Quote of the week – hump day hilarity

I busted out laughing when I saw this from the Pajamas Media Tattler.

I expect momentarily a press release from Real Climate decrying Linzen and Choi as poopyheads.

Here’s the full post.

  1. Here was my quote/text of the Hump-Day:
    “Hey man- you gotta be ready for this shit. I won’t always be around to slit people’s throats open for you.”
    Standing alone, obviously disturbingly hilarious. Context: I wrote this right after emailing my friend instructions on how to perform an emergency tracheotomy after her boyfriend had to go to the ER last night to remove a lodged piece of steak that he had choked on earlier.

  2. Yep, that quote works. It pretty much describes the crowd at “Real” Climate. Linzen and Choi are about to face the the poopyhead argument from Unreal Climate.

  3. David, your use of the term “Unreal Climate” just gave me a flash of Unreal Tournament. I could say more but I bettter not! haha
    It will be interesting to see what Realclimate comes up with though. Once they’re done grinding their teeth…..

  4. Wayne,
    I’m gonna go all grammarnazi on y’all:
    bust 2 informal
    verb ( past and past part. busted or bust ) [ trans. ]
    1 break, split, or burst (something) : they bust the tunnel wide open | figurative the film busts every box-office record.

    American colloquialism: “I busted out laughing.” In widespread use.☺

  5. Sir Smokey,
    I think the current American colloquialism may have evolved from “to bust a move”.
    Quaint as that may be.

  6. Wayne,
    It is a typical American tradition to drop the “r” in certain “rs” words: burst->bust, horse->hoss, arse->ass, curse->cuss.
    It doesn’t change the meaning. 🙂

  7. Laughing sulphrous gas,
    Bursted turds, exploding heads,
    From Lindzen and Choi.
    H/t Wordsword’s honeyed edge.
    ==========

  8. When mirth and satire are the norm against an opponent, it is fair to opine that the argument is won. The AGW mob are some what bitter and twisted at the moment, like cornered pit bull terriers, laughing at their unicorns will destroy them.

    Great Smokey, Will you open a grammar page for us illiteraties. The most difficult problem I encountered and bypassed well in years of teaching was….
    ‘Can I open/check an a-cunt’ when I was teaching remote adult men in mainstream banking practices and assisting face-to-face practicals in the subject. We eventually got past (passed) that apparent problem. 🙂

  10. Thanks, Anthony. Kim, congratulations on what was to be the most obscure in-joke ever posted on WUWT.

    grammarnasty trump: past tense of “burst” is “burst”. Not “bursted”.

    Verb burst (third-person singular simple present bursts, present participle bursting, simple past burst or archaically brast, past participle burst or rarely bursten)
    (intransitive) To break from internal pressure.
    I blew the balloon up too much, and it burst.
    (transitive) To cause to break from internal pressure.
    I burst the balloon when I blew it up too much.
