Pittsburghese

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I wish I could describe Singlish as well as solios described Pittsburghese:

That’s Pittsburghese for you, though – this town will stop loving football long before it embraces the hard consonant. A lot of the locals, when they speak… sentences do not emerge. What comes out is a pile of loosely related vowels, punctuated with the occasional grunt and the glimmer of realization in their eyes that they’re not getting through to you. It’s not for a lack of trying – the inhabitants of the region all seem to have evolved some sort of highly specialized section of larynx – a post-larynx, perhaps – a section that belt-sands all of the hard pointy bits of words clean off, leaving only the most basic impression of phonetic intent.

We’re All Stupid

Monday, July 14th, 2008

“But I don’t want to go among stupid people,” beggs remarked.

“Oh you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “We’re all stupid here. I’m stupid, you’re stupid.”

“How do you know I’m stupid?” said beggs.

“You must be,” said the Cat, “Or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Flickr Stats for beggs on 2008.07.13

Someone is looking at my photos of the Eiffel Tower through the Peace Wall. Just wish I knew who, but all the visits show up under ‘direct traffic’ e.g. no way to tell how they got to the photos, so no way to know who is linking to them.
