I’m glad you asked. These. These are 29Q…
Basically, 29Q – which I like to read like NiKu-Q – sounds similar to the Japanese word 肉球 (nikukyuu) which means paw pads or toe beans or whatever cutesy little word that was invented to call them. I find it amusing that the Japanese kanji characters that make up the word can be literally translated to “meatball“.
The name is stylized to 29Q as the numbers 2 and 9 can be pronounced as ni and ku respectively. The “Q” also came from another 9. However, 299 compared to 29Q looks rather plain, repetitive, and boring – so 29Q, it was.
But that’s not all! I don’t really have a name, but my l̷̛̼̝͝i̶͙͑ǹ̸͉ẹ̶̜̋͘ą̸͘ŕ̶̝̲̏ ̵̺͚͝ṯ̸̈̕ȋ̶̙͇̈́m̸̦͒̚e̷̥̍̚ḽ̷̓̏ï̸͙̝ṅ̷͕̒ẹ̵͗ ̸̧̲̒̓d̴̰̀ī̵̪̤͌v̷̧̗͊ẽ̸͕̹r̴̺̚g̷͚͋e̶̫͝ͅn̸͌͜c̸̼̜͑̂ẹ̸̗̀ ̶̹̪̉͠ḏ̴̣̑́è̷̤s̷̮̝͘i̶̬̥̐̇g̶͉͕͗n̸͇̗̏ạ̵̄ţ̴̀o̷̗̓͊ṛ̷̊ is actually N1N299 – this is encoded in base-32 and is 773,556,538 in decimal notation. I stylized this “name” of mine to nin29Q and this so I could take the puns to another level!
Nin and 29Q, when put together, become a portmanteau of ニンニク (ninniku – which means “garlic”, by the way) and the aforementioned toe beans. Doesn’t a garlic clove look like a toe bean, too?
Man, I love puns so much! Human language is such a joy because of puns!
