Tales of the Weird

Posted in Weird WoW with tags , , on July 6, 2011 by tomeoftheancient

I just sneaked in here to to try to write this post. My husband is off for the week so I may get busted. We’re doing the kind of stuff you need two people for, kind of a tag team. He takes his bike in for brakes and inspection. I pick him up. The neighbors went on a camping trip and I now have four big goofy dogs to take care of rather than two, soooo, not much WoW time.  BUT!!! I will make time for this tale of the weird, perhaps you know what it means.

Yes, it’s another one of my weird self portraits of one body part. In this I needed a chin in a certain position, so the chin is mine. Anyway…

This morning I went to Uldum with my hunter to get some Volatile Life for my scribe. A character, same faction as me started to follow me around doing the whole dancing around the node thing while I tried to pick it. Now this is usually done by the opposite faction while flagged so I couldn’t figure out what they were doing. They didn’t try to pick the flower either.

I inquired as to whether they needed/wanted something. In response they said, “u r 1 baf goat”. Okay, I admit that my typing can be less than stellar on occasion so I thought they were trying to respond and it was some kind of a typo.

Early on in my WoW career my Hunter found herself in a guild where she could not understand ANYTHING her guildies were saying. In an effort to communicate with the younger generation I became a frequent browser of the Urban Dictionary frantically looking up unfamiliar words in the vain hope that I would be able to figure out a response. So, I’m just saying I do now have some familiarity with leet speak and interweb memes but seriously, u r 1 baf goat I have never encountered before.

This continued for quite some time. I’d make an attempt at communication and they’d continue following me calling me a baf goat, so I assumed it wasn’t a typo.

So I know about pop tart cats and bases that belong to them, but goats? Is this a new WoW meme, was he trying to author a new WoW meme? Am I launching a new memer’s career by writing about it? I don’t know why I can’t let this go but it was kind of spooky, I finally just hearthed out after it became clear this child of the damned wasn’t going to tire of following me.

HaHaHaHaHa! I think I’m going to get done with this post without being detected. I guess I’m just 1 baf goat!!!
