(v) The practice of strategically using an oblique reference within your online profile, chat client, group tag or status message-du-jour, the understanding and appreciation of which is likely to require an extensive google search.
The cyberquivalent of Dennis Millering.
officially tallied Wit and Coup scores are dependent on the following conditions:
1. that the reference is sufficiently orthogonal to anything like "common knowledge"
2. that the particular point of the obscure reference is something cool
Extra scoring awarded if:
a) the reference constitutes a double entendre
b) the reference means something different to different people
Not to be confused with googlebating (which uses a whole other set of mouse fingers)
