"Admins" is a word. More than a word, really, it's a state of mind. It's also a contraction of another word, Administrators. Admins are the police in a crime-riddled Uncyclopedia; the only sane minds in a world gone mad. They're the shotgun blast to the zombie skull of page-blankers.
They're just like the rest of us. But better...and with a modicum of power. Like mall cops. Except mall cops aren't better and have no power.
In short, they're exactly like mall cops.
The black art of the humble admin originated way back with Pope Eugene III. As a Pope saddled with a nerdy name, Eugene felt the need (as all those who are the infallible word of God on Earth inevitably do) to get more power and spread peace and love by crushing all those that opposed him. He did this by issuing a Papal Bull in 1145 that stated something in Latin. As even back in times of yore no one could read Latin, his people decided that he'd meant the Bull to be for the creation of another level of bureaucracy. They also tacked on a rider starting the Second Crusade. But that's another article (or, if it hasn't been created yet, that's not another article). And they also started this sort of peace and love But that's also another article.
In this case the Bull led to the creation of His Most Holy Defenders of a Series of Interconnected Tubes, Though Truly Not of the Tubes Themselves But of the Traffic That Passes Through Those Very Tubes.
The title sounds better in Latin. It sounds a bit like "Admin", in fact.
Adminstratorés Gone Wild!
These newly created Adminstratorés quickly found that there was nothing for them to do, as the Interweb had not yet been invented.
Instead, half took up music and joined the local choir. They weren't told about the necessary "snip" before joining the Castadministrasti. Eugene had a good laugh about that one.
The other half went along on the Second Crusade, where they were pants'd by friend and foe alike.
Returning pantsless to France, the admins found a new calling; paperwork! Complete with mailboxes, addresses and lost packets, paperwork was the Internet of its day.
Quickly they grew mad with their newfound power, as those over which they ruled were, unlike Crusaders and infidels, powerless to pants the recently repants'd Adminstratorés. This was because they, the admins, were paper-pushers ruling over other, not-admin, paper-pushers and pushers of paper are notoriously weak, unless they're admins. Admins, while notorious and weak, are rarely both simultaneously.
