Oh no, I have lost the game!

Post by tubeguru » 03 Jan 2010, 21:12

Thanks to a suggestion (and my own hatred of the phrase), I have added a word censor to convert all instances of "oh no, I have lost the game" into "oh no, I am a stupid twat".

Unfortunately because the censor is in place it has converted every instance of "have lost the game" into "am a stupid twat". See?

If you've got this phrase in your signature you'll see what I mean ...
One thing only do I know, and that is that I know nothing - Socrates.

I wondered why his signature changed today.
I can't remember exactly what it was before though... I want to try and trigger it :)

If you want to show us what the original phrase was, just write it out and stick some BB code in the middle - I.E. "original [/b ]phrase" (but without the spaces, obviously).

Well I can't replace "just lost" because that's a phrase that could be used in normal conversation. :)

But on the other hand "I just lost" isn't the same without "the game" on the end so you lose the effect (but not the game).

Except that the purpose of writing "Oh no, I just [etc]" is to make other people lose the game, and everyone who reads this thread will now know that mullardo's signature is referring to "the game", so they will therefore think about it when they see it and therefore lose, satisfying the message's original purpose.

Looks like I just lost the game then.

It seems like the point of the censor has been defeated...

Well it can stay for now until someone mentions it again in four years' time.
