Lol. Someone once synched up the whole "Leeeeeroy Jenkins" audio to an anime clip that was brilliant. I honestly don't know how they found it but the whole clip worked in perfect tandem with the audio. Funniest thing I'd seen in a long while.

You apparently don't know who Leroy is.

On the flip side, I don't consider the hype about him that funny either.

The sad thing is that Leroy Jenkins was part of a Jeopardy! clue once.  I believe it was during their college tournament last year.  I'm pretty sure the Jeopardy! clip is on YouTube someplace.

Yes, this means that Leroy Jenkins will become a part of Americana, or at least have some kind of cultish following.

It was fun playing at the WoW TCG Nationals and you'd hear it being yelled all day because one of the cards requires you to yell 'Leeeeeeroy Jenkins!' in order for the card's ability to work.

Made an otherwise fairly serious day pretty funny.

Of course not.. I just think it's funny that whenever someone shows some skin, we are all up in arms about it. The Janet Jackson nipple "slip" was a perfect example of how liberal our country is when it comes to the female body.
