Remember when Walter White had to get chemotherapy? That was a crappy day!

And when he chose to sell meth under the pseudo name of Heisenberg? Hey, You Only Live Once!

Following Facebook's 10-year anniversary last week, in which the company celebrated with a special "Look Back" video, South African comedy duo Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues has taken the same concept and applied it to Walter White.

Yes, you can/should watch Breaking Bad online at TV Fanatic in order to fully relive this character's best and worst moments.

But you can also take a minute below to do the same via a hilarious Facebook parody:

Ryan Carroll, a 28-year-old man who won a contest to meet the Breaking Bad cast at its September finale, has been arrested on drug dealing charges.

A raid on a home in the San Carlos Park neighborhood in Fort Myers, Fla., let to the arrest of Carroll, who was taken into custody on felony charges.

He got popped for possession of synthetic narcotics and a misdemeanor charge of allegedly keeping a shop or vehicle for dangerous drugs, CNN reports.

Not small-time quantities, either. As the warrant was served, neighbors described a swarm of police cars and dozens of officers descending on the neighborhood.

Sounds like a certain TV show Ryan is a fan of. He won a national contest to meet the stars of Breaking Bad in L.A. prior to the AMC hit's series finale.

"It's just so addicting," Carroll said at the time he won the big prize. "It's such a good show. I think it's addicting because people can relate to the main character."

It is that time once again, THGers. The time to unveil the finalists for, and eventually the winner of, THG's prestigious, arbitrary, 7th Annual Celebrity of the Year honor.

Between now and the end of 2013, we will be counting down the 10 stars who provided us with the best moments, stories, scandals and entertainment value.

We kicked off the countdown earlier with a smoldering Kate Upton at #10. Now we present our Celebrity of the Year Finalist #9 ... Walter White!

Strange as it may seem to put a fictional TV character on our year-end list ... this is not your average TV character. There will never be another Walter White.

Developed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and portrayed by Bryan Cranston, Walt (and later his Heisenberg persona) became iconic.

Once a promising chemist and co-founder of a multi-billion dollar company, we first met Walter as a meek, nerdy, down on his luck chemistry teacher.

The greatest television program in the history of mankind is no more.

Breaking Bad went off the air for good on September 29, though its influence and its many memorable scenes/moments/quotes/episodes will continue to live on forever.

And the series will also live on and on thanks to the Internet, of course.

How did Hank go out? Did the finale live up to the hype? What kind of cereal did Walt Jr. have for breakfast most often on Season 5? These are the important questions.

And you can now head over to TV Fanatic and have them answered when you watch Breaking Bad online. Enjoy!

It was all a dream, Breaking Bad fans.

AMC has released an alternate ending to Breaking Bad Season 5, one that invokes both Newhart and Malcolm In the Middle, as Bryan Cranston wakes up as Hal from his former Fox sitcom and babbles about the crazy nightmare he just experienced.

"There was this guy who never spoke, who just rang a bell the whole time," Cranston sayd, adding that Hank looked like "the guy from The Shield" and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman was "a little guy, a waif, a man-child, [a] kid who always looked like he was wearing his older brother's clothes."

It's totally hilarious and it will be part of the Breaking Bad box set released on November 26. Watch now:

An awesome photo of Little Jesse and Baby Walt - two kids dressed up as the characters from Breaking Bad - spread rapidly across the web this Halloween week.

It even ended up on the Instagram page of Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse, drawing over 100,000 likes. The kids' mother was not one of those approving.

In fact, despite being a Breaking Bad fan, the mom of the two boys, ages four months and three years, was shocked and confused as to how the photo got there.

What started out as private family fun shared on Facebook quickly took a turn for the worse, and devolved into attacks on her taste and skills as a parent.

"Come on, what's the kid telling his friends? Hey, I'm a meth dealer for Halloween! Not cool, parents," one blogger wrote, criticizing the (hilarious) image above.

A faux funeral was held last weekend for Breaking Bad character Walter White in Albuquerque, N.M., and while it raised money for charity, not everyone was pleased.

Walter White Grave

Over 200 fans paid respects to the man who "brought people into Albuquerque, brought attention into Albuquerque, and brought money into Albuquerque."

The funeral, put together by Breaking Bad fans, raised $17,000 for a local charity, with mourners making donations to shovel dirt onto Walt's (empty) coffin.

Family members of actual people buried at Sunset Memorial Park, weren't happy, though, given that the coffin, grave site and headstone are all real.

"My son is buried just about 15 yards from where the makeshift grave site is," says one upset father. "This is a place of mourning. It’s not a spectacle."

Bryan Cranston has three Emmy Awards on his mantel.

But it may end up being a framed letter that becomes the actor's most prized possession.

Two weeks after the Breaking Bad finale that rocked the television universe, Cranston received a written message from Sir Anthony Hopkins that gave the AMC show, its crew and its cast the highest of praise.

It also said Cranston put on the "best acting" Hopkins has ever seen.

And this man has seen some acting in his time!

Scroll down to read the full letter from the Academy Award-winning legend:

Walter White's death on Sunday's Breaking Bad finale has been immortalized by his hometown Albuquerque Journal, which ran an obituary for the character.

The photo chosen is from his pre-Heisenberg days. No hat:

Walter White Obituary

Walt is listed as co-founder of Gray Matter - which ended up being a key plot point -  and died from a "long battle with lung cancer, and a gunshot wound."

Skyler, meanwhile, apparently dropped the White surname.

In lieu of flowers for the fallen meth kingpin, the notice of his death says "donations can be made to a drug abuse prevention charity of your choice."

The Albuquerque Journal says the obituary for the iconic TV character was designed, written and paid for by a group of die-hard Breaking Bad fans.

That's awesome.

It should satisfy the enormous ego of Walter White to know that he went out in a blaze of record-setting glory.

The series finale of Breaking Bad - which ended with Walt freeing Jesse, killing a lot of Neo-Nazis and passing away from a gunshot wound inside a meth lab - shattered series ratings on AMC, garnering 10.3 million overall viewers.

That's an astounding 300% increase over last year's finale, with 6.7 million of those viewers residing in the advertiser-friendly demographic of 18-49-year olds.
