@Alexis (but also real talk I think poggers may be one of the racist frog emotes)

re: lex is behind on slang 

@The_T I've decided not to wonder why Charles Entertainment Dairyproduct is a streamer now.

If it's a Pepe I'm not touching it with a ten-foot (tad)pole.

@The_T@elekk.xyz @Alexis@beepboop.one Nah the base is some guy's face, it was adapted from there into the frog with a different name iirc

re: lex is behind on slang 

@purplemontart @Alexis as far as I know, pogchamp is the original and poggers is the nazi frog version.

re: lex is behind on slang 

@The_T @purplemontart *actually googles it* Oh, PogChamp is what the excited fellow from Twitch chat is called.

And the frog version sure does /look/ like a Pepe, and unless Matt Furie is on board, I'm Against It.

re: lex is behind on slang 

@Alexis @purplemontart I mean it looks like a badly drawn pepe

Its not an official twitch emote, it's part of a (shitty) unofficial extension called betterttv. So if you don't have the extension, you'd only see the word poggers in chat and no face. So that's probably how Chuck e cheese and others saw it.

re: lex is behind on slang 

@The_T @Alexis @purplemontart the reason the pepe version is called that is because "poggers" was already slang, it's not where the term came from

re: lex is behind on slang 

@monorail @Alexis @purplemontart good to know then!

re: lex is behind on slang 

@monorail @The_T @purplemontart what's the, like. what does the word mean. what does it mean when the teens say "poggers"

re: lex is behind on slang 

@Alexis @monorail @purplemontart they say poggers when something is poggers

re: lex is behind on slang 

@purplemontart @monorail @The_T remember when new words had Meanings, and weren't just, like

sounds you make when life goes ever onward

re: lex is behind on slang 

@purplemontart @monorail @The_T damn, way to call me out for just wanting to remind people of World of Warcraft

re: lex is behind on slang 

@Alexis@beepboop.one @The_T@elekk.xyz So, from a not very deep dive, because I honestly despise Twitch as a platform, use of poggers is basically non-political but "ever changing", as if Twitch is a unique atmosphere or some bullshit

re: lex is behind on slang 

@purplemontart @Alexis that's what they say about every nazi frog tho and they still nazi frogs

re: lex is behind on slang 

@The_T @purplemontart i mean, Gamers also insist they want to keep Politics Out of Games, but then Call of Duty consistently does a best-sell and Nintendo is for babies. (fools, I say)

@The_T @purplemontart @Alexis I though pogchamp was the chess tournament thing? Maybe it was just named after it. (in my day we called them flippochamps)

@kurt @The_T @purplemontart That's only if they're from the Flippochamps region of France, if they're not they're just "colourful branded discs."
