Try Spelling THAT in your Alphabet Soup!


Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu


You probably think I dozed off after looking at porn and my head fell on the keyboard, creating the jumbled circlejerk of letters above, right? Wrong.

Oh, if only it were that simple. That is actually a name. I swear. It's the name of a hill located in New Zealand. I shit you not.

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu!!!!!

Holy effing shit. Try saying that.....period. I tried a few times, but then I got tired and started looking at porn.

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu has got to be the longest name of a place, ever created. If it's not, then my world scares me just a little bit more than it did a few minutes ago. I mean, if there can be a place called Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu and it's not in the book of records somewhere, that's just crazy.

I think I might have to get me a tee shirt that says "I've visited Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu and all I got was a headache from trying to say the fucking name and this lousy t-shirt".

Hmmm. That might make me rich. Nobody steal it. I've got this post time-stamped, you know.

P.S. According to Wikipedia, the name, translated from Maori, means: The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his flute to his loved one.

Wow.

Bring on the T-Shirts bro.
And that translation is hella gay.

ROFL @ that translation!!

It sounds made up. I like it. It reminds me of something out of a Tolkien book or something.

Well it could be made up, since Wikipedia is conducive to that...
cool, though! :)

My granddaughter is of Maori descent, so the tattoo on my ankle is a Maori tribal symbol with her initials on it.

I think I may have to add this word, though.

Dude, you get a t-shirt like that you better grow some massive boobs to wear it.

So, how do ya pronounce that?

You do realize the guy who named that hill was totally wasted at the time, right?
