WTF? Anybody want to take a stab at this?

I got this in an E-Mail.

Am I being called a monkey, dumb ass or a genius?


"Your overt animation transmitts communicatory signals of higher implitude than your verbase loquacity."

  1. I believe implitude is a scientific term, not really a verb or an adjective.

    I think that he's saying your actions speak louder than words. I may be a Ph.D. but hell, I haven't had my coffee yet.

    You could always reply with the following in Latin-

    ""Heus, modo itera omnia quae mihi nunc nuper narravisti, sed nunc Anglice? (listen would you repeat everything you just said, only this time say it in English?)

  2. Lets break it down...purely and simply because its fun!

    Overt means: Open and observable; not hidden, concealed, or secret: overt hostility; overt intelligence gathering.

    Animation means:

    an·i·ma·tion (n-mshn)
    n.
    1. The act, process, or result of imparting life, interest, spirit, motion, or activity.
    2. The quality or condition of being alive, active, spirited, or vigorous.

    Transmitts commmunicatory signals, thats an easy one. Basically, the way you make yourself heard.

    implitude: I cant find that in the dictionary! I think this person means, what you are implying verbally....
    _ Verbase is not in the dictionary, I think he meant verbage the nearest i could find in the dictionary is:

    (spelling, jargon) verbage - /ver'b*j/ A deliberate misspelling and mispronunciation of verbiage that assimilates it to the word "garbage". Compare content-free. More pejorative than "verbiage".



    lo·qua·cious (l-kwshs)
    adj.
    Very talkative; garrulous.
    ********
    I deciphered it as this:

    the way you communicate is open and much better (what you are implying - implitude) than...

    but where the person loses it is, he is implying on the last portion of the statement(your verbase loquicity) which according to the dictionary means what you are saying is (verbase- garbage) - loquacity which is very talkative. so, a lot of garbage.

    you communicate much better than the crap you are writing?
    so with one hand a compliment is given and the other hand gives the insult.


    email back and tell him he has diahrea of the mouth and he should look the words up in a dictionary first.

  3. Thank you both. I have no clue intent of that. It was impossible to decipher and I had rather not go into that mind.

    Needless to say that will finish my communications with stuff like that. It gave me a headache.

    SkyWriter; I love Latin, and will start using that phrase.

    Bird; I doubt they have a dictionary but I will pass that on.
