Leet WoW Hacker

I was doing some grocery shopping today, and as I stood in the pasta aisle perusing mediterranean vegetable sauces I overheard this conversation between two middle aged ladies…

“I found this strange payment on my credit card statement today… My son was the last to use it to pay his phone bill, I questioned him about it and he said it was for some WoW thing. He said it was a game, but I’m not completely sure, I think he might be one of them hacker kids.”


“He always uses these strange sayings, like ‘owned’ around his sister, he said ‘FTW’ yesterday when I brought home pizza for dinner. I don’t know what they mean. I think it’s hacker speak.”

“I saw a documentary on them, they could make free phone calls and everything! They called the Pope, Oprah and the White House!”

“Really? Maybe he’s doing that; calling all his friends for free and, shit, I hope Telstra doesn’t find out and sue us!”

I couldn’t help but laugh at this point, the sheer stupidly of the conversation brought out a chuckle in me, as I laughed the two ladies turned and looked at me. I had to think of something to say to avoid being rude…

“You know, if he starts saying he’s doing raids, watch out…”

I paused, looked around, and then leaned in closer…

“It’s a secret WoW code word for hacking into government computers.”

I nodded knowingly and walked away. I meant to be sarcastic, but it seemed to come off as honestly and insight. Oops. I would like to take this opportunity to say sorry to the poor young lad whose WoW fun I have ultimately killed. So sorry. So very very sorry.

I totally owned you.

  1. wow, just… wow, you totally pwned that kid… in other news, I find it frightening how much ignorance does to increase hysteria.

  2. Jim, I did indeed. I was having a bad day; suffering from PMS, being told off by a receptionist for being two minutes late to my appointment, no lactose free chocolate in stock, having family members try to hit me up for money. I get overly sarcastic when I’m annoyed. :P

  3. Oh. My. God. :D

    I wish I had the opportunity to do something like that! That comment is just loaded full of seven kinds of awesome!

    Keep it up. hehe.

  4. That is just so funny. Hope it wasn’t your local shop. You’ll get know as that inside “hacker”. Anyway you just saved someone from years of WoW slavery.

  5. My my aren’t we still full of our selfs. we think we sooooo smart, now it all!!! Must be so cool to be you and know it all

    little Bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. (WOW), at least I understand the difference between ‘now’ and ‘know’ and don’t spend my days molesting exclamation marks. Your grammar is a travesty.

  7. Mr WOW, whatever your name is.. You spell like a 6yo and act like a spoilt brat who is angry with his mommy for taking away his WOW too! Boohoo… Kitta rocks and you’re just jealous. Little bitch is a name for you.

    Blog was sooo funny Kitta! Keep it up! :D

  8. Guffaw, Parents!

    That conversation you overheard reminds me of something Microsoft (I think?) brought out a couple years ago.. It was this feature on internet gaming, 1337 Speak, and how to make sure you’re not bullied on internet games and such.

    It never ceases to amuse me when someone writes a paper on stuff like ‘gamer talk’ and tries to intellectualize it (like this).. and just picturing people like those two ladies reading something like that.. rofl.

  9. Might have suggested she listen closely for a word sounding suspiciously like “Prawn” (aka pr0n)… Code for I’ve hacked the Russian silo codes.

    I think I’ll apply as a grocery sacker in Perth. Too fun!

  10. Ran across this site unexpectedly, but what a read for this one!!


    Great work in the write up, had me laughing the entire time.
