Ooh, there's also the persistent storyline I have going in my head where every time Boots has to shout an all-caps post, the timing is such that his neighbors always hear him, either through the wall or outside as they walk by a window. Their entire familiarity with Boots is based upon overhearing him shout things at his computer monitor.

I'm mostly just glad we finally have a definitive answer on the identities of Catullus and Lesbia. I minored in Classics, this is the kind of thing that's funny to me.

For my part, callbacks to any of the PUA stuff (especially any variation on "points to schlong") always make me giggle like an idiot.

Also as for great recurring jokes:

- I don't know if this counts as a "running gag" or simply "the natural consequences of having Stog in the podcast," but all the "thanks Stog" moments make me smile.
 
- The Jimmyfranks curse, which will never be broken.

- Not a joke really, but I just wanted to say every time someone says "YAY VICTOR" is the best. Because YAY VICTOR!

The main problem is that the voice doesn't lend itself well to anything more than interjections or extremely short sentences. So far that's been, what, the slug and sasquatch?

"YES"

"THANK YOU"

"MUCH GOOD"

"FRIEND"

"WE SEE YOU COME"

That joke has so many layers, really. It also involves a recurring theme of people who approach the internet kind of like the oracle of Delphi. They have a problem, so they just scream that problem at the internet and expect an answer to materialize on their screen from some platonic realm of pure truth. Of course, what actually happens is that their question is answered by a bunch of idiots who mash their hands against a keyboard until words come out, because that's how the internet actually works.

Yeah, CanCon  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_content) regulations meant I had to put up with an awful lot of Snow airplay in the 90s. It's a thing that's never really going to leave my brain.

I really love when ridiculists turn the usual plug for ballp.it into something else or just straight up mocking the idea of plugging the forum.

Like when something about finding horny sluts (or something along those lines) was mentioned, Boots or someone immediately said "You can find them on Ballllllpit!" in a hilarious Lemon imitation.

Also every time someone makes fun of Lemon for pushing Flatter or whatever the heck that thing was they were making fun of him for.

It occurs to me that quite possibly my favorite running fplus gag is 'Lemon has ingested many illegal drugs.' Every once in a while he'll casually say 'hey that's an LSD tab, which I recognize' or 'hey, those aren't the symptoms of meth.' I don't know how much of this is character and how much of this is 'Lemon has ingested many illegal drugs' but I kind of love it.

Is it a callback if it just turns up on its own? Anyway, I love "sex power". I don't know what it is, exactly, but I long for "sex power".

The best thing about sex power is you don't need to know what it is, you just need to know how to increase it

Listening to some old episodes today, I remembered that I'm always tickled by a ridiculist (often Frank West) saying, "oh, wait, let me switch to my [girl/man/British] voice," and then not changing their voice at all.

I love that every person on the podcast can't do a British accent to save their life. Every attempt sounds like a linguistic tour of the Commonwealth and it makes me laugh every time.

It makes Lemon's sheer delight at first hearing the name "booger sugar" for cocaine at the end of the book reviews episode (213) that much more wonderful. x3

I don't know exactly how many times this has turned up, but on re-listening to some episodes I'm struck by Portaxx mentioning a Hanna-Barbera animated cartoon adaptation of something... more than I realized.

Sherman Tank Nachos, May 18, 2017, 10:15:43 pm

At the risk of doxxing his username used to have Citrus in it before he simplified it to Lemon, so people do that because it's what they called him for many years.

I love it whenever Lemon tries to set up a ballpit plug and the other person totally drops the ball, in part because it was precisely those shit plugs that made me check this place out.

Also anytime Bunnybread encourages STOG to act up.

While Frank West reading emoticons is always wonderful I'm just as consistently amused by the related recurring gag of Frank West having a monopoly on reading emoticons and threatening legal action whenever someone else on the podcast starts muscling in on his schtick.

Also the running gag about Frank West being on multiple government watchlists following F Plus Live 3. Frank West is just really good for running gags in general come to think of it...

-I don't have that problem. Goodbye!

It's been a while since its last appearance, but I'm a big fan of boots's Edith Bunker voice.  It was a nice surprise to hear it last ep.

-Any variation on "Lemon, puh-leeze don't doxx me!" when the ridiculists will imply they are the posters they read excerpts from. e.g. "Oh, we found Portaxx's account"
