Rich is my New Best Friend
Amazingly, someone actually figured out my little cipher. Rich Crete posted the following comment:
1 = Won
Lac is the Egyptian word for “The” which as we know in German is Der
Ros is Latin for ass or in polite society…Butt
The answer was “Wonderbutt”. Wonderbutt is pretty much this blog’s mascot, so I thought it was appropriate. What is truly amazing, though, was that Rich translated it using completely different languages than I did. And I’m not even sure his translations are real. My translation worked this way:
La= the French word for “der” (according to Google Translate)
Crosse= the French word for “butt”
I giggle at the irony when I first typed in the “Wonder” part into Google Translate and hit the Spanish button. The result was “preguntarse”. As soon as I saw the last syllable, I thought that was pretty appropriate.
Anway, congrats to Rich on his new award, the “I Wonderbutt, Do You?” trophy. As a condition of accepting this award, you must know that you are committing to responding to my e-mails of license plate photos from now until the end of eternity.
Now, I am a teacher. Teachers like to recognize superior effort as well as talent, so I feel that I must also point out the stunningly wrong but cunningly long comment by John as he attempted to think himself out loud to the solution.
So, I am going to present him with the equally prestigious “Do You Wonderbutt? I Do” trophy.
While I am talking about awards, I must thank butenuffaboutme for offering me a Versatile Blogger Award. What the heck. Let’s throw in something for butenffuaboutme, too.
O.K. My job is done.
