"Right in front of my salad?!" is the internet's new favorite way to express shock and disbelief, and you'll be shocked and disbelieve where it comes from.
The phrase comes from a gay porn scene, in which two naked men wearing only aprons are copulating behind the kitchen counter. A woman, revealed to be sitting at the kitchen table, says, "Are you guys fucking? Are you serious?! Right in front of my salad?!
Here is the link to the porn scene. It is a porn scene, so it is NSFW, depending on where you work. It comes from the pornographic film Private Lessons 3, which I don't think you need to have seen Private Lessons and Private Lessons 2 to understand.
That perfect line of dialogue, which isn't just spectacular by porn writing standards, has now taken over the internet and is interrupting everyone's lunch. It's now joined "Are you joking?" and "You're not serious!" in the thesaurus entry for "You're kidding me."
The meme went viral on Twitter and Tumblr over the weekend, part of its magic coming from peoples' reactions when they discover its origins.
It's bigger than its humble origin, inspiring spinoffs and fan art.
It can also change peoples' minds.
Next time you watch a porn, don't sleep on the dialogue. It could be America's next top meme.
