Original YTMND:

Worthy Spinoffs:

"So, you get NOTHING! You LOSE! Good DAY sir!"

You Lose! is a fairly flexible fad, in that can be applied to many different situations. The reasoning for this is the audio used within the fad; the audio is a speech which was given by actor Gene Wilder, who played the role of Willy Wonka, in the 1971 movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Usually, a site creator will take lines, bits, and pieces from the speech to get his or her point across.

The Speech

The whole speech, as transcribed by the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), is as follows:

Grandpa Joe: Mr. Wonka?
Willy Wonka: I am extraordinarily busy, sir.
Grandpa Joe: I was just wondering about the chocolate - Uh, the lifetime supply of chocolate... for Charlie. When does he get it?
Willy Wonka: He doesn't.
Grandpa Joe: Why not?
Willy Wonka: Because he broke the rules.
Grandpa Joe: What rules? We didn't see any rules. Did we, Charlie?
Willy Wonka: Wrong, sir! Wrong! Under section 37B of the contract signed by him, it states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if - and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy - "I, the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained," et cetera, et cetera..."Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum," et cetera, et cetera..."Memo bis punitor delicatum!" It's all there, black and white, clear as crystal! You stole fizzy lifting drinks. You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!
Grandpa Joe: You're a crook. You're a cheat and a swindler! How could you do a thing like this, raise up a little boy's hopes and then dash all his dreams to pieces? You're an inhuman monster!
Willy Wonka: I said "Good day!"

Structures of the Fad

When the site creator wants to get a "you fail" message across to a certain person or topic, they often use the single line "You LOSE! Good DAY sir," as in the original site, So you get NOTHING! You LOSE! Good DAY sir. If the creator wants to make fun of legalities/politics, or insert Wilder into another movie/TV show scene where there is a disagreement and a rebuttal, they will use the whole speech, such as in Willy Wonka Addresses Congress. Sites may or may not contain images of Gene Wilder, his character Willy Wonka, or edited scenes of the movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
