I guessed Ubu was the guy in his avatar.

My boyfriend just read great swathes of it out loud to me, half-paralyzed with simultaneous amusement and confusion.
Truly redefining "esoteric", that reference is. Hmmm.....
*goes off to find avatar of Pwyll Pendeuic Dyuet*
Well! Pwyll is more common than I thought. Man, this "Internet" thing is great. No good ones, though. He's my favorite obscure character... I used to be Queen of Esoteric. But when I left academia I lost touch with all the truly obscure things out there. ;D
French isn't my thing. I've only tried translating once, and that was from Middle Welsh. What a disaster I was in that class! I'm dictionary-impaired, it would seem. But I learned some cool words. "A threigylgweith yd oed yn Arberth, prif lys idaw, a dyuot yn y uryt ac yn y uedwl uynet y hela." "Treigylgweith" is my favorite word of all time in any language. It means, roughly, "Once upon a time"...
Well, it's sleepytime and I'm going away this weekend, so ta-ta for now. :drinking: When I come back everyone will have longer red bars than me and I'll have to resort to hidden text to get back up in ranking. :zap: (Not that I would ever do such a thing!)

Getting Back to Ubu - I thought Ubu was the Black Labrador Retriever at the end of some TV shows. "Sit Ubu sit" - "woof"

(But this is from a guy named Pets whose Avatar says "Woof")

Pets-----you beat me to it!

The sad thing is, I REALLY thought that's who/what they were referring to (oh well, better to look daft in a crowd than as a single dafter (?) )*.

*I'm originally from Alabama, and when I use incorrect spelling/grammar/whatever I just tell them that and they buy it.

I think Ubu the dog must have been named after Pere Ubu. Was the dog fat? There was also a band from Ohio called Pere Ubu -- very popular on college radio back in the day (my day, that is) :hmm:

Oh shucksy! silly of me not to have read those proto-surrealist plays by that well known french playwright chapsky. :learn:

I read the first act, it is indeed very good, if a little bizarre . I'll certainly know the name Alfred Jarry next time I hear it.

Just think, I might even be able to look smart and sophisticated the next time his name is mentioned in my company, I can chip in and say in a deep baritone upper class English accent "Oh yes, Alfred Jarry wrote that play..."

Thanks for sharing Bob. :notworthy:

Since I lost my HR, does it mean I lost my PR and top listings too? If I repent, can I get them back? PLEASE????

Oh No! Where is the message cache so we can check for problems that may have led to HR0 penalties?

Hahahahaha....jokes on you, Kelly! :lmao:

Your HR 10 was very clever. How about putting up a real avatar now and building up your HR by posting? ;)

Well the HD has begun........... I went to sleep last night a 1 and awoke a 2 but I will wait till the HRgigglebot is done with its forum crawl to make sure it is a real 2 not a mirage.

Have a great weekend everybody or had a great weekend depending on what side of the planet you are on.

I noticed that you have several groups ("titles") like Member, Active Members, and Moderator.

Based of what I've seen so far, I think you should add the group title of "babbling loony" to anyone who achieves a HR or 3 or higher in less than a month.

I really want this title! It's my goal to get HR 5 by the end of the month. Please? I have chocolate! :)
