I’m with Jasper Fforde on this one; this is how it should be spelled.
You know he’s right.
There is a special Hell for people like you and Jasper Fforde, and it is called “Múspell”
Nope again. If anything, fahre ich zur Hölle.
But who among us is not guilty of doing something similar? You see a post or tweet somewhere that tickles you, and you take it at face value and share it? I admit that I have done it once or twice. At least Mark updated it.
Sure, I’ve been suckered occasionally. The difference between me and Mark is that I am a programmer who sometimes comments on the internet, while Mark is a professional journalist of more than 25 years and wrote this article as part of his job.
This needs more likes. And “Verify before reposting” should be a poster that everyone can print out and send to their easily-led relatives.
Although this also works:
By the way, I’d not come across Jasper Fforde until you name checked him. I’ll have to find some of his works; they sound a laugh. I’m suffering from a lack of Terry Pratchett in my literary diet and could do with a substitute, even if this Fforde chap appears to struggle with spelling.
Fforde is Welsh…
And yes, he is a suitable substitute for Pratchett.
Basically, his books are set in several, but sometimes interlocked, alternate timelines / parallel universes. Intelligent, witty, fun. The kind of books you can enjoy more than once, and still find new details.
