What's a "Yhw."?
An e-mail I just received contained quite a thread of prior messages. One of the other messages, from someone I've never met, contains:
Heh. The two meanings I found that I like in this context are
Your Humble Waiter?
Joe appears to have had a career change since last I encountered him. (And a name-spelling change for that matter.)
Perhaps this discussion could shed some light. http://groups.google.com/groups?q=Title+%22Yhw.%22&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&selm=af00ht%24dqp%241%40news8.svr.pol.co.uk&rnum=1
Young Handsome White
I contacted him.
See? I almost got it right! Well, except for the profession...
Ya, he *says* it's "your humble webmaster", but I'd bet dollars to donuts that he's thinking the not-so-humble definitions described above.
I bet you dollars-to-donuts that Joe Schlobotnick is one huge dork!
I had a Linguistics teacher in college that always signed his name "Frank Parker, POE." During an office visit, I asked him what it meant, and he said "President of Earth," and that he'd been signing it that way for twenty years, and had never been challenged on it, so he presumed it was accepted and correct. He was an unusual character with a big ego and subtle sense of humor, so it worked for him. He also said that in all that time, I was only the third person to ask.
God is just a myth. And if He isn't, then why the heck doesn't he return my calls?! :-P
Hey Wisea** - your message is interesting. You don't believe, yet you honor the imaginery superhero by capitalizing the name.
What can I say, I guess I'm ambivalent about H/his existence.
