Jamie Moyer Tweets Probably a Oaxacan Word

Moyer Tweet

Because he is afraid both of answers and the truth, the author has not endeavored to confirm that the word Ydhwxactxvery clearly tweeted by former major-league left-hander Jamie Moyer — actually belongs to any of the Oto-Manguean languages. It seems to, however, and that — as America’s celebrities teach us — is what’s most important.

    The Manguean branch, it seems, is extinct, so perhaps only Moyer himself could confirm the word’s meaning. It’s probably just an ancient word for “change-up.”

    Ydhwxactx is an obscure title the Mayans used. The word translates loosely to “Old Man who won’t stop throwing things”.

      Actually, the Mayan languages are in a separate, unrelated language family.

      (Yes, by a strange coincidence, I’ve recently been reading up on the indigenous languages of Mexico. Hopefully Cistulli is not stalking me.)

      Dude, I think it stands for “You don’t have whole xanax anymore ’cause of trying xfinity.”

      Jamie Moyer is just upset since he realized Comcast has a monopoly as his only local cable provider.

    I enjoy that in the title has utilizado “a” en vez de “an” in consideration of reflecting native pronunciation. Such a worldly chap, that Cistulli.

    This seems to be one of those times where Mr. Cistulli’s reach for the recondite exceeds his grasp. Mr. Moyer’s tweet is, quite apparently, an outburst of Cthulhuan possession.
