spice girls

i was looking at spice girls videos on youtube (don't shoot me that dirty look.. i know you do it from time to time as well).. and as i was listening to the lyrics of "2 become 1", a horrible horrible revelation hit me.. they were singing about having sex! (i can hear my childhood innocence just flying out of the window as i'm typing this)

seriously! have a look at the lyrics

Are you as good as I remember baby, get it on, get it on
'Cause tonight is the night when two become one

Ah, oh wow
Ah, oh wow

Be a little bit wiser baby, put it on, put it on
'Cause tonight is the night when two become one

does that just not scream "get a condom on and let's have sex"?

i don't know why i never realised it before until just then.. i can hear my childhood innocence shatter into another million pieces..

now that i realised this, i can NEVER look back at the days of my childhood and not think "o.m.g. i was singing about having sex at the age of 7. what a slut." *shudders*

there is no hope.

Score at BK!

So... we went to BK today after a grueling day of spring cleaning the house. I ordered a Tendergrill Chicken combo and ended up waiting for a full twenty minutes for my food. I waited in line for 15 minutes and finally gave up and told the girl behind the counter to bring my food to the table instead.

About a millennium after that, the girl finally came with my order. Lo and behold was I very surprised when she showed up with my Tendergrill Chicken combo, a double cheeseburger as well as 2 sundaes - one chocolate and the other caramel.

Together with a tray full of goodies, she apologised for the delay, served with a smile and explained that the extras were compensation for the delay. So yes, I was very impressed with their service and more impressed by the fact that the extra food was completely voluntary and I didn't even have to ask for it!

Three woots for Burger King!

Russell Peters

Russell Peters on beating the kids:

My dad's theory was "If I get rid of one, I'll just make another one. And I'll tell the new one what an idiot the last one was".

the english language

Can you read these right the first time?

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce.

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish furniture.

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

Let's face it - English is a crazy language There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France . Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by f illing it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick?'

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is

It's easy to understand
UP , meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP ? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report ?

We call
UP our friends.. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special ..

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP . We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP ! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP , look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP
is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP , you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP.

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP;

When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP .

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now my time is UP , so....... Time to shut UP!
