Well, I'm off to a good start huh? Already got my nerdy reference in in the frakking title. I've been meaning to write a blog like this for a long long time, and people have often (wrongly) assumed I'm creative and funny. Well, I'll let the people decide that for themselves.
First thing, what is "derp." I'm pretty sure it originated with the show South Park and the character of Mr. Derp from the episode "Succubus" (Season 3, Episode 3). That was the first time I remember hearing it. Here's a clip:
Anyway, this is from 1999. I think the phrase got uttered a few more times in the years since, but my friend and I started using it as an exclamation sometime in there, probably 2000 or so. "Derp" for us came before any of this "win" and "fail" stuff. Derp was when something was so dumb, stupid, or out right ridiculous it made you laugh like Phil Ken Sebben, a harsh, quick, and derisive chuckle...the result of blowing a funny fuse even. Derp is versatile enough to be used in place of oaths and swears. I am pretty sure that "derp" is encoded in our DNA because even my 10 year old cousin gets it. This blog is dedicated to bringing BITING, WITTY ANALYSIS (derp) of all those Derp-tastic moments in our world.
Stay frosty, people....this could get nasty.
