"Gratz" explained

Post by Phytotron »

So, early this morning we had some rather heavy weather move through. I was watching the local news, and they were zooming in on the radar image, overlayed with the names of all the small towns in its path, right. And there it was:
Picture 1.png
http://www.city-data.com/city/Gratz-Kentucky.html
http://www.uky.edu/KentuckyAtlas/ky-gratz.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gratz,_Kentucky

Now, the reason for why all these kids in Armagetron keep making references to a small town in Kentucky with a population of less than 100 remains elusive, but at least now I know what it refers to.

Next up, the ever-inexplicable "gz" and "mg."

Gz is an abbreviation of gratz... GratZ and i dont think i have ever heard mg. possibly you are thinking of gm which obviously means Good Match. btw do you even play this game. i never see you play.

Fixed. Swampland no longer exists. (For now, that is. That may sorta change soon, maybe. Stay tuned.)

You never see Phytotron play, true.

This is why old people should not be allowed to use the internet. Phytotron, try using Urban dictionary, your Facebook friends (if you have any), or the World of Warcraft forums when trying to explain terms used on the internet...

I wasn't expecting any negative feedback from this O.o; I loled when I saw it xD. Funny coincidence and I thought it was pretty witty. You can read my former posts with Phytotron/Phytotron and see we haven't got along the best, but this is pretty great haha.

Edit: Rudy must have posted this the same time as me haha. Anyways, +1 for Rudy (who's mojo is far too dope).
