Smegma

Wasn't really sure where to post this...

I remember an interview in which some guy, I really don't remember who it was at this point, discussed this part of the SCUMM engine that was called SMEGMA.
He said he thought it meant something wholly less unpleasant, and only found out what it really meant after naming it that.
Anyone have any clue as to who the guy was or where the interview was?

Aric Wilmunder I think, in his Mojo interview.

The interview doesnt seem to be back up yet though.

Heh, for some reason I've got a fridge with SMEG written in big letters over it.

SMEG is not nearly the same thing. It's just a brand.

Wait, so a GUY named it that? I could understand a woman not knowing what it meant, but this hints at some personal hygeine issues.

Oh those boys at LucasArts. Aren't thet cheeky. They have an obsession with toilet humour.
First, its called SCUMM. Not too bad.
Then SMEGMA.
((smegma - n - A cheesy deposit found at the tip of the penis in unwashed men))

Also where Grant + Doug got smeg from.
Not that that was what they were getting at


I also heard scumm being called SLIME or something.

PS- The script utillity for GF was called GRIME


People who call me 'paranoid' are probably in on the plot.
