Top 5 Prior Bumble Quotes

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–What are the top five Prior Bumble quotes of all time? Read on to found out, and scroll to the bottom for exclusive quote images you can use in the server, or anywhere!

The Recon Federation’s Founder and Commander, Prior Bumble, is known for his eloquence with words, and in using them to conduct any situation he is presented with. After asking members of the RFCP, I have compiled a list of the top 5 quotes from our cherished Commander.

#5 IT

IS

TIME

FOR

THE

BATTLE

SPEECH!!

Coming in on the number 5 slot on the countdown, we have: “IT IS TIME FOR THE BATTLE SPEECH!!”

Top 10 Moments From the 'Lord of the Rings' Trilogy - The ...

This quote was used by Prior Bumble to get soldiers excited for big battles, and explosive emoji reactions, salutes from officers, and a hush of anticipatory silence always followed. Cue the hype and powerful wordsmithing. RFCP still holds this quote near and dear, and uses it as a precedent for all major battle speeches, making it one of the most unforgettable of all time.

#4 “You don’t need to be hurting as much as you are, because you got a whole family here.”

Our number 4 position was suggested by Uncle Satchmo, pulled from a private letter Prior Bumble wrote to him.

While this quote may be pretty self-explanatory, it has earned its rank on our Top 5 list, because it is one of the many perfect examples we have of Prior Bumble’s compassion towards his soldiers. At the Recon Federation, everyone is family; and while it is easy to feel sad sometimes, this quote is a perfect way of saying you are never as alone as you may feel.

#3 “The best way to be a leader is to be good to my soldiers.”

Coming in at our midway point is one of Prior Bumble’s earliest quotes. He is recording as first saying it in-game at the Ski Village before RFCP was even declared an army in CPATG!

This quote best exemplifies how Prior Bumble viewed leadership and what it entails. Prior Bumble cares for his soldiers and considered that “good shepherd” mentality as his greatest mandate for command.

Perhaps this affinity for stewardship started even before we met him. Before Prior Bumble was our Commander at RFCP, he served as Commissar, second-in-command, of the People’s Republic Army with ColinZfresh. ColinZfresh was not only Prior Bumble’s friend and leader at the time; he was Prior’s mentor. Through ColinZFresh’s guidance, Prior learned that being a good leader doesn’t always translate directly into what you do on the battlefield, but to how well you can minister to the needs of your soldiers off the battlefield. This led to other Prior Bumble policies, most notably the Constitutional, “Put the person before the penguin.”

#2 “War the fuck on.”

Boom!

While the battle for our number 1 slot was very close, the decided runner-up quote is: “War the fuck on.”

Dating back to World War 8, our controversial second place winner shines a spotlight on the war-lust of Prior Bumble. He described himself as a “war dog,” and as former CPAH CEO Pookie437 once said,

Prior taught everyone in RFCP to never back down from a fight. Even while facing several of the biggest armies, Prior Bumble, and the RFCP, knows that the most important thing is standing tall in the face of our enemies and holding the sacred ground (erat ipso sacra!).

#1 “Woof.”

Nobody should be surprised by this.

Coming in as the Number 1 Prior Bumble quote of All Time is: “Woof.”

At the Recon Federation of Club Penguin, Prior Bumble is revered for his authority and leadership. He is the alpha wolf, and he makes sure everyone knows it.

The quote was so true-to-form for how we all see Prior as being our alpha, that it has stuck around and officially earned its position as top dog on our Top 5 Prior Bumble Quotes.

!!! Honorable Mention !!!

But wait! There’s more!

Seeing as Commander CoolJ was the only one to bring this quote up, and it was too funny to leave off our list, our honorable mention goes to: “What is ‘dior dior’? Is that lingo from the hood?”

True to his renowned “boomer” nature, Prior asked the question one day many months ago while then-Commissar Coolj was singing along to “Dior” by Pop Smoke in one of the voice chats. While Commander Coolj is young and seems to be (for the most part) interested in rap music, Commander Prior Bumble is more laid back and prefers older genres. When the two worlds collided in a voice chat one night, it was nothing but pure comedy as the older and younger generations of RFCP Commanders tried to understand each other’s taste in music.

Si Todos los Soldados de la RFCP Fueran Clubes de Fútbol

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–¿Qué equipos de fútbol encarnan nuestros oficiales de RFCP? ¡Sigue leyendo!

RFCP is proud to welcome speakers of all languages into our family. This post is entirely in Spanish to cater to our Spanish division. A translation of the text into English can be found here (part 1) and here (part 2).

Mientras todo el mundo habla del Super Bowl, aquí en los Marines casi nadie se preocupa por lo que sucede en el fútbol, ​​así que hablemos un poco sobre el fútbol normal, ya que me convertiré en el primer (y único) reportero hispano en el blog.Se vienen los octavos de final de la Champions League, así que pensé que sería interesante comparar a nuestros líderes y miembros con equipos de fútbol, y por qué se parecen a ese club en mi opinión. Sin necesidad de explicar más, acá vamos.

Comandante Prior Bumble: Manchester United

Un club con una historia larga y bastante amplia aplica para nuestro veterano fundador en toda la ley. El Manchester United solía dominar la liga inglesa, pero en memoria reciente se ha hecho a un lado. Aun así esta haciendo una campaña formidable esta temporada, lo que perfectamente se compara a la vida después del retiro de Prior Bumble.

Comandante Coolj: Bayern Múnich

Nuestro líder actual, Coolj, se compara al tirano líder de la liga alemana. Con un estilo agresivo, el Bayern ha tomado el mundo del fútbol por sorpresa con un juego basado en la presión constante, respaldado por una estrategia acertada en el mercado de fichajes. Coolj se asemeja con su actitud agresiva, calculada, y muy intensa.

Coolj

Comisario Hamster: Paris Saint Germain

Hamster, nuestra querida banquera se compara a un club cuyo modelo de negocio actual ha sido construido a base de el manejo de sumas altísimas de plata, rompiendo varios records en gastos, lo que se puede comparar a Hamster y cosas como su involucramiento en la transferencia masiva que desencadenó el Feddiegate 3.0.

Hamster

General Sillabye: Ajax

La líder del departamento de reclutamiento se asemeja a un club famoso por su actitud amistosa con jóvenes talentos, fichando barato y vendiendo caro. El trabajo de Sillabye es parecido, reclutando nuevos soldados para la RFCP que algún día quizás serán leyendas. O quizás ellos abandonen el server en menos de una semana eso también es una opción.

Silla

General Anilia: Atalanta

Un club construido en fichar barato y vender caro, como el Ajax, queda bien para la segunda líder de reclutamiento. El juego del Atalanta, basado en juego rápido y letal, ha tomado por sorpresa a la liga italiana, y el ascenso rápido de Anilia al triunfo, como el del conjunto de Bérgamo (ya se lo que piensas, asi se llama la ciudad de la que vienen).

Anilia

Mariscal de Campo (ret.) Joshafter: Leicester City

En sus propias palabras, él es “ese club que hace unos años ganó la liga inglesa de alguna forma”. Según él, se ve como la persona en la que nadie cree, pero que luego acabará ganando. Aun así, Josh es fan del Bayern Munich, lo que queda bien con nuestra analogía.

Leicester City F.C. - Wikipedia

Mayor Arne: Red Bull Leipzig

El joven equipo alemán fundado en el 2009 ha subido de categoría hasta llegar a la cima en solo 11 años de existencia, ya habiendo llegado a semifinales de la Champions League en su corta existencia. Yo por mi parte he tenido un ascenso inexistente, debido a que me dieron Mayor inmediatamente, pero en mi army vieja llegué a tercero en comando como en dos meses, a los 11 años. ¿Qué coincidencia no?

Coronel Shy Guy: Borussia Dortmund

El líder de la división para menores de edad se puede comparar a un club conocido y renombrado por su notable academia de fútbol para jóvenes, que produce muchos talentos emocionantes. Shy Guy ha sido muy entusiasta con la división, llamada Silver Thirty, y es sin duda un soldado querido, como el equipo amarillo y negro aleman.

Vizconde Don: Juventus

La Juventus aprovechó el caos de la liga italiana a inicios de la década pasada, y mediante una buena estrategia financiera, a diferencia del resto, tomó el liderazgo de dicha liga, y lo ha mantenido por 9 años. Don, o El Huachimingo, asumió el liderazgo de la Infantería de Marina siguiendo a los líderes españoles de la RFCP Kerx y Jeremito, y permaneció en el cargo durante mucho tiempo.

Astrology of June 5, 2019

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–What was the horoscope on RFCP’s founding date? What supernatural wonders were at work?

Astrology is the study of heavenly objects with the belief that their positions can influence human and natural affairs. Since June 5, 2019 was a HUGE day for RFCP, the blog decided to take a look at what was going on in the stars the night Prior Bumble chose to create the Recon Federation.

Conclusion

Not since discussing nighttime dreams associated with RFCP has the blog written about such a mystical topic. But the world is full of wonder and mystery, and we believe the founding of RFCP was a sacred event in the universe. Is there something that speaks to you deeply, even spiritually, about this day?

There is for us.

Ask the Officer: Col. MicroHamster

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–As RFCP starts off a new year of fun and excitement, RFCP Col. MicroHamster kicks off a brand new “Ask the Officer” blog series!

When I initially asked late last year who our soldiers wanted interviewed first for the new blog series, I assumed they would pick one of our higher-ranking officers. However, as you can see here, the soldiers of the Recon Federation of Club Penguin have decided to use me (Col. MicroHamster) as the guinea pig for our newest segment.

I requested that everyone DM me the burning questions they wanted answered for the blog, and you all delivered. Without further ado, let’s see what you all came up with!

Q: Are you interested in robotics and code? – F.M. JustinTFC
A: I actually took a computer coding class in school. It wasn’t anything major, just the basics of using html code, but I did find it very fun. While I have never actually gotten into robotics, I’ve always found it interesting to see how things work, especially in the technological sense.

Q: Who do you want to see as one of the next officers of RFCP? – DJChorusKid
A: Honestly, I’m not really sure. There are several people that stick out to me that I think would be amazing as an officer, so I don’t think I could pick just one person. Hopefully one of our Officer’s in Training will join us soon though!

Pssst! Maj. DJ would make a great Officer!

Q: What’s the juiciest thing in the Officers’ chat that we soldiers don’t know? – DJChorusKid
A: Again, there’s a few things that stick out to me with this question, so I’ll just go through the top 3:
1. Col. Shy Guy has discovered how to make perfect toasted ham and cheese sandwich! I think he may actually be Gordon Ramsay in disguise.

2. December has passed and we still don’t know when Gen. Anilia’s birthday is. The answer to this question has evaded us all for months, and we are, sadly, no closer to getting an answer.

3. Speaking of Gen. Anilia, it may have gone unnoticed, but she organized all of the paid roles in the server! Make sure you give her a big thank you!

Q: What’s your favorite microwaveable food? – Arne
A: Popcorn is good, but for actual food, I have to admit that I love these

It’s not the healthiest, but it’s a good comfort food!

Q: How does it feel to be an Officer for the RFCP? – DabOn
A: It’s amazing! It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s very well worth it when something we’ve all worked at comes together. It may not seem like it, but there’s a lot of work that goes into planning events and making sure they happen.

Q: What was your favorite RFCP event or point in history? – Commissar Hamster
A: Storytimes are always a lot of fun, but I think watching Dragon Tales in the voicechat (Krispy TV) was one of my favorite things we’ve done. Everyone got so involved in it and it was fun just chilling with everyone.

Q: What was your proudest moment in RFCP? – Commissar Hamster
A: Hands down, getting to see JustinTFC become an Officer! He’s been like a little brother to me right from the start, and I was ecstatic to be his mentor and help him on his journey to becoming an Officer.

Q: If you were Commander for the day, what would you do? – Commissar Hamster
A: Start a fire in every channel. I’m kidding mostly. I’m not even sure; I’d definitely write a blog about whatever happened, though.

Hopefully that answered all of your questions!

What do YOU think of the new “Ask the Officer” blog series? Who would YOU like to see next month on the second segment in this series? Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts!

Soldier of the Week: 2nd and 3rd Quarter Recipients!

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–Take a look back on our soldiers of the week and celebrate them one more time!

“I love my soldiers.”

Prior Bumble has said this over. and. over.

At RFCP, we really do. And that’s something that makes us different. Our SOTW (Soldier of the Week) is chosen every Friday and receives a special role and lots of affection and appreciation. Oftentimes small prizes accompany this special recognition, and rank has no bearing on worth. Even Agents who just joined days ago might be the recipient of SOTW.

For a look back on our 1st Quarter SOTW recipients, see here! Below is listed our 2nd and 3rd quart recipients.

We love you!

The Real Life Medal of Merit

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–Ever wanted an RFCP medal in real life?  Now, for the first time in RFCP history, your dream can become a reality!

The Medal of Merit is the most prestigious and most difficult medal to obtain in RFCP. To earn this incredible honor, you have to commit a remarkable achievement that the Commander deems worthy of the medal. So far, only 8 people out of hundreds have obtained this medal, at time of the writing of this blog.  And who knows, maybe YOU can be the next recipient, if you continue to work hard!

On September 10th, 2020, Prior Bumble announced groundbreaking news for Medal of Merit recipients.  Any soldier or Officer who has obtained the high-ranking medal is now eligible to obtain a real life version! The medal is handcrafted by our very own founder, Prior Bumble, and I gotta say, it’s a really fine looking medal if you ask me.

Look how handsome it is!

Cmdr. Prior said it takes him about two days to make each medal, and that he uses popsicle sticks, glue, glitter, Sharpies, a bottlecap, and lots of love with his own two hands.

This medal is certainly not the first piece of real life RFCP merchandise, but it is the first award that soldiers can not only receive digitally, but physically as well!

(There ARE lovely buttons in the RFCP store bearing the medals’ likeness, but these do not count as a real medal. See below anyway!)

So far, 2 real-life Medals of Merit are known to exist.

Keep in mind that this incredible handmade medal is only available for those who had already received the Medal of Merit from the Commander.  But could there be real-life mints of the other RFCP medals, such as the Medal of Honor and the RFCP Black Star?

“I’m not ruling it out,” Cmdr. Prior said. “If I see demand, I’d love to make them for you.”

You heard it here! If we like that idea, comrades, we better let him know!

Whether you are one of the lucky enlisted to already earn the Medal of Merit, or possibly a future recipient, make sure you take the opportunity to receive this priceless piece of RFCP culture and history!  Contact a Banker–or Prior Bumble himself–to order your very own Medal of Merit today! 

What do YOU think of the Medal of Merit in real life?  Are you planning on receiving yours from Prior Bumble?  Leave us a comment below to let us know your thoughts!

So You Think You Can Be an Officer?

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALAMajor Arne is here to tell us all about Commander CoolJ’s newest Officer Training Program.

So, you think you have what it takes to become an RFCP officer?


According to our Commander–the coolest of j’s, Coolj–you don’t. Yet!

And that’s why, due to promotion demands by many Majors like yours truly, Coolj decided to reinvent what a Major (and Captain) has to do to make the jump to Officer. 

It all started with a #news post the 23rd of January, 2021. We were fresh off the heels of the 4th semiannual Feddies, and the third feddiegate, WHICH I CRACKED ON THIS BLOG POST Coolj randomly made an announcement to all Majors and Captains stating that all soldiers interested in a promotion should DM him. I, naturally, followed suit.

Coolj then spilled the beans in my direct messages.

Initially, the quota required to take the next step towards Officer was recruiting 3 soldiers and hosting 3 events. After completing both, I (as a Major) would be awarded with a moderator role and would start moderating the server for a bit. If the soldier in question were a Captain, he would be promoted to Major and would sometimes also be able to moderate the server, depending on experience. I personally managed to get the recruits, but more information came on the 25th of January in the GC (Group Chat) with all 6 Captains and Majors that had asked about becoming Officers.

Coolj made the announcement in said GC that, since there were a lot of people fighting for the promotions, now they would have to recruit 5 soldiers and plan 5 events, and 3 of those events must be Club Penguin practice battles. For Captains looking to reach Major, the previous requirements would still apply, with the exception of an additional task: attending 5 events.

You would expect, thus, for RFCP to be thriving with events and new recruits. And it has been, to some extent. This also marked a brief revival of our Telethon server, in which I may or may not have had a sabotage battle against DJ.

But with all of these requirements, who will be the first soldier to beat all the tasks and grab the promotion to Field Marshal and Officery? We don’t know yet, but I sure as hell will be there to try.

The Importance of Recruitment

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA: Colonel ShyGuy steps into the spotlight with his very first blog!

As you all know, the main reason RFCP is an army is because of recruitments. After all, how would anyone have known about RFCP unless they were invited or recruited by someone? Every army does recruitments to gain soldiers, but did you know that RFCP has its very own Recruitment Coalition?

The Recruitment Coalition is a division in the RFCP that focuses strictly on recruitment. Led by General Anilia, this division offers assistance to people who are learning to recruit, and also helps organize group recruitments!

However, I have seen a lack of recruitment effort from several people, and that results in some tough love from the officers and having multiple pings at events when we don’t have many people online.

This number is weeeeeeeak.

It’s common sense to recruit, so why not recruit a friend of yours and/or advertise RFCP in another server?

If you need any more incentive, recruiting is the most high-paying job you can do in RFCP, with $25 Bumble Bucks earned per new recruit. We also have recruitment competitions from time to time that can bring you in even more Bumble Bucks and help get you to (or closer to) your goal of getting that Billy Bot Thornton pillow (available in the RFCP store).

So get out there and recruit, or, as General Anilia would say:

Not really.

– Colonel Shy Guy

The Stolen Watch

Author Unknown

May be a cartoon of one or more people and outerwear

An old man meets a young man who asks, “Do you remember me?”

And the old man says no. Then the young man tells him he was his student, and the teacher asks, “What do you do in life?”

The young man answers, “Well, I became a teacher.”

“Like me?” asks the old man.

“Yes. In fact, I became a teacher because you inspired me to be like you.”

The old man, curious, asks the young man at what time he decided to become a teacher. And the young man tells him the following story:

“One day, a friend of mine, also a student, came in with a beautiful new watch, and I decided I wanted it. So I stole it. I took it from his backpack after he had shown us it. Shortly after, my friend noticed that his watch was missing and immediately complained to our teacher, who was you.

“You addressed the class saying, ‘This student’s watch was stolen during class today. Whoever stole it, please return it.’ I didn’t give it back because I didn’t want to, and I was scared.

“You told us all to stand and form a circle. You were going to search our pockets one by one until the watch was found. However, you told us to close our eyes, because you would only look for the watch if we all had our eyes closed. We did as instructed.

“You went from pocket to pocket, and when you went through my pocket, you found the watch and took it. You kept searching everyone’s pockets, and when you were done you said, ‘Open your eyes. We have the watch.’

“You didn’t tell on me and you never mentioned the episode. You never said who stole the watch, either. That day you saved my dignity forever. It was the most shameful day of my life. But this is also the day I decided not to become a thief, a bad person, etc. You never said anything, nor did you even scold me or take me aside to give me a moral lesson. I received your message clearly. Thanks to you, I understood what a real educator needs to do. Do you remember this episode, professor?”

The old professor answered, “Yes, I remember the situation with the stolen watch. I didn’t remember you, because I also closed my eyes while looking.”

This is the essence of teaching. If to correct you must humiliate, you don’t know how to teach.
