NB: The ????/PROFIT! meme has been used over 9000 times and is starting to get old.

The Gnomes were doing it for the lulz all along.

???? is a magical process by which anything can be turned into PROFIT! Originally this was part of the secret business plan to making a shit load of money in a Capitalist society by the "Underpants Gnomes" from the Gnomes - The Search For Underpants episode of South Park. Their formula for turning underpants into Jew Gold is demonstrated thusly:

  1. Collect underpants.
  2. ?
  3. Profit

Note that only one ? was used and that PROFIT! was never written in ALL CAPS or with an exclamation point, but /b/ added moar ?s because they suffer from a collective mental insufficiency.


Behold ???? in action:


The Song

Time to go to work, work all night
Search for underpants, hey!
We won't stop until we have underpants
Yum tum yummy tum day!

Solving ????

Anon scientists have been attempting to solve ???? and discover the details of the process for many years. So far all attempts have failed, although ???? is believed to involve infecting Samuel L. Jackson with AIDS. However, there is one critical flaw in this theory: Mace Windu is a nigger and already has AIDS; therefore, researchers are now trying to discover a way to inject live scorpions into his dick. They're not sure it will do anything useful, but believe it is worth a try, just in case.
