Community·Posted on Apr 29, 202015 Weird Things We All Used To Do On Club PenguinTIP THE ICEBERG!by Abby ZinmanCommunity ContributorApproved and edited by BuzzFeed Community Team 1. Dressing like a “prep” to become popular. Club Penguin Diva sunglasses and the cheerleader outfit were A MUST if you wanted to be a prep. And if your penguin name wasn’t your own name with a bunch of numbers after it, were you really a true prep? 2. Trying as hard as you could to meet the Club Penguin Mascots, who seemed cool and famous but really didn’t do anything too special. Club Penguin Or discovering that a mascot was online, but not being able to meet them because the room or server was full. THE STRUGGLE. 3. Getting into fights with other penguins, and ending up getting banned for swearing. Club Penguin To all the people I yelled at for stealing my outfit or throwing a snowball at me, I am very sorry. Elementary school me was angsty. 4. Adopting dozens of Puffles, only to never care for them and leave them stranded in your Igloo. Club Penguin And, don't forget, sometimes you’d have to complete day-long quests just to get a rainbow or golden Puffle. 5. Begging your parents for HOURS on end to get you a membership, because there's no way you could be cool if you didn't spend hundreds of dollars. Club Penguin Moment of silence for those whose parents never bought them a membership. 6. Trying for hours on end to tip the Iceberg, only to be disappointed when it didn’t actually work. Club Penguin And I mean HOURS. We were hardworking construction workers with no reward of a tipped Iceberg. 7. Playing Card Jitsu until you finally got your black belt and defeated Sensei, and feeling like a total badass walking into the Ninja Hideout. Club Penguin And don’t get me started on Fire, Water, and Ice Card Jitsu. If you filled your amulet, you have all my respect. 8. Pretending to be a waiter at the Pizza Parlor, only to have your “customers” yell at you and forget to pay. Club Penguin My first job. (Cue a bunch of impatient penguins yelling "WAITER!!!") 9. Waiting all year for the Halloween and Christmas parties, which were more exciting than the holidays themselves. Club Penguin Free items, secret rooms, scary mazes, and sleigh rides? Count me in. 10. Dancing fearlessly in the Nightclub in efforts to find a penguin boyfriend or girlfriend. Club Penguin Raise your hand if you still have 10 online boyfriends you forgot to break up with in elementary school. 11. Working up the courage to send a red heart to your penguin S.O. once your relationship was ready to go to the ~next level~. Club Penguin In hindsight, this seems a bit creepy and questionable. Yep, something is definitely wrong here. Whatever, I guess that's true love for you. 12. Attending a party in someone's "iggy" (or fashion show, or restaurant, or school; the possibilities are endless), which was obviously advertised by a dancing penguin in the town. Club Penguin Throwing your first Club Penguin rager was a huge milestone. 13. Playing the fishing game OVER and OVER again, trying to catch Mullet. Club Penguin Only intellectuals knew how to catch him. 14. Walking into the Pet Shop to see tons of “pookies,” AKA Club Penguin babies, trying to be adopted. Club Penguin I have to be honest, I still don't understand what the hell pookies were. If you were a pookie back in the day, please explain to me what the purpose of screaming, "Pwease Mumu!" for hours on end was. 15. And lastly, at the beginning of every month, dropping everything you’re doing to check out the clothing and furniture catalogs to see if there are any cool or rare items that you MUST buy. Club Penguin And don’t forget spending hours trying to find secret items in each one.
