Q is for "Less QQ More Pew Pew"

Okay, let me admit right off the bat that I feel slightly cheap with today's meaning.  But look, there are two Qs right next to each other.  It's got to count.

QQ - Though not its original meaning, it has come to be pictograph, or emoticon representing two crying eyes.

Pew Pew - The sound of one firing one's laser.

So together, the sentiment roughly translates as "Stop crying and fight." 

This is an important sentiment that has been echoed throughout the ages with such phrases as "buck up," "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps," and "stop being such a whiny little bitch and do something about it."  However, nothing gets across the visceral transition from weakness to strength than this phrase.

Thank you Courage Wolf, for delivering today's message.

Do you have an example of when you were just phoning it it and hoping that no one was really going to care?
