OK. After crossing my eyes and unfocusing my brain, I think the poor guy is looking for this glurge as it seems to fit the 'played outside without cell phones' bit. I also think that he may have heard it on the radio or tv, thus the '810am' phrase. I am at a complete loss to explain the date business at the end.

What do I win?

Comment: My name is Sandra. I am a college student at
Miami-Dade Community College. I Had sent more than 200 emails. I don't
receive any confirmation number email in 3 minutes as you said. Not only
this, but also when I forward the message to my friends, they received it.
but in my email it wrote faillure to delivery. What happen. What is this.
My another question is:" I don't see you mention that you will write
people by email. How will you contact this person for the check. I still
believe and don't believe in that. I am confused. Help me please cause I
still have a bunch of email. Cause I speak Haitian Creole, Spanish,
French, and English. I love chatting for fun. Thanks Forward

sorry. my bad.
BTW how is creole different from just french? or is it just like patois? should creole count as a separate language? if so then I could count yucatan spanish as an additional language I speak.

Ok, while I have seen at least one dictionary use "creole" as partial definition for "patois," it really works like this:

A patois is a regional dialect using different words/grammar than the base language, but descended entirely from the base language (or retaining words/grammar/usage lost to the base language).

A pidgin is a common tongue that is native to no one but used for mutual communication among different language groups. One language is usually the base language, with a simplified grammar, alternate words (to accomodate different phonemes) and borrow-words from multiple languages.

A creole is basically a pidgin language which became a native language. In Haiti, for example, we have French as the main language, spoken as a pidgin by the various linguage groups with borrow words from multiple African languages plus new words that are either corruptions or combinations from any or all of the multiple languages. Over time the Creole became the native language.

My mom is from the Seychelles Islands, and she spoke (has forgotten much of it) what they called "Creole." I believe it is different frrom New Orleans Creole. It is also known as Seychellois (pronounced Say-Shell-Wah), and is a mixture of French, English, and African dialects.

Actually, after I read this, it kinda creeped me out. For some reason, I read it as a suicide note, perhaps because:

Either he no longer wishes to have Snopes' leave to drop down from a particular placement, or Snopes is bending over and dropping trou. And this guy doesn't like it.

Subscriber, your lack of knowledge is also really annoying. Here, have some candy and watch some TV. You won't be bothered by your lack of knowledge anymore.
