stuff god people like

You know, to put the proverbial cherry on the metaphorical sundae of sketchy gun show week here at The Anti DC, I find it only fitting that I drop some red state crazy philosophy on you all. Behold, a clearly irrefutable theory about how so-called "science" is pure, ungodly bunk.



Thank you, "God Tube" for enlightening me. I'm sure Adam and Eve had a raucously good time barebacking dinosaurs. It'd be a lot more funny, if the God-Tube people weren't flippin' serious. Yikes.

And a special thanks to my good friend, Mr. (or Dr.?) Socrates Johnson, of the newly christened and truly eloquent India Poop Blog, to which I'm hoping this plug will goad him into updating more. This kid's got a keen eye for both the awesome and the retardulous. He also likes taking pictures with his shirt off and posting them on Facebook, but that's neither here nor there...

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to jet-set. I'm going-going, back-back, to Cali-Cali Boston (um, that was brought to you be The Notorious Retardulous A.D.C.). And of course, I'm leaving when the weather is extremely tight. *sigh* Anyway, e-friends, have fun in the District, and I'll e-see you Monday. Ciao!

So sad. If only their entire argument wasn't based on believing that their particular mythology of creation is absolutely and fundamentally true in its umpteenth translation into a version of English that no one speaks any more, then it wouldn't seem QUITE so absurd. "God Tube". *snicker*

That is genius.

My favourite but is where he starts being all 'Hello, basics?'. It's a good job we've got that there book to tell us how it is instead of using any actual evidence. Having watched that I love Jesus even more.

Yeah, this is the brand of Christianity that give legit Christianity a bad name. Any extreme wing of any religion just breeds retardation. What gets me most about this particular debacle, however, is the fact that this is being taught to actual children who have no chance of knowing any better.

oh man biblical dinos are so much more friendly than those vicious hollywood heathen titans. if only spielberg had paid closer attention to the old testament then maybe those jurassic park films would've actually been successful...ohhh wait...

Messrissa, you like to use the words "retarded" and retardulous a lot. Because of your self-absorbed and negative karma, I foresee you or a friend or relative of yours giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome or autism!

The Vinyl District said...

Hey jodee...it's often an ungodly adjective as well as a noun.

LivitLuvit said...

Funny. I just thought, "omg 'retardulous' is my new favorite word, and I'm totally stealing it." Keep it up, Marissa :-)

Seriously, what a myth this whole so-called Jurassic age is...psshah.

jodee--

Messrissa? Can you make that Hot Messrissa at least? You're right, I do like the words retarded and retardulous a lot! I see you must be a regular reader, although I sense we disagree about some stuff, seeing as you just wished ill-will upon not only me, for which I suppose on account of the amount I do post about myself on this blog might be enough for someone to form a negative opinion on me, but also my friends and family, whom you do not know at all. Just a thought -- you may want to look up the definition of the word karma before you start throwing it around, as I think the OPTIONAL READING musings about my observations on life here, pale in comparison to you trying to voodoo me and my loved ones. But, that's just my (awesome) opinion...

But enough about "logic" and what not, thanks for stopping by! Come again?

tvd--

Double true!

Steal away! I have no copywrite. And thanks, I think I will keep it up. In fact, I think it's high time I up the retardulous quotient on this fine piece of blog.

The SMUGNESS on the voiceover of that clip is UNBEARABLE... nice find. Ugh. I almost couldn't watch it to its 15-second completion.

I adore your blog and have been lurking for some time now. Not to get anyone's panties up in a wad... (okay maybe) but I have to say... the retard- variations are borderline... I mean... saying "retard*" is just as bad as any other slur against a particular group. Dontcha think?

But no ill-will to you or your family.

You're right the voice over is 100 percent ridic. And welcome to the comment-sphere, interactivity is sweet.

Thanks for the compliments, and your opinion. I understand where you're coming from and I too have a problem with people using words like "retard" in a derogatory way to describe someone with an actual mental disability. In fact, I don't (at least I don't think) often refer to people, with actual mental impairments or not, as "retards." Instead I usually keep to the adjective, which, in my mind, has veered so far away from conjuring up the image of someone with a mental disability, that the meaning is completely innocuous to me. In fact, depending on the context, it could actually mean something opposite to how it is normally intended -- kind of like how bad meant good in the late eighties.

Now, retardulous is a whole other animal. It describes something so out there, so mind-blowing, something so unbelievably ridiculous that it needed it's own word. It just felt natural to marry fabulously retarded into one union. Now in this case, while the root may indeed be "retard," it often holds the opposite meaning, and again has nothing at all to do with Down Syndrome or the like. In other words, something that is retardulous is steeped in both fabulosity and retardedness, which could be either good or bad, depending on the listener's or reader's views as well as the context (i.e. This blog is retardulous...now, I hope Down syndrome is the first thing to come to mind...)

It also helps that I'm super un-PC, as is most everyone I hang out with. More so, I am a huge proponent of the evolution of language. I mean, just look at how the word bitch has morphed, from meaning female dog to bad woman to a word used by women to empower themselves to it being used to describe other men to it being used by-many-a person in routine life, completely stripping it of its derogatory meaning. "Hey guys!" has morphed to "Hey bitches!"

That being said, however, there are a few words that even I have zero tolerance for -- the N word and the word fag come to mind quickly. Who knows, though, what will happen with those words in the future.

This is actually quite an interesting topic, actually.

Elle Gee said...

Thanks for the linguistic analysis and your unmean welcome! You're right, it IS interesting...

I buy your argument except that I don't always think you say Retardulous (okay, I snort-laughed as I typed it) as a positive thing (i.e., Soc Johnson observes both "the awesome and the retardulous".) Here, Retardulous = sucky? delusional? something not awesome? I'm sayin', maybe it retains a remnant of its original meaning instead of being the polar opposite (i.e., when *bad* = good).

When people say they got "jipped/gypped" as in ripped off... it came from an anti-gypsy (as in the Gypsy race) slur. True story, I DID get my purse hijacked by a gypsy in Rome... ahem. See what I mean? But, while it might be, dare I say, a historically apprope word, no one is thinking of those damn Gypsies when they use it.

BUT after reading your thoughts, I won't wince the next time I see you use your etymologically-justified pet word in the Retardulous ADC (which, let's be honest, will be tomorrow).

I suppose "retardulous" has more of a negative connotation than it does positive, but it really is meant to read as almost "so bad it's good." I use it to describe Moscow quite often, if that says anything.

And please, everyone, forgive my spelling and grammar in some of my above comments. I wrote them at an extreme time with no sleep or food in my system. Um, "copywrite"? Although, I kind of like that better than copyright, to be honest. My subconscious is a mysterious place.
