Thank you H20

A storm has passed over, dropping the temperature a few degrees. Thank you water! Thwater.

What do you think is a better rule, when using Thanks/Thank You, and Bless You? If we say Thanks Water, should it just have the TH in front, so Thwater, or should the TH replace any consonants in front of the word, so it's Thater?

It's much easier to say Thater. Thwater is much harder to say, and the effort used to say it makes the joke less fun. Sorta.

And it's especially hard to say something like Thjason or thsir. It sounds like the jason or the sir.

I vote for the more-easier-to-say option! :P

Hmmm...but then Thanks Bao sounds like "Thao"...what the?

Silph said...

I never heard of prepending a th to mean "thank you" -- where is this being used?

Would "TY water" be any better? I mean, at least you can make out what the letters stand for, even if you never saw the convention before.. .

PS
Ya'll, don't forget to drink plenty of fluids in this hot weather, okay? :-)

it's this internet thing on YouTube that the waterlooer's starting watching, and introduced to us mississaugians. Without spoiling, there are about 8 episodes, each ~9 minutes long, that are a parody of those 1960-80s educational programs you see in school.

Next time you're over (speaking of which, Dave, I haven't seen you for 4 weeks) we can spend a few minutes watching a couple episodes. You'll find them quite enjoyable.

But.. but thanks bear and thanks ear would both be thear!... ;(

Alan said...

Indeed, I think it's been a long time since any one of us has seen you, David. We should meet up again sometime and catch up. We'd have lots to talk about. :)

And remember, you should always make sure to look around you.

"And remember, you should always make sure to look around you."

buh??

(Maybe it's a reference to YouTube, who knows... .)

Here's how they did it on Look Around You:

THank you ANTS. THANTS.

TH + ANTS = THANTS.

BLess you ANTS. BLANTS.

BL + ANTS = BLANTS.

So in Jason's case we would get:

THank you WATER. THWATER.

TH + WATER = THWATER.

BLess you WATER. BLWATER.

BL + WATER = BLWATER.

And if we want to thank Bao or anybody else for something:

THank you BAO. THBAO.
BLess you BAO. BLBAO.

Hopefully you can smash a bunch of consanants together and form a coherent sound.

Bao said...

I dunno, now it's less funny when david sees it. and I also, vote for the easier-to-say option, except in the case where it makes a coherent sound with the TH, like "R".

I personally just don't see the point of not using a space in between! To me, it serves no functional nor 'cool' purpose... it just makes things confusing for no real purpose.

Maybe I'm missing something here. *shrug*

Bao said...

yeah, you're missing something.

Thwater isn't hard to say -- think of thwart.
