Q: Why is HoarseMan called HoarseMan? Isn’t it supposed to be Horse?

A: The answer to this question is already on the About Page, but it’s included in the WTF posts because some people never bother to freakin’ click on the ABOUT PAGE!

In our typical way, we inside the mind of the HoarseMan have decided that we won’t bother to get specific in the name of this blog. Instead, we created a set of post categories that map directly to most of the options we were thinking about as titles for this blog. Here are the new post categories, and what they mean.

  • the Apoapsis: stuff gets written here when the HoarseMan is feeling way off center
  • the Apocarpous: the tendons in the HoarseMan’s wrists are getting tender from typing so freakin’ much – no not really, which would be a good explanation if the “carpous” part referred to “carpal” but it doesn’t. The real reason the HoarseMan chose this is so he could sneak by the censors with sexy stories about carpels being separated by a pistil or two.
  • the Apocope: Leaving stuff out at the end of…
  • the Apocrine: the post probably stinks
  • the Apomorphine: the HoarseMan is having an “off” day, or he’s trying to make his dog puke
  • the Aporia: there’s some intentional confusion or mis-definition in there
  • the Apostasy: the HoarseMan is going off in a different direction, away from his principles (if he had any)
  • the Apostrophe: O Goodness, the HoarseMan is talking to someone who isn’t there, or maybe something has been left out…
  • the Apothecary: did the HoarseMan miss his meds today?
  • the Apotheosis: an expansion of the HoarseMan’s consciousness

We hope this list makes more sense to you than it does to us. Don’t forget about our category friends…

  • 6th Period Civics – where the HoarseMan waxes political, which is really nothing at all like a Brazilian Wax.
  • WTF? – where HoarseMan responds to the aeonian questions “What is this all about, dear?” and “What does this mean, dear?” or perhaps “What the hell is going on here, dear?”

Q: What the heck does Apo-something mean, Hoarse Man?

HM: Apo-something means I just don’t know what yet! The easy way out would be Apocalypse…but it’s like way overdone. How many freakin’ movies can they make about it? So I started looking at alternatives. The internet is handy, but sometimes nothing beats a big fat hardcover Webster’s Dictionary. Take a look at the list below, and let me know what YOU think.

  • Apoapsis – Man, I’ve gotta say that certainly fits, same number of syllables, too. Sometimes I really feel like I’m a long way from my gravitational center. Out of the loop, almost.
  • Apocarpous – Sheesh! I don’t have any carpels, let alone separate ones. WTF is a carpel anyway? Sounds a little bit like the PITA tunnel I have in my wrist.
  • Apochromatic – First of all too many syllables. Not even going to waste time with that distorted image. (even a self-image)
  • Apocope – Wha…? Th… F…
  • Apocrine – we don’t do secretions here.
  • Apocrypha – Nope! I know who’s writing this crap. No doubtful authorship here. Hmmm… about that authenticity, though…
  • Skipping, skipping, skipping…a bunch of really boring ones.
  • Apologist – Like that ever happens, I should kick apology off the list, too.
  • Apomorphine – What d’ya think? Sounds a little hazy to me.
  • Aporia – This one has got to be getting close. The definition has a lot of big words in it, including literary
  • Apostasy – No, I’ve got no belief that this one is right.
  • Apostrophe – By Jove, I think this is it! I leave stuff out…and the stuff in here (the blog, not my head…ok, maybe in my head) is mine…mine…mine!
  • Apothecary – ask me tomorrow when I’ve taken my meds…
  • and last, but far from least…Apotheosis – thanks, you really shouldn’t, but hey if that’s what you think who am I to disagree?
