Wtf. Mace has always sounded very intelligent and I was always surprised how fucking nuts he sounded when talking about chicks. Until I saw the pit thread by JohnClay today. I realized that I was attributing clay posts to mace.
Who do you sometimes confuse without a double take?
There are posters Tripler and TriPolar. While Tripler sounds like a reasonably nice guy, TriPolar seems to be superlatively witty, suave, and devilishly handsome, so I don’t have trouble telling them apart.
I do believe there is an MLS on the board. Sometimes people refer to me by my initials and I think that MLS is also in the thread. WhyNot has a poster with similar name, threw me for a loop once or twice.
We’ve done this one numerous times over the years.
The two which threw me for a loop: noticed Mangetout pretty early on, but soon noticed another poster whose handle I also assumed was derived from French, Mangeorge. At first I thought it was Mange Ogre (mangy ogre?), but only later noticed the spelling wasn’t like that, leaving me a bit nonplussed-in my mind anytime I’d come across it, I’d pronounce it “Manjy Orje”. Only much later did it dawn on me that it was meant to be Man George, and not French-derived at all.
On that same note, Der Trihs’ is most definitely not German.
