The usual sentence from the wild:

First, a person’s future spouse must Jesus just
as hard as they do, however the spouse-seeker
defines that idea.

"Jesus is a verb not a noun" is an actual sentence, I hear tell.

Among many. And related to the "because bacon" construction. It's become
very common in speech in recent years to use this sort of shorthand
(this also applies to speech-proxies like twitter or text messaging,
less to things like email or blog posts.)

I should be able to think of many examples, since this comes up several
times a week, if not daily, but the only one that comes to mind recently
was when playing World of Warcraft recently I was in a group where one
of the players said "Sorry about that I haven't played in a while n I
forgot how to druid."
