I’m at Emerald City Comicon right now! Booth #1008!
Joyce is cracking me up right now.
Silly Joyce everyone knows that you should abort after every meal. 😛
second degree weeded…..
You’d think she’d be more excited about being in the same state where Twilight took place.
In that case… lets sell it to Canada.
Hey! We don’t want it! You’d have to pay us to take it!
Are you sure Canada want it?
Golly hell we don’t want any part in it, it has already ruined our great nation .That is why we live in igloos there are still ghouls out in the cities, zombies of pop culture.We do not enter cities, too risky.Now Canada is in a state of death, disorder and much worse.We go into igloos to escape as our ancestors did before us.
Reverse this, and this is how uncomfortable most super-liberals feel in conservative cities.
(For the record: I am neither and loathe both “packs”)
That sounds just like something a liberal would say.
The fact that super conservatives out number super liberals 200 to 1 at least makes tolerating a super liberal much easier.
That’s only because super conservatives have so many mainstream-ish sources for magnifying their extremism.
Super liberals have… what? Democracy Now? Alternet? Their measured tones don’t stoke the fires of fanaticism.
Super liberals have the dark corners of Tumblr. Don’t search “social justice” unless you have a high tolerance for hypocrisy, double standards, and refusal to use a dictionary (sometimes literal. Yes, some people get so paranoid they decide to reject the friggin’ dictionary.)
They call it the “white man’s dictionary.”
I wish I was joking, but I’m not.
I think that’s mostly a geography thing. The roles are roughly reversed over here in Minnesota. And probably California. At least in the USA, you really that that the country is that overshadowed by conservatives? We’re about evenly split, and so split we are we can’t even have a working government at this point.
Quick, someone tell Amber that Ethan is with Joyce and she’s considering an abortion.
Ok, the coffee sizes thing *IS* a legitimate concern. 😉
Indeed it is. Poor Joyce is probably going to end up with a 32 oz mug or something.
Incidentally, I’d love to see Joyce after way too much caffeine.
Just do what I do. Order a “medium,” or a “large.” If the person serving you isn’t a pretentious cock-wag, then they’ll understand what you meant even if you’re not using their bullshit faux-Italian lingo. If they ARE a pretentious wag, they might look down their nose at you and inquire (with puddles of pretension forming underneath their words as it OOZES off them), “do you mean a VENTI?” In which case, my go-to response becomes “I didn’t misspeak. I want a medium coffee. This isn’t Italy, you know what I meant, just get me a damn medium coffee.”
Man, coffee snobs annoy me. Heh.
They’re actually required as part of their job to at least audibly correct you when they shout the order down the line, i.e.
“Medium nonfat chai, please”
“Grande chai latte!”
It’s a branding concern, and not the fault of the employees.
Also “This isn’t Italy” would make me think YOU were kind of jerk, since “WE’RE IN AMERICA, SPEAK ENGLISH” annoys the shit out of me. Encountering foreign language words in my everyday life does not cripple me with insecurity. Usually I enjoy it.
Just pitching in after being born in Italy and having lived there for 20+ years:
“venti” is not a size, it’s a number (20). “Grande” is a size, even though to get a large coffee we’d say “lungo”.
So, yes, it’s faux-Italian lingo.
Although I think positive of your view, you might be assuming too much in interpreting the other person’s word. You could also go for a positive explanation.
What a reversal. In a liberal city, it’s Joyce that’s dotty and Dorothyy that’s re-joyceing.
I find it amusing how Sarah is the only one who thought to bring an umbrella.
Who uses an umbrella in Seattle? Tourists I guess.
by carrying an umbrella all people will assume she doesn’t know about where she is and will leave her alone. A perfect plan for Sarah.
I moved to Seattle 4 months ago. I’ve seen it rain (as opposed to drizzle) maybe 3 times. I’m from a city with 60% more precipitation per year… and usually no snow. I was promised rain dammit!
Wow Joyce, wow.
…Joyce doesn’t drink coffee?
W-what’s “weeding it up”?
Ah t’ink it be meanin’ “smokin’ da ganja,” mon.
I think it has something to do with ‘mary-hwana’?
It turns you into a hifter or a drippie.
I’d almost swear Joyce is actively messing with Dorothy’s head…
What kind of powers do super-liberals have anyhow?
Well, SUPER liberals are vegan, so… psychic powers, I’d say.
Oh, Joyce, don’t you know that it’s conservatives who are all threatening to flee the country right now?
Of course, they don’t always seem to know where they’d GO, since all the countries you’d actually want to live in where they also speak English have actually adopted the same policies conservatives fear… but the particularly ignorant ones still sometimes say things like “I’M MOVING TO CANADA”
Asking if Pepsi is alright instead of Coke is like asking if kicking a small kitten wearing a tiny hat and bow-tie in the nuts is alright instead of a muffin.
