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.
