"It's all in the wiggle"
is the unofficial motto
of various userfriendly
teams (fans of the comic strip
who get togeather in through IRC
s to participate in things such as charity
events, lan parties
and the distributed.net RC5
challenge). This refers to the cartoon
on February 13, 1998
of the real life gamer Zoid
) at a game of Quake
. The cartoon goes as follows:
Panel 1: AJ and Mike are standing behind Dustpuppy at a computer.
- AJ: "Do you think you can actually beat Zock? He's really good."
- Dustpuppy: "I dunno. Guess I'll have to try."
Panel 2: "wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle" (Dustpuppy's foot on the computer mouse, as he has no hands, the little guy plays Quake with his foot).
Panel 3: Zock appears on the right of the panel.
The joke being of course that it is the dust puppy's wiggling that let him beat the almighty Quake God Zock.

The phrase, both because of it's reference in the strip and it's possible sexual connotations, was adopted by UFies (fans of the userfriendly comic strip). It graces some UF clothing and paraphernalia, including the original run of baseball caps.
