Ultra-Romantic Bedroom Conversation

Disclaimer:  Any resemblance to persons living or deceased is entirely coincidental.  :angel

She (appreciatively): Mmmmh.  You do realise that if anyone else tried to touch me like this, I'd shoot them.

He: We don't actually have a firearm.

She: I would go find one.

He: What sort would you go for?

She: A medieval cannon, I think.

He: (whistles 1812 overture)

She: Hey! This is not an earworm I want for a romantic interlude.

He (laughing): Yes, it is a bit inappropriate for that.

She (archly): Unless someone is looking to fire their cannon.

He (genuinely shocked and spluttering): Excuse me?

(Riotous laughter ensues)

He: Nobody would believe this conversation.  Normal people don't have conversations like this.

We bought a new game today - it looks very promising:

You have to explain concepts like emotional intimacy, emergency room and vacuum in "Neanderthal-speak" - you're only allowed to use single syllable words in your sentences and if you slip up and use multi-syllable words you get hit with an inflatable cudgel.  :lol:

In our initial run-through, just the two of us playing, we found it was more fun (and more egalitarian) to share the inflatable cudgel so that the guesser can hit the poet for accidentally using words containing more than one syllable, but ADDITIONALLY the poet can hit the guesser for really stupid guesses.

There's an optional activity where you have to do fill-in-the-blanks poetry, and you get hit or not depending on how the others like your finished poem.  The poetry cards can't be called poetry cards because poetry has three syllables, so they're called "Grok's Words of Love and Sad" cards.

Here's an example (fill with single syllable words only):


Grok love make loud sound
Grok throw ______ on to ground
Grok hit drum with ______ in hand
Grok start first ______ band.

Hours of fun.

PS:  And now, of course, we are trying to re-write Cure lyrics in Neanderthal-speak.  We made the discovery that Friday I'm In Love is already mostly Neanderthal-speak.  Here goes:

Day Five Me In Love
Please note:  Day Five is last day of work week!

Me no care if Day One blue
Day Two grey and Day Three too
Day Four me no care for you
On Day Five me in love

Day One you can hack off part
Day Two, Day Three break my heart
Day Four does not start to start
On Day Five me in love

Day Six wait
And Last Day e'er comes too late
But Day Five ne'er pause to wait

Me no care if Day One black
Day Two, Day Three heart stop whack
Day Four ne'er me look back
On Day Five me in love

That was easy, and within the rules, even if it ended up sounding like a bit of a cross between Neanderthal-speak and a drunken mathematician who enjoys reading Wordsworth.  We chose to include ne'er (and e'er) because it's become a word outright with different and more elevated connotations than the original "never" rather than being a simple contraction like don't, and it has just one spoken syllable, but if you want to quibble, just substitute not.

Brett says that the ease with which this song was translated entirely into one-syllable words probably helps to explain its great popularity with the general public.

We need to do something more complex like the lyrics to Disintegration.  I'll just start with the title:  Is when you fall to bits.  The rest is a bit more challenging and I see no hope of preserving any semblance of the metre or rhyme there.  :beaming-face

Considering the stupid things people do, it's a bit of a joke that our official species name is Homo sapiens.  I've been referring to us as Homo allegedly sapiens for yonks.

But today we needed to find a substitution list for the official name of our species, because one of my friends told the following story:

QuoteApparently they once had a boarder with a nice, gentle horse. The owner decided one day to work on desensitizing to plastic bags. For some unknown reason, she tied a plastic bag into the horse's mane. Then the wind blew...

After the horse ran through his own fence, he ran about a mile straight through the neighborhoods surrounding the barn, up a steep hill, and then jumped over the barrier fence that led to the highway. After that he turned and ran straight down the highway. It happened that two semi trucks were going along, and saw the horse. There was a narrow turn off, and one trucker went ahead and turned his truck to block the road while the other came behind the horse and cut off his escape route. Another man driving a car stopped and jumped out, caught the horse and took the plastic bag off the horse, at which point he immediately calmed down. Poor horse. He was going to run across the state, with the devil chasing him just above his neck.

Pretty amazing he didn't get killed.

I'm not sure if non-horse-people will fully appreciate the incredible stupidity of tying a plastic bag to the mane of a horse not desensitised to plastic bags... but it's about as predictable as what will happen if you insert your arm into a large crocodile's mouth...

This got us discussing the need to correct our species name all over again.  A friend suggested:

Homo ridiculus
Hubris vainicus  (...because the software where we're discussing this censors Homo because some of our illustrious species use it as a slur...and Hubris sounds like a great suggestion for our new genus classification; we're too far gone from other hominids in this direction to deserve to be called Homo anymore anyway...)

Other possibilities I'm playing with:

Homo excrementum
(or Homo stercus, look it up)
Homo insufferabilicus
Homo vacuosa
Homo odiferus

I sometimes entertain myself by answering forum questions literally.  There was a question on the Horse forum today, "Can I get penalised showjumping for going to fast?"  (my emphasis)

And I delighted in answering thusly:

If you're going to fast at a showjumping competition, it's not usually a problem because the horse is doing all the work; unless the lack of food makes you so weak you fall off your horse, in which case you get a points penalty. 😇 😜

...almost makes me want to go and do this, just to see the looks on people's faces.  Would be especially effective if you could do it in your local Bible Belt...  :evil:  :angel  :beaming-face

The music bit is hilarious and starts around 4 minutes in with a bit of a lampooning of punk, before explaining/lampooning various types of metal.  However, the lead-in comedy about Australian versus British attitudes is also good fun.

Here, me!

Sorry for being late to the party, but I'd like to add a few things:

  • Sitting on a Hill / Listening to the Woods (awesome collections, even including all the available A sides if you can get hold of the cassette version)
  • Refuse to Tolerate (get the original 'short' version, the Minus edition is horribly mixed/mastered if you ask me)
  • You do realise that when you follow this pattern, you will at some point get to a single called Unjust as Hell, and I love that
and we close our eyes to sleep
to dream a boy and girl
who dream the world is nothing but a dream


Hullo, @Matti:)  Hope you're well; lovely to hear from you!

And welcome to the party. 🥳

(1) was easy, (3) is hilarious!  :lol:  (...and is it also an oxymoron?...although that would depend on your views on ethics etc...)  Brett says it would also make a nice album title!

But (2) is giving me a cryptic crossword headache. It sounds like it should be obvious and even has TWO hints, but I'm relatively new to this huge catalogue...looks like I will have to go away and let my subconscious at this while doing something else... (this will probably cause me to slap my forehead, when the light bulb goes on...)

Brett thinks maybe (2) is an extended version of Want but it doesn't seem to click properly with the clues... (maybe I'm overthinking it - I'm looking for an original title with words or ideas about acceptance, goodwill etc...)
