    On my server we had a guild called Huggies, who reformed under a new name after everyone called them the pampers guild...

    And their guild leader is a dick from what I've seen and heard.

    Let's be honest. Outside of PvP and raid encounters, WoW is so braindead that a macro could play it. This isn't necessarily WoW-specific; most MMOs have PvE content that is similarly unengaging, but seeing a stoner succeed isn't particularly surprising.

    Now, seeing a stoner succeed in PvP? That would be impressive!

    Umm, smoking pot does not greatly diminish one's gaming skills.

    I think he was more amazed at the fact he reached 73 without his name being changed.

    No, but it seems to greatly diminish one's not telling everyone in earshot about it skills.

    Just perusing Dragonblight when I ran into this duo questing together:

    Then, as I was alt tabbing to post it here, this guy popped up out of nowhere, with not only a gem of a name, a very inticing guild recruitment message:

    Best guild names on my server:

    <the Joker died IRL>
    <Lincoln wiped on Opera>

    Coolest names:
    a guy 5 boxing elemental shamans whose names are Shamanalalala and variations of such.
    Pieman [he really likes pie]

    Question about Armory... Sometimes it shows guild names, and sometimes it doesn't. What's up with that?

    I would do that whole "fix'd" thing, but it's annoying.

    The armory doesn't update ever sometimes. I think it had my hunter in the wrong guild for like 4 months.

    My least favorites are the plethora of guys named things like "Unknownrouge" and "Deathrouge". Gets me every time.

    I've seen it update immediately on occasion, but it more often updates slowly than quickly.

    Generally it only updates on proper logouts. That means no exit, no clicking x, nothing, just a logout will force it.

    I had a habit of hitting X and it my armory didn't update for almost a month straight. I was still 70 for the longest time on the armory.

    I will refer back a few pages to the anti-japanese name thing.

    When I rolled my rogue years back, I did a google for "famous swordsmen" or somesuch, and figured the founding father of Iaido would be appropriate for a burst damage class. Thus, "Jinsuke" the undead rogue. This was before the term "weeaboo" was quite as universally used.

    I frequently contemplate paying $10 to change it just to stop hearing the word "weeaboo" directed at me, but my friends have vetoed this because they couldn't say "moar liek jinsucky m i rite" when I do something stupid.

    Think carefully before you pick your character names, people.

    Edit: Also I'd like to give a shout out to <Indifference of Good Men> for best horde guild name on mal'ganis.

    You mean French for shade or shaded.

    The picture isn't much of an answer anyway. Basically a weeaboo is someone who likes Japanese things "a little too much".

    I think it was an awful typo because in Spanish it's Sombre.
    Maybe he transposed the "s" to the end.

    Pretty sure the comic predates the definition anyways.

    It was just a nonsense word for the strip, then some forum somewhere turned it into a meme.

    I would like the guild name <My other mount is yo mom> but I don't think I could get away with that. Alas, the misspelling would be necessary due to the character limit.

    Probably, but I would rather level my DK then hang around a city asking for signatures.

    And then when the person turns you down you would call them a kid and invite again. And when they /ignore you, that leads you to switching to your alt so you could insult them again.
