  • *starts humming along with the excellent pronunciation of aliquid in aere erat ea nocte, stellae illustres erant, fernande*

  • See silent Bubis , from the 6:30 mark on the video.

    Also check out Ronni Ancona's most righteous dissertation on the word "obscurity" beginning at 2:39 on the same video.

  • *marvels* The Fang and the Bubi of Fernando Poo.

    December 23, 2008

  • Nobody has noted it yet, so can I just mention that the people of Fernando Poo are the Bubi. And their mainland neighbours in Rio Muni are the Fang. The Fang and the Bubi.

  • Power of Wordie!

    October 22, 2008

  • I'm sure that the natives of Fernando Poo are *thrilled* that this page pops up fifth on Google.

    October 22, 2008

  • And here I thought there was romance in the air, that night.

    October 22, 2008

  • I like that song so much better when there isn't a hard stop after each line.

    Edit: Now I keep singing Fernando. Gah!

    October 20, 2008

  • I haven't commented here yet, so I'd just like to say: BAHA!

    October 20, 2008

  • Anyone read Illuminatus!?

    October 20, 2008

  • For liberty, Fernando

    October 20, 2008

  • They were shining there for you and me

    October 20, 2008

  • the stars were bright, Fernando

    October 20, 2008

  • There was something in the air that night

    October 20, 2008

  • Skip, Three Dog Night is awesome. And so are these lyrics. *humming*

  • Sung to the tune of "I've Never Been to Spain."

    You've already been to Spain
    And the Cayman Islands too.
    But you've never been to heaven
    'Til you've seen Fernando Poo.

    Not Vanuatu
    Not Timbuktu
    Fernando Poo

    You can travel the world over
    Passport stamps up the wazoo.
    Though there's islands there a'plenty
    There's only one Fernando Poo.

    Not Vanuatu
    Not Timbuktu
    Fernando Poo

    (Sorry about the link. The only other choice was Three Dog Night, and I have my standards.)

    October 19, 2008

  • You've been to Sri Lanka, you've been to Peru -
    how 'bout a trip to Fernando Poo?

    From far Tipperary to Timbuktu,
    there's nowhere so fair as Fernando Poo.

    October 19, 2008

  • Fernando airpood.

  • A Fernando Pooer? Fernando Poorisian?

    October 17, 2008

  • A Fernando Poodle?

    October 17, 2008

  • Fernando Pooruvian?

    October 17, 2008

  • A Fernando Poosarian.

    October 17, 2008

  • Uhh... a... Fernando Pooper? Fernando Poopian? Fernando Poowegian?

    October 17, 2008

  • Ummm...I'm afraid all I've got is Fernando Pooper. I was hoping chained_bear, with her vast knowledge of all things excremental, could come up with something better. Or maybe Asativum?...Reesetee?

    October 17, 2008

  • I don't know, skip, what WOULD you call a native of Fernando Poo?

    October 17, 2008

  • What would you call a native of Fernando Poo?

    *Hoping everyone appreciates the straight line*

    October 17, 2008

  • Well, our work here is far from finished, then.

    October 16, 2008

  • Incidentally, this page is now the fourth or fifth Google listing for Fernando Poo.

    October 16, 2008

  • I can die complete now. If I make it to Fernando Poo first.

    October 16, 2008

  • Only skipvia. :-D

    October 15, 2008

  • *hugs the page*

    October 15, 2008

  • (Sung to the tune Peggy Sue)


    Fernando Poo
    I love you
    With a love so rare and true
    Fernando
    FERNANDO Poo-a-hoo poo hoo-a-hoo-hoo
    Otcho, Bioko, you're still Fernando Poo

    October 15, 2008

  • I want to go to Fernando Poo. And I want someone to write a song about it, too.

    October 15, 2008

  • You're right. First there's a pooping sea, then Fernando Poo. Who knows how many more are out there?! I'm gonna do it. Here, in case anyone has suggestions.

    October 15, 2008

  • Your recent foray into non-excremental pooping would be a good candidate for that list.

    October 15, 2008

  • Skipvia, have you thought about adopting a dog, maybe?

    *desperately wants to be introduced to Fernando Poo*

    Nevermind. I'm going to start calling my dogs this. I even already have a list I can put it on. Though I'm actually wondering whether there needs to be a "Not Only Not Specific, It's Also Not Excrement" list.

    October 15, 2008

  • Oh, it isn't that I doubted you, chained_bear. It's just too good to be true.

    But thank heavens skip isn't having any more children. ;->

    October 15, 2008

  • But fortunate for that child, I guess...

    October 15, 2008

  • Too bad I had a vasectomy, because I know what I'd be naming my next child.

    October 15, 2008

  • Glorious.

    October 14, 2008

  • Here, I'll go check again.... Okay. It's in one of the many entries under currents, and it most definitely says Poo. I mean, those are not some other vowels. They're clearly o's.

    Also, if you click the first Google link, above, it takes you to a real Wiki article. Oh, and while you're investigating, there's a brief article about the history of postage of Fernando Poo.

    I'm not making this up. In fact I think it's my favorite Wordie find ever. See also Fernão do Pó.

    October 14, 2008

  • I'm with reesetee.

    October 14, 2008

  • Noooo. Really?

    October 14, 2008

  • "The following observations are made by Varenius:—

    'Currents are various, and directed towards different parts of the ocean, of which some are constant, and others periodical. The most extraordinary current of the sea is that by which part of the Atlantic or African ocean moves about Guinea from Cape Verd (sic) towards the curvature or bay of Africa, which they call Fernando Poo, viz. from west to east, contrary to the general motion. And such is the force of this current, that when ships approach too near the shore, it carries them violently towards that bay, and decieves the mariners in their reckoning.'"
    Falconer's New Universal Dictionary of the Marine (1816), 113
