Dibs: Its totally a thing
Definition: 1. Claim, Right. 2. To make a claim to something that no other currently has a recognized right to. 3. The most powerful force in the universe, it is used to call possession of a certain object or idea. There are very few things that trump dibs
History: The history of “Dibs” is lost in antiquity. However, it is known that the use of the terms was widely debated in the mid 22nd century, shortly after the Great Space War. It was both a matter of debate among the secular powers and the space catholic church. It was decided that the church would be allowed to come to a decision in order to avoid another round great bloodshed. Thus began the 1st Council of the Moon.
The 1st Council of the Moon was presided over by Space Pope Chuck Norris II1.
After much debate, the Space Pope declared “It is hereby recognized that Dibs is totally a thing, and the person who does not recognize it is an enemy to free people everywhere and a heretic. The most powerful force in the universe, it is used to call possession of a certain object or idea. There are very few things that trump dibs.
Some examples, which are meant to be illustrative and not exhaustive of when dibs apply would be: If there is one slice of pizza and a person calls dibs, then they are entitled to that slice. If someone call dibs on shotgun while in full view of the car then they are entitled to ride shotgun. Or suppose there was a group who happened to capture a space ship, and said ship no longer had a captain. Then if any member of this group were to boldly call dibs while in clear view of the ship, then that bold person would be captain.
As I said there are few things that trump dibs, but a few of the examples would be if the dibs was improperly called, or a divine command of God, or most importantly Chuck Norris.”
With that the First Council of the Moon ended and there was a period of peace.
1 He was the first Space Pope named Chuck Norris, but he called himself the II in fear of angering Chuck Norris, who disappeared sometime in the first half of the 21st century. It is rumored that he roams around space waiting to round house kick people in the face. Some theologians argue that this could be the start of the Apocalypse predicted in the book of Revelations.
