'Cos if you do you just lost it

You dun goofed boi

PS: But in all seriousness, I'm actually interested in knowing whether people have heard from this ancient meme (and if so, when and where), given that I suspect that it'll be unknown for quite a few people.

I'm amazed this is still going around. I learned about this like a decade ago. (Also it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the thread title so that says a lot.)
Also, did anyone else hear the rule that you win if the current pope says "I lost the game" or variations thereof?
Or was that something unique to the bum-fuck-almost-nowhere-but-really-just-on-the-edge-of-every-nearby-somewhere town I lived in?

@Lieutenant_BooLieutenant_Boo I don't recall ever hearing that rule about the Pope to be honest, but given the weird nature of The Game it's not really that out there.

It's not too prominent, but one mention nowadays and many will grimace in anger.

There's a relevant xkcd comic about this.

I don't think I've heard of "the game" until today, but maybe I did a long time ago and forgot it. I did a bit of research and nobody really know when it started, but it's estimated it's origin could be all the way back in 1977! The earliest known reference to it on the internet is from 2002.

dont quote me on this my "research" was google.com

@TrenttheN642TrenttheN642 Then I'm afraid that seeing this again won't improve things either

@Lieutenant_BooLieutenant_Boo You forgot other alternatives, such as:

• Acquiring ELO ownership to appoint yourself as a moderator
• Hack into the servers to delete the post
• Perform black magic

...but on second thought, I guess I'd go with pushing the idea for forum mods as well. 🙂

I actually thought of buying out ELO (or getting the site from them) right after I posted that but I didn't care enough to edit my post or post again
