As an hilarious internet meme, Anchorman pretty much died out a decade ago — no self-respecting online wit made “I’m in a glass case of emotions” jokes after 2007. Then 2013’s Anchorman II and the rise of social media revived it for about a day-and-a-half, and then we all moved on with our lives.

It’s all harmless fun I suppose, but I’m having a hard time imagining Bruce Bochy or Mike Matheny putting up with this nonsense.
