Right, we’re back after MoroniCast #0! For our second podcast, we’re addressing some language issues.
Specifically, how to speak like you’re from Northern England, mate. As it gets a bit complex here. Luckily, we’re your “friendly” guide!
The Stuff in MoroniCast: Episode #1
The reason for this episode is to address some of the language we use on this blog and out other communications.
We want to clear up proper pronunciations, so you can all go forth into the world and pollute your local dialects with grunts and verbal laziness.
As such, listening to this podcast you’ll discover phrases such as:
- Whereaya? (or just “Rayya?!”)
- You startin’, mate!? (if you want a fight with someone)
- Excessive amounts of profanity
- Mr. Wapojif’s creaky chair
Once you’ve mastered these phrases, we expect you to head out into your local community to baffle friends, family, and colleagues.
Or should you ever visit England, particularly areas such as Manchester, then you’re well equipped to overcome perils like:
- Engaging in conversation with angry Northerners.
- Becoming lost and needing to hail a taxi (i.e. Just yell, “EH!?”).
- Ordering food such as bangers and mash in a pub.
- Arriving at your hotel, but needing to traverse a small army of chavs outside asking if you’re “Startin'” or not (i.e. Indicate you, indeed, are not startin’).
The other purpose of this podcast is to ensure you’re all spreading the correct use of Northern slang about the place.
Seriously, we don’t want you getting “o’reet” wrong. Okay? It’s important you respect English culture as we’re a precious lot who fly into a rage if so much as you diss the Queen out.
As such, we’d now like to conclude this blog post by playing the national anthem.
Except we’re totally not going to do that, because we think the British national anthem is utterly appalling.
