ALERT: THIS IS A FORCED MEME
WHEN I WAS will be posted by the same
unfunny newfag until you like it.


WHEN I WAS is inarguably the gayest forced meme in existence, and moar of the cancer that is killing /b/ - and we're talking about a place where pictures of Kirk Johnson spreading his asshole are passé and dickgirls occasionally dominate. If you see a picture of Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance with the words "WHEN I WAS", launch the sage bombs at full force. "Why is this guy blonde?" you might ask. Well, he read My Immortal and the teenager who wrote it scared the black hair dye off of his head. Draco Malformed, No longer, Gerard way has dyed his hair a gay color of pink(as if there was a non-gay color of pink which you can dye your hair) for his new album. The fact that the mods formerly did not ban anyone involved with this shit was once taken as evidence that the Cancer finally killed /b/. Thankfully, it is finally bannable.

WHEN I WAS can also be used in place of a Bel-Air. Start telling a first person, incestual CP story, posting it as slowly as possible whilst still avoiding your thread being 404'd and then right as it gets to you sticking it in her pooper/vagoo, have her scream/say/moan: "WHEN I WAS".

On the incredibly rare occasions that this meme produces any kind of lulz it only comes from it aping on the successes of other memes or from the trolling opportunities it provides to shame newfags.

This meme can be blocked with rapid application of A YOUNG WARTHOG.

If the thread has progressed on to A YOUNG BOY, use of "I played the silver ball" also works.

Origin

Rumors on the internets suggest that the first sightings of this forced meme date back to March 2007. Since then several variations of it have been spammed over and over again on /b/. Spinoffs include the thread starting with 'WE'RE NO STRANGERS TO LOVE', 'ON A DARK DESERT HIGHWAY', 'I HEARD THAT YOU WERE TALKING SHIT AND YOU DIDN'T THINK THAT I WOULD HEAR IT', and various other shitty songs everyone hates.

DEATH

WHEN I WAS died, along with Gerard Way, on November 27th, 2007.

Lyrics

WHEN I WAS

A YOUNG BOY

MY FATHER

TOOK ME INTO THE CITY

TO SEE A MARCHING BAND

HE SAID, "SON, WHEN YOU GROW UP

WOULD YOU BE

THE SAVIOR OF THE BROKEN

THE BEATEN AND THE DAMNED?"

HE SAID, "WILL YOU DEFEAT THEM?

YOUR DEMONS AND ALL THE NON-BELIEVERS

THE PLANS THAT THEY HAVE MADE

BECAUSE ONE DAY

I'LL LEAVE YOU

A PHANTOM TO LEAD YOU IN THE SUMMER

TO JOIN THE BLACK PARADE."

NOTE: Do not EVAR expect a WHEN I WAS topic to ever make it past "MY FATHER"*


What the Song Really Means

WHEN I WAS

A YOUNG FUR

BIG DADDY

TOOK ME INTO THE CITY

TO SEE A FURFAG BAND

HE SAID, "BOY WHEN YOU GROW UP

WILL YOU BE THE LEADER OF THE BAND

IN SEQUINS AND IN DRAG?"

HE SAID, "WILL YOU BEAT THEM

AND RAPE THEM

AND ALL THE NORMAL FOLK

THE PLANS THAT THEY HAVE MADE

TO IGNORE YOU

AND LEAVE YOU

UNTIL YOU GROW SOME FREAKEN BALLS

TO JOIN THE PRIDE PARADE!?

TL;DR OP is a faggot



This is what you see when you die and go somewhere worse than Hell


Alternate Interpretation

WHEN I WAS

A YOUNG BOY

MY FATHER

TOOK ME INTO THE CELLAR

AND FUCKED ME IN THE ASS

HE SAID, "CAMERON, IF YOU SCREAM OR

CALL FOR HELP

OR RUN AWAY WELL JUST TRY IT

NOW HERE IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN

HE SAID, "I'LL CHOP OFF YOUR PINGAS

AND FEED IT TO THE WILD ANIMALS

AND THEN CUT OFF YOUR HEAD

AND THEN ONE DAY

I'LL MARCH THROUGH

THE STREETS NAKED WITH YOUR HEAD ON A STAKE

LIKE A BIG GREAT PARADE."

When I was a young girl I used to see pleasure


When I was a young girl I used to drink ale
Out of the ale house, down into the jail house
My body salve-aided and Hell is my doom


Come mama come papa and sit you down by me
Come sit you down by me and pity my case
My poor head is aching my sad heart is breaking
My body salve-aided and Hell is my doom


Please send for the preacher to come and pray for me
And send for the doctor to heal all my wounds
My poor head is aching my sad heart is breaking
My body salve-aided and I'm bound to die


I want three young ladies to bear up my coffin
I want three young ladies to take me along
I want them to carry a bunch of wild roses
To put on my body as I pass along


One morning, one morning, one morning in May,
I saw this young lady all wrapped in white linen
All wrapped in white linen
and cold as the plague
 


 

—Feist; LOL

Special Version

When I was A boy of ten


I had a very best friend
Fred was kind with good intent
but just a little different


Oh, Special Fred
mama dropped him on his head
now he's not so bright instead
he's a little bit special
just a little bit


one day, talking to special fred,
he grabbed a brick and he swung at my head
and as he laughed at me that's when I knew
special fred just made me special to!


Now I laugh as I count bugs
I give strangers great big hugs
next to me, fred is fine
yeah, he's a fuckin Einstein
ooh special fred,
now we're not right in the head
now we're not so bright instead
we're a little bit special


just a little bit


Nigra Version

When Ah wuz a itty bitty li'l kid


Mah moms wud rokk me in da cradle
In dem ol' cotton fields back home
It wuz down in tha South
Just down in tha South
In dem ol' cotton fields back home
When dem cotton balls get rotten
A nigga can't pick no cotton
In dem ol' cotton fields back home
I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there


To sit on my throne, as the prince of Bel Air


YouTube Poop Version

When I was a young BOI,


My father took me into HELL
To see a marching b&
He said, "MAH BOI, when you grow up,
Will you be the savior of Batty, Gay Luigi, and YOSHI?"
He said, "Will you defeat them,
Bowser, and all Massacration,
The spaghetti they have made?
Because one day I'll leave you,
A PhD in kicking your ass to lead you in the Mushroom Kingdom,
To join the Y.M.C.A."
STOP! HAMMER TIME!
When I was a YOUNG MAN,
My father took me into the city,
To see IRON MAN,
He said "Son, when you grow up,
Will you be the devourer of all life?"



Maple Story Version

When I was


a beginner,
A Faggot took me into Henesys
He said, "bowguy1538, when you level up,
Will you be the savior of Kerning?"
He said,
"Will you, Strafe them,
King Slime, and all Pink Bean,
The Beanlets they have made?
Because
one day, You'll get fourth job,
A Blue Metus, to load you in the CPQ?,
To join
the Windians,
(Intermission)
When I was,
level 69,
A Faggot took me into Henesys,
To see Fangblade,
He said "bowguy1538, when you level up,


Will you be a ranger?


Batshit Insane Version

When I was a young cockgoblin


My father took me into Växjö City
To see a marching band
He said, "Mah boi, when you grow up,
Will you be the rapper of the Pixie,
The rock god, and the hearses?"
I said, "lol wut"
Then he said "Will you defeat them,
Verina De La Hyde and Vin Diesel,
The Polearm Skill they have cogitated?
Because one day, I'll leave you a Dragtaur
To lead you at Hogwarts


To join the Wanker parade!"
