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?

now if anyone is wondering if this is how i really speak when i'm not self-conscious, well, it depends you know!

in this thread i've of course made my pronunciation worse and thicker on purpose, but my speech, in any language, is often quite varied in quality.

getting back to butchering your names. let's start with a remake of @schratze including the current screen name.

(and also unlisted from now on. i should have done it from the very beginning, sorry for clogging timelines!)

@Stoori this is all I ever wanted.
That and maybe to hear "paravirtualization" again

@Stoori awwwww 💚
this is not as thicc as one of our teachers but it send me back nonetheless :D

@Stoori "paravirtualization AWALABLE" was such a meme honestly

@Stoori This is perfect because now I have an audio file of someone saying "caffeine free diet pepsi" in thick Finnish dialect, which is something I didn't know I needed until now.

@Stoori amazing!! "kamrathobiiti" is something I will cherish, perfect finnish butchering of it 💜

@Stoori I don't think I ever thanked you for this, so... thank you, these are all entertaining!

@Stoori oh right the only way to butcher it is with a /s/
