unfortunately, it’s the intrinsic nature of an ‘in-joke’ that it can’t be explained. you either have to be initiated into it, or in this case, spend hours poring over old lamebook posts until you get ‘it’. either that or just laugh along with everyone and pretend you know what they mean.
don’t worry though – you’re not frodo (although you probably don’t have a pool).
Lizzle, I did NOT know that…it would explain why I loose some of my closer friends to some of the less friend more acquaintances I have on FB in the update thing. Thanks, I’ll put the real friends in a list so I can bypass the others.
The Frodo thing… I read it when it was first up and loved it, but since then I’ve all basically forgotten what it was all about.
I think… two guys were arguing (jokingly, I think) about who they’d be in Lord of the Rings, and one of them said the other would be Frodo, and the other said he wouldn’t but the other guy would, and they argued about Frodo being crap… then some guy came in and explained that Frodo was a real hero and loyal etc… and both of them commented and said ‘this guy is frodo’ ‘yeah he’s frodo’ or something.
Don’t remember the pool, though. Why did the page get deleted?
yeah, no idea why ‘frodoh’ was removed, other than one of the protagonists noticed it on here and asked for it to me taken down. it was something along the lines of, ‘you are frodo because your house is like in the shire.’ ‘what? i can’t be frodo, my house has a pool.’ ‘frodo has a pool.’ ‘frodo doesn’t have a pool.’ i’m not quite conveying the awesomeness of it, but it was. i have a screencap of it at home i think. if it’s made up, it’s genius.
I get that the second group is intended for humour, and not as a real group for women who don’t know who fathered their children, but has anyone actually looked through it? Fck I want to smack the creator of it for the way he types.
