How is it that a few letters can make up a complete phrase?

LOL!

OK you bunch of Einsteins, then tell me why does the word “ENRI” means “King of the Jews” ?  According to scholars, this is exactly what it means.

I think you mean INRI. Are you going through a bad spell?

No, he was King Frog and there was four of him. ENERY was King of Hengland, and there was eight of him.

Not to mention the Holy Roman Emperor Enrich who visited Cnossos on his Cnees. There was a whole lot of him too. (not all cnoss-cneed, however)

The King of the Jews (only the Orange ones, mind) was called KIA-ORA.

There’s etymo-proctology for you!

Pearls before swine.  I shouldn’t have set my hopes up so high for you guys.  Carry on.

Still reckon it might be satire. Ticking too many of the boxes, like an example that’s too perfect.

Satire, forsooth? You guys are not taking etymo-proctology seriously enough. Look!

K*I*A-O*RA

K = King
I = Israel
A-O = Also-Otherwise
RA = Rex Aurantiorum

This is ineluctable evidence that the Maori are in fact one of the Lost Ten Tribes!

M*A*O*R*I

Manasseh*And*Other*Roaming*Israelites

But, as somebody already observed, pearls before swine. I shall say no more (for the time being).

I guess that is why Maori backwards is “I roam”.

Yeah, I’m now leaning toward “troll.” That doesn’t sound like honest crankery to me.

ENRI is an initialism - here’s the definition of an initialism.

The word America is not an initialism, so the ideas that apply to initialisms simply do not apply to the word America.

Another important concept about language that you’re ignoring is that words have no intrinsic meanings; they mean whatever we use them to mean and the majority rules. If you want to invent a secret “meaning” then go ahead, but that’s just a game you’re playing with yourself.

Wouldn’t “etymo-proctology” suggest that one searches for the origins of words in other people’s asses, rather than pulling such answers out of one’s own?

Maybe it just needs the “auto” prefix.
