Leeroy Jenkins March 16, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in life.
I’d seen this posted in various internet forums — usually referring to someone who went off half-cocked. But I never knew where it came from. I stumbled on a new community site by Microsoft the other day and they had a little “report” describing now they name got started. The two women can be a little annoying sometimes, but they have video of exactly how it started which is too funny and worth the 5 minutes it takes to run (probably only in a Microsoft format).
Wikipedia entry, with complete transcription of the dialog. Don’t read this until after you listen to the above report: robs you of some of the humor.
There is a website devoted to the Leeroy’s of the world: http://www.leeroyjenkins.net/
The WoW film posted on iFilm. Hard to understand unless you already know what is going on (or have seen the commentary in the report I mentioned above).
