Katy t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m (Katy the Penguin of Doom) is a copypasta story told from the perspective of a 13-year-old girl who claims to visit 4chan’s /b/ (random) board because she is “very random.” Written in a jumble of l33tspeak and SMS shorthands, the story is meant to mock the attention-seeking style of humor that is often characterized as “so random” by adolescent Internet users.
The earliest known instance of the copypasta appeared on October 12th, 2006 in the /a/ (anime) discussion board of 4chan in a thread discussing reasons why the anime series Naruto “sucks.” In the thread, the poster identified herself as a “random” 13-year-old girl named Katy and demanded to be referred to as “t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m.”

The Older Sister
Greetings, everyone. I am new. (One second – let me get this spork out of the
way.) My name is Katy, but you can call me the Penguin of Doom. (I’m laughing
aloud.) As you can plainly see, my actions have no pattern whatsoever. That is
why I have come here. To meet similarly patternless individuals, such as myself.
I am 13 – mature for my age, however! – and I enjoy watching Invader Zim
with my girlfriend. (I am bisexual. Please approach this subject maturely.)
It is our favorite television show, as it adequately displays stochastic
manners of behavior such as we possess.
She behaves without order – of course – but I wish to meet more individuals
of her and my kind. As the saying goes, “the more, the merrier.”
Ah, it is to laugh. Anyway, I hope to make many friends here, so please
That is simply one of many examples of my random actions. Ha, ha. Fare
thee well. I wish you much love and waffles.
The Penguin of Doom.
