    During the run-up to Kerry’s confirmation as Sec. of State, speculation was that ex-Senator Scott Brown would run for the Republicans in the special election to replace him. At one point, Brown tweeted exactly that, “BQHATEVWR”. That’s what Pab is referencing.

    Of course, Brown came out with a definitive “NO” a couple days ago, so Pab is behind the news a bit.

    How does the cartoonist expect anyone outside of Massachusetts to get this?

    I want to know how Queen Victoria understood it.

    She didn’t get it. Not even a hint of a smirk or a giggle.

    Mark (#3): I’m guessing Pab is a regular reader of Daily Kos or another liberal blog, because that’s how I heard about it. It made the rounds when it happened.

    @ James Pollock (5) - I don’t think that there is anything to “get” in a silly typo, but the Queen clearly understands that it would normally ignite some media confusion. Note that she already got the popcorn to eat while she watches the ensuing circus on TV.

    Um…I heard about the ‘bqhatevwr’ thing just a couple days ago, on Twitter. Apparently that hashtag is (or was, Friday and yesterday) trending. I don’t know the timeline (when the drunk(?) tweeting happened), but when I saw this (here), my thought was to wonder how far ahead NAoQV is written/drawn, if he could put in something this current.

    @ 8 - Entering “bqhatevwr” into Wikipedia redirects immediately to Scott Brown.

    Kilby, what else could it possibly redirect to?

  11. Kamino Neko Feb 5th 2013 at 02:54 pm 11

    A ‘we do not have a page on that topic’ page.

    That it’s gotten a redirect means it’s caught on.
