Popular Twitch streamer and YouTuber “WoodysGamerTag” fell victim to one of the internet’s most classic memes during a November 29 broadcast – and the best part is, he had no idea he’d even been trolled.

If you’re an internet regular, you’ve likely heard of the net’s popular pranks that involve such turns of phrase as “sugondees,” “ligma,” and “sawcon,” among others (likely a descendant of the timeless “updog”).

These phrases, meant to bait unfortunate victims into saying less-than-savory expressions at their own (often humorous) expense, have become a near-viral sensation as of late – and one Twitch streamer fell prey to two of them in under 60 seconds’ time.

Broadcaster “WoodysGamerTag” was in the middle of a Jedi: Fallen Order stream when he received two donations that took advantage of his ignorance of the phrases, one of which framed the practical joke as a tip for the game.

“For real, why don’t you get some cool skills right after this planet?” the donation read. “When you reach ‘sugondees.’ There, you really start branching out into cool Jedi skills.”

Seemingly unaware of the prank, Woody continued his playthrough, giving the donator a distracted, “Gotcha,” in response.

That’s not all: a second donator continued the joke, playing on his unique side hobby of woodworking, which led to a hilariously wholesome answer from the oblivious streamer.

“Woody, when you were into woodworking, did you go to SawCon?” the donator asked.

“I don’t think so,” Woody replied in a genuinely innocent tone. “I don’t think I’ve heard of SawCon. I went to some – I went to two or three things, but they were all kinda local in North Carolina. But I don’t know SawCon.”

Thankfully, the streamer was finally made aware of the joke, after another donator wrote, “SawCon on these nuts” – but it remains to be seen if Woody actually realized the phrase was a total joke or not.

With streamers like “Pokimane” getting baited by Twitch’s classic “knocking prank,” it seems that audiences continue to have humorously wholesome relationships with their favorite personalities – although this one takes the proverbial cake of internet jokes.

Call of Duty

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
