Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I was surprised to see you missed “Talk Like a Pirate Day” this week. It was fun!
You mean like U.S. Presidents would talk if they were pirates?
Yes, if the presidential pirates also spoke in Pig Latin. Welcome to “Presidential Pirate Pig Latin Day.”
I’m going to need to see how this works, Blog Guy.
Look, what’s the most famous presidential quote of the last 200 years?
That’s easy. President George W. Bush. “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.”
Blog Guy, you know that odd city in Siberia that you call Wackytown? I’d like to visit it on one of your organized tours, but I’m wondering how many people there speak English?
You’re talking about Krasnoyarsk. I do know they do have English Language classes at a high security prison camp.
Most of us have favorite words, and it is a very personal choice. We enjoy the images they evoke and the sound that they make.
Check it out. A new edition of the Bible, available tomorrow, is replacing words such as “booty” and “holocaust” to “better reflect modern understanding.”
I am not making this up.
“Holocaust” is being changed to “burnt offerings,” so that readers who are easily confused won’t think the Bible is talking about the 1940s Holocaust.
