I was left to my own devices for most of this afternoon, and Zach suggested I recreate this Toothpaste For Dinner comic; above is the finished product. Kate just read it over my shoulder and pointed out that the apostrophe in the last line was out of place. Hmm.
Today was a boring day, apart from the fact that I noticed a small but unfortunate spelling error. It was on Stuff, a main NZ news website, for about 15 minutes this morning:
No-one else has found this even remotely amusing yet, but I still do.
So I don't have a lot to talk about. Luckily, Holly has something awesome to talk about! (If you're not convinced, the original title of her post was 'in which I'm more offensive than Ally'- nice to know I am a benchmark.)
Here's the story: Holly teaches English to small foreign children, one of whom is currently doing a project on Germany. The project involved, amongst other things, researching a famous German person and a famous German food, then making a (famous) German booklet. Holly's student selected Hitler and frankfurters - both of which are completely valid (and rather obvious) choices - then decided to illustrate each page of his booklet with a happy frankfurter, in the general theme of the page. You can guess what happened, can't you?
He drew a Hitler sausage.
The resulting cartoon character ("I am S-S!*") has to be seen to be believed. Go on, go and see it.
*stands for Special Sausage
