Thursday Internet Tradition: Linguist Llama

Hoydens are aware of all Internet traditions! But we share our hard-won cultural knowledge! This week, we introduce you to the tradition of the Linguist Llama. These wide eye-lashed eyes have forgotten more about declensions than you will ever know!

This is an open Linguist Llama thread.

Please post a link to a FULL webpage, rather than a direct link to an image only – that is, no URLs with .jpg, .png, .gif (etc) on the end. This makes our admin image magic quicker and easier. Just copy and paste what’s in your URL bar, and we’ll go fetch the embed code. **If you post the embed code, it will be automatically stripped out.** Thanks!
