    Defender, you can't be this dumb

    "What's up, doc?" was a regional expression of greeting made famous by Bugs Bunny. Nobody ever tricked someone by claiming that something smelled like "updoc". What are you talking about.

    Yes, that is correct. So by making a statement about "updoc," which is just "up" and "doc" run together, you trick the other person into asking "what's updoc?" and then respond as if they had used that regional greeting made famous by Bugs Bunny. Saying "it smells like updoc" or "you've got some updoc on your shirt" or "how much is a can of updoc" are all ways to start it.

    Changing "doc" to "dog" is a modernization, since people are now dogs instead of doctors, which is a societal flaw that is clearly the fault of the black people. Although not Bill Cosby, as he played a doctor on television. However, changing it takes away the pop culture reference to Bugs Bunny.

    Do you understand now? I might be able to break it down further for you. I think we're nearing the point where my sister would get it, but I might be able to dig deeper.
    There is no traditional response to "What's up doc?" that references Bugs Bunny, so I think you're wrong.

    The specific response isn't important. The point is the same as the schoolyard "homosayswhat" gag, in that you've tricked the person into saying something they didn't realize intend to or even realize they were saying. Besides, there's no specific, expected, traditional response to "what's up dog?" either.

    EDIT: You'll notice in the post your replied to that I showed several ways of getting "What's up doc?" out of the other person. The whole thing is that you made them say the line unwittingly, plus it's a pop culture reference because of how Bugs Bunny basically owned the phrase. Changing it to "dog" just removes the pop culture reference.
    "Nothing dawg, what's up with you?" is an accepted response to that question, and it lets the person in on what they just said. With "What's up, doc?" you basically have to wait for them to realize that they're turning into a 6-foot tall gray bunny eating half a carrot.

    The response that Jim gave, "not much, what's up with you" works exactly as well against "doc" or "dog." Although if the person does morph into an anthropomorphic rabbit or dog, I guess that changes it from a joke to, like, a...spell.

    It's not a big deal at all, probably even to the people who are talking about it. But as I said, they seem to enjoy it enough to keep it up, and I would like them to have fun.

    Yes it was. So awesome. That show (And Freaks and Geeks) gave a lot of cool people their starts. Or at least inertia to keep going.

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=updoc

    I guess that would be the most formal, official documentation other than just knowing that "what's up dog?" is clearly a newer phrase than "what's up doc?"

    Also, and I have this from good source (colored folk), it's "what up, dog," not "what's up, dog."
