Finally we know where this fond addiction to eerie spaceships materializing out of thin air stems from:
What happened next they could not ignore. With a noise like a hundred thousand people saying "wop'', a steely white spaceship suddenly seemed to create itself out of nothing in the air directly above the cricket pitch and hung there with infinite menace and a slight hum.
--Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe and Everything, Chapter 4.
Now more than one initiative had been started to actually collect and mix these 100.000 WOPs - it seems without success.
- The Great WOP Project. Once a substantial number of 'wop's have been collected, the great mixing will begin...
- 100000 WOPs: What is the sound of a Kricket Warship? So I'm asking everyone to record themselves saying "wop". Put include a few seconds of silence before and after.
- Welcome to yet another WOP project. This is not the first site with that purpose, but the difference is, that this site is automatic.
- The Torch Is Passed... That's right, the Great Wop Project has once again been passed on to new management. Why, you may ask? Well, it was a combination of my eternal laziness and lack of motivation.
Do we need a new attempt? Do we need a Facebook page?
