A derisive term for a hilarious joke that got posted to discussion boards or email lists too many times, by people that apparently post jokes themselves but never actually read anybody else's posts.
Originated from a large company's humor email list where approximately seven people posted, in a single day, Google Map's directions from NYC to Paris, which states that Step 23 is to swim across the Atlantic Ocean.
you: Dude, check out this link to a crazy dramatic chipmunk!
me: Yea, and be sure to check out step 23, it's hilarious.
me: And it's a hamster, nimrod.
A step in a process that dwarfs all other steps in the process in magnitude and/or complexity.
Originated from Google Maps in which a request to "Get directions" from New York to Paris yields 39 steps, 38 of which are simple driving directions with step 23 being swimming three-thousand four-hundred and sixty-two miles across the Atlantic Ocean.
If you want to become president you must choose a name to run under. Also you must choose your campaign slogan. Step 23 is to get tens of millions of Americans to vote for you.
