Why do people that own a gaming PC refer to themselves as the "master race"?

According to a quick google search, TC is a peasant, mostly Xbox One.

I found the dirty console peasant.


Stand aside Peasant, this is a proper discussion.


You're not allowed to call people Peasants if you are not part of the Master Race.


I'll call "master race" people peasants.

Yeah, I understand it's a joke. What I don't understand is that people take it seriously and label themselves as the "master race" in a serious manner.

I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've seen "master race" used in a serious manner. Sure it's hugely overused and slightly annoying, but that doesn't mean people are actually taking it seriously...

What's that term called where you embrace something that was meant as a joke and don't take it seriously, however, you run the risk of a certain sub group actually taking it seriously?

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

Thank you! I know I may have misunderstood it.

Anyway, PC Masterrace is an example of Poe's Law.

Yahtzee from Zero Punctuation

I'm actually pretty curious since I've never heard of Yahtzee and I don't see what The Witcher has to do with the whole master race thing
