I’m sorry, I didn’t quite hear you?

I said, philaltr cuhluhmnp bahtweck!

Errr…one more time?

UGH. I said fanri malhalus txiwis!

Still not getting it, sorry.

WLHPY HDAKTME MLEALPYKS!

The only appropriate thing to do at this point is smile and nod.

Even though they just said “You ran over a small child”.

Axing Questions


While the title may suggest as such, I’m not talking about what one does when they remove a particular request. No, I’m referencing what happens when someone mispronounces the word “ask”.

“Hey, I gotta axe a question.”

Do you? Well, by all means! Cleave that query in twain with thine large-wedged blade!

Not what you meant? Oh. Well, in that case, I recommend saying the word “ask”. Just like with “escape”, you need to use an “ess” sound. Or fake one if you have a lisp. You can’t just change it to an x.

Otherwise, I’ll need to axe you about your face.
