Tools of the Trade

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ

These fine gentlemen, usually referred to as the "lenny" and "donger" faces, accurately depict the 14th-century noblemen Sir Leonard "Panty Destroyer" Archibald XII and the Dank Duke of Donger, respectively. Both men were known to be excellent military commanders who were put in charge of the difficult task of defending their homeland from an invading enemy army. As the story goes, both men charged into battle without a second thought, lacking precautions, with only the armor on their backs, the swords in their hands, and the dankness in their memes. They died shortly after that, though, like, really violently, with blood and stuff. However, the Duke's last words and war cry, "Raise your dongers!," were sewn into the fabric of history for centuries after his death. To honor Sir Leonard and the Duke's sacrifice, some users tend to enlighten the PS Lobby chat by reciting the Duke's dying words in rapid succession.

Assault Vest

You know what they say: Assault Vest is the Assault Best. They don't use this saying lightly, though; the Assault Vest is an absolute must for any serious competitive Pokémon battler who wants to go anywhere in their career. The Assault Vest adds a fashionable flair to any Pokémon while upping its competitive viability. The item is great on Pokémon that need to take hits when battling; some good examples are Doublade, Zweilous, and other relatively frail NFE Pokémon that, in general, need their defensive capabilities boosted.

i am a heron

John 3:16: "i am a heron. i haev a long neck and i pick fish out of the water w/ my beak. if you dont repost this comment on 10 other pages i will fly into your kitchen tonight and make a mess of your pots and pans." For some background knowledge on this particular meme, that famous biblical proverb is referring to the pope's personal service heron. As the story tells it, the heron was bitten by a feral raccoon and contracted several different strands of herpes at once. It then responded by making a mess out of the pope's pots and pans in a fit of rage. John recounted the event as clear as day, but due to the fact that the line is written from the heron's own perspective, some biblical scholars are led to believe that "John" is actually a codename for the heron and that the heron actually wrote the Bible.

9 + 10

A mathematical fallacy which has puzzled even the most intellectual minds on the planet, the case of 9+10 has yet to be solved with full confirmation from the scientific community. The question of 9+10 was first raised by famous intellectual mind Isaac "Party Poppa" Newton, and ever since then, no answer could be conjured up for the problem. However, when Albert "Big Daddy at da Club" Einstein came along, he proposed the theory that 9+10 equals 21. This was truly ground-breaking, especially for the time in which this theory was introduced. Most scientists and mathematicians outright rejected this idea. The debate has been as heated as ever since then.

The Lobby

The Lobby's purpose in the grand scheme of things is to function as a breeding ground for new memes. In the Lobby, intellectuals come from all four corners of the globe to combine their might and wisdom to craft new memes for the rest of the world to enjoy. Take caution while approaching the Lobby, though, as many notable scholarly figures and various super-intelligent people roam the area; it may be difficult to understand their high level of intellectual discussion. Remember, staff members absolutely love it when the server is overflown by epic dank memers. They know very well that dank memes are vital for livening up the chat and improving the room's quality tremendously. However, there are those staff members that set out with one and only purpose: to annihilate all memers from the chat and to purge the server of any and all dankness. These types of staff members are what I like to call "dorks."
