Top 20 Rejected Names for This Blog Making a Pun on the Word ‘Seoul’

seoul

By Mr. Motgol

Oh, Seoul, you tentacled leviathan! Your tendrils reach into every valley, islet, and far-flung corner of this nation. Nothing goes down in Korea without your stamp; every other prick in the country shrivels with shame. No one comes close to sizing up.

Where would we be without you?

When titling this blog, it was so tempting to pay tribute to your magnificence by turning a nifty pun from your glorious name! After all, you sound like so many words and syllables in English, that the temptation proved ALMOST too great. I mean, how hilarious and clever would it be???

My collaborators and I met to discuss the matter. We squabbled heatedly, with much jostling and even fisticuffs! In the end, such a tribute was denied. This was not due to lack of effort on my part. I, Mr. Motgol (always your humble servant), constructed a voluminous list of Seoul-related names, but alas, my cohorts (being utter rubes and Philistines) rejected them all.

But droop thine divine visage not! They live on in written form! Please allow me to happily present them right here and now for your (and everyone else’s) perusal:
