Alice the Sloop Reply to this Post

We did have a chat page on YYedia about the new Alice LE Paint & Names

But It appears, someone threw it out with their baby rattle.

My point is most of the adjectives listed at present came from myself by, gleaning names from the YYpedia Cerulean Bazaar, and then cross checking them with the /vwho On the Cerulean Ocean.

I also got 1 name from my own crew, 2 names came from Lord Franklins crew and 1 from another pirate (sorry don't have your name, see baby rattle).

Point (1)
Why could I not find on both the dub oceans, any (Alice LE Sloop) names of sloops for trade or sale, as you do find on the sub ocean? Not even a swap for another fish name!

Point (2)
To rename a ship of any size, not just this new (Alice LE Sloop) you need at least 6 rogue marks, to rename with an adjective & fishname.
We are all directed to dictionary.com to verify that the name request, is a valid adjective

Burbling is not listed as an adj also Burble, but if you scroll to the very bottom of the page. Under slang it lists Lewis Carroll & Jabberwocky.
Frabjious is not listed as an adj; it's not listed at all. Not even a link to another word!
Frumious a great word invented by Lewis Carroll as a blend of fuming and furious.
Galumphing another phonesthemic invention of Lewis Carroll, perhaps a blend of gallop and possibly triumphant

Anyway that?s just a few the point is I would like to suggest that on the Alice ship page we add that
Due to the nonsense of many of Lewis Carroll's words many of these adjectives may not make sense. As true adjectives they may have been Snarked or Jabberwocked!

Your thoughts are welcome .

Talking about this page? Looks like everything is still there. And even if someone deleted anything, you can always check the "History" tab for that page, and see what was once written.

...You're welcome.

Frabjous is listed as an adjective? Check your spelling. Regardless, this is not he first time LE ships have come with not-adjectives. There's an OM comment about it somewhere. Normal rename rules still apply.

Frabjous is in my dictionary.

Fun fact, though: When Jabberwocky was written, "chortled" was just as made-up a word as "frumious" and "bander-snatch".

You will softly and suddenly vanish away,
?And never be met with again!

Heh. :-D
Did not know that. (Then again, I'm constantly impressed by how many words Ol' Bill Shakespeare created, and how many of them are still in use today!!)

I now have one of the images of Fawful saying "I have chortles!" from Bowser's Inside Story in my head. Thanks a lot =P.
