However, in the episode "Nimrods Are Forever," the douchequake was retired due to the massive earthquake in Japan. It was brought back in "Good and Evil", just in time for Nash to learn of the existence of crotchless panties for children.
On the 8/13/12 live show, Nash and JO did an a cappella rendition.
"WE GOT VIDEO! :D" [cut to footage of aforementioned atrocity]
Stories involving people abusing bath salts. Nash even claims it's a conspiracy.
Various things, especially nudity and Florida, being in Nash and Tara's "wheelhouse". Although a town called Beaverton (And by extension, the rest of the Portland, Oregon area) appears to be challenging Florida as of late. Nash's hatred of Florida was referenced in the title card for an Atop the Fourth Wall episode, where Linkara was reviewing a comic featuring a Florida Orange Juice mascot. Nash didn't appear in the review, but the title card has him choking the mascot angrily.
Nash's hatred of Florida has also crossed over into other internet videos, where in the Smart Way Out simulation league for WWE 2K15, a wrestler based on Nash fought a representative of Florida: Hulk Hogan. AND NASH WON.
It's now an oft-repeated rule that "Nobody wants to see your dick, and there is nothing sexy in the Wal-Mart." The first part is said when men often strip naked when they go crazy and show their dick to everybody in the vicinity, and the latter is said when sexual shenanigans happen in the Wal-Mart.
The newest rule is "Just Watch Porn." This is said when stories involve people trying to masturbate to weird things or they attempt to have sex with inanimate objects to get rid of their morning wood.
"That doesn't go there," or reminding people not to shove items (usually guns, or bags of drugs) up one's vagina or anus.
There's also "The old drugs still work," usually used in response to someone doing something stupid while high on bath salts and/or MDMA.
"A gun is not a remote control for life," in response to someone using or pointing a gun at someone else to get them to do whatever they want.
"Don't stuff things down your pants," said in response to numerous people stuffing food, clothes, items and other items down their pants in order to shoplift those items from the store.
Another rule is "Don't go down the chimney", which is a reference to people somehow thinking that going down a chimney to enter the house is a good idea.
Yet another rule is "Home is not safe plate" which is the tendency for amateur shoplifters and criminals to attempt to get away from the police by going to their house, and claiming the police cannot enter the house because its their home, like Grand Theft Auto. Usually, they are proven wrong the hard way.
Another rule is "Use the gun first" in robbery and shoplifting stories, when amateur robbers attempt to rob a store/restaurant/bank/business with a ridiculous weapon, then also claim they have a gun in the same breath, leading to the robbery being botched and them being arrested.
"Don't leave your personal details behind" is another one relating to robbers, as criminals often leave their wallets, ID cards, kids and other personal items behind at the scene of a crime.
Another often repeated rule when relating to crime is "The police is not your friend", in response to stories where criminals attempt to flag down the cops for help despite them committing a crime....
Tara's horror stories from her life, frequently concerning her former jobs at Spencer Gifts and Sephora.
Weird and destructive car crashes because of either pizza or beer.
People caught masturbating in public.
Ridiculously inappropriate things made for children/people being careless and irresponsible towards their kids. Even Nash, who admits he doesn't have much fondness for children, has this as a Berserk Button.
Became a Discredited Meme for a while, as Tara lived with her sister and nephew who are both in bed during the show for a few months. Nowadays she's back in her own place and the DOH has made a triumphant (oh, God) return.
The DOH now has a companion, a dancing full-bodied female hippo that sings a hug-related remix of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back". Nash reacted accordingly.
Since Nash has moved into his new place, insistence (at first from JO, and then from the chat post-break-up) that he close the door to the bathroom behind him have ascended to this.
Tara loves referencing Mystery Men, namely the line, "Maybe you should put some shorts on or something, if you want to keep fighting evil today."
"Fucking Alanis Morisette!" whenever Nash can't tell if something is actually ironic or not.
Tara having never seen famous movies. Although this is a Running Gag on the internet in general.
Todd in the Shadows usually requests an obnoxious pop song to Troll the show each week. Nash always plays his request, no matter how bad it is. It also leads to people in the chat screaming "Dammit, Todd!" for particularly egregious songs, whether Todd is behind them or not. Similarly Nash's producer Mike, in exchange for his services, gets Free Rein For Life on whatever bizarre musical requests he wants to make.
In retaliation to certain really bad, baffling, or earwormy requests (again, frequently triggered by Todd or Mike), Nash will follow up the offense by playing Tom Jones' "What's New, Pussycat?" eleven times in a row, with a single play of "It's Not Unusual" somewhere in the middle.note It's a reference to this comedy routine. He's also been known to punish bad music with "Muskrat Love" or Crazy Frog.
*kickshot* whenever Dodger (one of the chat mods) kicks someone for all-caps or being a dick.
The abuse of 'Purple Shotgun' (the chat's safe word) on any Mind Screw or disturbing video.
When they switched from Skype to Google Hangouts for the show, Tara abusing the soundboard feature.
Either Nash or Tara (or both) complaining about how young the show's audience is, and how old they both are.
Tara: "Our audience is fetuses"
After Tara's move, anytime Miracle the Cat was placed within camera range, she would figure out increasingly ridiculous ways to very conspicuously avoid the camera. These included looking in any direction but at the camera itself, scooting herself to the back of her "kitty tower" until she was offscreen, kicking Tara, and emitting loud grunts.
It also seems to be a running gag that a massive brawl seems to always happens at a Chuck E Cheese, during a kids birthday party. Bonus points if from Florida.
In the past few months, Nash has taken to say, following a particularly dumb story either in WTFIWWY or Tech Q&A, "I mean... I mean... I mean!!" (with an accent, "ah meen... ah meen..."), almost becoming a new Catch-Phrase.
