I just remembered this sound file where i butcher schratze's name in my local finnish dialect.

Which gave me a cursed idea: for every boost I'll butcher *your* fedi user name too.

time to have a pause, i'll get back to new names to butcher a bit later!

puhhh, that was quite a job. now as a sideproduct i have a collection of weirdly pronounced fedi user names :D

waitaminute, it's boosted 31 times but i can only see 26 of them. perhaps people on some silenced instances are also boosting it without me knowing?

@Stoori It can't help that I never considered how my initials + "esq(uire)" would actually be pronounced when I made it my username, but I was going through a bit of a Bill and Ted thing at the time.

@samgai @floris well it's hard to butcher something that is so straightforward to pronounce in finnish :D

@Stoori yeah, it's the only finnish word i know...
