Sometimes, writing this blog brings unexpected results. Like the time I tried to give a controversial figure’s viewpoint some air time, but infuriated him in the process and ended up having to ban him. Or the time I hosted a haiku contest and ended up with the best animated GIF ever.
Some good, some bad, but always unexpected.
It seems I’d written something over a month ago about the strangely traditional things that I and our group say when encountering certain circumstances. As an example, I talked about the awful faux-Scottish accent I completely butcher while trying to say “Ruddy Fungus”.
It was a fun article to write, and judging by the comments and views, seemed to be one that many of you enjoyed too. Nothing special, just fun, and that was that.
Or so I thought.
Yesterday, out of the blue, Quijonn (the author of The Stormreach Campaign) who is actually Scottish added this to the article comments:
Not the image – those are from Merriam-Webster. The sound clip!
It is perfect! So exactly the way I thought it would sound! Awesome!
And so unexpected.
I’ve been playing it over and over and it makes me laugh every time.
As if any further proof was needed, you all are the best part of this blog.
The best part.
