ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
('shooped from a Shutterstock image.)
I usually blame the dog when I vert
Is the dog saying “Armageddon averted?”
How can the dog possibly know that until all the verts are counted?
His keen sense of smell.
Feeling important because you voted is like feeling rich because you played the lottery
No, it’s not.
If you vote, you will never wake up regretting it the day after the results are in.
I, for one, get all my feelings of importance by sharing vaguely unpalatable sentiments online.
Whoa there, don’t forget the role of third-party Likes in establishing one’s importance.
Who’s a good citizen? Who’s a good citizen?
Ah verted in da verting boof, den da verting ppl verted me off da island
Isn’t ermahgerd over yet? Please?
“AH VERTERD”, with that second R, sounds more ermahgerded to me. In fact, it sounds ermahgerdest.
It might depend on whether you are rhotic or non-rhotic.
The language is based on speaking with braces, so I think that may make rhotic impossible.
Had to look up “rhotic”, was surprised to find out that my inability to pronounce the hard “r” in Spanish (my first language) has a name (rotacismo). Long ago I adapted my mechanics to keep it very subtle, with some people it’s really pronounced and subject to jokes in the ermahgerd style.
