One of the reasons (there were literally thousands), that Superblog!! changed its URL is that nobody understood what "lamadjuret" meant. What is "lamadjuret"?!?, they would ask, tears in their eyes. And we refused to answer. But now that Bad Old Superblog!! is dead the conundrum can be resolved, the mystery revealed, the secret told, everything finally made clear as a pond of water on a sunny day:
"Lamadjuret" is Swedish for "the llama", or possibly "the lame animal", or maybe even (but probably not) "the lama-animal". Because, while Swedish is an expressive language, it also has relatively few synonyms. And the reason we (well, I) chose that name is because it was, quite literally, the first thing that popped into my head.
I had no idea then that the name is used by some kind of field hockey team, or whatever they are. Nor did I know that this team apparently sucks:
Det är bara att erkänna att Lamadjuret är sämst i serien. De hade inget spel alls, men otroligt tur. I alla fall deras målvakt som nästan inte ens visste vad han gjorde, men han fick bollarna på sig ändå.
Roughly translated into pidgin English:
It's just to admit that the Lame Animal is crappiest in the series. They had no game at all, but incredibly luck. In every case, their goalpostmankeeper, who nearly not did know what he was doing, but his balls were juicy.
Huh?! That doesn't make much sense, but it sure seems pretty bad. Is that a name we want Superblog!! to be assocated with? I don't think so.
Thus the URL change.
