Llama?

Postby Bert » Mon Jun 02, 2003 11:34 pm

I see that I am a Llama. Is there some play on words here? I looked in the dictionary to see if one meaning of Llama has something to do with classical languages but I didn't find anything. So... Why am I a Llama. If I were a Rooster, it would make sense. (My last name means -the Rooster)<br />Bert de Haan

hi Bert, no play on words... it is suppose to be a very odd default profile signature. <br /><br />The idea is that if it were blank a new subscriber might not enter in a profile signature but with it saying "I'm a llama", which is by all accounts very bizarre, it'll get you to change it. <br /><br />Just a little touch the author of this forum script added. I like it.<br /><br />Some board members are very clever and I have modified this line, my favorite Milito's "I'm not a llama... maybe a yak instead!"<br /><br /><br />jeff

[quote author=Bert de Haan link=board=6;threadid=140;start=0#677 date=1054596879]<br />I see that I am a Llama. [/quote]<br /><br />So am I, except I changed mine to read in Greek (in betaCode), to stay on topic. You can change yours too, using the "profile" button at the top of the page.
I, Lex Llama, super genius, will one day rule this planet! And then you'll rue the day you messed with me, you damned dirty apes!

I changed mine too now. I like your choice. I see you are not just any old llama but the llama. ( h lla/ma)

...but with it saying "I'm a llama", which is by all accounts very bizarre...
<br /><br />Not bizarre enough by my account... :P<br /><br />If you *really* want to have some fun with it Jeff, assign a default avatar! Choose something bizarre there and think what that might lead to... ;D

Hail to the llama's !<br /><br />There are plenty of llama's associated with the casting titles of the "Monthy Python and the Holy Grail" movie...<br /> :D<br /><br />Long live the llama's !<br />Fernand<br /><br /><br /><br />

If you are a small girl, how come you're an emperor?

Small girls make the best emperors! ;D <br /><br />Seriously, though, it's from the movie The Emperor's New Groove, which she is very fond of. I'm not sure if you've ever seen it, but the emperor's advisor decides to take over the country and accidentally turns the emperor into a llama. (She was trying to poison him.) <br /><br />Keesa

I have indeed seen the film and the llama reference now is clear, though we should all ask ourselves why Jeff wanted us to be llamas in the first place.

the quote is defaulted to this particular bulletin board. llama phrases are common within the programming world... it's an inside joke that they stick in wherever they can (even winamp has it, if you know where to look...).
