Just a LAMP - but 2 close to home

I just came across the lesson for the o’onyomi for older brother (and shipping him off to Kyoto). Having recently moved to Japan, and living in Kyoto, I had to share with my younger brother, and apologized for being a mouth with legs. I have this feeling I won’t forget this one.

That’s a nice way to attach a memory to the word. :wink::+1:

Question tho: What’s a LAMP?

Reason: I’m old and some of the entries on Urban Dictionary are, uh, problematic.

TIL. In this context, b/c Mario is an older brother, that it makes sense? Never came across LAMP before either, lol.

Oh my . . . I didn’t even notice that part when I made up that acronym on the fly. Well, it’s definitely very apt, lol

No, no. You’re definitely on the right track. There’s a video on it.

Not something generally approved of or highly regarded but in this case I couldn’t resist.

So we were all wrong. :joy:

I don’t think it’s much of an issue these forums, really. :slight_smile:

If anything, the POLL threads are basically a LAMP free-for-all. :laughing:

Indeed, that’s what you are… Not your kin’s fault.

Not so bad, really; but being a shipment…

Yeah, it’s probably best not to look, but Urban Dictionary is the only real way to figure some of the slang you see on the internet these days.

I thought legs and mouth person definitely had it…

LAMP also used to be a common web server stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP.
