Wuh Duh Fuh

Just try to figure out just “wuh the fuh” these people are talking about. A lot of it is in what we have called “Tarzan Speak.” Me Tarzan, you Jane. Some of it is just inopportune typos, but a lot of it just shows a lack of either the ability to write a coherent sentence or proofreading. And before you get on MY case about a typo here or there, there’s a BIG difference between a typo and blatant stupidity. I’m not slapping anyone’s knuckles with a ruler, no one is being forced to sit in the corner with a dunce hat on, I’m just pointing out some goofy mistakes.

The Hangover

Wuh Duh Fuh: Jewish Gay

Ok… A typo is forgivable. Everyone does them. But when an e-mail is littered with spelling mistakes, it doesn’t exactly make you want to write them back.

Wuh Duh Fuh: Touched Inside

Was there some kind of subliminal message in my ad that stated: “I’m looking for a guy who barely speaks English?” Nooo… It said I was looking for intelligent conversation. Tell me… how much of a conversation can you have with someone who doesn’t speak your language? Date: Sun, 8 Aug 1999 22:04:05 -0700 Subject: […]

Wuh Duh Fuh: King Tut

Some people have said I’m cruel for making fun of these “poor sincere men who write serious e-mails” to me. Right… How the hell am I supposed to take a guy who NEVER met me and wants to fly me to EGYPT seriously? Date: Fri, 30 Jul 1999 11:19:31 -0700 Subject: Ilook for you also […]

Wuh Duh Fuh: Hipper Doofus

Uh… I can’t figure out what this guy is talking about. Even if you read it phonetically, it doesn’t make sense. “Hipper?” I really like my Dew, and I’ve felt “hyper” after drinking it, but I don’t believe it has made me more hip than I was before. In response to: Wit and Sarcasm Out The […]

Wuh Duh Fuh: The Mimbo

It didn’t give much information, but he was rather good-looking, so (being vain & shallow), I responded…. Here’s excerpts from the exchanges, starting with his second email. how […]
