What is Man The Moon?
To "man the moon" is to prepare the outter moon of the planet Earth for use as a projectile toward an opposing force. It is a slang term referring to the use of an ultimatum toward an enemy or threat. "Man(ing) the moon" originated as a commonly posted phrase exisiting in the lingo of the web site 4chan. When a picture,news piece,subject,etc is posted that is so menecing,threatening,unbeleivable or overwhelming it is beyond the description of ordinary words, it is common in the 4chan community to post the phrase "man the harpoons" with a small avatar of a readied harpoon(s). Likewise, if the forerunning post is particularly impressive, it is then often dubbed necessary to "man the moon". A picture of the moon coliding with the Earth is often posted along with the phrase.
