Just what is the Llama thing?

Sodom and Gomorrah Sodom and Gomorrah
Yo! Now i'm curious. I know I've used it myself too. I take it that the Llama thing on polls is an inside joke? How did it originate? Does anybody know?

Llamas invaded EF. Tried to become our overlords. People died. It was a gruesome thing. There's now an underground sect of llama worshippers, who use the polls to communicate with their underground llama overlord. Like asking which snacks it wants. What porn DVDs it wants, etc..

...this. We seriously need a "favorite post" button. x'D
I don't know how or where the llamas started their hostile takeover of the internet, but they've taken control on dA too.

Llamas are pretty cool creatures, but the llama thing is an age-old internet meme that I brought over from a different community I used to participate in - I've always felt polls were a little on the boring side and so now I add something llama related instead of the ubiquitous "other" option.

It caught on and now others do it, too. So yeah, I guess you could say it's an inside joke, but one without any real meaning. (The truth is always tre boring, eh?)

One of my friends has entitled her LiveJournal since 2006 - "The Hinkypunk Chicken War Chronicles: The Mystery of the Misplaced Llama".

I love the llama thing - it's surreal and cute. And my ex-husband hates them because they remind him of camels, so I like them.

Being from a french speaking area, I have no real idea of what this whole llamas thing is, just saw it in different places on the net. I would like to know more though (like, exactly what it means?), because that expression was a the origin of a very sad misunderstanding between me and an english speaking friend of mine...

I couldn't tell you the real origin, but llamas probably became popular online simply because "llama" is, at least for English speakers, just a really fun and silly-sounding word. It probably helps that it's the name of a peculiar but sort-of pretty/cute animal. In most cases it doesn't refer to anything other than the animal in question.

... but how is it used? I know what a llama is... but is it used instead of saying "whatever"? Or instead of saying some other things? That's the way it is used that I am not sure of... some concrete examples would be great!

Llamas as choices on a poll.

Blaming the llamas for something that happened.

Making up stories about llamas to entertain each other.

They're just sort of used as a totally random element around here.

By the way, folks - we need an official llama herder for the next EF holiday party! We managed to keep them out for the 10th Anniversary Party because Gary was standing at the door, but we may not be so lucky next time. *evil llama smiley*

What about someone who would say " I have to let behind someone special and it makes me sad" and friend would reply "who is it?" and the someone would answer "a llama" (as a joke, of course...) "llama" used in that way, would it mean "that is none of your business" or "forget it, I won't tell you" or "it was nothing important" or ... "that person was literally a llama" or "that person was no more than a llama" ... or.... ??? What would be your guess about that?
