10. Charlie Sheen's Tiger Blood

Charlie Sheen railed against his Two and a Half Men boss Chuck Lorre on the February 24th episode of The Alex Jones Show, and the result was an epic, utterly unhinged tirade that launched dozens of catchphrases and memes, including "WINNING" and "tiger blood," which the actor used in merchandising his My Violent Torpedo of Truth theater tour. "Who knew [Sheen] was sitting on a verbal goldmine?" Rob Sheffield asked in March. "He's like a volcano that's been dormant for years, until it suddenly erupts to spew tiger blood and Adonis DNA all over a grateful nation." It didn't take long for the Sheen spectacle to tip over from fascinating to sorta gross and sad, but the initial rush of excitement and hilarity was worth it.
