Hello, Governor

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Why is it that when people do impressions of the British accent, they always use this phrase? Is there something I'm not aware of, like, this was a popular skit on Monty Python...or an old saying from back in the day? It just seems a bit odd that there would be this one seemingly universal phrase used for the impressions, for no apparent reason (that I'm aware of). Brits must hate it as much as the French must hate being called pussies.



This site is dead and has been for a long while, for multiple reasons—not the least of which is that it's of a different era (roughly 2007). You can no longer safely play around with discussing gray areas with a humorous twist. People don't read between the lines. If they want to be offended, they'll twist what you said to mean whatever they want, and you're guilty no matter what. Or, on the flip-side, instead of being too sensitive, they'll think you're somehow defending their awfully bigoted or shameful viewpoints, even if you aren't. Both extreme sides of everything are so black/white dumb that it's an impossible minefield to navigate. If anything on here doesn't age well, sorry; times have changed, and so do people, for better or worse. Get over it. (It being "everything") There is always more important shit out there going on. Out on limbs.
