What Now, Pussycat?

[ #3074 ]
What Now, Pussycat? is an Australian journal that looks amusing. Sample extract:

Sometimes I feel like my butt will become Germany, circa 1938. Hitler's at the helm and he's making plans for expansion. It would start out innocently enough, a few troops in the Rhineland, the jeans getting a bit snug. But next thing he's annexing Austria, invading Poland, seams are bursting and chairs are breaking. Suddenly there's the map of Europe with swastikas peppered all over the place and I have nothing to wear but a mumu.

Also see Masturbation Schedule. Snicker.

Notice the way Americanisms encroach upon Australian English: "butt" is not standard Down Under slang. This is why the People's Linguistic Front of Australia (Rule One: No Poofters!) recently burnt George Bush in elegy.

  • Heck, anyone who loves American English should burn him in effigy ... it's better than burning the flag!
  • > recently burnt George Bush in elegy.

    We should all have a favorite elegy (n. song or poem expressing sorrow or lamentation) over the loss of liberties and the death of compassion since Dubya was annointed president. Well, unless you count compassionate conservatism.

    But really gnat, for shame. You should know the difference between past and past-imperfect tenses, by now:

    They burned an effigy
    An effigy was burnt

    Tsk. Is there still room in that Auckland Grammar? :-)




    • Cool! Subconsciously I knew the difference (when I reread what I wrote, I can see it's wrong) but I'd never thought of it. Now I can see it. Thanks!

      If there's room at Akl. Grammar, William will go. He can proofread his old man's editing :-)
