Well, none of it is in my language really... But Gronda Gronda was apparently from a British games show a long while ago, but I liked the sound of it and adopted it as a greeting.

And the zarking hoopy froods bit is from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy... It basically means: an amazingly together guy!(or guys in this case).

[Zardoz beat me! Zarking Fardwarks!]

Oh, but the 'zarking' bit comes from the H2G2 books, it comes from 'The Great Prophet Zarquon' who is a very influential religious figure.


Read the Hitchhikers Guide!
