Paddlin' is a derail recently revived by the poster Whelp !GAYLIONcUM . It involves a previously existing meme being used to change the topic of a thread to a number of posters paddlin' eachother. WHELP IS SO GAY, HE'S STRAIGHT, no, you don't say.
The derail was revived in a thread on pony jobs, but by the time the paddlin' got there it had already derailed into a thread about Twilight Sparkle's ample rear. Once there, Midnight Sparkle responded to a poster with "That's A Paddlin'". When our humble co-founder Starshine Sprint entered, Midnight Sparkle paddled him numerous times before paddlin' the Grim Reaper, a bunch of 4chan memes and even Spiderman.
!!Soarin denied the revival an /arch/ and basically raged about the /arch/ request even being sent in the first place because he's a douche, which may or may not have led to his early retirement.

NOTE: The meme was actually created by Whelp. Don't be an ass, Midnight.
