Hey everyone. We are trying to create an easy reference for all the Dtoid memes that have happened on the forums or cblogs. So, post in this thread with links to where the memes started (or a recap page if it's huge) and I'll keep this first post updated so we (and editors) have a quick reference.
Thank you for your help!

Who the fuck is Jim Sterling?From a comment RonBurgandy2010 left to Nintendoll saying "I always thought that you redefined adorable " in this cblog .
Also,CocksWho the fuck is Jim Sterling? First posted after Jim Sterling made his Destructoid debut, because nobody knew who the hell he was. Jim's name is often replaced with other people when we don't know who they are, or when community people become editors and start using their real names.
AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZINGAlmost a non-sequitir to be used at the end of posts, it has since become the unofficial motto of Destructoid, been plastered on T-shirts, and been modified to incorporate whatever the subject matter may be.
Yard saleThe catchphrase of one Chad Concelmo, to be used when things are well, really amazing.
STFUAJPGWhenever something comes out on Xbox Live, especially a shoot em up, Topher proclaims we are having a yard sale in RetroforceGO!, and you should pay heed.
Look, I drinkShut the fuck up and just play games. It means what it says. Usually used when people are complaining about something incessantly or being super-annoying.
PancakesRon Workman used to start most, if not all of his posts with this phrase
Are you guys making fun of my avatar?Saying "Pancakes" will end all drama and arguments. It's just law
Nex is going to be a fatherwas started when Nex changed his avatar to a pic of him wearing headphones and sunglasses, and quite a few community members changed their own avatar to rib him since it was pretty silly looking.
You Must Provide Beast and LocationNex bullshitted the entire community several times with this fake announcement
Mexicans aren't people, they can't work their stolen iPodson an early Podtoid Workman did a dramatic reading of a Craigslist ad about a guy who wanted to engage in some anonymous bestiality
Forums are that way ->another Podtoid gem by Workman that ended up causing a lot of drama and accusations of racism by people who don't have a sense of humor and are unable to tell when people are making ridiculous statements that weren't intended to be taken seriously
We have forums? -For the longest while before the forums matured onto their own(and for a good while after), many of the older users of Destructoid would post a simmilar comment on the failblog posts of newer users(such as comment #1 here). While it was meant to control the quality of the C-blogs, eventually, it only served to piss off the forum regulars. Sometimes though, this has been seen used in promotion of the forums(such as comment #2 here.)
Quail Futon -A year after the community blogs started, people almost completely stopped going to the forums, and when talking about it in an episode of Podtoid, Ron Workman went "Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa. We have forums?" jokingly, referring to the fact that the forums were near barren.
Hounestly -One day, someone (either Coonskin or Ron Workman) was talking about Qais Fulton (http://www.destructoid.com/blogs/Qais+Fulton) and jokingly referred to him as Quail Futon.
Christian Bale -(check the comments, for a message from Neonie, the accidental creator of the hounestly meme, perpetuated by Riser Glen.)
Psh, Semantics -Prior to the release of The Dark Knight, Riser Glen made a blog post about how Christian Bale was God, and the community promptly accepted the idea, communally converting to the newfound religion of Baleism, celebrating his birthday yearly, creating Photoshops with his head in the clouds i.e. Monty Python & The Holy Grail, and defending his every move. As they should.
Talladega Nights -Of course, everyone knows of Nex, a former Dtoid editor. One day, someone corrected one of his acclaimedly "holier-than-thou-and-seething-with-intellectualism" articles, and he replied with "Psh, semantics." Coonskin promptly repeated this, as did the rest of the comment thread.
Will Arnett's gamertag is Roncore - That's where it all started, second comment.The first bundle ever for the PS3 was one that included the PS3, a Blu-Ray remote, and Talladega Nights, a movie panned by critics and consumers alike. Someone promptly commented something along the lines of "FUCK YEAH TALLADEGA NIGHTS" and the community continued the joke, adding things along the lines of "THE POWER OF BLU-RAYS".
I'm sorry, Colette -
"I'm About To Whip Somebody's Ass -Someone said they weren't into Colette, and people jumped on him. They responded "I am sorry Colette, it is not that you are unattractive, but I am not looking for you right now. A wordy and skinny woman is not what I want right now." Or something like that.
"God told me I sucked, so I started a blog." -Whenever a "gay rave" started in Stickam, Ron would play this song, leading people to dance, occasionally with flashing lights. The song is originally a remix of a monologue sent to Ze Frank. Here's an MP3 of the song.
World Famous Robert Summa:A while back, whenever you were logged into the site, but hadn't yet made a cblog post, you just saw a message saying "You suck, start a blog. - God". A lot of newcomers then posted blogs with a title along the lines of "God told me I sucked, so I started a blog.", and after it became increasingly annoying, community members began to troll the aforementioned posts, until Niero changed it.
Is ____ ending because Jim is moving to America?When Robert Summa still wrote for Destructoid, he was on Stickam one night with Ron Workman, drunk, talking about his appearance on G4, and how it was seen all over the world. Someone in the room proclaimed that he was World Famous, and it became a big joke, even having his name changed on the site to "World Famous".
Calvin's Pink Hat -Anyhow, this originated back when Jim announced he was moving to America on Podcastle(I can't remember exactly which episode this started in though). Since then, he'd get one listener question or more roughly every episode asking if the Podcastle would be ending because he is moving to America. This persisted even after Jim had moved to America, up to the final episode of Podcastle.
It's Electric! -CannibalCalvin once danced near-naked on Stickam, with only a pink hat on his head.
Petal Rear Squalid Door -Once upon a time, I was absolutely fucking stupid, and decided "hey, why don't I take off my shirt and dance?" It was then set to Marcia Griffith's "Electric Boogie" by tehurberone, because my name is electro lemon, even though originally, I was dancing to Hungry Like The Wolf.
Epic credits -Ron Workman once made a post where he "confirmed" that MGS4 was coming to the 360. Although there was no solid proof, people quickly claimed that it was bullshit, and that Kojima would never let a MGS game go to Microsoft. Ron took photographs of the GameCube and Xbox MGS games in retaliation, and was quickly served a cease & desist from Konami. Upon that, every mention of the game Metal Gear Solid 4 was renamed to "Petal Rear Squalid Door", to leave the idea of the game in the post, while complying with Konami's C&D. This post was the very first to receive over 1000 comments, as it caused much controversy for Dtoid. (http://www.destructoid.com/-cease-an...y--31775.phtml)
Cashwh0re -Ron Workman made a video where he discussed the differences between the Xbox 360 and the Xbox 360 Elite prior to its release, and though the video was a joke, at the end, he added "epic credits" where he called out community members and joked about them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrezR4GPbCQ
