Can we make a nonsense thread?

Asked by zensky (13357points) November 5th, 2011

Too much animosity – and I take responsibility for some of it. I have mood swings, I do not suffer fools gladly and my buttons are sometimes easily pushed. I won’t go into why – that was for the first couple of Zens a few years ago.

So – sorry – and let’s have some fun – the Fluther way.

Write what you want – but make it about Peace and Love.

From jabberwocky to the great writers of the 21st century – nonsense is a wonderful medium for great minds – and, Gail might agree with me, a good way to improve your language skills.

I have also read that psycho-linguists say that it improves language skills, and mental skills in general. Like puzzles, sudoku and the ilk.

So have fun. Grumpyfish say: nasty be flagged; funny be lurved.

I’ll fall back to my usual nonsense phrase: Millenium hand and shrimp.

I already feel pretty nonsensical. Today I came in to “work” on a Saturday to escape my cold, dark house. I brought Willow the Wonder Dorg in so that she could be warm for the first time this week. I’m sitting in a conference room with Willow wandering around and occasionally woofing at nothing.

And I’m charging a car battery in case the power is still off when I get home and I have to pump – that is “I will definitely have to pump” – the sump in the basement.

I’ve had enough of nonsense this week (Fluther excepted). I’m ready for rationality again. Oh, and to start tossing the contents of my refrigerator. That’ll be fun, too.

@Mariah __“You’ve got to be kidding me. I’ve been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It’s just common sense. —Goodness, I wish I’d come up with this response myself!

So I’m watching Zombi 3 yesterday. One part in there always makes me laugh so much.

A group of people are stranded in a small hotel. One girl, Rita, is affected by the virus, and is suffering. This other chick and some dude are by her side, being really worried, of course. They’re on this desolate resort with nothing but zombies around.

While somewhat tending to the sick Rita, the guy tells the other girl;

’‘I think we should go look for a doctor together.’’

In which she replies;

’‘Yes, I think I’d like to go’’. Then they fuck off on a jeep and go and get killed.

But the funny thing about her reply…it sounds so much more like…

’‘Yeah, I’d like to get the hell out of here. Fuck Rita!’’

This part just did NOT seem like they wanted to help poor Rita lol. But this is real bad acting the whole way through, which is what gives this movie most of its awesome factor.

I’m not exactly as nonsensient being, but I can’t make up nonsense myself, not on call, not off the top of my head. I can generate a lot of nonsense but it’s usually spontaneous. But I will post a few of my favorite silly Tom Lehrer songs in the spirit of nonsense and silliness.

This one may not be so peace and lovey as requested, at least not in regard to pigeons.

@lillycoyote Tom Lehrer was great. thanks for reminding me.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint – it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Sunny2 He was great, wasn’t he? And I forgot about him for a while too. My aunt is a big fan of his and I when I went to visit her a couple of years ago we listened to a lot Lehrer. It was fun to “discover” him all over again.

@lillycoyote I think I’ll do that too. I used to know some of his songs by heart. I can still hear his voice in my head.
And Elaine May and Mike Nichols’ routines. ” . . . Delseys with lanolin plus . . . and into that softness sinks the weight of the world. . ” (Delseys was toilet paper) I want to hear that again.

Most people believe that the rhetorical alchemist has a change of heart about a debutante, but they need to remember how feverishly the unseemly curse feels nagging remorse. A curse beyond a curse, the toothpick for a fetishist, and a lovely shadow are what got Desdemona into trouble. Now and then, the wobbly fetishist throws the trombone at an espadrille. Seriously, @zensky, seriously.

So I’m watching an AVGN (Angry Video Game Nerd) video, and he’s reviewing Independence Day for the PlayStation 1. Basically, he plays really bad games, gets pissed off and makes fun of them.

At the end of the review, he holds up the game case to his face and screams at it; You filthy animal!!

I could not stop laughing. I was at work thinking about it, and started trying not to laugh. Man, that was funny lmao. I’m laughing about it right now. :D
