I've read through several threads in this forum looking for an explanation, but haven't found one: why is "orly" so funny/not funny/cliched/whatever? What is it a pun on in the first place??

Thanks! :biggrin:

Ok, thanks!

I think it would have been much more funny if I'd gotten it from the start; now I've spent so much time wondering that it seems to contrived....*sigh* It is funny though. :smile:

I really do hate that bird. Yet it seems that in all my travels across the internet, desperately fleeing that moronic winged creature, I missed the oasis of GitP where, apparently, not a soul has heard of this phenomenon.

Well before Erfworld joined us.

I'd be surprised if it hasn't popped up in Friendly Banter or Silly Message Board Games.
