I guess it's not worth bothering about.
I don't have the time nor wherewithall to attempt
translation, sorry. But I do appreciate your taking the
time to mention me personally.
I believe you are saying something about texting on
mobile phones. I don't believe in texting, never have,
never will. If I want to talk to someone I will call them
and talk voice to voice, nothing of the modern fadism of
lol and all that junk. I am a person-to-person person, no
jive lingo.

I normally try to avoid text speak while texting but mabbogtebby turns it into an art form. I have been reading this thread with great interest - backwards. I have reached the looky hoss story. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Looking 4ward to reading the rest. Hi mabbogtebby and gallant ted. B f n n bcn u l8r leg8r.

Thanks for your more than kind answer, mabbogtebby. Your warder must be giving you good guideance.
Thanks to Avy's "bcn u l8r leg8r." I understand some more of MBT 's poetry. ( never got far beyond the b = d thing.)
It 's a bit like in the 1 -2 snowed in thread.
@Avy, nice little tinker man. (I think)

Gallent ted's writing is also poetry. Love the rhythm in the lines.
I also thought it's just like the snowed in game. As much fun.
Tinker man or Saucepan man. Thanks.

Greetings Comrades

Albear Camoo here, your everyday-being-in-the-wordy-world teddy bear. Iím great friends with GallantTed and MadDogTed. As GallantTed is out of town on business at the moment I had to take it upon myself to come in here and explain MadDogTedís approach to writing. I hope you all appreciate that this is taking a great effort on my part as I am very shy and reserved. But needs must, so here goes.

But before I start, Iíd like to point out that contrary to some opinion Iím very much as funny as GallantTed. Indeed, some say I am even funnier and itís oftentimes I had them in stitches in Slasherís Bar and Grill with my jokes and anecdotes.

But enough about me. This is about MadDogTed who is really shocked that people can't read his musings. You see, MDTed - and GallantTed for that matter - were not lucky enough to receive a proper formal education like me. MadDog Ted is self-taught. He learned his trade mainly from texting to his friends on his mobile phone. He genuinely thinks that this is the proper way to write.

Standardisation means nothing to him Ė itís really a case of making it up as you go along. Donít use punctuation, spell words as they sound and use shorthand (or shortpaw as us Teds would say),(you see, I told you I was as funny as GTed,(ha, ha, ha, or lol, lol, lol (laugh out loud) as the young texters would say).

Because he is a self-taught, he never quite got to grips with the proper use bís and dís. This is common with many youngsters learning to write and he is in no way making fun of people who are dyslexic Ė a condition which goes far, far beyond the confusion of just two letters and something which we Teds would never poke fun at.

Being a little uncouth and not refined like me, MadDogTed often uses some bad language in his writing. After all, not only is he a teddy bear but heís an Irish teddy bear to boot.
So b f n c n u l8r g8r means: be (f n) seeing you l(eight)er g(eight)er. Fn is sort of a swear word so Iíll leave that one to the less faint-hearted of you.

Finally his signature - mabbogtebby X. The X is not a kiss but the way he signed his name before he learned to write. His still gets his bís and dís mixed up in his name and by now has a block about it so thatís the way it will stay. Remember that this poor teddy bear has spent most of his life going in and out of the Borstal for Bold Bears.

I do hope this sets the record straight - or str8 as MadDogTed would say. (Ha, ha, ha, Iím on a roll now for sure Ė beat that GallantTed).

Thanks to all those who supported the Teds over the years. If you want to see my picture please use the link. Of course, contrary to opinion Iím the really handsome one.

All the best Ė be seeing you later alligator
