On April Fools Day of 2007, community manager/forum moderator Tseric of the WoW forums pretended to be a full-blown forum troll. Almost every topic in the general forums got a short response from him simply saying, "lol wut." Since then, "lol wut" has become a catch phrase between WoWfags, and also as a test for marijuana intoxication.
This eventually became an image macro based on the surrealist digital painting "The Biting Pear of Salamanca" by Ursula Vernon ( ). The furry photographer at the bottom of the original picture is mostly cropped out. (The artist kindly requests that you thieving motherfuckers stop trying to sell the pear picture on t-shirts without at least giving her a cut.)
As of 02/06/08 the LOL WUT Pear has been recognized by the staff of DevianTART as one of the greatest works to have graced the site.
