Am I sorry or not?


One of the consequences of the New Internet World Order is that it is very easy to set up a web site like www.sorryeverybody.com and equally easy to set up a response like www.notsorryeverybody.com. This state of affairs clearly calls out for some sort of competition between the two. At dinner last night, someone suggested that there should be a site like www.amisorryornot.com? I guess it would have been funnier if the "not sorry" site had pictures of people not being sorry. Then "sorry or not" could have picked a picture and had visitors vote whether the person looked sorry or not...

(I have to admit in my consummate geekdom that I think that the funniest "X or not" site is www.amibiosornot.com.)

    Aha, somebody else who appreciates http://www.amibiosornot.com/!

  2. Nice sites :)

    If you understand Norwegian then these two sites are funny as well (in my opinion):

    http://www.ulv.no and http://www.sau.no

    (Little help: ulv = woolf, sau = sheep)

    "Wolves are <ålreite> animals, wolves eat among other things sheep"

    "Sheep are stupid animals, sheep are food for among other things wolves"

    What does ålreite mean? Is it a comic transliteration of all right? Do people say this?

  4. Tom: It’s an adjective created from the transliteration of "all right". Most people will just say it like in English. More info is available here: http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/ordboksoek/ordbok.cgi?OPP=%E5lreite&begge=S%F8k+i+begge+ordb%F8kene&ordbok=begge&alfabet=n&renset=j&alle_former=on

    It comes from writing often-used English words in a more Norwegian way, to protect the Norwegian language… Other examples are:

    pub – pøbb

    service – sørvis

    From what I’ve heard the "sorries" vs. the "not sorries" were pretty close. By about 51 to 48%.

    Um, A møøs byt my syster ønce.

  7. Matt says:

    From the sounds of Dan’s post, 1% (~1.5million) have been disenfranchised by the failure of anyone to register http://www.dontgiveashitwhathappened.com.

  8. James says:

    Last week there was a http://www.werenotsorry.com site that did have photos of people not sorry. Looks like it’s down now, though…

  9. Cooper says:

    Maybe you should mix this with a few days ago and do http://www.amiaccreditedornot.com?

    … I just wasted three perfectly good minutes looking at motherboards.

    What’s worse is that I think I giggled in glee over it…
