Real life counterparts in the FBA Universe...

Not everything about the FBA Universe has been documented yet on WikiFBA. And even if it is, this is the place to hold discussions about the world that these furries exist in.

Real life counterparts in the FBA Universe...

Postby MartineauQC » September 15th, 2014, 7:09 pm

Hello again, there something I seen not to long ago, is that some have done it part to changes some well known things so we don't get any copyrights issues...I figure it would be a good idea to keep a topic where we catalogue any bits of pieces of informations we have so people know what to put if they are not sure...

For example, one I seen in one of Julian and edwin stories...Snoutbook instead of facebook.

Anything else?

I've always been partial to 'EweTube' for videos, myself. ;)

Pretty much, yeah. :P In the meantime though I can throw together a quick list as a starting point. (This is just stuff from off the top of my head.)

  • Android - Don't know if it's been decided, but I remember suggesting "Andrill" (as a pun on "mandrill").
  • Facebook - Snoutbook
  • iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc. - oPod, oPhone, oPad, etc. Really, OMEN Technologies is the FBA universe's equivalent of Apple.
  • Nirvana (the band) - Girvana
  • Twitter - Tweeter, although in practice the two names are used interchangeably (largely because we actually do use Twitter)
  • Youtube - EweTube

Think it should be a section of the FBA Culture page, or a separate page on its own?

I think nomenclature could be its own thing. Might get a little crowded on that page otherwise since I know there's a lot to cover on there already.

Maybe some slang and gestures as well?

"He needs to lay his head": Used by birds, egg-laying reptiles and mammals to say someone has his head up his ass.

And there is no more forceful way to say "shut up" than to physically clamp someone's muzzle or beak shut.

On the subject of celebrities:
- Justin Beaver is obvious
- Amanda Palmeerkat has been mentioned
- I referred to "Keeping up with the Caracaldashians" in a tweet
- Trent St. Croix has mentioned London Doubletree, a furry counterpart to Paris Hilton of as-yet-unspecified species.

I once referred to Lady BaaBaa in a tweet - the idea of a sheep in the very individualistic and un-sheep-like role of Lady Gaga is hilarious to me. I think Jtigerclaw (maybe?) once mentioned a different Lady Gaga equivalent, though. Anyone else remember what that was?

Also, there's Herdee's, the fast food chain that Victor Vos shills for.

What are your thoughts about taking Gatorade and making it something like Crocidade?

I updated the page with tables! Yay!

Keep 'em coming guys. I'm sure there's a bunch I've missed. I know people have mentioned airlines and hotel chains.

And what's the full name of Waldrop's sandwich chain? Ol' Smoky's...?

I had used the term "Infuriade" once to try and refer to the equivalent. Rolls off the tongue easier as well. Pun on "infuriate".
