Plebs get out.

Pleb” is a contracted form of the archaic word “plebeian,” originally used for a commoner belonging to a lower socioeconomic class in ancient Rome.  Online, the term is used for someone common, unsophisticated, or just currently uncultured, such as fans of the American televisual programme 24 and sexually-focused Sonic The Hedgehog aficionados.  “Pleb” also appears in British slang for “a common, vulgar person;” obviously any modern use of the label carries a pejorative connotation.    

The word can commonly (ha) be found flourishing in its natural habitat inside the human colon, on the tongues of every inbred inhabitant of the British Isles, and on 4chan’s /tv/ board, thusly within /whogeneral/ threads as well.  

In terms of Doctor Who and /who/, being branded a “pleb” is positively correlated with being ignorant of even the shallowest of the programme’s deep lore, dank memes and “going against the grain” so to speak of the conventional or received wisdom defining which stories, characters or devices on the programme are worthy of blinkered disgust or unrequited and frustrated lust.  

It behooves every fan of the programme to quickly and accurately determine if they are a dirty rotten pleb in hopes of alleviating such a debilitating and deeply embarrassing condition whilst improving one’s lot in life.  /WhoWiki/ therefore offers the following test or quiz that one might apply as a heuristic to either embrace one’s contretemps as the first of a series of goals to meet in search of a cure, or to grant one a well-deserved sigh of relief from being thoroughly insulted in front of everyone when posting in a /who/ thread. The following questions have been scientifically proven as a perfect distillation of core Doctor Who knowledge and learning.  Completing the quiz requires no complex maths such as by accumulating “points” to be summed or e-peen measurements; one either selects the correct if not obvious answer to each question, but should one make a mistake by choosing the improper option, they receive a red mark of shame upon their soul.  Those piteous mopes who fail the test can take hope as the answer key is included at the bottom of this page following the long empty gulf of interstellar space and the yawning maw of eternity, so placed as to thwart any possible cheating by scrolling down during test taking; there can be found each possible solution explained thoroughly to further educate the unenlightened aspirant.

Now then, please pick up your pencil and any scrap of fast-food wrapper nearby to begin the Pleb Test.
