A phrase from the late, lamented Dysfunctional Family Circus, which featured visitor-supplied captions of varying wit and crudeness to Bil Keane's Family Circus cartoons.

DFC editors voted submissions up or down based on how funny they were. One panel featuring one of the large-headed mutant children staring into the distance received the following submission:

whoa, im trippin my nut sack into a frenzy of dik play

This was sufficiently bizarre and non-sequitorial that, although the submission itself didn't make the cut, DFC readers were seized with inspiration. Variations on the phrase, such as im trippin my ass chip into a frenzy of linux play became a running gag throughout the remainder of the Dysfunctional Family Circus's life.
