14: Wherefore what for

June 25, 2010

Since wherefore means why, I propose that all question words should have the ability to be paired with “-fore” to create interestingly redundant question phrases. Allow me to demonstrate:

Whofore: I would very much like it if this meant “when,” because it makes ridiculously indecipherable conversations.
-Wanna go see a movie?
-Around 8:30

Howfore: Who (I’m just assigning randomly from here out.)

Whyfore: This can mean “how.”

Whatfore: Where

Whenfore: What

Now, we can use basic algebra to create complex statements such as (wherefore)fore, which would simplify into (why)fore, which (as we learned above) equals how. So, “whereforefore” = “how”

With this system, there’s no end to how flowery we can make our questions!

Alright, so now that you’re following along, what is…

15 points to whomever figures it out first.
