The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I offer the following for your consideration and entertainment:

in place of "U r pownd"
---
"Sir: with all due respect and no offense to your honor, I submit this proof that I have bested you in all forms of physical, virtual, and mental combat and competition; I have acquired your chattel, your goods, and all your worldly possesions;  I am now the owner of all your debts, loans, mortgages, and all your obligations; Last, I have acquired the titles bestowed upon you and  the Letters Of Marque provided to you by any and all authorities.

Thus I am clearly your better and your superior; You are therefore beholden to me in all ways."


I always say, never use a single word when 97 will do.
