I felt the pull of a summoning, and was dragged to the depths of Hell again.
"What now?" I say as I appear in the mystic sigil.
"Hi, Bob," the demon says. "Our printer has stopped working."
"Release a soul."
"You want my I.T support? You summon me from my sofa? You pay."

I'm not sure what you can do with this info, but I personnaly find it fascinating.
Anyway, after reading multiple Wikipedia articles, I finally stole the explications and examples from this excellent reddit thread about this meme you'll now be able to understand (if you were'nt already), and pedantically invalidate:
An abjad (like arabic or hebrew) can be pure or vowelled. In a pure abjad, only the consonants are marked and the reader infers the vowels:
A vowelled abjad looks a lot like an alphasyllabary, except there is a diacritic marking the absence of vowel:
Finally an abugida (like Ethiopian Geʽez) is a syllabary in which you add diacritics to change (or remove) the vowels. You can also think of it as an abjad with default vowels for each consonant:
I just learned the existence (and difference between) alphasyllabaries, abjad and abugida, and now I want to use this but I have no idea how, so I'll share it here.
If you're reading this you know how alphabets work:
You probably know how syllabaries work too (each sign being a syllable, like japanese kana):
Now, an alphasyllabary is basically an alphabet where vowels are diacritics, ie small modifications (accents, dots, …) to the consonants:
Remember that one time Leonard Cohen started a rap feud with Kanye West and then died, leaving Kanye no chance to respond?
This is the greatest thing I've ever seen. "I am the Kanye West of Kanye West" ahahaha.
Well, looks like the scenario of the next Yakuza game leaked. :]
