The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

And after 5 years since the last winter-ish weather, it has rained in Kuwait. But it wasn't what we exactly hoped for, some areas were flooded and several people were killed, so much for desert climate.

And you'd think the temperature will always be 50+, last night it was around 0. Not used to this kind of cold, even though it may be absurd compared to what it's like in other countries.

I reacently had an an arguement with a friend from Cambridge about this, who claimed it was 'York-Shi-er' and looked at me like I was mad when I said Yorkshur.

Best 'arguement' I've had like this is trying to convince my French flatmate last year that the name Beauchief is pronounced Bee-chief not Bow-chief. Couldn't understand how at all.

Isch, was that a blackcountry person?

I can't work out how I say shire, possibly more the sheer way but not consistently. What I find highly objectionable though is the advert in the radio for Amazon that uses a (in my opinion) ridiculous American pronunciation - Amazzz-O-n - clearly it should be Ama-snn. Can't even pronounce their own company's name right, the poor dears.

Well use all up norf int ya

Scenter, it might make more sense but that's not the point. Anyone who hasn't heard of the place before, how would you pronounce "Slough"?

Darth, I'd say "Fins - een", I assume that's massively wrong

Anyone got any non-English words / places to join the fun with?

I've always assumed Slough rhymed with "ow". As in "Ow! That hurt."

And Louisville is pronounced some weird French way which I can't phonetically represent, something like Lowell-ville.
