I cannot stress this further: I have nothing against Engineers. They are a nice bunch (mostly). Yes, even those who can’t speak English for nuts. Here at warinthepocket, we do not discriminate. I think.
Dear readers, with great pleasure:
Emoticons and Dead Mice: Part Three
In the posts I have covered the term ‘diao’. Now, I will go into detail on the term ‘testis’.
Here’s a sample. (This was posted last time, in case you haven’t seen it.)
Basically, ‘testis’ in the ah lian dictionary is shorthand for the word ‘testimonials’. Those of you who are Friendster users will be familiar with the testimonial system.
Now let me refer to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary for the definition of the word ‘testimonial’.
Main Entry: 2testimonial
1 : Evidence; Testimony
2 a : a statement testifying to benefits received b : a character reference : letter of recommendation
3 : an expression of appreciation : Tribute
Ok, that I guess we know why there is a testimonial system in Friendster. Anyone can guess, that is, to promote good will and trust.
As mentioned, many people have taken to shortening this word from ‘testimonials’ to ‘testis’, or from ‘testimonial’ to ‘testi’. So we now have plural and single nouns.
Here comes the good part.
Let us refer to the same dictionary on the definition of ‘testis’
Main Entry: tes·tis
Inflected Form(s): plural tes·tes /'tes-"tEz/
Etymology: Latin, witness, testis
: a typically paired male reproductive gl
and that produces sperm and that in most mammals is contained within the scrotum at sexual maturity
Gasp!! ‘testis’ actually refers to testicles aka balls?! I’m shocked!! This means that we have a totally new way of looking at things.
Ah Lian: Please write for me a testi
1) Please write for me a testimonial
2) Please write for me a BALL?!
Of all the crude wordplay jokes I’ve heard, this one is one of the best!!!! Please write for me a gonad? This is so funny! Don’t tell me that nobody who uses these phrases have ever thought of this?
Oh, I’m getting a side stitch writing this.. Looks like I’m having a ball of a time! (Pun intended.)
Here comes the best part. I will now show you the whole grand scheme of things.
It seems like everything on Earth has a purpose. This is so very ironic. I mean, ‘diao’ with ‘testis’, if you translate it to what I have interpreted it to be, you’ll know what it means..
Ok, one last point. These MSN users have managed to become ‘one with the force’, by using the ultimate dogma of DIAOness summarised in one picture.
Well, they say a picture speaks a thousand words!
Finally, the pieces of the puzzle all fit together! We now draw to the end of the Emoticons and Dead Mice trilogy. I hope that you have enjoyed yourself. Thank you for reading!
