Illustration for article titled ‘Douchey Boyfriend’ Is the Internet’s Immediate Answer to ‘Overly Attached Girlfriend’

Some readers noted Friday that the reason the "Overly Attached Girlfriend" gets a meme but the "Overly Attached Boyfriend" doesn't might have something do with the fact that the overly attached boyfriend meme has been forever rendered unfunny by Mark Wahlberg's chest-thumping performance in Fear. The internets, however, had to answer "Overly Attached Girlfriend" somehow, and they did it with "Douchey Boyfriend" (something some other readers immediately pointed out). Does "Douchey Boyfriend" bring the funny harder than "Overly Attached Girlfriend," or has the great meme-generating hive mind of the internet skirted an opportunity to make a Fear roller coaster-scene meme?

The popped collar...oh, GOD, the popped collar. Worst. Look. Ever. I went to middle and high school with a bunch of guys who did this, and it took So. Much. Effort. for me not to turn them down correctly. IT LOOKS STUPID. IT IS NOT SEXY. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRESS YOURSELF.

Fortunately, most of the guys I know at college are lovely, vaguely arty film guys who wouldn't dream of doing something so gauchely preppy. Thank God,
