I believe that everything that ever needed to be said about this has already been said by my friend Quora Quorason. Vote #1: Quora Quorason’s answer to How would you parody your own writing style on Quora?
This answer is meant to be supplemental to that. Only it isn’t, because I am enamoured of my own recherché grandiloquence.
- I hate Quora and everything about it, and anyone who ever says anything good about it, I shall have no intercourse with ever. For more information, see my blog Malleus Calamorum.
- The Greek for intercourse is συνουσία, “consubstantiality”, where οὐσία “substance” itself derives from the participle of the Ancient Greek copula. (Get it? Copula.) One may draw sundry sociocultural inferences from this. But alack, this is not the forum for such an answer.
- Having perused at least one Wikipedia article, I will now hold forth with great, if borrowed erudition on everything you didn’t need to know about Perso–Moldovan cultural contacts.
I can substantiate all of this by adequately lachrymose personal experience. As the great poet Farrokh Bulsara once put it,
I’m just a poor boy
from a poor family:
won’t you play the fandango.
I trust that we can all draw a lesson from this.
