A primer for new readers

I suspect the latest from Dr. Deb will cause quite a few new readers to come here, especially since we got the coveted “Allah-lanch”. This post should answer some of the newbie’s questions about the “inside baseball” of (DHD).

DHD is a group effort, it would not be near as fun if the community of commenters were not around. Whenever you get a group together, some societal “weirdness” develops. Here are some clues…

You use some word and phrases that I don’t understand, help?

Batfrisch Crazy: A notch above “Batshit Crazy”
Frisched: Akin to “screwed royally”, or to screw yourself using the net
“teh crazy”®: Dr. Frisch’s antics
“teh vodka”®: The Doctor’s special brand of Vodka, akin to Ace’s “Valu-Rite Vodka” (Some here have suggested the Dr. Frisch drinks a bit)
“teh cycle”®: Refers to Dr. Deb’s nature to stir up “teh crazy” on Thursdays

What’s with “teh”?

I started using “teh crazy” in links to extended entries and it caught on. It really gained momentum (or is that JOEmentum?) when it started appearing over at Dr. Deb’s site and she objected to its use. From there it got applied to “vodka” and “cycle”, it’s a juggernaught!

Note: “teh” has been credited to the Ace of Spades HQ.

What’s with “®”?

It appeared in a Dr. Deb thread and I posted the way to make it happen in HTML (&#174) and it took off from there.

Update: Missed one!

Vodka O'Clock: The time when "teh crazy"® is scheduled to happen.

Also, DHD regular "Brian" claims to be the origin of "vodka". Honestly, I don't remember when I first saw it, it was not started by me.

She has a post up saying she will not talk about anything her lawyer told her not to.

One of me said:
"Anyone want to take the over/under on how long it takes for her to break her new code of silence on said matter? I give it three to four hours, depending on how soon vodka o'clock hits."

Hey! That "over/under" line is one of mine!

Sorry, sinner. But I will take responsibility for use of the word vodka. And would like to thank all who are helping make it a common usage over at u no wear.

From two days ago here.

"Hey, about the drinking thing. Let's all start using the word vodka in our comments on her site. Just randomly, you know. (Vodka spelled backwards can be used; it's pig-deb for active.)"

I get it! She can't talk about PW or JG so she's acquired another target to unload on. Already she's claiming the offending post isn't hers. Hasn't the IP been tracked already? Doesn't she know better?
Guess not.

I can't talk about the hombre from Colorado with whom i have unfinished legal business.

If that counts, then she lasted under an 1 hour.

Aaaaand, she's denying the froggy impersonation. She just doesn't get this whole IP address thingy, does she?!

Where is she denying doing the sock-puppet suicide note? She's being coy about it, she's not admitting it, but I don't see her out-and-out denying it explicitly.

sinner, brian:

I prefer "vodka-thirty," since it rolls of the tongue better than "vodka o'clock," but the clock usage has been more akdov lately.

More with teh vodka!

At 12:52 PM, Blogger brian said...

Sure, vodka thirty works for me. Maybe we should notch it up and start spiking her morning coffee.

At 1:14 PM, Blogger Sinner said...

"vodka-thirty" it is!

It has nuance! It could mean how many shots of "teh vodka" she has imbibed.

At 1:25 PM, Blogger Staci said...

Shoot, I might even hit teh vodka tonight.

What if one day we woke up, and there is this real sane post saying she was doing an experiment in psychology with politics and how she came about her conclusions was this blog. And how she really is a 'wingnut' and wanted to showcase how even 'wingnut' lawyers are nice.

I think she likes men deep down inside. Teh crayzee® needs to go back in the closet.

And I don't know, I've seen a lot of crazy being from Key West and now living in Miami, but this, well, is just, wow. Even the guy that rides his bike in South Beach in a neon polka dotted mini skirt and ruffled pirate shirt seems normal to me next to this nutbag.

Posted over at the frisch market:

Is it vodka:30?
Bring teh crazy.
