"The Internet phenomenon started with the release of a video clip online to the World of Warcraft forums in a thread titled "UBRS (vid) ROOKERY OVERPOWERED! blue please.," which jokingly presented the video in a serious context, asking other players for help with strategy and requesting that Blizzard reduce the difficulty of the encounter. The video was released by the World of Warcraft Alliance player guild "PALS FOR LIFE" on the Laughing Skull PvP realm. It features a group of players discussing a detailed battle strategy for a group of enemies while one of their members, Leeroy, is away from his computer. Their plan is ruined when Leeroy returns and, ignorant of the strategy, immediately charges headlong into battle shouting his own name as a battle cry. His companions rush to stop him but his subsequent actions ruin the meticulous plan, and the group members are killed. His response to the other players' reactions, "at least I have chicken", was also much parodied.

When asked about his actions in the video by National Public Radio, Ben Schultz simply responded: "We were drinking 40s and just yelling at each other."

    I liked what he said at Senator Kennedy's funeral today.

    ...And even though I have been blocked for offering the VERY BENIGN opinion above, I STILL thought it was a lovely and touching service.

    Obama is trying to bring a Marxist otherwise known as Communist system in place, which if you studied history; Communism failed and the people suffered for it.Government was not ment to run everything for the people, he did not gradate from college with a degree in Buisness,politics or Foreign Affairs; but insteed a law degree. He's a good public speaker and I can only hope he will fix the econemy, but Im no getting my hopes up.

    He's not THAT stupid! I could blame him for a lot of errors and not living up to the expectations of those who voted him into office, but give the man some room. He may redeem himself yet. I am an optimist and see Obama's glass half full...

    The GOP can stop nothing...the DNC has a super-majority so I think you may be confused as to how much power Republicans have.

    By the way...how do you know I am a Republican?

    Not necessarily a republican but a conservative at the least from what I have seen of you. The republicans in office use fear and lies to get their ways, I am no democrat and am disdained to say that most of them are spineless bastards.

    So why did you use the term:

    You should get your facts straight.

    Yes, by a group of "community organizers" looking for trouble. This poll is in no way offensive and they are starting trouble.

    Like I said, he's Art and he posted a...well, not inflammatory, but suggestive poll. Of course people are going to stand up for the President. That they all arrived at one time is probably a function of the share feature.

    It happens like this all the time, man. To every poll and post. Look at one of Starr's polls some time and you'll see that every opponent accesses the post at pretty much the same time. Why? It was shared out among a particular subset of people. Same here.

    Standing up for someone (even though they stink worse than the dog crap I stepped in the other day) does not entail calling others names and traveling in lynchmobs.

    Just remember that the next time one of SG's polls gets dog piled or you share out a poll/discussion. Besides, it's a discussion site. This is what that entails, input from those who agree and disagree. Without that it might as well be usenet.

    SG?

    The comments should reflect the context of the question.
    "Your racist!" is hardly relative.


    You and I disagree, yet we remain civil. I respect you for that. You also have the ability to think for yourself, and I hope you are not coming to polls based on an SOS from a lame lynchmobgroup.

    I belong to several groups and have never seen anyone form a lynch mob.

    I know, man. It's the reason I broached the subject with you; because we understand where we each stand in relation to the world around us and how our views are. It's a sense of mutual respect for those views.

    I don't respond, per se, to SOS's (though I have) but I do follow shared news/blogs/discussions. Sometimes it's from people of a like mind such as myself, sometimes it's from people like yourself or Bill. Whatever the trail I follow here it's because of my curiosity. In this case, the question was shared out by an individual of similar views, not a call to arms.
