Admin A: “...buddy, you remember that time?..”
Admin B: “The time you banned that guy?”
Admin A: “Yeah, that was sweet.”

"Admins" is a word. More than a word, really, it's a state of mind. It's also a contraction of another word, Administrators. Admins are the police in a crime-riddled Uncyclopedia; the only sane minds in a world gone mad. They're the shotgun blast to the zombie skull of page-blankers.
They're just like the rest of us. But better...and with a modicum of power. Like mall cops. Except mall cops aren't better and have no power.
In short, they're exactly like mall cops.
The black art of the humble admin originated way back with Pope Eugene III. As a Pope saddled with a nerdy name, Eugene felt the need (as all those who are the infallible word of God on Earth inevitably do) to get more power and spread peace and love by crushing all those that opposed him. He did this by issuing a Papal Bull in 1145 that stated something in Latin. As even back in times of yore no one could read Latin, his people decided that he'd meant the Bull to be for the creation of another level of bureaucracy. They also tacked on a rider starting the Second Crusade. But that's another article (or, if it hasn't been created yet, that's not another article). And they also started this sort of peace and love But that's also another article.
In this case the Bull led to the creation of His Most Holy Defenders of a Series of Interconnected Tubes, Though Truly Not of the Tubes Themselves But of the Traffic That Passes Through Those Very Tubes.
The title sounds better in Latin. It sounds a bit like "Admin", in fact.
Adminstratorés Gone Wild!
These newly created Adminstratorés quickly found that there was nothing for them to do, as the Interweb had not yet been invented.
Instead, half took up music and joined the local choir. They weren't told about the necessary "snip" before joining the Castadministrasti. Eugene had a good laugh about that one.
The other half went along on the Second Crusade, where they were pants'd by friend and foe alike.
Quickly they grew mad with their newfound power, as those over which they ruled were, unlike Crusaders and infidels, powerless to pants the recently repants'd Adminstratorés. This was because they, the admins, were paper-pushers ruling over other, not-admin, paper-pushers and pushers of paper are notoriously weak, unless they're admins. Admins, while notorious and weak, are rarely both simultaneously.
Admins in Modern Times
“Stupid vandal! You go squish now!”
With the relative collapse of Papal and Papal-decreed power, the admins and their mad lust for power languished until the invention and promulgation of the one-two punch of computers and the internet.
Admins, like the Papacy, evolved to cope with changing times. They, like organized religion in general and organized generals of religion, have changed to evolve with coping times.
In modern times on Uncyclopedia they make the tough choices, choosing which articles have always been crap, are crap now and will continue to be crap in the future, and are to be huffed without mercy (This page does not exist), and which are to be both heralded as genius and worshipped as false idols (Fisher Price).
It's a tough job. They have to put up with questions from people that, for some reason, don't know everything, questions from people that need answers to the questions that they are asking, and questions about the logic behind the deletion of a user's shitty two-line article.
Luckily for the users, admins are looking out for Uncyclopedia's best interests.
...and there's nothing you can do about it. Unless you join the cabal
- ^ Original cast recording available from LOL-WTF-ROFL records.
- ^ Not a cool name like Gregory or Alexander. Those guys were knee deep in pussy while poor Eugene had to do without. Pussy, we mean. Not knees. Of those he had plenty. Well not plenty per se, he had two knees. That is to say just as many as Gregory and Alexander. Who had two. Knees. Each. Got any aspirin?
- ^ The fully-full title was His Most Holy Defenders of a Series of Interconnected Tubes, Though Truly Not of the Tubes Themselves But of the Users That Produce the Traffic That Passes Through Those Very Tubes and of the Cleaning and Clearing of the Garbage That a Small Percentage of Those Users Generate. In Latin that's a real mouthful. Of Latin.
- ^ No, not in fact. The opposite of that, in fact.
- ^ Pope Eugene was kicked out of Rome for being too nerdy and had to rule from France. The indignities and rich pastries that he suffered while there are truly the stuff of legend.
- ^ Mad!
- ^ Sadly, somebody forgot to put the cream back in the fridge when they were done with it. An admin, probably.
- ^ There is, of course, no cabal. The Adminatti, on the other hand...
