Genesis of my blog url

September 29, 2005 Posted by Vijay , 2 comments
Well well well, some confusion people. I love cartoons, Tom & Jerry, and Looney Tunes. Bugs Bunny is my favorite. I know, I sound now like a 2nd grade student writing an essay on the topic "What do you like ?". But when it comes to cartoons, I bet no one can hide their excitement, least of all me :)

Coming to the crux of the matter, I created this url, (look at the addressbar please, do I have to type it again ??!!) and another yahoo id of mine, after I heard the character Sylvester in the Looney Tunes strip say - "Suffering Socrates". Well, that's what I HEARD , while watching it on television. And , being impulsive, I found such a thing funny, and promptly went ahead and created a yahoo id on those lines and now the url for this blog. Well, guess what ? Apparently, Suffering Socrates is NOT the dialogue that Sylvester says in the Tweety Bird mysteries and the Looney Tunes cartoons. It goes like - "Sufferin' succotash.". Sigghhh, now, that's what I call hearing impaired. But I want to justify my url name for the simple reason that, the accent of Sylvester was not quite tangible. Hence the mistake, but I really don't regret. I think sufferingsocrates sounds more funny :) ..

And FYI .. succotash means - fresh corn and lima beans with butter or cream Really, I don't see any resemblance at all with Socrates !!!

It certainly would be an honor for socrates to have his name as ur url,if he still lives today, isn'it?
