  • 05/10/17--09:08: The Old Farmer's Alminac
  • About

    The Old Farmer’s Almanac or simply The Farmer’s Almanac is an annual reference book that is published on the first Tuesday in the September that precedes the year for which the book represents. It provides information related to farming in particular including weather forecasts, tide tables, planting charts, astronomical data, recipes, and articles on various topics. The Farmer’s Almanac also features anecdotes and contains a section that predicts trends in fashion, food, home décor, technology, and living for the coming year. Having been in publication nonstop since 1792, the Farmer’s Almanac is the oldest continuously published periodical in North America.

    History

    The Old Farmer’s Almanac was first published 1792 under the name of simply “The Farmer’s Alminac” and found relatively immediate success in the years that followed, despite stiff competition at the time. By its second year, distribution had already tripled to 9,000. As time progressed, the editor Robert B. Thomas started drilling holes in the Almanacs to allow for consumers to hang the books from nails or a string.

    In 1832, the Almanac had already outlived its competitors, and due to that, Thomas decided to add the word “Old” to the title. He later dropped the title and returned to “The Farmer’s Almanac”. After his death, however, John Henry Jenks was appointed editor and in 1948 permanently revised the name to “The Old Farmer’s Almanac”.

  • 05/10/17--10:24: Blood for the Blood God
  • About

    Blood for the Blood God, sometimes followed by “Skulls for the Skull Throne,” is a catchphrase from Warhammer 40k. The phrase has appeared in image macros and various other places and turned into a snowclone.

    Origin

    “Blood for the Blood God” a common battlecry amongst the Chaos Space Marines faction of the game. The faction worships one of the Four Gods of Chaos, Khorne. Khorne is the God of War, Murder, Anger, Hate, and general Bloodshed. His private realm in the Warp is said to be filled with rivers of blood and that he sits upon a throne of skulls, made from all who die in battle. Thus when a Chaos Space Marine kills someone, they cry “Blood for the Blood God, Skulls for the Skull Throne!” The earliest explanation of the phrase online was posted in Khorne’s Wikia page,[1] written March 28th, 2006.

    Spread

    On July 3rd, 2008, a demotivational poster featuring the phrase was posted to gamereplays[2] by Jean=A=Luc (shown below).

    I Was Bitten By a Turtle When I Was a Young Lad refers to a copypasta from a Yahoo! Answers question in which a person asks if they can still drink orange juice even though they were bitten by a turtle as a child. The question, considered ridiculous for its syntax as well as the supposed medical connection between turtle bites and orange juice, has been posted numerous times on the site and elsewhere.

    Origin

    On September 1st, 2008,[1] Yahoo! Answers user Tuggy posed the question, “I was bitten by a turtle when I was a young lad, should I still drink orange juice?” For additional information, they said “I need to know ya’ll.

  • 05/12/17--11:04: Fartposting / Brap
  • About

    Fartposting, Brapposting, or simply Brap, often extended with more ’A’s as required (for example: “braaaaaaap”), is a slang term which refers to the sound produced by a fart, and consequentially, alludes to fart fetishists in the form of copypasta.

    Origin

    “Brap” is primarily used for shitposting and thread derailing on image boards such as 4chan.

    A Reddit user posted to the subreddit r/OutOfTheLoop, looking for an explanation of the term.[1] Many comments responded explaining that the term referred to farting. One user replied with a possible origin from 4chan, stating:[2]

    the actual answer is a few people who were into fart/scat fetishes started posting pictures of chicks with nice asses and stuff and then posting cringe tier erotica next to it about chicks farting and stuff.

    People found it hilarious and started posting it all over the place and it just kind of took of as a meme. I think i saw it on /r9k/ before /fit/ though.,


    Precursor: Brap as Euphemism for Farting

    An early use of the term can be traced back to March 04, 2008 on Urban Dictionary, where the fifth-ranked submitted definition for “brap” reads thusly:[3]

    The volume rating of a fart (Bp) governed by three variables;- rectal pressure®, buttock friction (f) and sprouts consumed (SpC). Buttock friction (f) can be reduced to zero by pulling the ringpiece open wide during emission.

    “My word said the vicar, that anal exclamation was right off the brapometer”


    However, it should be noted that there are other definitions ranked above this that do not coincide with either the memetic usage of “brap” as shitposting or with fart fetishism.

    Spread

    Usage of “brap” as a copypasta-style meme seems to have spread primarily in the mid 2010s, with regard to the aforementioned Reddit thread attempting to seek an understanding of the term’s usage on 4chan. On November 16, 2016, a 4chan user gained mild notoriety on the video games board, /v/, with a post containing what appeared to be brap-themed roleplay.


    Click to expand


    The post mutated into an oft-cited copypasta, going on to appear in other threads on /v/,[4] and also on other 4chan boards, including /tv/, which has even seen threads requesting the pasta be posted.[5] On December 24, 2016, a copy of the post was submitted to r/copypasta.[6]
