Haw ---> "Hello Tai Fung"

When I saw that Humming Crystal portal out in the wild, I announced it, against my better judgment, in General chat. So I got this in response:

[General] Doomherald says, "Hello Tai Fung"

D'oh. I heart anonymity. Attention to me is like sunlight to dracula (and yes, I realize that this blog makes no sense, but trust me, I'm just a glutton for punishment).

So, I try to think of something to say back to Doom. I figure I'll just do this emoticon: =P

Instead (I actually think I was flustered!), I managed to (ever the gimp!) hit the key to the LEFT of the "P," so I typed out this: ={

WTF is that? Snidely Whiplash?

(blank stares)

Ahem -- THIS guy:

Anyway, I managed to type out this: ={

So that absolutely BAFFLES Doom, who said something about not accepting sad emotes. Well, good point, although that wasn't what it was.

So, naturally, as I always do, I deflected. And discussed brackets. At length.

(No log of this, so this is from memory)
You tell Doomherald, "Sorry hit the bracket key instead."
You tell Doomherald, "What's the difference between the squiggly bracket and the other one?"
You tell Doomherald, "Aren't they both brackets?"
You tell Doomherald, "I MUST KNOW THESE THINGS, THEY WILL GRIP ME ALL NIGHT"

Yeah. So Doom moved on (probably back to torturing Ixus, who is still proclaiming victories after getting his ass kicked over and over, just like the Democratic party in Presidential elections).

I bet NO ONE gets the Snidely Fucking Whiplash reference, even WITH the link.

Sigh.
