I understand a secret code.

Okay, maybe it's not secret.

And maybe it's not code.

BUT. I understand it.

Haitian Creole.

Who'dve thunk?! Well, maybe knowing that nearly 80% of the vocabulary words in Haitian Creole are based on French, you might've thunk. But still.

In other news, yesterday I got some targeted spam email (here it is copy and pasted directly, minus the links--I hope you enjoy the glorious formatting, perfect punctuation and capitalization, grammatically immaculate sentence structures, and the impeccable spelling):

Hmmmm...seem a little iffy?

Yes, I think I'll order some Hayden, Ravioli--oh, sorry, Ravelli--and Schuman. Or--oops--was that Shoeman? And throw in some good ol' Avril La-cringe *cough* Lavinge while you're at it.

Possibly the person who wrote this ad had had a little too much Aquerilla to drink? Wait, no--my mistake--that's the name of a pop star, not an alcoholic beverage.

By the way, you may not know that this is Ian; I'm not sure my first comment was indicative enough of my personality, which may or may not be why you haven't approved it yet...I love emails like these, especially from Nigerian widows.

Ravelli... bahahah. Maurice's Italian cousin, perhaps.

So, you bought it, right?
