    I'm stupod (sic)

    Hello everyone. This thread is a bit frivolous I admit, and largely a vehicle for me to go OT as much as I like without actually being OT, if you see what I mean, but I just wanted you all to know that I've just scored a bad reputation mark for my comments in the Queen thread from someone who says I am "stupod".
    Need I say more?!

    Anyway, how is everybody? I'm fine, thanks for asking! A little mournful as fencing has finished for the summer at my club, but I fenced not too badly in the novice end of year competition, and learnt an exciting new parry (neuvieme) in my last class. The sun is shining and life is good. I hope everyone else is having a nice day too; if not, feel free to rant here!

    Stupod? Is that like a tripod for a guy named Stu? What an odd thing to call you!

    I can relate... I got dinged for my post about the European elections with the comment being "whateer". Don't know what that's about..

    BTW there's always something like Norfolk to go to if you want to fence (I'll be there anyhoo)

    I got dinged for stating that I consider myself a moderate--in a thread that specifically asked posters to identify their political positions. Luckily, Craig has disabled the Negative reputation option for all but himself and the two moderators. Hopefully this will enable it to be used to hunt down trolls instead of discouraging honesty.

    Oh. A "stupod" is a small space transport used to take one's lunch (stew) in. Also, a type of nourishing vegetable (like a peapod) which can be stewed and then transported in a stupod. I thought everyone knew that.

    Maybe we should print up a T-shirt that says "I'm with stupod"

    I thought stupod was something you screamed at your opponent when the chips are down, and you feel that some verbal abuse that only you can understand is in order.

    What? What's with all those vacant stares?

    Like the Children of Israel, yearning for the stupods of Egypt . . .

    Where does the stress go on stupod? Is it Stu' pod? or Stu pod'?
    STEW- pod vs stu-PAWD.

    Actually stress is relieved by using the stupod

    As an englishwoman, I'm going to have to insist on a british pronunciation. So the stress is on the first syllable - STU-pod - plus, the first syllable is pronounced "styoo" not "stoo". Any jawa would agree.

    From a semantic point of few, perhaps a "stupod" is a rural peasant dish, a hearty but economical pottage of now-empty pea casings, made with the leftovers once the peas themselves have been sold to rich barons to pay a tax to the nobility (who probably only wield such power becuase some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at them). Boiled for sveral hours over a woodfire. With some added pig fat and wild garlic.

    If "The Simpsons" did a version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", they's probably use Disco Stu pods.

    Aaaand I am....done.
