For anyone confused about the "Oi!" thing...
« on: 09.09.2010, 18:35:06 »

For anyone confused why mainly the British were shouting "Oi!" at each other. It's in reference of a TV show in the UK called "Mongrels", the clip with it can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhBIQX98tUw

hmm I watched the Mongrels show when it came but could not fit the Oi in that. I've heard it way before the show.

Also it reminds Jibba's Ow epidemic from early years :)

The name 'leopard' may derive from an old notion that leopards were the result of crosses between lions (leo) and panthers (pard).

It was only intended as one little skit, really... ^.^ Thought it'd be funny to re-stage that scene from the second Mongrels episode.

It wasn't really planned that it then took the form of a con-wide meme ^.^ Sorry if it ended up annoying, hehe.
