Here's a little ditty from our good friend Dickson....
I drank a bit too much coffee last night, and sat up thinking about all the stuff I've learned on the VMF. On top of all the mustang knowledge, I now occasionally find myself lapsing into "VMF speak" in other emails.
After a while here, most of us pick up some recurring phrases or acronyms. For example:
PITA / PIMA
and of course ,SWMBO... which seems to stump most newbies.
But think of all the time we could save with the following:
NAE - non-arguable edict
LAMO - ladies anti-mustang operative
PP - pony pass (free mustang day)
WORM - without residual malice
QTWF - quality time with family
MRPs - mustang-related pals
ELOHDs- enormous list of honey-do's
ROEGOT- rolling of eyes, gnashing of teeth
for example, a sample post:
"What a LAMO my wife can be! I was really looking forward to a PP WORM to go to the show with my MRPs, but SWMBO said no. After much ROEGOT her NAE was that I had an ELOHDs and needed some QTWF."
What do you think? (I think I have too much time, and excessive access to caffeine)
Remember also, that in mustang speak:
"Help" = assistance kids give that make tasks take twice as long.
"Saved Money" = NPD has a 2 for 1 sale on carbs, so I bought 3 !!!
"It's a quick flip car" = will be sold after 27 months of effort, at a loss.
"rust free" = rust hidden
"90% done" = 70% of parts there - unlabeled & unassembled
"working on our taxes" = posting on the VMF
Pity on those newbies who dip a toe into the VMF without an idea of what a "K" code car is, what SCJ means, etc...... Dickson
