The list below expands on some of the acronyms and terms that I use frequently in this bogus blog. If none of them resonate with you, then please don’t waste your time browsing this blasphemous site. If one or more of the terms do stir up some kind of emotional energy movement within your being, then we have something in common – unless the emotional underpinnings of that energy are dislike, disgust, anger.

After you’re done reading the list, consider what “Rands In Repose” has to say:

But wait! Please disregard the Rands box above. If you read this blog, you’ll undoubtedly discover that Bulldozer00 is the exact opposite – he’s bitter and uninformed. D’oh!

    Dude, I detect some serious negative vibes in your acronyms. Are you getting enough fiber man? :-)

    • September 8, 2010 at 11:02 am

      lol! The intent is for them to be dualistic: both funny and serious = ferious. Call me a drama queen. Of course, the “f” in ferious doesn’t have to be interpreted as “funny”.

      Tell me you didn’t chuckle when you said “BOOGL” or “Bozeltine” or, especially, “DIC” to yourself.
