May you catch the bastard.

So, I did send a note to FB asking why they'd flagged you when Drag Queens are allowed to use a bogus name. No reply. Apparently FB doesn't owe anyone an explanation.

Haddasa Wiener is a good name, at any rate.

Decent name, especially if it is your own May I ask for a phonetic sounding out of your last name? Not to be insulting but my brain is sounding it out like the slang for a hot dog. That's a very yummy sausage like thing that you really don't want to think too long about what might be in it. Unless you just get kosher dogs that are all beef. Then I suppose it's alright to think about what goes into making them.

& now that I've clicked save I'm wondering if I wasn't insulting after all when I didn't mean to be.

I prefer tofu dogs myself. I swear, they taste just like the real thing!

Yeah, I wasn't sure if the name was legit, so I just kept it zipped.

Thanks for asking. Cool. They don't reply...I know that I sort of know why they picked mine and I'm sure someone dobbed me in as a fake account but I don't understand why they would have picked up Zriza as a fake account unless, as Z thinks, someone reported hers as well.

My last name is pronounced we_ner. It means "of Wien" like in The Wiener philharmonic. My guess is that back when people started to have last name my forefathers were from Wien.

What I don't get is that wieners are supposed to be from Frankfort, as in frankfurter. Even better,just say hot dog, although there is no dog meat in hot dogs.

And remember, class: when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking. Unless the word is German, when it's the second vowel, or if it's French, when you may as well just give up.

That's all fine n' dandy Cool, but I think you're forgetting that pesky ie business in English.

Thank you Zriza
