Up, Down, Down, Down: Corgi Cheat Code Revealed
Researchers at Dartmouth University announced today that following months of painstaking research, they have finally unlocked the universal corgi cheat code.
"We tried hundreds of different combinations in a highly controlled lab setting," said lead researcher Antoine Vargas by email. "Our breakthrough came at 2:42AM EDT on June 2 when we tried up, down, down, down."
However, Vargas and his team haven’t figured out what the code unlocks.
"That’s phase two," he said. "We received a message saying we had activated ‘Derp Mode,’ but we’re still running to tests to figure out exactly what that is."
The team’s results have since been replicated by a second group at the University of New South Wales in Australia using a different set of dogs. The research will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Corgi Sci.
