I’m selling this iPod Nano on Craig’s List because the volume down button recently got stuck. I got it over a year ago through Apple’s replacement program after sending in a first generation iPod Nano I bought on Craig’s List for $20. The guy I bought it from found it in a couch he got when someone put it out in front of their house with a “FREE” sign on it. So he made twenty bucks on a free couch and I got a new Nano. Everybody wins. I named it Sofa King.
OK, back to the point: I was happy to see that I got a reply to the Craig’s List ad. Until I opened it:
No punctuation. Just “Wanna trafe” with a link to my ad. No real words in English. I imagine if he had an actual ability to communicate he would have written “Do you want to trade?”
But not him. He typed and sent off an email that said “Wanna trafe”.
Well, I couldn’t let such an opportunity pass. So I decided to attempt to communicate with him in his own alien language. (Besides, I don’t wanna trafe. Or trade, for that matter.) I replied:
Trafe burna sharn delag wunga.
I used his alien word first to tip him off that I was replying to his non-English with my own non-English. I’m sure you’re shocked to learn that it didn’t work. He wrote back:
Still. Not. English.
Come on, dude. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows that a person who would type “Trafe burna sharn delag wunga” is not going to explain himself in a rational manner.
I’m clearly not rational, as evidenced by my subsequent reply:
Merdy folar bluge argen pleev.
I’m still waiting for a response.
