Waiting Until Marriage

I HATE slogans on t-shirts. They usually have terrible grammar & are ALWAYS full of stupid ideas.

These just take the cake.

The worst one I ever saw though was at Summerfest. It was some poorly printed Microsoft Word font and the phrase was something like "Women. Only good for getting beer and getting smacked."

And of course the dude was with the saddest looking girl in the whole park. Cause she probably was buying him beer all night and getting socked in the face for it.

Though these shirts may just top the Gaby Hate List. Riiiight next to Madonna.

What's YOUR most hated t-shirt phrase?

I would like to see today's Worthless Word of the Day make it into regular use.

millihelen n. the quantity of beauty required to launch precisely one ship. "I'm reading at least a dozen millihelens off of that one."

Stupid things metal dudes say: Part One! [Mar. 22nd, 2005|11:41 pm]
Keep Saying That!

I may make this a recurring feature of keepsayingthat, but it may depend on how many metal shows i go to.

This was spoken by the lead singer of Brand New Sin*, who opened the Motorhead show at the Rave on Sunday:

"This is the only country where we can do this every fucking night!" ("This," we assumed, was "drinking beer and going to metal shows.")

Note the following:

1) This was said while the band opened for Motorhead. Who are from England. (Saara pondered whether or not back home across the pond Motorhead are only allowed to play shows on, say, Wednesdays?)

2) Images sprung to our heads of pissed off Canadians standing on the other side of the border cursing at us: "Shhh! Listen! There it is again! Blasted Yanks are listening to metal again! Drinking beer, too, i'll bet! DAMN THEM! We don't get to do that in CANADA!"

*Saara, Chris, and i attempted to determine what would constitute a "brand new sin," as we're pretty sure most of them have been covered over the years. The Eddie Izzard standby, Poking a Badger With a Spoon, was naturally mentioned.

This was posted in anthropologist, and I thought some folks here may find it interesting.

`Netspeak' doing more good than harm to English language, experts say.

"Professional linguists say not to worry. They claim that Netspeak has become a third way - in addition to traditional speech and writing - for people to communicate with one another.

OK [Mar. 22nd, 2005|10:31 am]

I spotted a blurb on the origins of the term "ok" today on Yahoo. If you click on the link, there's also a section featuring more questions about words and wordplay that may interest you all.


I'll stick the "OK" answer behind a cut.

I believe it is time to continue a slang spectrum begun, I believe, in the hip-hop realm. We've had "ill" as a complimentary term (perhaps "bad" was the first of this spectrum?), then "sick", now I feel it is time to introduce "diseased" as the next hip new term for something really good. As in, "man did you see that band last night? Their guitar player was fuckin' diseased!"

I would like to thank the good folks at Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for introducing me to my new favorite euphemism: Jewels of Sodom.

Gentemen, I think you will find that the phrase will be best put to use next time you are caught without your trousers. "Behold--the Jewels of Sodom!"

I would like for people to use the "whacked" more often when describing things that are messed up to some degree. However the 'h' must be enunciated clearly.

However, all variations on "that's Orwellian", or "that's so, like, 1984", are proscribed. But the word "proscribed" should be used as much as possible.

Also, the acronym "ASAP", should be replaced by Aesop (or alternately, ASCAP). This will create a much more fable friendly business environment, or get the music industry too tied up with everyone elses business that they won't be able to sue people who download music.
