As millions of people from North America celebrate Thanksgiving 2019, Twitch star Dr Disrespect gave hilariously fitting advice for this year’s holiday celebration. 

Dr Disrespect continues to be one of the most popular personalities on Twitch, as his outrageously high production quality, and incredibly entertaining broadcasts have made him an icon.

This year has been monumental for him, as he recently won ‘Streamer of the Year’ at the Esports Awards in November, and as of this month is currently the most subscribed channel on the streaming platform.

Doc was in a festive mood for Thanksgiving and gave advice for the millions of people gathering around the dinner table with their family and loved ones, and it’s everything you would expect from the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect shares Thanksgiving advice

The Twitch star shared his advice for this year’s Thanksgiving on Twitter, and urged people to also thank themselves as well, as the holiday often revolves around giving thanks to others.

“Giving thanks to others is fine, but make sure you thank yourself. I do everyday. Multiple times,” the streamer exclaimed, which couldn’t be more in line with his character.

Doc also showed his sense of humor by referencing his E3 fiasco where he accidentally filmed in a public bathroom in July by taking a popular photo from the incident which had become a meme, and putting a pilgrim hat on it.

Hilariously, fellow streamer Timothy ‘TimTheTatman’ John Betar echoed Doc’s joke, and posted the actual gif of the E3 snafu that shows him peeking over the bathroom stall.

 

During his November 27 stream, the Two-Time had a hilarious moment with a fan who wrote in their description of Thanksgiving, to which the popular streamer stated was the “quote of the day.”

“Turkey, six pounds consumed minimum. Stuffing down their necks. Potatoes mashed. Wishbone, grab it and snap it. Quote of the day!” he joked.

Despite his E3 setback earlier this year, Dr Disrespect continues to crush it, and has clearly put it behind him judging by the running joke of the incident shown in his Thanksgiving advice.

Doc has a lot to be thankful this year, as not only does he have over 3.8 million followers and rising as of the time of writing, but he’s also currently the most subbed channel on Twitch.

Pepe the Frog: the internet’s most infamous meme explained

Pepe the Frog is one of the most well-known and widespread memes around, and over the decade and a half he’s existed, it’s also one of the most interesting stories the internet has to offer.

Created back in the long-long ago of 2005 by cartoonist Matt Furie, Pepe first appeared in a comic called Boy’s Club and wasn’t much more than a recurring character there for the first bit of his life.

It took a few years, but in 2008 memes featuring the amphibian started getting popular on MySpace and 4chan, with just a few variations in these early days like “sad” “smug” “angry” and various types of “feels”. It was certainly a much simpler time.

The “feels good” Pepe was one of the most common variations in the early days.

In the first half of the 2010s, Pepe only continued to grow in popularity and fame. Twitch, Twitter, Reddit, no matter where you went online it seemed like the frog was everywhere, but the good times couldn’t last. Controversy, that hasn’t gone away even today, was just on the horizon.

Pepe was originally created by Furie as having no political affiliation whatsoever but in the run-up to the 2016 United States Presidential election, he became a symbol for certain online groups and was labeled a “Hate Symbol” by various U.S. organizations, including the American Defamation League (ADL).

He’s still around today though, and that’s because the Pepe meme itself isn’t bigoted at all, but the context of use is an important consideration.

“Because so many Pepe the Frog memes are not bigoted in nature, it is important to examine the use of the meme only in context,” the ADL website says. “The mere fact of posting a Pepe meme does not mean that someone is racist.”

Just don’t test your luck throwing out frogs in Overwatch League chat, as the competition completely banned the meme back in 2018 (and even fines players caught using it to this day).

Different types of Pepe emotes

Really, you could write a book on all of the different variations that appear as emotes on Twitch alone, and that’s not even touching the countless “rare” Pepes that have been minted over the years either. To keep things simple, we’ll just focus here on some of the most common specimens you might encounter while browsing Twitch.

Feelsbadman

When Virtus.pro stops being Virtus.plow.

This is basically Pepe 101, a common reversal of the famous “feels good man.” Feelsbadman can be found all over Twitch when a streamer encounters something sad. Maybe the game you’re looking forward to still doesn’t have any updates? That’s a feelsbadman (looking at you, Overwatch 2).

PepeLaugh

Something funny? Throw a pepelaugh in chat.

If the name wasn’t enough to fill you in, this Pepe is barely able to contain his laughter. You’ll find it anytime something humorous happens on stream, or when chat knows something the streamer doesn’t.

MonkaS

monkasMonkas: perfect for when things get sketchy.

When things get tense, and the anxiety starts building, there’s no better emote to pull out then MonkaS. If you’ve ever wondered how it got its name, it’s actually really simple. On March 16th, 2016, Twitch user Monkasen uploaded the emote to the Better Twitch TV browser extension. Monka – for the user, and S – for scared.

PepeJam

pepeJAM: perfect for partytime.

When your tune comes on, or the Fallout music hits just right, you know it’s time for PepeJAM. Pretty straightforward here, with headphones over his ears, and animated versions have him bouncing up and down.

Poggers

It’s like pogchamp, but better.

At first glance you can probably guess the inspiration behind the ‘Poggers’ emote. That would be the longstanding ‘Pogchamp’ emote, that Twitch recently changed to feature a different streamer every 24 hours. It usually faces left, instead of right like the original emote, but animated versions can also be found flipping back and forth.

Honorable mention: Peepo (Apu Apujasta)

Despite a similar appearance, Peepo is NOT Pepe, they are two different frogs.

Peepo emotes seem to just keep getting more and more popular on Twitch since they started popping up in 2017 (and we can see why, as the little guy is undeniably cute). But a common misconception is that these are just poorly drawn Pepes. They’re not!

Peepo is instead a descendant, derived from the poorly drawn Pepe named Apu Apustaja (“Help Helper” in English) that first appeared on Finnish message boards before he made his way to Twitch. He can be used in just as many situations too, so expect to see plenty of him.


The humble internet frog Pepe has been on a wild ride over the last 15+ years, but he and his offspring like Peepo don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Even though the edgy Pepes will undoubtedly continue, it will be very interesting to see how the meme evolves by the time he reaches 30.
