Wonderful! Do you know the book "The Stuffed Owl"?
No, but now I do. I'll have to look for it.
On the Death of Queen Victoria:
Dust to dust and ash to ashes,
Into the tomb the great Queen dashes.
From Browning (from a great poem, actually), this rhetorical question:
Irks care the maw-crammed bird?
"Sacred and sweet is the joy that must come
From the furnace of life when you've poured off the scum.""The Crucible of Life"
by Edgar A. Guest
And who could forget "The Bridge of Sighs"
by Thomas Hood -- exhibit A for the Case Against Dactyls:
"Still, for all slips of hers,
One of Eve's family—
Wipe those poor lips of hers
Oozing so clammily."
Spurr'd by contumely,
Into her rest.—
Cross her hands humbly
As if praying dumbly,
Over her breast!"
This poem is a catastrophe,
down to the causeless apostrophe
Ever since you showed me that video, I'm alarmed at how constantly relevant it feels so everything.
IKR? That's what makes it so remarkably effective.
Indeed. Come to think of it, it might have been the first I'd ever heard of Fry and/or Laurie anyway.
Watch the video linked to on the text "Stephen Fry's voice".
Jesus God that Dana book is FUCKED UP.
It is a fucked up book and Dana is in it! Dana is in the book and she fucks things up with her tight grip!
"Dana violently fights Mark using Hapkido!" reminds me of a Dwarf Fortress combat report. You know, if Dwarf Fortress involved people's genitals getting bitten off.
I was going to say that Dangerous Dana read like the product of a six-year-old mind, kind of like Axe Cop, and that said six-year-old must have been indulged by a parent or someone who arranged to have the self-publishing done. But do six-year-olds know about plea bargains? Or oral sex? Disturbed thirteen-year-old, maybe?
