# Thread: I figured out what the name "Erfworld" refers to!

ERROR FUNCTION.

Now, if we take the graph of the Error Function, one could interpret it to mean that Erfworld is either: a high fantasy setting that was once a sword and sorcery setting, or somewhere in between the switch between the two.

Perhaps Parson contributes to the completion of transition to a high fantasy setting, by bringing about a Grand New World Order with the help of Stanley the Tool.

Hmm. It could go to the probability that a universe exists that is almost exactly like the games Parson designs...

Not totally convinced, but it's an interesting find.

Erf is to Earth as Dwagon is Dragon and Gobwin is to Goblin.

Perhaps. But we've not seen a word with "th" in it modified in the same way, only word with "l" and "r". So it's not a watertight conclusion that Erf=Earth, although it is the obvious answer. Sometimes the "obvious answer" is wrong.

Uh. I'm pretty sure he was joking, guys. And making fun of the recent Erf=Earth threads.

You win five internets.

Well, if I was making fun of the Erf=Earth threads, wouldn't, therefore, I be joking?

But, I was actually making fun of the tendency of people on this board to give even the silliest theories credence.

Thus.

This is the internet! No theory is too silly for at least someone to hold.

9. ## Re: I figured out what the name "Erfworld" refers to!

Is that a challenge, Mr. Teufel...?

Very well! I do hereby present with you the strangest theory that I can possibly fathom currently!

The world is run by a group of semi-intelligent egg people! Further, all webcomics? WRITTEN BY THE SAME EGG THING! On that note, these egg people are high in protein, while being low in mono sodium glutamate, or MSG, which makes them mighty unpopular in areas that enjoy consuming said product! Finally, Erfworld is, in fact, lampooning the movie Jaws! While, if you'll humour me, lampooning Hillary Clinton!

I rest my case... if I even had one...

I'll go sit in my corner, then? Very good, sir.

Well, yes, my point was that it was a decent joke in and of itself. Luckily, you also have a bunch of recent threads to make fun of too.

And on topic, the error function annoys the hell out of me. I dislike having to use that thing.
