Hey Girl,

You can buy health insurance in an exchange, but my love for you is non-exchangeable. 

Okay, we just made that one up, but if that’s the kind of thing you like — along with hunky, thoughtful pictures of Internet memeboat Ryan Gosling —  then hie thee to Hey Girl Affordable Care Act, a Tumblr created by HuffPost Women that boasts Photoshopped pictures of the actor reacting sexily to the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday to uphold the Obama Administration’s landmark health care reform legislation.

Examples:

Hey Girl, I can think of lots of individual mandates for you.

Hey Girl, The SCOTUS decision reminds us that Congress has the power to lay taxes. I’ll be Congress, you be taxes.

Of course, it’s not just about Ryan Gosling (really, it’s not):  while the wait for the Supreme Court’s ruling may be over, the race to turn the landmark court decision and ensuing media chaos into amusing cat GIFs has only just begun.

For example: Check out “Affordable Care Cat,” complete with an angry Scalia Cat and a fairly brilliant reference to the health care donut hole.

Others used GIFs from classic TV shows to retell the morning’s events — BuzzFeed used The SimpsonsUproxx used The O.CThe Tumblr When SCOTUS Upheld Obamacare is another treasure trove of GIFs where you’ll even find a health care-related spoof of Texts From Hillary (ahem — based on a TIME photo, by the way).

How surprised was Mother Jones by the ruling? About as surprised as everybody’s favorite Rebel Alliance mollusk, Admiral Ackbar.

So whether you’re jumping for joy or writing a check to the RNC, you’re bound to get a kick out of these spoofs.

Hey girl, Obamacare may be a tax, but loving you is never taxing. See? We thought of another one.
