Lame ways to find stuff out.

Post by TTIO on Sun 12 Apr 2009 - 5:12

Have any of you ever found out really obvious stuff in really lame ways?

For example, I found out that KFC was Kentucky Fried Chicken because it said so on Crazy Taxi Razz

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------




The Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

I finally understood the Trix slogan, "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!", after scratching my head in confusion for 16 years (The epiphany came in junior year of my high school career). I forget what exactly made me finally understand, but I felt like slamming my head into the wall for not figuring it out any sooner.

God forbid “fried” appear anywhere in the English language.

I didn't mind fried anything until there was fried EVERYTHING.

When I was still a humble, self-taught biochemist; I knew enough to know that there is no possible ethical or logical reason to deep-fry a friggin' twinkie.

I'm sure I have had similar moments, but I suppose the embarrassment factor was so high that they self-wiped themselves from my memories. sweat

this sorta thing happens to me all the time, but I rarely remember the incident for more than a day. Probably for the same reason as kisk.

lol, I meant that I didn't understand why Trix were only for kids. I felt sorry for that poor rabbit; all he wanted was some cereal.
But then I finally understood that their slogan was a play on words with Trix and tricks being interchangeable (the rabbit would always play tricks on the kids in the commercials to try and get some Trix).

I'm actually a hardcore otaku who likes maids more than having three meals in a day and I only read books related to maids. Also, I only visit maid cafes. Of course I also collect maid figurines, I play games which feature maids and it turns me on so much that I'll wear the maid uniforms and jump in joy.

These kind of things are like good jokes - you can never come up with one when you’re put on the spot.

Tell me about it. The Texas State Fair has a contest for people to come up with the best fried food of the year. Makes me wanna puke. We've got weird stuff like fried ice cream (how does that work anyway?) and fried I-don't-know-what-all. It's all gross to me.

I am now suddenly reminded of a skit by Eddie Murphy:

"My sister was a prostitute. We used to call her 'Trix'. My brother was a homosexual, we called him 'Lucky Charms'. My other brother was retarded. We called him 'Fruit Loops'."

Yeah I know it's turning tricks but for the sake of the pun I thought they took it out for art. xD What do I know I'm a messed up child.

And Kisk, that made me lol.

If you eat fish but not 'meat' then apparently you're a pectatarian or something like that (can't remember the name, cba to go ask my sister as she's downstairs Razz )

Pesco-vegitarian or something like that. And someone who doesn't have milk products is called a vegan. I tried to be a vegetarian once. Didn't work. Maybe because I didn't tell my mom I wanted to be vegetarian. I hate having to announce things to people. Then I feel BOUND to do it blah blah blah...
