The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite MMO-specific meme?

Half man. Half beard. Another half beard.

Playing lots of MMOs can help you understand the discourse around them… which, as often as not, is crouched deep in the language of memes. Oh, those wonderful memes. Knowing enough World of Warcraft to appreciate jokes like the omnipresence of Legion’s illusion detection or that skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius? Priceless. Being familiar with Final Fantasy XIV so that you understand jokes about the Crystal Exarch getting into his Stress Box or why anyone calls Au Ra lizards? So valuable.

Or at least, valuable for understanding player memes.

Any big enough game is going to have its own memes and in-jokes, often time eventually being referenced within the game itself simply because the developers also see these jokes. So with or without context, what’s your favorite MMO-specific meme? A joke that may not make sense to anyone who doesn’t play the game, but one that never fails to make you laugh when you see it?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
