Friday Funnies: Quotative Like

XKCD shows us just how hard core linguists can be when it comes to the 'quotative like'.

"God was like, 'Let there be light,' and there was light."

fandom_grammar hasn't done an article specifically on the 'quotative like', but you can certainly check out our usage tag for general information on usage. There's also a Grammar Girl article called Why Do People Say "Like" So Much? which covers multiple different ways "like" is used.
