    I always assumed it was your lizard identity growling at the world. Disappointing to discover it's a cordial greeting.

    (Aaaaaand already thinking it's a dumb story.... Ah well)

    Loving the new end of message catchphrase. To me it now communicates both a loud Dutch hello and your inner Carnisaur! :D
