The intent of this website it so educate the populous on the existence of paugh, illustrate how to identify paugh, and if you are paugh, show you how to embrace it.
"Paugh" was first discovered during a viewing of the movie "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels." Steve Martin's "Ruprecht" character helped form the original inspiration for Paugh as we know it today. It was only discussed in small circles until 2000 when Josh Teague publicly imitated Ruprecht and experienced paugh first hand. He mentally documented the experience though was not fully able to develop a full understanding of paugh by himself. In 2003 Josh presented his findings to his fellow researchers of the world Michael R. Nelson and William H. Mather. Over the next three years these great minds developed a greater understanding of the phenomenon of paugh and began documenting it visually. In January of 2005, paugh went to the public in the form of this website. Since then, Mike, Josh, and Will have conscripted the noble paugh theologians Leon O. Fowler,Jeremy Z. Van Hill, and Brett Q. Gilbert to help build to the paugh research database. This website is a product of their labor, finding, illustrating, and sometimes creating paugh for the greater good of the world. May god bless their work.
