So, you might be thinking, “What in wide, wide world of sports is wot?” Well, luckily for you, I have an answer. As for the inspiration to the title of this blog, there once was a picture taken at a little bar in Portland, Oregon called the Hideaway. Witness that picture here:
It didn’t really mean anything to me at the time. After all, it was just part of a jumble of large wood letters up on the wall that spelled out GEWOTR. And yes, you’re right; GEWOTR is not a word. Not in the English language, anyway. But I thought it looked cool up there on the wall, so I leaned back and took a picture. WOT was all I could fit in, however.
So when it came time for me to pick an image header for this blog (in its original design), I thought this would make a good picture seeing as letters are involved and I’m mainly going to be using this blog for writing. Then, just to cover myself, I decided I should check to see if wot actually is a word. And whaddaya know? It sort of, kind of, isn’t really but actually is a word. According to various sources, wot is Internet slang for what, used in a dialectical and humorous sense. More interestingly, wot is also the 1st and 3rd person singular present tense of wit. And who doesn’t like wit? How fitting. Let’s hope I can be witty enough in this blog to earn the title of WOT.
So there you have it, folks. That’s what wot is. Or wot wot is. Baahaha. I slay myself.
And that’s what you get for reading the blog of an English major.
