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?
-Sure
-Whofore?
-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…
whatforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforefore-foreforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforeforefore?

15 points to whomever figures it out first.
