The Real Impossible Question

So, you know how, in both well-known movies and in the actual book of Alice in Wonderland/Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (movie titles and book title, respectively), the Mad Hatter asks "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" He asks that in all the possible versions of this story--but never answers it.


This has got to be some sort of code, or something. Well, maybe not. But, seriously, sure he's mad, but why would Lewis Carroll feel the need to drive us mad too, trying to figure out the answer? Someone at my school wrote that question on the "Movie Quotes Whiteboard," earning the response of an anonymous commenter armed with a green marker, saying that "Poe wrote on both." That's pretty good. I always thought it was just because of the inky feathers on both (considering the time period in which Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was written)...any other opinions?

...well, while you chew on's Words are from the category of Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"We need some duct tape so we can voodoo Abby." Duct Tape Voodoo. For when you thought your voodoo wouldn't hold up under X-TREME CIRCUMSTANCES. Or for when your voodoo just isn't manly enough.

"OH! I forgot to tell you guys! I discovered a new voice inside my head!" What did I say about not telling people about those anymore?

"Did Donald eat his trombone case?" Again? Oh, wait, no, his stomach just has really long, skinny things sticking out on either side so it looks like he ate a trombone case. It's probably the actual trombone. My bad!

"That is such a rip-off of Holly taking over the world with cheese sticks." If I had a dollar for every time I've heard that...

National Clam Chowder Day!

Happy National Clam Chowder Day to everybody!!!! ...I've never actually had clam chowder. I'm just really excited about this holiday because it's so utterly random. ;)

So, anyway. Today's Words are from the Fairly Mean category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"He only drools when he tries to think." A commendable achievement.

"It's easier to duck out of the way and it sails past and hits Brittany." True dat.

"[teacher] If this isn't the classic response for our class, I don't know what is: 'Eric, are you jealous of that belt?' 'I don't even like to read!'" Is there something wrong with that response?

Person 1: "For once we are not laughing next to you; we are laughing at you."
Person 2: "For once?" We would be laughing with you...but you're not laughing.

National Tortilla Chip Day!

Wanna hear my National Tortilla Chip Day song?

Haaaaaaaappy Tortiiiiiiiiilla Chip Daaaaaaaaay to yoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-

No need to thank me. ;)

Mmm. Delicious.

But anyway. Today's Words are from the Say What? category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"Did you say farmer gymnast?" Duh. Don't you grow lima beans while doing aerials on balance beams? Who doesn't, really?

"And she proclaimed me the official coatrack." How exciting for you.

"Poncho Man--to your rescue!" No.

"Here, let me drop a philosophy bomb." Pschow! If a tree claps one hand in the forest, is it like a fish needing a bicycle? Boom. Just blew your mind.

Hello, all! This is the it's-very-late-ish-and-I-still-have-to-do-the-dishes short intro! Random pictures to be inserted here to distract from the lacking quality of this introduction!!! :D

So, anyway. Today's Words From The Hallway are from the Rather Duh-Inspiring category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"They're the more eat you." Same dif, right?

"Seriously, if a brick is coming right at you, you probably want to duck." Or goose. But I find that penguining is definitely the most effective against flying bricks.

"In tennis there are various of the same." True dat.

"It is very informationable." Oh yeah? Your face is informationable! ...that's probably not too much of an insult, actually. NVM!

Happy Monday to all, and to all a Happy Monday! ...apparently we are being redundantly redundant. Oh, and Happy Presidents' Day, and Happy Love Your Pets Day! Especially love your pets if they share their names with presidents of past/present.

Or something. Whatevs. So, anyway, today's WFTH are from the category of Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"Don't think, 'I'll just sit back and be a slug.'" Actually be a slug! Go for your dreams! Shoot for the slime!

"And something about her dungeon and how I think it was Michelle or you has to rattle your tin cup against the bars for the first part of the plan?" Oh, yes, yes of course. Now it all makes sense. Except not at all.

"I love how the eyes go with the music." Don't we all.

"As it is not about sharks, it is also not about juvie." Sharks in juvie, however? Definitely.
