Typical is a word that gets used on Encyclopædia Dramatica a lot. A whole hell of a lot. As in, there are more search pages for the word "typical" and "Encyclopedia Dramatica" than there are actual articles on ED. "Typical" can be used to describe a website, any image, and everything else that isn't categorized as fail (although it should not be confused with "boring").

Typically, "typical" is used to typify a certain subject, typically one in image captions or in the body of an article. However typical it is to use "typical" in an article, it is generally typically accepted on ED when you have nothing funnier to say.

List of Articles with the Word "Typical"

Typical Black Metal ritual

That creates a number that is so fucking large that it's bigger than the Internet itself and more beautiful than heaven!!! In fact, that's only a fraction of typical's true size and beauty. Every thing that exists in the entire universe is composed of typical which is why everything IS typical (except You and Alex Wuori as both of you are only made of fail).

How to Make "Typical" Work for YOU!

To make "typical" work for you, follow these easy steps:

  1. Write/edit an article.
  2. Place image in article, but instead of using a humorous caption, simply write "Typical [subject]." Note: This is much more effective when the image uploaded is in fact atypical for the subject matter.
  3. ?????
  4. PROFIT!

Bonus points if you shove your image to the top of the article, pushing all the other, actually typical ones down.

Failure to get "typical" to work for you typically means that you're a retard.

Uses on Wikipedia

Typical and its derivative "typically" is used profusely on Wikipedia, either as a way of reducing the already short vocabulary of its readers or to underline idiotic remarks. With no shame whatsoever, Wikipedos have mastered the technique of using typical/typically on more than 80,000 entries so far, sometimes twice or thrice in the same entry.

Examples include:

  • The typical girth or circumference [of the penis] is approximately 12.3 cm (4.85 in) when fully erect.

  • Paul opposes programs like federally funded flood insurance (typically supported by coastal and rural representatives).
  • ...the word "propaganda" more typically refers to political or nationalist uses of these techniques or to the promotion of a set of ideas..
