Ah! Buster! Gawd bless 'im! That's from the excellent 'Our Hospitality'..made in 1923 and set in the 1830s. I'm a big fan of Buster Keaton. There's another scene in the same film where he boards a Stephenson's Rocket type locomotive. The track for it has been laid over a very uneven surface making for a very bumpy ride
..after having his  large topper crammed onto his head after several bumps..

he dips into his carpetbag and swaps it for the low crowned hat we associate him with..
I say, Joe it's jolly frightening out here.
Nonsense dear boy, you should be more like me.
But look at you! You're shaking all over!
Shaking? You silly goose! I'm just doing the Watusi

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I think I remember going out with this girl back in the '80s. It's all kind of a blur, though...

I found the photo opportunity, took the picture and put it on the internet...the picture alone is cute and kinda funny, but look at the paws of the cat on top and tie it in with the Cravendale Milk commercial from awhile back. (and yes...she does use them as thumbs and NO this was not photoshopped...some color editing, but nothing more)

This is a lot like how it feels to work where I currently do:

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

A little context is of order.....

Quoted from cracked.com's ''5 Villains That Were Thinly-Veiled Version Of Real People'' paragraph on Moe Szyslak:
Unless you've been living under a pop-culture-blocking rock for the last 22 years, you know Moe. He's the owner of Moe's Tavern on The Simpsons, the lovable galoot with the gruff voice and the longest-suffering victim of a running gag since the British decided to start pronouncing the word "schedule" like "shedule." Bart Simpson would call the bar and ask to speak with a hilariously named patron, like Amanda Huggenkiss or Maya Buttreeks. Imagine getting calls like that for 22 years. You'd end up looking like a jaundiced gorilla, too.

The real Moe was ex-boxer Louis "Red" Deutsch, who owned a bar in Jersey City and wound up becoming famous for screaming at phone pranksters.But when Matt Groening created the character of Moe Szyslak, it wasn't Red's face he had in mind, it was his voice. Specifically, recordings of Red unleashing an unholy tirade of insults, profanities and creative death threats at prank callers.
Before there was such a thing as 4chan, there were Jim Davidson and John Elmo, two punks in the '70s with nothing better to do than call up local bar owners and ask for ridiculously named guests like Ben Dover and Cole Kutz. Most of the bartenders caught on and hung up; others occasionally called out the names, realized their folly, then hung up and moved on with their lives.

Not Red.


Perhaps due to 20 too many knocks to the old noggin, or perhaps due to his own refusal to believe anyone would have the gall to mess with a 6-foot-tall former heavyweight boxer, Red fell for the pranks every time. But that wasn't the interesting part. The interesting part was what happened on the occasions when Red figured out he was getting played the chump. He unleashed insults so hilarious that the pranksters ended up recording them for the entertainment of others, especially since Red had an unusually raspy voice that was amusing in its own right.

The recordings were so funny, in fact, that friends made copies and spread them throughout the country. Before you knew it, Red Deutsch went viral. Groening himself admitted he was a fan of the Tube Bar prank calls. Watch this recreation using real audio to see why (Chicar's Warning: NSFW):

Moe Szyslak's appearance and demeanour was also modelled on American Comedian Rich Hall

According to Mrs M., the following is an example of what has become to be known as 'screeeee!!!' amongst the adolescent female population. I am taken to understand that this term signifies an excess of cute. Being a gentleman I can scarce afford to debase myself with such affecting displays of emotion...

... but I'll make an excuse for this chap. Look at him!

I think 'screeee' usually has something to do with running off in terror.

But there could be dialect differences 'cross the oceans blue.

Ok I am going to post this but I must warn that this is a video is from the popular television series Breaking Bad. So if you have never watched the show but plan to in the future. Please ignore this. Really though it isn't really a spolier.
