He has become derp, the dumberer of worlds.

Derpy!

Sounds like he has a case of Derpes Simplex II, likely caused by excess sand in his vagina.

Is "Whargarbl" still okay?
 
2013-06-05 07:31:03 AM
It's more a case of not being able to turn off the computer because the best metaphor for internet culture is a retard petting a rabbit to death.

We'll stop using derp when you stop using creepy animated gifs as your Gawker profile picture.

I try, but each time I read something in the politics tab, I can't resist.

My day is instantly better.

In part because I'm 30 minutes away from going to bed.

We can't stop it Sir. Teh Dirp is approaching universal langhuuuuuage.

Reddit managed, somehow, to make it less funny

Reddit makes everything less funny. Why does he seem shocked by their ability to do that?

Came for this, left with creepy satisfaction.

Or did I?

Derp off, derpstick.

All your derp, are belong to herp.

Well if some douchebag wants us to stop using it I guess we have no choice.
 
2013-06-05 07:52:44 AM
Sounds like he needs to change his tampon.

TFA mentions that the word derp makes people sound like idiots, but I thought that was the whole point of the term, either as self-deprecating humor (as in most rage comics) or to mock someone as unthinking (as in the Politicss tab). I'm not much of a fan either, but I can't say that I find TFA's arguments compelling.

Max read doesn't abbrieviate! In his name, each letter is as important as the one that preceded it. Maybe even *more* important... No, *as* important. And if there's any room left, add a bunch of exclamation points and a pirate flag!
 
2013-06-05 07:53:53 AM
First they came for the butthurt, and I said nothing.

Did Sarah Palin get exclusive rights to that word?
 
2013-06-05 07:57:22 AM
With as few four letter words as there are, I'm surprised it took this long for "derp" to take on meaning.

Oh, and the author is just writing a bunch of herpity derpity whargarble woo.

I'm on the fence about this one. I don't have any problem with slang; people can use "derp" or whatever they want in places like fark threads or in casual conversation. But when journalists start using it I have an issue. There should be distinctions made between formal writing and casual communication. Journalists should be calling attention to this line and, if anything, making it more clear rather than blurring it.

In a somewhat related note, I can't stand it when people use a word incorrectly and then claim that it is proper English because "language is evolving." No it isn't, you just don't know what the word means. My sister-in-law does this all the time. She tries to use words she doesn't understand. She recently said of her boss, "He's such an ineptitude."  Someone corrected her and she argued as long as we understood her point, it didn't matter how she used the word. Drives me nuts.

Sorry for the rant; it's early.

"derp" is one of the stupidest farking things ever to originate from the internet, right up there with calling literally anyone and anything "hipster"
 
2013-06-05 08:07:01 AM
His writing... his writing style... drives me.  Nuts.  It drives me nuts.  Because you don't start sentences with "because" or "or".  Or at least you don't write a 358 word rant and pass it off as an article.

I saw a sweatshirt today that had "DERP" (and nothing else) on the back. I was tempted to ask its wearer who he voted for in the last election.
