WOOED THE WORD YOU’RE LOOKING FOR IS WOOED

GUESS WHOSE TAGS ARE TOTALLY GETTING REBLOGGED

Star-struck Interviewer: “You must miss the good old days.”

Steve Rogers: “I grew up in a tenement slum. Rats, lice, bedbugs, one shared bathroom per floor with a bucket of water to flush, cast iron coal-burning stove for cooking and heat. Oh, and coal deliveries - and milk deliveries, if you could get it - were by horse-drawn cart. One summer I saw a workhorse collapse in the heat, and the driver started beating it with a stick to make it get up. We threw bricks at the guy until he ran away. Me and Bucky and our friends used to steal potatoes or apples from the shops. We’d stick them in tin cans with some hot ashes, tie the cans to some twine, and then swing ‘em around as long as we could to get the ashes really hot. Then we’d eat the potato. And there were the block fights. You don’t know what a block fight was? That’s when the Irish or German kids who lived on one block and the Jewish or Russian kids who lived on the next block would all get together into one big mob of ethnic violence and beat the crap out of each other. One time I tore a post out of a fence and used it on a Dutch kid who’d called Bucky a Mick. Smacked him in the head with the nails.”

Interviewer: “LET’S TALK ABOUT THE INTERNET.”

Steve Rogers: “I love cat pictures.”

it got better

I really like this post, but I take issue with this section of the reblogged tags:  

As someone planning to work in museums, I can tell you right now that the Smithsonian probably had to fight tooth and nail to honestly and faithfully represent the diversity of the Howling Commandos. Museums of that caliber are much like libraries in terms of providing free knowledge and are committed to accuracy and proper representation of history.

Especially given the National Air and Space Museum’s history with the Enola Gay controversy (short version: NASM was forced to cancel the planned exhibit because it focused too much on the Japanese casualties of the atom bomb and not enough on the justifications for the bomb or its role in ending the war), it’s far more likely that any erasure of Jones or Morita was caused by competing interest groups and political machinations, not by the curators, exhibit designers, or the Smithsonian Institution itself. They were probably overjoyed at Steve’s righteous anger over weakened representation of Jones and Morita and I can imagine they pulled out their original designs and asked if he could publicly announce his approval for them so they could fix what politics had wrought.

So number one, Reading Rainbow was not cancelled because it was not effective. Reading Rainbow was the most used television resource in our nation’s classroom. In 2009, it was [cancelled] due to No Child Left Behind. That government policy made a choice between teaching the rudiments of reading and fostering a love of reading. So the idea that I am trying to somehow revive a failed endeavor is bullshit. That’s right. I said it. Bullshit.

dsfklsajflsjfdlk that’s the german word for kittens?

ISN’T GERMAN A CUTE LANGUAGE

DO YOU KNOW THE GERMAN WORD FOR BAT

IT’S FLEDERMAUS

FLUTTER-MOUSE

HOW IS THAT NOT JUST KAWAII AS HECK

My favorite is their word for bagpipes.

DUDELSACK

doodle sack

seriously

But then their word for skull is Totenkopf, as in Death’s Head. 

So German basically has two settings, kawaii and metal, and there is no in between. 

I love German.

Also “aufziehen” meaning raise basically translates to “pull upwards”

this is an easy excuse for me to point out that the german word for boombox is “Das Ghettoblaster”

the best pranks are the super harmless ones

like why would you pull someones pants down in public or like put them in danger or humiliate them when you can just baffle them by leaving tiny plastic camels all over their house or taping bill cosby’s face over every single face in  every picture in their house?
