Blog slang

While nosing around earlier, I found this rather amusing set of acronyms to use on blogs.

Here's an extract:

Liberal/Progressive blogs

AAS - another angry student
IAKBIAA - I already know Bush is an a**hole
INKWYABWAYF - I now know what you're against, but what are you for?
CESM - cheese-eating surrender monkey
TECATM - this "equality" concept appeals to me
YBIGTBTCOASR - your blog is going to be the centrepiece of a social revolution

All Blogs

BAD - buy a dictionary
WDYB - why do you bother?
OCBIWYTVMB - only commenting because i want you to visit to my blog
AYAASWOWF - are you also a sociopath when out with friends?
SICHBA - sorry, i came here by accident
GABDY - got a book deal yet?
DAWTCDFYBWYCDFT - ask not what Technorati can do for you -- ask what you can do for Technorati
YMETWDIBLTP - yet more evidence that web design is best left to professionals

cutting!

They sound very complicated, don't think I could learn them. Is there one you could do for "It's sunny outside, yet I'm still stuck here blogging"?  



Blogger Croydonian said... 1:58 pm

Here goes: ISOYISSHB

Not bad actually, as it can said aloud without sounding completely insane....

Here's mine for certain bloggers who may leave comments on my site. BOSUJ

PT - I'll guess the 'o' is for 'off'?  



Blogger Praguetory said... 2:26 pm

V good. The U is using.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 2:31 pm

B*gger off, stop using jargon.  



Blogger Rigger Mortice said... 2:36 pm

CESM will go into my vocabulary  



Blogger Praguetory said... 2:49 pm

CCBRATT? This one is tough, William.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 2:58 pm

Crypto communist being risible all the time?

If that's right, someone somewhere ought to be eating a hat.  



Blogger Praguetory said... 3:28 pm

Croydonian can't be right all the time! Ha.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 3:29 pm

Didn't really think I would be...

Time for a hint?  



Blogger Praguetory said... 3:29 pm

That's the answer. Read again.  



Blogger Praguetory said... 3:35 pm

Got to pop out to www.bacon.cz Can anyone else find the answer?  



Blogger Croydonian said... 3:42 pm

Groan...

Sounds like a useful website. That's what this country needs - a really good online bacon sandwich ordering website. Or else for me to be a tad less lazy.

There's a pizzeria in these parts called Pizza Online, which has no web presence at all.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 6:18 pm

I give you EBOOFAD - Enough blogging, off out for a drink.

I might actually use that one.  



Blogger Praguetory said... 7:59 pm

It's not really going to catch on is it?  



Blogger Croydonian said... 9:04 pm

Harrumph....  



Anonymous Paul Linford said... 1:36 pm

How about:

GOTALY - Got on the A-list yet?
BATWFCIFY - Been asked to write for Comment is Free yet?

Said with no particular individual(s) in mind of course...  



Blogger Croydonian said... 2:42 pm

Paul - Like them.
