Mehst Week Ever – March 15, 2009

Between perparing for midterms and getting home, I have spent surprisingly little time on the internet. I offer these pathetic links and apologies. Also, stay tuned for an upcoming post on my first time attending an opera.
1. Paraplegic man gets bitten by brown recluse. Then, is able to walk again.
2. John Waters wants to turn “Pink Flamingos” into an opera.
3. The Nietzsche Family Circus.
A hilarious mashup of Family Circus cartoons and quotations from the famed philosopher.

A little poison now and then: that makes for agreeable dreams.

I’m pretty sure that this is a slang website for people that are learning English or are otherwise not native speakers. Some highlights are the interactive charts with slang for body parts. Also the translations of American movies:
Patches O’Houlihan: You all are about as useful as a lollipop that tastes like feces.
Ben Stone (to answering machine): Hey, Doctor Howard, this is Ben Stone calling you. Guess what the fuck (used for emphasis) is happening? Alison is going into labor and you are not fucking (used for emphasis) here. Do you know where you are? You’re at a stupid bar mitzvah* in San Francisco, you contemptible person (literally: feces), and do you know what I’m going to have to do now? I’m going have to kill you. I’m going to shoot you with a gun. You’re dead, like well-known rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, both of whom were shot to death. You contemptible man (literally: feces), I hope you fucking (used for emphasis) die or drop the chair and kill the boy who is having his bar mitzvah*. I hope your plane crashes. Goodbye, hated person!
*The bar mitzvah is a Jewish ceremony in which 13-year-old boys enter the age of religious adulthood. As part of the celebration, the boy is raised up above the crowd on a chair.
