    Hi Everyone.

    I used to hump around a ton of full frame Nikon gear. I love the OM-D for so many reasons that the affore-mentioned gear has now been sold on to a younger stronger sole.

    Anyway, I just thought I would share a shot from my local pub taken with my new friend the OM-D and the Pany 25mm 1.4. Sometimes you just have to stop playing with new toys and grab a bite and a pint.

    Really? I recognize three English words but the rest seems to be from some unknown dialect or language.

    Thanks for the translation and the fish and chips do look good. I wonder why there are no mushy peas, if, as I suspect the OP is in England?

    "Oh my God, those fries look so good, and right now I am very hungry that if those fries were in front of me at this moment, I could just eat them up"

    LOL wow this thread is funny ;)

    To enhance the already-given explanation earlier...

    "ZOMG" is an internet meme that plays off of "OMG" (oh my God). I believe a great few internet memes come from people playing online role-playing games (think - World of Warcraft, Everquest before it, etc) - there's lots of text chatting and people tying in a hurry sometimes, and ZOMG could be a typo that "took off" so to speak -- the typer was attempting to hit "left shift" and instead missed and hit "Z" ;)

    "teh" is another internet meme - it's a simple (and fairly common) misspelling of "the"

    "nom" is our final internet meme - it's representing "delicious food or the exaggerated sound or actions one makes while consuming delicious food" (nom nom nom).

    I see! So while not a completely unknown dialect, it is nonetheless known primarily, I take it, to cultural anthropologists and certain young men playing computer games in dark rooms in their parents basements.

    I wonder if anyone actually uses these new "words" in speech or if they're confined solely to the lesser known recesses of the interwebs. It might be interesting to eavesdrop on a couple of people conversing in these terms. Probably impenetrable to the average person but no doubt quite fascinating to observe.:smile:

    Well it's been a few years since I actively played, but I promise I never played in my parents' basement :2thumbs:

    From what I can gather (I'm upper enlisted in the military, so a great many of the people around me are aged 18-24), most of the younger folks don't actually talk light that. Some may make the occasional reference by actually "talking meme" but it's pretty rare, and usually done purposefully as a punchline befitting of a meme reference.

    I have briefly seen people on gaming-oriented TV channels (watched by my aforementioned co-workers during their break times) and sometimes the hosts of these channels would throw in "meme slang" and it made everyone cringe.
