Apropos of this post I was wondering what the most useful 'answer macros' would be for Ask.Me?

1. Ditch the motherfucker already
2. Lawyer up already
3. Go ahead and eat it, you'll be fine
4. Kiss her, you fool
5. He's just not that into you

Also,

ALWAYS Request A Gradient-Echo Sequence With An MRI If You're Attempting To Detect Cavernous Angioma.

posted by taz at 10:27 AM on March 13, 2008


Mine does not have an associated full phrase. When I used to play trivia on AOL (I know), BARL was my nonsense acronym that I made up solely so the LOLers and ROFLers would ask me "What does BARL mean?" I would either say nothing or respond something like "I can't believe you don't know that."

AND NOW YOU KNOW . . . the rest of the boring story.

"Most significant of all was his loose-leaf pocket note-book, that modern and efficient note-book which contained the addresses of people he had forgotten, prudent memoranda of postal money-orders which had reached their destinations months ago, stamps which had lost their mucilage, clippings of verses by T. Cholmondeley Frink and of the newspaper editorials from which Babbitt got his opinions and his polysyllables, notes to be sure and do things which he did not intend to do, and one curious inscription - D.S.S.D.M.Y.P.D.F."

A inscription that's not subsequently spelled out, for satiric reasons perhaps still pertinent eighty years later.

I registered a bunch of domain names a year or so ago, with the idea of building this big online recipe database. When a year had passed, and I still hadn't built anything, I went ahead and used one of the catchier ones for a blog, but not before I ran them all past my friends.

No one had any idea what "afkcooking" meant.
