About

Good Plan, Duke! refers to a series of user-created drawings on a dry-erase board in Gearbox Software’s Duke Nukem Forever. As the name suggests, the drawing that the user creates game is complimented by another character in the game, regardless of what the drawing represents.

Origin

The joke originates from the first level of Duke Nukem Forever[1], in which operatives of the Earth Defense Forces ask for Duke Nukem’s input for “Operation Cock Block”, a plan to destroy the Cycloid Emperor in the vicinity written on a dry-erase board. The player can then draw any addition to the plan or erase the previous plan entirely in favor of a different drawing. No matter what is added or removed from the picture, the EDF will be impressed with Duke’s creativity.

Spread

On June 3rd, 2011, YouTube user Morph uploaded a video of the Duke Nukem Forever demo showing his own additions to the dry-erase board.[2] The video has over 649,000 views as of February 2014, along with over 2,800 “Likes”. Eventually, the video inspired other users to upload videos of themselves drawing images on the dry-erase board (see “Notable Examples”). On the same day, user KevinLongtime on the Gearbox Software forums started a thread asking users what they drew on the dry-erase board.[3] The thread generated a total of 269 posts, including many pictures in addition to several videos. On October 24th, 2011, video game website OnLiveFans posted an assortment of dry-erase board images submitted by individual users.[4]
