"I miss dinosaurs."
"Evolution, we’ve talked about this."
"But I miss them.”
"It’s not the same."
"I know. I’m sorry."
"Can I at least make these cassowaries 50 feet tall?"
"Come on, you know that size didn’t work out so well before."
"Six feet, then? And over 100 pounds?"
"Yeah, that sounds better."
"And can I put weird prehistoric crests on their heads?"
"I don’t see why not."
"And can they slash people’s throats with their dagger claws?”
"Sure, pal, if that would make you feel better."
"I think it would. Thanks for understanding."
"You got it, evolution. Anytime."
Right now. This is where I want to be, right now.
This is pretty much my approach to all work problems. “I’ve got it covered, unless I don’t. In which case, I’ll just make it up!”
the way is long but you can make it easy on me
OMG what even happens in this show in S2?!
Happy ‘Mean Girls’ 10-year anniversary.
"Lindsay Lohan hasn’t done a good movie since Mean Girls." - everyone
Out of the sixteen classic Mean Girls lines featured here, one is spoken by Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay is not what made this movie great. Can we all just be honest that she’s not going to “make a comeback” because 1) she is a narcissistic druggie, and 2) even if she recovers, she can’t really act?
I mean, at least noted druggie douchebags #Winning and ole’ Iron Man at least have genuine acting chops, even if their Good Decision Meters are broken.
Kristen Bell and sloths on Ellen
This is both bizarre and endearing. Aww, Kristen Bell.:)
Just waiting for the royalty checks to come rolling in after Broad City ripped off my mid-twenties and changed the setting to NYC.
This is a charming roundup of mistranslations from other languages, starting off with the original poster’s Russian wife asking for a tape measure without knowing the name - did he have a roll of inches?
Some of my favorites:
"My Dutch neighbor called the merry go round a horse tornado."
"My Polish friend refers to bean bag chairs as ‘sitting beans.’"
"My Korean friend wanted to ‘give me a hand,’ instead he said ‘Do you need my finger?’ And held it up."
"My Icelandic friend called dimples ‘smile holes.’"
"My husband is from Switzerland, and speaks French. He was eating escargot one day, and went to throw the shells away. One of my dogs was begging for the buttery shells, and I over heard him tell her ‘No Bailey, no snail houses for you.’"
"I work with a woman from Laos. She was trying to find a word for ‘frostbite’ and said to me, ‘You know, cold eat you. Cold eat your body.’"
"A Swedish person I met was trying to use the phrase ‘as the crow flies’ and came up with ‘bird traffic’ instead."
"In Arabic ‘download’ and ‘put down’ share the same word. So a while back my Arabic cousin came to stay with me for a few weeks. Every time he wanted me to drop him off somewhere he would say ‘Download me here’ or ‘Download me there.’ I never corrected him. It was awesome."
