Bump

I just came to know that "Bump" is an acronym for "Bring Up My Post". Was I the only one who didn't know that? 

I didn't know it either. I thought it was used because it bumps a thread up to the top of a forum. I wonder if the acronym is apocryphal.

Yeah I saw it on Facebook, googled it and Urban Dictionary verified it. Both are admittedly very dubious sources.

We will bump every day until Benjen reappears in the books. Dead or alive, we must learn his fate. Not that we think this thread will actually accomplish anything, thus its presence in the Games forum. :D

I enjoyed this thread most when we were creating limericks back in the day.

 

There was a great ranger named Benjen,

Who got lost but has a strong engine,

He knows how to fight, so he'll be alright,

He'd even beat wighted Al Swearengen

 

(I had to see if I could rhyme with Benjen)

A meal worth tossage

Kept down might result in blockage

For in this GRRM age

We hear talk of Benjen sausage

Need to work on the form a bit, Darkstream. It's AABBA, with the Bs shorter than the As. But I like the reference to Frey Pie etc applied in a new way. Gruesome, but definitely creative.

There once was a ranger went missin'
To see him again we're all wishin'
He's sure to come nigh
with Stonesnake nearby
Til that happens we'll all be ice-fishin'

Where went once the dutiful crow,

Whose journey was so hard to know?

We think he'll come calling,

With snowflakes a-falling

And winter winds starting to blow.

Into the north Benjen went a shakin'

By the Others he could have been taken

Or to craster's keep

For a warm night's sleep

A frightful end as ranger bacon
