People complaining about Leroy Jenkins haven't died yet?

Give me a break. Whether you tired of the initial joke is irrelevent. Watching Alex Trebek read the clue is still funny.

Yeah, trying being named Leroy and putting up with it. It's beyond annoying.

How big of a dork am I? I've actually "met" Leeroy Jenkins (in-game). He's SO DREAMY.

Well, at least your last name isn't Jenkins. I can understand it like Dave Chappelle getting tired of people yelling "I'm Rick James, bitch" at him. However, he probably wouldn't open and post in a thread called "I'm Rick James, bitch makes it to Jeopardy".

It's not worth it if you haven't heard of it. Just some "funny" internet moment of the week a while back. I was just surprised to see it mentioned on Jeopardy.

I was thinking the same thing. I was just too scared to post it though because I didn't want to be the only moron who had never heard of Leroy Jenkins.

That's because it's not. The dude runs into the cave or instance or whatever, and gets all his friends killed while yelling LEEEROOOOY JENKINS at the top of his lungs. It was funny the first few seconds. After the 10th time the "leader" of the group says "Christ", it's not funny anymore.

I thought it was interesting that something like that made it on Jeopardy.

EDIT: Although it probably didn't need it's own thread and could have just gone in the WoW thread with people that actually know the reference.

The moment itself isn't exactly the biggest funny thing. It's the whole situation. A pally going for devout shoulders so he can "heal better." The guild's name PALS 4 LIFE. And each individual name of each character being just a regular name. Among other things, all of those going in into one just made it quite amusing.

That was great. The whole Leroy thing still cracks me up. What kind of kids are those not being down with the WoW? Who actually studies in college? LOSERS!
