The rise and rise of the f*** yeah tumblrs
June 3, 2010 3:58 AM   Subscribe

The rise of the f*** yeah tumblrs has been noted on MeFi, but with the appearance of Is it a F*** Yeah!?, it's easier to find curious FYTs. So in addition to the obvious cats, sharks and what have you, one might happen upon modernism, Hamlet, e.e cummings, chinchillas, archeology, Romania, The Kinks, weather, and ballet.

I was a fan of F*** Yeah NYRB Classics (when it was more functional).

Is this the thread in which we can recommend our favorite FYtumblrs? Because my favorite these days is F*** Yeah! Peter Pan!

I was going all meta but someone beat me to the punch and apparently isn't even doing anything with it.

F*** no.

Nah, there is no Fuck Yeah! for stirling engines. Maybe you should make it! :)

I'm just sad that someone made Fuck Yeah, Hamlet! before I thought of it :( Also beaten to the punch on Fuck Yeah, Six Feet Under.

I'm so far behind, people beat me even to bad ideas.

(Though checking out Fuck Yeah, Six Feet Under - there are only two posts. I could do way better than THAT.)

Oh man, the MST3k one is making me nostalgic. I may have to break out the tapestorrents.

Meta in the sense of "metastasized"?

I think it reveals something about my internet usage that I didn't even know until know that there was a "fuck yeah X" genre that wasn't pornalicious. Weird.

There is a Fuck Yeah America, though.

I've also started seeing a few "hell yeah" tumblrs for those who can't stand the idea of an f bomb.

Fuck Yeah Fuck. (totally SFW)
posted by charlie don't surf at 6:57 AM on June 3, 2010


My favorite is Fuck Yeah Math. It's actually really good. It has a lot of silly fun math jokes on it, but I was surprised that occasionally they take math questions. And whoever is answering them usually knows their stuff (it's usually just college math, but still, fuck yeah! for answering math questions).

Wow. I tried "milk." Fuck yeah. I tried "Volvo." Fuck yeah. I tried "grass." Fuck yeah. What hasn't been made into one? Seriously, this thing's like Scribblenauts without the fun!

Is this the thread where I say I'm a big advocate of the "Fuck yeah" tumblr but have some real problems with the "Fuck yes" tumblr?

What hasn't been made into one?

A few months ago I tried to make a Fuck Yeah, Hot Beverages! tumblr. Unfortunately, there are only so many photos of steaming cups of tea one can post before resorting to crappy stock photos with watermarks. So, it was deleted, my knowledge of how to make a secondary tumblr intact. If you want to take up the endeavor of spreading the joy of hot beverages to everyone, feel free, because according to this widget nobody else has.

The first I heard of this phenomenon was via the FY dedicated to Neil Gaiman's dog (now dogs): fuckyeahcabal.tumblr.com. There's also Fuck Yeah, Lady Death and Fuck Yeah, Sandman for your related Gaimanesque needs.

"7082+ FY! tumblrs found already! (Seriously)"

Quite fun watching that number go up. Only quite, though.
posted by nthdegx at 9:08 AM on June 3, 2010


Awesome, there's a Spider-Man fuckyeah and a not-quite-fuckyeah Spider-Girl, too. Two of each, actually, but these are the ones I like better.

Yay! That's one I started. Frankly, what with Skins and Banksy, I was surprised no one else had. We take submissions! I miss my home city.

Fuck Yeah, Trannies! It'll do. Largely because of Jimmy Olsen.

FuckYeahAsian is one of my favorite tumblrs.
posted by azarbayejani at 4:06 PM on June 3, 2010


I was only vaguely aware of the Fuck Yeah! meme, but I read this post today, and plugged the first semi-random topic that came to mind into the search engine. It wasn't there, and I was inexplicably saddened. So, as they suggested, I made it myself.

I don't want to self-link here, but see my profile to witness my awesome accomplishment.

I hope the juggalos--and those that love them--will be pleased.

Huh. And all along, I had assumed "FYL" was "fuck your life," and I had avoided it with careful precision.
posted by jbickers at 6:42 PM on June 3, 2010


Thank you for this. I did as instructed - searched for my favorite thing - and when there wasn't one, created it. Fun!
posted by misskaz at 2:59 PM on June 4, 2010


I wanted to point out my favorite, and the only one I subscribe to: Fuck yeah, animals with casts! But it looks like they decided to get rid of the obscenities since I last checked.

Sure, it's sad that the animals were once in pain, but isn't it sweet to know that someone cared for them and they'll soon be better?

That site almost got me a copywriting job at a fancy ad firm.

Almost.
