Lastest Internet Meme: Pepper Spraying Cop & "It's a Food Product, Essentially"

Throughout the various Occupy [Your_City_Name] protests happening around the world, one incident has become a viral hit across the web. Last week, during a peaceful protest at the University of California at Davis, cops sprayed people with pepper spray [video]. One of the cops was ex-Marine Lt. John Pike who was honored for his police service twice in the past. According to the Washington Post, he past also includes incidents of racial and sexual discrimination so he isn't a boy scout by any means.

So check out what people have done with this image, it's pretty hilarious (more at the end of the article):

Now a second equally funny meme based on the same event is about what Fox News host, Megyn Keller said about the incident. Keller makes light of it and says "It's a food product, essentially." 

For those who are unaware, Fox News is the anti-liberal, Republican "news" outlet that is as impartial as Emperor Palpatine in the Galactic Senate. Also, it's good to know that pepper spray creates blindness (can create permanent damage to your cornea) and incredible burning pains that often require medical attention. It can also be lethal

Here are the Top 10 memes about Keller that I pulled from the comments on Gawker:

1. Megyn Kelly on brains; "It's skull space-filler, essentially."
2. Megyn Kelly on tear gas: "It's like a sad story, essentially!" 
3. Megyn Kelly on Guantanamo: "It's a Carribean vacation, essentially" 
4. Megyn Kelly on nuclear weapons: "It's a microwave dinner, essentially!" 
5. Megyn Kelly on Auschwitz: "It was a three star hotel, essentially."
6. Megyn Kelly on being laid off when your wife is pregnant: "It's European style family leave, essentially."
7. Megyn Kelly on police dogs: "It’s a family pet, essentially!" 
8. Megyn Kelly on mustard gas: "It's a hot dog condiment, essentially!" 
9. Megyn Kelly on tasers: "It’s static cling, essentially!" 
10. Megyn Kelly on sleep deprivation: "It's like a cup o' Joe, essentially!" 

Some good stuff I must say.
