I'm trippin' my nut sack into a frenzy of dik play (idea)
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.
