A phrase used by Tumblr users to find other Tumblr users. If you use Tumblr, the right response to this is, "Thanks, I stole them from the president!" However, if you don't use Tumblr, get people that say this by saying,"Why thank you! The president wouldn't let me steal his, so I had to steal some from the vice president, cuz I don't use Tumblr! Ha!"
Some Tumblr user:Wow, I like your shoelaces.
Some non-Tumblr user:Why thank you! The president wouldn't let me steal his, so I had to steal some from the vice president, cuz I don't use Tumblr! Ha!
The Tumblr user:why
