What's a flodnak?

I couldn’t ask this in any of a dozen or more other threads, without being an off-topic hijack, so I’ll post this in a new thread unto itself.

What’s a flodnak?



Okay. Got it. Ignorance fought! Now I know. Nothing more to see here. Can sleep now.

(ETA: Geez, it’s not like there’s nobody else on this board with a user name that’s just another name spelled backward, ya think?)

I would have used my IRL name as my Doper handle but “Anna Cuot” was already taken.

And, thanks to that linked thread, I’ve discovered that Johanna is Jomo Mojo.


-Joe Oicilpmis.

Is that you, Dio?

And she actually had an earlier name predating that one, but I don’t recall it. I just remember it was one word, and it was in lesser-known language, or maybe just not Indo-European.

It was Lithuanian, which is the champion Indo-European language.

Am I the only one who has no idea what the hell is going on in this thread?

No, you are not.

Just don’t get that confused with Mojo Jojo. That never ends well.

While we’re at it, what’s a henfur?

Thjat one’s so old, I’m surprised you tried to pullet on us. :slight_smile:

I think my brain just doesn’t work that way. I didn’t get Der Trihs until someone spelled it out, either. (and, yes, I know that it’s also a character in fiction.) Nor did I get Drainbead.

Flodnak != Foldnak.

flodnak”, if I recall correctly, is from back in the alt.fan.cecil-adams days, if not earlier.


Flodnak! = Flodnak factorial
