“This article is about the in-jokes of Uncyclopedia”

~ Captain Obvious on in-jokes

Hello there, sensible person. First of all, welcome to Uncyclopedia if you're fairly new, and if you aren't, no, I don't have any. Now, hopefully, your contributing to Uncyclopedia will mostly be a pain and stress free time, with all negative emotions overwhelmed by laughter and confusion. But, of course, there is the stubborn idiocy of what Uncyclopedians like to call in-jokes. These moronic pages have spread to the farthest corners of Uncyclopedia, yet their strange, oft stupid punchlines and undeserving popularity could drive you to madness! However, this page will explain to you those that you need to know about, so you will be equipped for anything that Uncyclopedia can throw at you short of snitching to the police about your supposed drug use.

Haven't the foggiest about Kitten Huffing? Perplexed by the sheer madness of AAAAAAAAA? Don't know the first thing about Euroipods? Every established bureaucratic admin was a new user too at one point, as oddly confused as you, and this guide probably helped them on the path to redemption too. Note that an in-joke is defined as one of the things on Uncyclopedia everyone occasionally makes a passing reference to, such as replying to a particularly stupid forum comment with a quick Nobody cares, or claims that you will be eaten by a "grue". It's easy to recognize them and understand them when you know what to look out for, so read on!

The list[edit]

AAAAAAAAA![edit]

The pictures are what really make the AAAAAAAAA! article.

AAAAAAAAA! (nine A's, by the way) is a page consisting of nothing but the letter A repeated over and over in text, images and templates used in the article. It was soon featured, and went on to become the top article of 2005. Supposedly, the article represents the laziness of some editors who can't be bothered writing humour so resort to random humour and takes it to an extreme with the repeating of the same letter over and over again. For a better picture of what's going on, listen to the article's audio version to hear some of the vocal inflections and the vast array of emotion supposedly explained in the article.

The article saw literally hundreds of copycat clones, BBBBBBBBB! and CCCCCCCCC! being notable examples. Each were deleted (referred to as huffing after another in-joke that is explained here) accordingly, as the joke works the first time and one AAAAAAAAA! is enough. AAAAAAAAA! has been the subject of two reskins. The second marked the article's position as the top rated article of 2005. The article has also has been translated into at least a dozen languages worldwide on foreign Uncyclopedias, with examples including Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Latin, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Traditional Chinese AAAAAAAAAs.

Anonymous Slashy[edit]

Originally, the article on Asperger Syndrome was relatively bland by Uncyclopedia standards, and in a more strict Uncyclopedia, would have probably been deleted. However, an anonymous user, apparently an Asperger Syndrome patient him or herself, protested on the article, claiming that Aspergers suffers could not take the "destructive criticism" of the article were they to stumble upon it, using the case of an Australian kid with the syndrome killing 35 people in a school shooting after being teased repeatedly as an example. After a VFD vote which Slashy claimed was unfair, the person had to resort to blanking and vandalizing as they were not being taken seriously.

Eventually, a forum was started to seriously discuss the matter. It started seriously, with Anonymous Slashy, Orion Blastar, Hrodulf and a handful of others arguing whether the article should be deleted and if it could cause offence. However, by the second of three pages, the discussion had already drifted into such topics as Al Qaeda and censorship law. In the end there was a compromise between the administrators and a friend of the "true aspie", and for a time, the article underwent a severe downtoning. Nevertheless, a parody article was written detailing the event.

A wizard did it[edit]

The phrase "a wizard did it" is believed to have originated on The Simpsons, moreso in the episode Treehouse of Horror X. On March 30, 2009 75.51.71.127, an IP, created the A wizard did it article, which then consisted of the two words "OHHH MAGICAL". Quite literally two minutes after the article's creation, Uncyclopedia member Dexter111344 stepped in and replaced "OHH MAGICAL" with "WOW! IT'S FUCKING MAGICAL OR SOMETHING!", and commencing a series of edits over the next hour which eventually left the article as what it is today.

The article was nominated for VFH on March 31, 2009 by Sockpuppet of an unregistered user, and failed. After that, it was nomminated for VFD on July 13, 2009 by Cajek. Again, it failed. Then finally, after being nominated for VFH again by Ethine, it was featured on 28 April 2010, and went on to be the second highest rated article of 2010. Why the article has such appeal to so many people is puzzling, although its randomness may be a factor here.

Steve Ballmer, Kanye West[edit]

Kanye West has proved that he's an idiot on multiple occasions.

In late 2005, a former Microsoft programmer told CEO Steve Ballmer that he was leaving the company for Google. Upon hearing this, Ballmer graciously threw a chair across the room before describing his respect for Google CEO Eric Schmidt thusly: "Fucking Eric Schmidt is a fucking pussy. I'm going to fucking bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again. I'm going to fucking kill Google." Just around that time, Hurricane Katrina kicked New Orleans into the sea, to the general indifference of the Bush administration. This led Kanye West to claim that "George Bush doesn't care about black people," during a live charity concert, which became controversial for some reason.

Pretty soon, quotes from the two began popping up on articles across Uncyclopedia:

“I have done it before, and I will do it again. I'm going to fucking kill <name>!”

~ Steve Ballmer on <name>.

George Bush doesn't care about the Bermuda Triangle.”

~ Kanye West on the Bermuda Triangle

Alas, a versatile joke is often a very stupid one. Soon, there wasn't anything that Steve Ballmer wasn't going to fucking kill that didn't care about black people. In fact, many times, Kanye West could rest assured that Steve Ballmer would make anything that didn't care about black people care about black people, by fucking killing it. This kind of stupid quote mixing and spreading got so annoying that by mid-2006, administrators had not only banned further Ballmer/West quotes, but began actively destroying existing ones. Nevertheless, the categories Things George Bush doesn't care about, an all-purpose category that continues Uncyclopedia's proud tradition of driving jokes right through the Earth's mantle and Things George Bush most certainly cares about, which does the exact same thing, but in an ironic way, still exist to this day.

BENSON[edit]

On the sixth of the sixth, 2006, a mysterious message appeared in the Village Dump, Uncyclopedia's main forum page:

Cquote1.png BENSON IS HERE! BENSON IS FAR SUPERIOR TO YOU! BENSON TYPES IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE BENSON SPEAKS IN ALL CAPS! ONE DAY BENSON WILL KILL YOU ALL, OR PERHAPS OWN YOU! BENSON JUST WANTED EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT HE IS HERE. Cquote2.png

Was this the foretold coming of the Antichrist? Probably. Although that forum delved into silliness and a short-lived vote over whether Benson should become an admin, a group of Uncyclopedians immediately proclaimed him their deity and thus was the birth of a legend. Though a writer of not-so brilliant articles, Benson has had a section of the Village Dump named after him and even his own group of followers. He went through a period of inactivity, ending on October 2, 2006.

The Cabal[edit]

There is no cabal. --TODO

Captains[edit]

Various "captain"characters are spread across Uncyclopedia. The first was Captain Obvious, the result of a somewhat accidental collaborative effort between various writers. Captain Obvious himself is a superhero whose only superpower is stating the obvious. The article was featured, and became one of the one of the best articles of 2006. Several spin-off captains soon emerged, such as Captain Oblivious (what's he all about?), Captain Omnipotent (I knew that), Captain Sarcasm (Gee, I wonder what he does and Captain Understatement. He understates things. Although these are the most prominent captains, various others have popped up and can be found here.

Euroipods[edit]

The humour behind this advertisement for the Empire-i-phone is derivative of Euroipods.

Euroipods parodied the website [www.euroipods.com], which offered free iPods from mid to late 2005. The article itself was created by, rather predictably, an IP, in October of 2005, as a quick one-liner (which is here). In a contoversial move detailed here, administrator Rcmurphy declared the article a feature with the infamous line: "Featured!" and stuck it on the front page. This spawned great controversy, although it eventually it all boiled down to nothing. Some users still did not understand the joke, but RudolfRadna put it best on the article's talk page:

Cquote1.png This is funny because it's funny that n00bs really think they can get free iPods. I mean, come on that's pathetically funny! Cquote2.png

As well as conflicts on the Talk:Euroipods page, content was being lumped on by all manner of users, until it was an unsightly list filled with random, idiotic humour. Eventually Some user added an expandable table and made everything look nicer, after which the entire article was compacted by sensible users until it reached its present state. The entire incident was immortalised in Uncyc history by the Euroipods Crusade article, which parodies the creation, furor and eventual featuring of the article. Spin-offs have also emerged, such as Imrealized's Euripides, Neuroipods, Goatseipods, which combines the event with the history of everyone's favorite shock site, Your "Eau aip Ods" and Euronintendo, a reference to a user who was banned over a minor edit war involving two templates on Euroipods.

Fisher Price[edit]

This started out as a piece of vandalism/slander where the user 4.252.99.182 posted the sentence 'go eat shit fuckers' on 1 November 2005. The admins thought it was funny and decided to keep it. It still remains, after numerous VFD attempts and was actually featured on the front page on 19 August 2006. This is mainly down to the Retrospective spin-off article, an adjunct which serves as an analysis of the original article, with various (often wild) perspectives written by Uncyclopedians.

Spin offs[edit]

Adding to the joke, some users have claimed to be 4.252.99.182. The first being Lstarnes, who was eventually banned for reasons unrelated to Fisher Price. The other being Fukshitfuck, who managed to convince Administrator Hinoa to delete it before he got an infinite ban, even though it was obvious that he was not the literary genius to write such a work of art.

Grues[edit]

Grues are small, ti-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

IRAQATTACK[edit]

In the month of October, an unknown user, who set his nickname to IRAQATTACK, entered the Uncyclopedia IRC channel. There, he repeatedly typed "IRAQATTACK!!!1111!!!1!" over and over again until Mhaille banned him/her. He turned into a life of wiki-crime using sockpuppets and replacing articles with a variation of "Iraq attack!!" he continued this until TheLedBalloon made him look at ED's "Pain series" article, after which he then gave up his evil ways, began contributing to uncyc positively, and held a grudge against ED. Since then, his words have appeared every now and then.


IRAQATTACK!!!11

Jesii[edit]

Hail Mary and pray that there will not be any more of these. God bless.

Jordanhill railway station (le Gare ferroviaire de la Colline-Jourdan)[edit]

A page parodying Wikipedia's 1,000,000th article of the same name.

Spin offs[edit]

  • Is made reference to in the original Zork game.

Kakun's personal VFP page[edit]

Uncyclopedian Kakun crapflooded the vote for featured image page with a load of his own (relatively sub-standard) pictures, thus bringing about the 2 self-noms per week rule. As a primitive VFP vetting measure, Kakun was given his own page for proposed self-noms to which he must post images prior to submitting them at VFP. Other Uncyclopedians then judge their suitability for VFP.

  • See also: Full details of this measure at Flammable's Office.

Kitten Huffing[edit]

A person 'huffs' a kitten.

One of the oldest and most famous of the Uncyclopedia in-jokes, this involves ingesting cats as if they were a drug. As you might guess, created by an anonymous IP.

Uncyclopedia presumes this originated from a viral video spread on the Internet.

However, there is the possibility these videos spawned from the original Uncyclopedia joke. You see, I'm not sure.

Spin offs[edit]

The KTs[edit]

It's an Uncyc admin pseudo-vanity article. The 'band' in the article is made of of four clones of Keitei.

Minitrue Approved articles, Ministry of Love[edit]

Not really an Uncyclopedia in-joke as such, but still confusing if you have never read or heard of the novel 1984 by George Orwell. The book centres around a supposed future world where peoples' actions are constantly being monitored by the ruling entity 'Big Brother' and his collective, the Party. Minitrue, or the 'Ministry of Truth' ensures that Big Brother's version of 'the truth' is practised and exerted wherever possible. Failure to live by the State's rules can lead to a spell in the 'Ministry of Love', which Wikipedia explains quite well in this excerpt:

Cquote1.png The Ministry of Love is responsible for the identification, monitoring, arrest and torture of dissidents, real or imagined...eradicating any remaining impulse of individuality or resistance, and replacing it with a sincere embrace of the Party. Cquote2.png

My sojourn[edit]

Seriously, don't ever go on a sojourn with this guy.

As usual, That time I was nearly raped by a yak during my sojourn in Canada was one of those pages created that was so bad, it was good. Eventually a user combined it with another (in)famous article, i maed a yuky doody, to make That time I nearly maed a yuky doody during my sojourn in Canada. This opened up the gates to several more formula-based parodies, until this category had to be created. Despite all Vegas odds against it, the category was featured on 20 January, 2009.

Nikki Lesson and the 'other' Uncyclopedia[edit]

A while back, another Wiki with the name 'Uncyclopedia' was discovered in Netland. This was infinitely much cruddier than the original and was just some schoolkid's vanity site. The site's creator, one Nikki Lesson was contacted by Uncyc's legal team. The result of this case is still pending, though nobody cares anymore, really.

Nobody cares[edit]

Since its featuring, it has become a tradition to link the words "nobody cares", whenever they appear on a page, to the Nobody cares page (see the previous entry for an example). Even on IRC, which does not support wikilinks, "nobody cares" is often written as "[[nobody cares]]".

In Featured Article Candidates (a VFH spoof), it is the only article that has no votes whatsoever, or even a proper voting section.

Spin offs[edit]

Oprah[edit]

Part of some sort of conspiracy involving rabid squirrels, but now that we've told you that, we shall have to kill you. Just like Steve Ballmer and Google. Oh, and there is no cabal.

Order of Uncyclopedia[edit]

This is a mickey take of The Order of the British Empire applied to Uncyclopedia and its users. Since its initiation, it has become a serious awards/ranking system for Uncyclopedians. Users can earn the titles 'KUN' or 'GUN' by winning Uncyclopedian of the Month or Writer of the Month respectively.

Ouroboros[edit]

The user known as DiZ has been known to preach the values of Ouroboros to anyone willing to listen. He says that it's a religion older than most, and that Ouroboros is revered in many cultures. BHOP is not one of these cultures, however. DiZ made the mistake of comparing Benson to Ouroboros (slanderously, if you ask a Bensonite) and forever earned the ire of many Bensonites. Although he has toned down his preaching, he still has enemies on Uncyclopedia.

Pee Review[edit]

This is a play on words on Wikipedia's Peer Review. See also: Patented nonsense, Uncyclopedia: Reefer Desk as a play on patent nonsense and on reference desk.

This guy used to be famous. Sort of.

Russian Reversal[edit]

Wikipedia has a good article explaining this. In Soviet Russia, Wikipedia reads YOU!!

Shot your fuck up[edit]

Originated from one comment, in poor English, on Talk:Poland. Presumably the author misinterpreted the colloquialism 'shut the fuck up'.

Sophia[edit]

Ok, let's straighten this out. There are two Sophias, both acting as Uncyclopedia mascots. One is the Potato logo of Uncyc, yes, that brown one in the top corner. The second, which the potato is named after, is the (human) female 'gnostic deity of Wisdom' to which a number of Uncyclopedians' poems and ditties are dedicated to.

This page does not exist[edit]

This page is a mysterious entry that, much like Schrodinger's cat, exists and does not exist at same time. However, admins are rumored to have the key to solve this mystery as they can bring it back and forth into existence, but a peasant user like you just can't create or edit it. Even if stuck in this quantum physics paradox of existence/non-existence, This page does not exist does have a talk page where users discuss its perplexing condition, whether in a philosophical tone or otherwise.

Spin offs[edit]

This page does not exist has been created numerous times by noobs and anonymous IPs, each time being annihilated. It has also become Uncyclopedia's first protected title.

Tourette's Syndrome[edit]

What the RAT'S COCK???

This page was originally no more than a semi-factual stub, until an offended user, a self-proclaimed sufferer of Tourette's, wrote a big rant on the talk page. It was then copied to the original page with a lot of expletives inserted; this was the birth of Template:Expletive, and the birth of the in-joke.

Uncyclomedia Foundation[edit]

This is Uncyclopedia's mirror of the Wikimedia Foundation, except it does nothing. Then again, the original Foundation does nothing useful either. See also UnBooks, a parody of Wikibooks and UnCommons, a parody of Wikimedia Commons.

Uncyclopedia is the worst[edit]

The Uncyclopedia is the Worst saga spawned a commemorative t-shirt.

This article came about after a derogatory message in the Village Dump, which some people thought was funny. Someone suggested it should be expanded into an article, so an homage article was created, ripping into Uncyclopedia in a kind of ironic fashion in the same tone as the original post. Almost as if it was written by the person who created the original Forum topic.

Now, the article has evolved into a kind of repository for all derogatory remarks posted in the Forum, on discussion pages and even elsewhere on the Internet.

The last word on this article shall be left with the article's original author/compiler, Hindleyite:

Cquote1.png Personally, I think there's nothing wrong with self-depreciatory humour. After all, we take the mick out of everything else, so why not ourselves? Cquote2.png

Spin offs[edit]

Wheeling Jesuit University[edit]

From what I can gather, this began as some sort of vanity page for a local University that completely spiralled out of control, largely due to overzealous efforts by school officials in Wheeling, West Virginia (yee-haw!) to force the original author(s) to remove it. Check the number of sub-articles. It is kept as permissable vanity on Uncyclopedia because it is actually pretty funny in parts.

Wheely Willy[edit]

One (incorrect) assumption is that Wheely Willy is really Wikipedia co-founder Jimbo Wales.

An article about the prolific Wikipedia vandal Willy on Wheels. He has an account here on Uncyclopedia, where he is worshipped indefinitely.

Oscar Wilde[edit]

Oscar is a mascot and 'founder' of Uncyclopedia, to which literally thousands of quotes on the website have been (mistakenly) attributed. Recently things have been getting a little bit out of hand, leading to the use of unneccessary Wilde references being outlawed. Starting to be phased out in favour of Noel Coward and other such literary figures (yeah, like that'll ever happen).

Mr. Winkler[edit]

Reminiscent of Fisher Price, a new user submitted a vanity stub with such terrible spelling and grammar that (some of) the users, namely Codeine, found it funny and decided to keep it. Many, many spin-offs were created there-after.

The original author, LotofLOLS who was banned for page blanking used a proxy to evade a ban and requested that his ban was lifted at a forum topic The ban was eventually lifted. For a short while, LotofLOLS was on Uncyclopedia's good side, before he created a forum requesting that the Mr. Winkler article be removed. LotofLOLS was indefinitely blocked hours later for starting drama. He used the same proxy to evade his ban and created multiple sockpuppets. Afterwards, a user impersonated Mr. Winkler and created a forum topic threatening that legal action would be taken if Mr winkler is GAY wasn't deleted. There were several grammatical errors in the statement, which lead users to believe that this wasn't an English teacher.

Spin-offs[edit]

Some users have begun to get sick and tired of this in-joke, causing some of the spin-offs too be deleted via VFD. The spinoffs remaining in the mainspace include:

...with SAVINGS!!![edit]

Created in a lab by noted scientist Savethemooses, the "...with SAVINGS!!!" phenomenon was an artificial meme planted in an IRC discussion for the purposes of seeing how long it would last and how many people it would piss off. Interesting to note is how, like memes in nature, it too managed to have a two-pronged effect when it was invoked: it either invited more people to join in, or it drove some users to near-homicidal insanity. Results are expected to be published in the Meme Journal Quarterly in Fall of 2007.

<insert name here>[edit]

Uncyclopedians like to make fun of <insert name here>, who is universally recognized as the most useless user here. As Captain Obvious might say, by using {{USERNAME}} you see your user name. This is used frequently in talk pages and sometimes in articles to make it look like the reader is specifically being talked about. It can work as a sort of initiation, as Noobs often believe they really are being targeted, especially when they see people complaining about or threatening to block <insert name here>.

<insert name here>, YOU ARE NOT THINKERER![edit]

What started off as a joke on the IRC channel spilled all over Uncyclopedia. The joke stemmed from people wanting to see Thinkerer on the chat. When this started, whenever somebody came on the channel, people would shout YOU ARE NOT THINKERER!. This went on for many days, which then prompted the creation of the article UnTunes:You're Not Thinkerer! and, eventually Category:Users who are not Thinkerer.

Spin-offs[edit]

The Thinker also had a vanity stub created by an IP after a mild edit duel. Though the page was deleted, the full text remains at an undictionary entry. This page later provided inspiration for Mr winkler is not Thinkerer, crossing over with the Mr. Winkler joke.

Zombiebaron[edit]

Zombiebaron zombiebaron zombiebaron... Uttering everything only using the "zombiebaron" word caught up quickly among the Uncyclopedia users, especially in situations connected by any means to Zombiebaron.

Zork[edit]

See this entry on Wikipedia.

There was a sensible explanation for this fine piece of madness. Unfortunately, it was eaten by a grue before it could be revealed to the world and is now lost forever.

Cthulhu-Jesus[edit]

What the hell, I may as well discuss this here. It seems that my medications combined with unusually hot weather have inspired me to create something based on two well-worn memes, Jesus and Cthulhu. Something unique to Uncyclopedia. Thus was born an Uncyclopedia in-joke (I am not testifying as to any humor or value being attached to such), Cthulhu-Jesus. Even now It's tentacles writhe and stretch, up, up toward the light... our light. I Googled it, and it's original as far as I can tell. More to come. rev. zim_ulator (Talk - Edits Logs) I am the dirt under your rollers. 01:40, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
