When you folk read the word "Genevernum" do you hear sing song voices going "Doot doo de doo doo... Doot doo de doo."

Genevernum

I should stop reading these topics so I don't have to worry about accidentally retaining the information. My head is already filled with enough trivia.

Can we get back to more interesting topics? Please!

And unfortunately, Google and Wikipedia can't help me. Not much I can do with "Doot doo de doo doo... Doot doo de doo." I hope Vlish explains.

In fact, curiosity is all that is keeping this thread open. :P

Edit: And, ironically, it is what kills kittens...

Type that word in to a search engine. It is a skit from The Muppet Show, probably one of the most brilliant musical comedy numbers ever done. The visual gags alone stand the test of time.

Never thought I'd have to explain this. This makes me sad.

Still not seeing the connection between the skit and "Genevernum".

Also, what visual gags? I saw no visual gags. There was the phone thing at the end, but that's about it.

Search Google for "Mahnamahna" and the first result is the skit.

In his mind, Delicious Vlish replaced "Mahnamahna" with "Genevernum" and, for some reason, he felt the need to inflict that upon us.

Edit: What a place for Dikiyoba's 1500th post.

Genevernum and Mahnamana don't even have the same number of syllables. And it's very hard to get a sense of the tune when it's being typed.

They don't?

So does "Geneforge", if you pronounce it "Geh-neh-for-gé." =P

And so does "worthless piece of crap" if you pronounce it "spid-web soft-ware".

My curiosity has been satisfied.

Further harm to kittens will be prevented.
