YOLO (You Only Live Once) also known as YOLOISM is an acronym and a dangerous cult designed by Drake✡, a half white nigger rapper, originally intended to sell a mixtape to angsty teenagers looking for an excuse to be whores and spend their parents' money on lots of drugs. The phrase has since been adopted in a manner somewhat akin to Swag by overly impressionable youths and online attention whores. The term is most commonly utilized as a detached addendum to any statement detailing ill-advised, reckless or self-perceived "crazy" behavior. It is also a saying that reeks of unfunny. People say it after every accomplishment they make.
In the grand old summer of 1992, when the world was in a somewhat peaceful slumber, teen Disney heartthrob, Drake Bell was minding his own business, racking up some lines of charlie, completely unaware of the fact that he was inadvertently about to cause a massive shitstorm. Suddenly, paparazzi, violating a respectable celebrity's right to privacy! Subsequently, what was once a peaceful planet, was pissed off beyond belief at the fact that their beloved child star had turned to substance abuse, because rich and famous people had never previously been linked to such lewd behavior.
Enter Officer Ricky
Drake did the only thing he could think to do, and called his good friend, Officer Ricky, a well-known authority on all things legal, who had previously helped Justin Bieber through the crapflood of litigation known only as "United States of Teenage Girls vs. Justin Bieber". Realizing that the Bitches Don't Know and So Cash defenses had been widely overused and rendered obsolete in legal settings in previous years, the dynamic duo knew that they had to coin a new phrase; Something so catchy, so universally applicable, and above all, so unbelievably retarded, that it would get them out of trouble for years to come.
After several failed attempts at coining a phrase that would be universally accepted by judges, lawyers, and individuals in persistent vegetative states alike, and several incredibly hardcore hits of meth, they'd finally discovered a phrase so depraved, so unoriginal, so doused in incredible faggotry, that it HAD to succeed in becoming a catchphrase for single celled organisms everywhere. That phrase was, obviously:
Drake, of course, went on to beat the case as litigators dramatically turned into dribbling vegetables, losing copious IQ points upon hearing the autistic cries of "YOLO!" from teens worldwide. It has since been formally adopted as the motto of depraved idiots, young or old, the world over, and is frequently used as an excuse whenever somebody wants to do something incomprehensibly stupid. Fortunately, due to said incomprehensibly stupid actions, YOLOers tend to have a fairly short life expectancy. Unfortunately, this natural selection process doesn't work fast enough.
