Orla is the name of the dog in my profile picture (by the way I copied it exactly from my Stack Overflow account)

Nice!
That was what I tought at first.
By the way I have tought some wordplays with the dog's name wich probably would sound more confusing than funny.
I'm not sure if I should post it here, create another thread or just take it to myself...

Did you think I meant the coast is a dog? I suppose I'm confused because I don't know Portuguese. I don't think the name comes from that though.

I think it's from the Irish name

If you take out the R and put a H at the front it means "Hello" in Spanish and if you remove the LA and put a B on the front and put "njou" at the end and move the R to the end it means "Hello" in French.

Yeah!
That's the spirit!! :lol:

Edit:
Post edited for safety!
It was a collection of mostly incompreensive badly written bad jokes, from a guy (who's trying to learn and practice english) that badly writes and barely speaks the language in question that could be badly (mis)understood and cause more problem than it's worth. :wink:
Thanks to who warned me and sorry for the inconvenience. :oops:

Sure!
A friend told me of a potential danger of it being understood in the worst possible way.
So I edited it, hope it's soon forgotten.
I saved a screenshot just in case...

I think I abused too much of the "thread teleportation" and (mis)tanslation/(mis)pronunciation puns.
Hope no one is offended, it was just a (bad) joke after all.
Sorry.

Wait, is my name implying that there's a sausage made out of a dog that bad? I'm confused.

Maybe off-topic but this thread is already completely derailed anyway, I would try to avoid avatar with animation, it's really disorienting.

Would making it slower help?

I guess, to some degree it is better than before. It just that the animation gets your attention while reading the thread. Even though I'm not looking at the avatar directly, I can see something flashing and react to it. It kind of make you lose your focus. Maybe it just me, it depends what other people think about it.

Gilbert's avatar isn't so bad because it changes slowly and gradually.

I hate animated avatars.
