Whitemosquito, Stuff46, Theorbiters, D9ty7, Fatalveli, you guys complacently paltered with the truth about me. Phew! You swung the hyperbolic pendulum a little bit too fast for the clock's capacity of telling the time.

Who am I? I am nothing but an eunuch of language; a mere butcher, imbruing my own phalanges in the bowels of orthography. I am just a discarded arch-heretic in pronunciation; a pitch-pipe of affected emphasis; a nail-hammerer, who only aims at mortising the awkward joint of jarring sentences; a squeaking dissonance of cadence; a love-vendor of gender; a scape-gallow from the land of syntax; a scavenger of mood and tense; a murderous accoucheur of infant learning; an 'ignis fatuus', misleading of benighted ignorance; the senile pickle-herring in the puppet show of nonsense; an eccentric critic of ostentatious esteem; and the overly sharp decibel among the harpists' plectrums. sad

Drnoel, that word you claimed is not the longest in English; there is a plethora of longer words even in the dictionary.

Cheers!

Sir, hope you know I have to check the dictionary for virtually everything you just penned down. I just wish you could pass down to me your brain
