?” is my favourite.
The only statement I have a problem with is: “I could totally go for a filet-o-fish right now”. I say that all the time, therefore it should not be included in Shit Nobody Says.
Since “Shit Girls Say” flooded the internet last month, a ton of spoofs were uploaded on YouTube: “Shit Black Girls Say”, “Shit Gay Guy Say”, and now, “Shit Single Girls Say”.
Written and directed by Jenn Hovick, Brittany Ludwig and Derrick Cole, Derrick sports a long red wig and acts out a bunch of scenarios single girls would find themselves in.
He delivers such lines as “what’s wrong with a fairytale wedding?” and “Liz Lemon is my hero!”
This video does shed some truth as what goes inside the head of a single lady. We most certainly do gush about Ryan Gosling and complain about the guys we meet in bars. And we do say the words “so” “like” and “bang” more than the average girl.
The only thing that’s really questionable is how Derrick believes all single girls say “I like being single, it’s fun”. That’s always a toss-up, if you ask me.
Once Shit Girls Say went viral, everyone suspected a bunch of spoofs to be made and spread around the internet.
In Shit Black Girls Say, actor Billy Sorrells does the same thing Graydon Sheppard did in the original, which is to dress up like a girl and say ridiculous things.
Apparently, Billy thinks black women talk a lot about the show “Basketball Wives” when they hang out in salons or bars. They also eat a lot of Cheetos and complain about the volume being too loud. Billy may be stereotyping black women (in character, Billy cries while watching “The Colour Purple”) but there might be some truth to the way he believes women behave.
What do you girls think of Shit Black Girls Say? Is it funny or offensive?
It seems like only yesterday the first episode of the viral sensation Shit Girls Say was released into cyberspace.
Graydon Sheppard puts on that brown wig and red lipstick again to give us something more laugh about by the water cooler this work week. This episode of Shit Girls Say features more food talk than ever before.
“I feel like getting a hot dog” is among the many ridiculous things girls say all the time. Also, girls like to ask about humus a lot and complain about yogurt tasting funny. As a woman myself, I can vouch for the hot dog cravings, for sure. The yogurt? Not so much.
“I love wine!” is probably the most accurate of them all. Name me one girl that doesn’t drink wine, I dare you.
The montage ends with “I can’t believe I ate all that!” which I’m sure we all at the end of a full-blown meal at Jack Astor’s, or anywhere else, really.
Watch the second episode and prepare to laugh your socks off – just make sure you don’t have any food in your mouth.
It first started with a Twitter account, and now there’s an official video poking fun at the way girls communicate. Shit Girls Say was started by Graydon Sheppard and Kyle Humphrey. Graydon also appears as a girl in the video, alongside actress and musician Juliette Lewis.
As a girl, I can safely say the video is a fair representation of the shit we say. We DO complain about nearly everything, all the time, and we DO expect everyone to listen to us when we talk about mundane things.
“Can you fix my computer?” is often heard at work or at school. We don’t really know much about computers other than checking email and updating Facebook statuses.
“Could you not do that please?” is vocalized a lot on public buses, food courts, libraries and even churches.
“I had to get up at like, seven in the morning!” is said a lot, specifically around 1 a.m. as we proceed to get shit-fasted at the local bar.
“Wait…did I lock the door?…..Yes, I did!” Forgetting to lock our door or turning off the curling iron are things we tend to forget the most. The Fire Dept. can attest to that.
“Shut up!” is what we say when you actually want you to keep on spilling the beans on that slutty girl on campus.
“AHHHHHWEUIHIURHTEEHEEHEEHEEYAYYAYAYAY!” is our way of greeting one another. Deal with it.
“I’m like, not even joking right now” is code for we’re totally joking. I’m not even joking.
