Jun-10-06  independentthinker: This match ended after one move, as the opponent didn't turn up - he was away with Gormally's girl hehe
Jun-10-06  cotdt: hehehe... should it be 1-0 then?
Jun-10-06  independentthinker: Gormally wrote 1-0 on his pad, but was later intimidated into accepting a draw. I think the fued with the Armenian mafia goes back a long way...
Sep-05-06  hidude: omg!! HAHA
Oct-25-06  rsl: 1. a3!! is inspiring.
Jul-26-08  FizzyY: a3. . .wow black was quite lucky.
Dec-06-08  WhiteRook48: Why on earth is this game in here?
Jan-14-09  WhiteRook48: actually 1. a3!! wins in 77 moves. Anderssen played that and won.
Jul-10-09  Dredge Rivers: Gormally's opening seems to lack punch! :)
Aug-07-15  offramp: The Europeans choose HA HA. Americans prefer the slightly more sinister HE HE. Or is it a case of auto-correction?
Aug-07-15  zanzibar: <offramp> not sure if I entirely agree with those sentiments.

Nuances abound... in fact, to such an extent that documentation efforts have been made:

And, like any phraseology of merit, worldwide dissemination is inevitable:
