23 September 2008

Five fresh fish posted this in mefi a few minutes ago... I don't even know how he did that, or what those characters are.
ಠ_ಠ I'm mystified! [More:]

I won't link to the thread because it's the original Palin thread, weighing in at what? Like 6,000 comments now? ٩(̪̀●́)۶

I like it...

Isn't that Prince's new name?

٩ is Unicode character U+0669, 'Arabic/Indic digit nine'.
๏ is Unicode character U+0E4F, 'Thai character Fongman'.
These are followed by a 'Combining double inverted breve' (Unicode character U+0361) and a 'Combining inverted breve below' (Unicode character U+032F), I don't know how you make these display on their own, here they are sandwiched between a pair of dashes: -̯͡-
๏ is another 'Fongman'.
) is a regular close bracket.
۶ is Unicode character U+06F6, 'Extended Arabic/Indic digit six'.

'The Fongmen' would be a cool name for a band.

I am only commenting on this thread so I can find it later to copy that little guy. I feel like this a lot lately, I think that's a sign I need a new life :)

Yeah, the Palin thread is beyond my system's memory capacity or something. I don't even try anymore.

lol stilicho I loaded it this AM and was like 'oh, huh, that was painless!' then made some flip comment in-thread... whereupon my MBP promptly went tits-up, whirling beachball o' doom, the whole shebang.

which is only appropriate, after all. Mad kudos to fff, becaue Fongman there quite accurately captures the essence of that thread. the whole trainwrecky, troll-poke-y, 6K comment-having, whirling beachball-ness of it.

sadly Fongman is missing a couple key graphical elements on this here PC POS I get to wrestle with in the orifice.

someone should tip fff off that he's potentially spawned a MeCha meme.

It looks an awful lot like Stewie. Or at least, the left half of Stewie.
