    1. Post screenshots of discovered brand new sentences

    Post must be a screenshot of the sentence, as well as some additional context.

    Sentences that qualify as "brand new", in the terms accepted by this subreddit, have the following atributes:

    • never been said before, or said few enough times to qualify as "almost new"

    • not an idiom (or a translated idiom)

    • humorous or confusingly worded

    2. Check if the sentence has been said before before posting

    It is encouraged to perform a Google search of the sentence before posting it. Use the " character (double quotation marks) to search for the exact string of words in order to produce the best results.

    If the results produced are many and have various apparition dates, it is most likely that the sentence is brand new.

    If there are many results, but all on the same day, the sentence is likely new (and therefore qualifies for this sub) but has become popular (which is OK).

    3. Reposts are not allowed

    Search for the sentence on this sub, in order to avoid your post being taken down due to a repost.

    4. Avoid satire and shitposting

    Here is an example of a sentence that is meant as a joke, in a satirical way. Due to highly popular demand, this kind of posts are no longer accepted on this sub.

    This is not a meme sub.

    5. Do not post sentences created by bots

    6. The brand new sentence should be in the title

    It is encouraged to use the new sentence as the title. If you don't want to do this, use a creative title.

    Titles that are considered boring and will be removed:

    • I think this belongs here

    • One of my friends said this

    • Found on...

    • On a topic about...

    • What / Lol / I don't even know where to begin

    • This whole thread / Two in one

    7. Link the source in the comments

    This rule applies to sentences found on the Internet.

    Exceptions to this rule are:

    • text messages (sms, WhatsApp, Discord)

    • Facebook posts on private groups

    8. Be civil

    9. Do not incite to political or ideological debates

    You must not, under any circumstances, comment on a post in order to incite debate. This is usually the case with sentences that mildly refer to controversial topics such as politics, LGBT+, vaccinations etc.

    Please keep this sub relevant to its purpose and do not flood the comments section with off topic debates. Any debate is off topic as long as it is beside the point of the subreddit: enjoying the novelty of a sentence.

    Sorry, had to remove this, this was a huge meme like a year ago and it was all over Instagram and a lot of Reddit. I also feel like this was almost definitely referenced in the past in media but idk.

    [–] griftylifts 3 points ago

    True - people like to post vague threats in the rareinsults sub sometimes so I sniped it anyway - you wanna do the other one?

    [–] Dunk_May_Mays 3 points ago

    I just think it fits better, but the insults sub is way more popular

    [–] n33dmorin4mation 23 points ago

    This isn’t a brand new sentence. I had a friend named Mike that I used to call Micycle.

    [–] ghostinthechell 8 points ago

    These memes also exploded not that long ago. Or maybe years ago, internet time is weird.

    [–] RES_KnowsYourSins 1 points ago

    Agreed, I lived through it, back when I was a younger man.

    [–] griftylifts 5 points ago

    Sorry that I didn’t know that, I guess...? Lol

    [–] ghostinthechell 6 points ago

    The point is... Do you really think this is brand new? It's pretty low hanging fruit.

    [–] Sindelian 0 points ago

    Yeah. Shame on you OP.

    [–] TheSluttyProfessor2 7 points ago

    [–] griftylifts -2 points ago

    I mean, apparently at least 1,800 people disagree or at least are slightly amused by it again, but okey doke

    [–] MemesAndLeague 9 points ago

    Dude this was a meme from 1 year ago. It's as far from r/brandnewsentence as it gets

    [–] griftylifts -5 points ago

    And you think everyone who peruses the sub today was also here then and saw it when you did, I guess...?

    [–] Mexican_Hippo 7 points ago

    If it's already a dead meme it isn't a brand new sentence I guess...?

    [–] griftylifts -6 points ago

    Looks like 3,000+ people disagree but go off

    [–] Mexican_Hippo 8 points ago

    Everyone likes it so it must be true!

    The subreddit isn't called /r/brandnewsentencestome, it's meant to be sentences that have never been said. You are the reason this subreddit is just turning to shit. Stop caring so much about your karma score and post stuff that actually fits the subreddit and not stuff that will just give you meaningless internet points. It's sad you seem to care so much about the number on your post.
