It's weird where these memes will pop up in conversation sometimes.  I was talking with a older VP in our company one day and she said "I used to like working on this project, until I took an arrow...".  Sense of humor, fellow gamer, Skyrim player, all that info in one statement.  She grinned and said she knew I was the only one in the group that would understand it...

it was cool when it came out and lots of people were still unaware of what a heck were you talking about. But then, like everything that is overused, became completely saturated. You could not enter any kind of gaming discussion without someone popping it out.

I used to like Gamespot reviews just like you until I took an arrow in the knee. :)

it was pretty hilarious back when it popped-up and it can still make you smile if you don't hear it repeatedly every 30s

Yea that meme had its day. If anyone were to still make this joke it's a little delayed imo (therefore not funny). Awesome segment :)

Arrow to the knee meme is one of my guilty pleasures, I admit.  I suppose its easier to enjoy memes from games you are very familiar with, and I logged a lot of time in Skyrim.   Sad this is the last show for awhile, but there are only so many memes...

Jessywoo, light of my life, cream in my coffee, as this is the last one of these you're doing for a bit, does that mean you'll be making more effort in our relationship now? I'm tired of doing the dishes every night and really, do we have to see your parents EVERY weekend? The air travel bills are killing me!

Apparently none of those guards could adventure anymore because they took an arrow to the knee, and yet a dragon flies by and they run after it. :P

Lidia always saying "I'm sworn to carry your burdens", used to drive me up the wall too.

I got Skyrim when it came out and rushed through it in a week, then I was in basic training for 2 months and had missed the rise and fall of this meme.

jess, bring your candid awkwardness to me. We don't have to talk about games, you do the talking I'll do the listening.

Hmm. I wonder... With the new Tardis mod of the week. what if one went back in time and prevented the guard from taking said arrow, to said knee?

I used to make arrow to the knee jokes, but then I took some common sense to the head.

I found out that "arrow to the knee" was like a slang phrase in ancient Nordic which meant to get married.......this was while making my daily trek in funny junk and don't know how much weight it carries.

When Chuck Norris gets an arrow in the knee he does the Riverdance.

@RPG_Fan_I_Am Fixed point in time, like Rose's Dad getting hit my the car or Pompeii. Couldn't happen.

@holhardy Since your still leaving comments, I would assume you have yet to experience taking an arrow to the knee!!??!

@PupilsDilated Heh, pretty funny. Although I can't really imaging Chuck Norris doing the Riverdance. He'd probably just stand next to a river and have IT do the dancing for him.

@tempertress @kerc_chaos It's definitely one of the more creative derivatives of the arrow to the knee meme... Also, it conjures up the image of Jay-Z in a suit of armour rapping (I almost spelt that with 1-P... awkward.) which brings a smile to my face. Your next meme, if you don't mind the suggestion could be a League meme like Mundo goes where he pleases or Gangplanks "I ate an orange and it was K"

@tmrtyn @PupilsDilated how does he even get an arrow to the knee? o_O unless he throws it himself, which will cause the arrow to get a Chuck Norris to the knee.
