The superpopular Tumblr blog “F*** Yeah! Ryan Gosling” spawned so many other Ryan Gosling–themed memes they’re nearly impossible to keep track of. Some, like Feminist Ryan Gosling, are so timeless and clever and funny, they’ve turned into books. Others are poorly thought-out one-joke hits that DON’T DESERVE THE GOSLING NAME, DANG IT. So I did what anyone else with a lot of time and Gosling on her hands would do: I catalogued — and ranked — nearly all of them.

1. F*** Yeah! Ryan Gosling

The original. All he wants to do is cuddle, watch movies and give you foot massages.


2. Is Ryan Gosling Cuter Than a Puppy?

Tough life choices.

This one didn’t quite cut it.

16. Rhetoric Ryan Gosling

OK, this is getting too esoteric. Enough already.

24. Silicon Valley Ryan Gosling

Smooth with technology. Not so much with the jokes.

25. Shakespearean Ryan Gosling

Maybe this is the new way to teach Shakespeare in high school. Otherwise, it’s not really doing it for me.
