I have a headache from reading chatspeak.
It was still funny, though. *grin*

Lots of characters: *ded*!

I expect that someone could come up with some pretty funny Legolas and Aragorn dialogues, but at the cost of aspirin and other painkillers.

Hysterical, as far as I can understand it! :)

I thought that the conversation between Frodo and Gollum cut right to the chase.

I would be tempted to make up some of my own dialogue for favorite passages, but fortunately I don't have the text-messaging vocabulary.

All it needs now is cat macros. XD

Cat macros would work well for Fellowship, I think.

Had to look up this term on Wikipedia.

Thanks for teaching me a new term!

I feel so *OLD* right now. I hardly understand a word...

It's a whole different language! Maybe not one you need to learn.

I puzzled over some of the words, never having text messaged, but it's very visual, so I could figure out most of what they were saying.

kingzfoil just strikes me as hilarious for some reason.

I do chat and I do text message, but somehow I could never get past my inherent awe for language. Apart from leaving out full stops and not using capitalization you will not see anything weird from me:)

Hilarious. Did you see FOTR & TT further up the thread? Don't know how to link specifically to messages, but they're 119 and 120 on your link.
Favourite lines:
phr0d0: i can has qi8 lif?
6&lf: no

Also loved Pride & Prejudice at number 96.

Thanks also for the cat macros discussion. I also went to Wikipedia and wasted a happy hour following the links to snowclones etc. There's a world out there I never knew existed!

Oh, wow, thanks, I'll have to check out FotR and TT! I can hardly wait til I finish work!

Poor phr0d0 lost so many of the simple hobbity pleasures.

Me, I'm always happy to share the time-sucking simple human pleasures with others!
