If people at business meetings behaved like they were commenting online, this is how it would go down. Brilliant and very funny for anyone who reads the comments. (NSWF language, obviously) David Farrar’s punters at Kiwiblog would love this. Via Neatorama.

    Damn, I can’t even get to make my ‘first post’ joke.

  • Mrs Smith says:

    What IS a ‘pone’? Anyone?

  • Me says:

    It’s “Pwnd” which means Owned, as in “Ha, you just got pwnd (owned)”

  • WithoutIssue says:

    pone is actually Pwn or pwned.
    Roughly it means to beat (totally) an opponent.

    From Urban Dictionary (mostly NSFW BTW)

    “Originally dates back to the days of WarCraft, when a map designer mispelled “Own” as “Pwn”. What was originally supose to be “player has been owned.” was “player has been pwned”.

    Pwn eventually grew from there and is now used throughout the online world, especially in online games.”

    Corn pone (sometimes referred to as “Indian pone”) is a type of cornbread, made of a thick, malleable dough made of cornmeal or hominy grits, shaped by hand and then baked or fried in butter, margarine, lard or bacon grease. Corn pone has been a staple of Southern U.S. cuisine, and has been discussed by many American writers, including Mark Twain. Typically corn pone is formed in two to three inch oval shapes and features a crunchy and/or chewy texture.

    The term “corn pone” is sometimes used as a noun to refer to one who possesses certain rural, unsophisticated peculiarities (“he’s a corn pone”), or as an adjective to describe particular rural, folksy or “hick” characteristics (e.g., “corn pone” humor). The term is sometimes intended as a pejorative, often directed at persons from rural areas of the southern and midwestern U.S.
