New Limited Edition Lephariad

The Ralph/Blat '08 campaign is pleased to announce the release of a new limited edition of The Lephariad, the grand epic tracing the adventures of a brave troll named Lephari (an anagram of "Ralphie") as he sojourns across a harsh, PIAPS-loving world on his quest to save America's Greatest President. Originally available only in separate HTML installments on the jihadist demlib hate blog News Hounds, The Lephariad has now been compiled in one volume and digitally remastered, and comes with authentic Medieval leather binding.* It can be downloaded, free of charge, here. All proceeds benefit the Ralph/Blat '08 campaign.

Here's a quote for you, from a real (amateur) calligraphy extraordinaire:

"What is that? Gothica textura quadrata? My eyes hurt, I'll read it tomorrow."

- Konservo

It's mostly Cloister Black; the first letter of each canto is Argor Biw Scaqh.

Makarios said...

We like to call the elaborate first letters, "Cadels."

Makarios said...

Questions:

1) Why is "libtard" spelled "libt@rd," only for the word "fucks" to be spelled out completely immediately following?

2) What does "PbD" mean?

3) Is "Paige PbD" (from News Hounds) a spambot or what?!?!

RalphyFan said...

1) We try to include more than just letters in our character sets. Progressives are friendly and inclusive that way.

2) It's a secret. Do your own research. (Hint - you are NOT one.)

3) Only if you view documented facts as spam. Which, for all we know, you probably do.

Makarios said...

Cool!

I did some research and found out what "PbD" means!

Here's a link.

Although I don't know why anyone would want to advertise that...

RalphyFan said...

Wrong. Context is everything...another concept you find elusive, Konpervo.

Makarios said...

PbD = Peanut Butter Demlib

Oh! How will we ever survive such blindingly witty repartee?! [snort!]

Sergei Andropov said...

ET,
To be fair, he is getting closer.

Makarios,
Some time ago, one of the OT moderators wrote a script that automatically replaces the word "libtard" in posts with the word "liberal", I'm still not sure exactly why. The "@" in "libt@rd" is there to prevent this replacement from happening; I do something similar, but since I'm a font fiend I replace the "i" with the character U+465.

vermontdave said...

makarios,
The Lephariad and PbD?
What kind of a troll are you?
You don't even care a whit about Ralph.

This ain't Think Progress.

et said...

I don't know, Sergei..."humor in mirror is further away than it appears," in my view. But we shall see.

Makarios said...

Excuse me, VermontDave, but I'll have you know that I frequenty AMERICAPHILE!!! regularly.

And does not The Lephariad (Canto VII, line 21) read:

"Around it stand the Newshound PbDs"

?

I am merely asking for clarification of some of the details of this epic masterpiece.

As for not "caring a whit about RALPH," that is just not true. I've even been mistaken for Ralph himself from time to time.

vermontdave said...

Makaroni,
I'm sorry, but you have no excuse.
So I will not.

Good evening, Sir.

theroachman said...

Come on Dave

Do you not see it?

Korso is in love with Ralph.


Us liberals do not care it your Gay Korso we are very open minded.

But you said you could post on Newshounds Off-Topic whenever you feel like it, Konnie.

All the answers are there, waiting for you, to your PbD question.

Oopsie - is there the teensiest of obstacles in the way?

Don't worry. Ignorance becomes you.

I'm allergic to peanuts and peanut products.

Note to self: Send Makarios giant vat of peanuts ASAP, C.O.D.

Makarios said...

Well, I finally cracked the case!
It's got to be the second to last entry on this list of acronyms:
PbD

Anonymous said...

Oh, Makarios - bad move!!

Newshounds Mods do visit here, I believe. You snipe at the PbD crowd, you'll be out on your ear, pronto.

Don't let the doorknob hit you in the...well...you know...on your way out...

What? Don't let the doorknob hit me on the ear? Okay.

But I am merely enquiring as to the meaning of "PbD." If that is enough to get me thrown "out on my ear," then I apologize.

Anonymous said...

Apology unnecessary, Mak - can I call you Mak? I'm sure that by the end of the week you will have given the NH Mods ample cause to banish you from the O/T. They, like most of the O/T regulars, have cut their teeth on more serious trollery than yours.

Also, you piss off the PbDs strictly at your peril.
