The Kappa frat brother turned collegiate drug kingpin who used to smoke you out in-between posting Omar Little image macros on his wall and practicing Ultimate on the quad must be losing his goddamn mind (like, almost as much as he did when Blink 182 announced the reunion tour): earlier today the Internet exploded with reports that HBO was rebroadcasting all five seasons of The Wire. Every white dude in the world immediately hit up their Moms and Pops for the HBO Go password. But, as it turns out, it was all just wishful thinking and misleading promo videos: according to HBO, the episodes “aren’t ready yet” and the release date has been pushed back indefinitely. Sigh. It’s all in the game, yo.
While HBO Signature (one of the seven satellite channels you get when you pay for HBO — not the one in Spanish or the one that only plays Vince Vaughn movies and soft-core porn) won’t be rebroadcasting the greatest show ever (according to EW and the Internet and everyone with eyes) as previously reported, you can still join us in a GIFlebration of TV’s finest gay stick-up man, Omar Little. Below we’re sharing some of our favorite Omar-themed Internet moving pictures and some everyday situations that merit their use. Publicly mourn this cruel prank by posting your favorite Wire GIF in the comments.
