Default Better link for Oddcouple's "Noboy knows you're a dog" thread

That link I posted seems to be dead. Here's another link to the same cartoon: https://img.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_480w/WashingtonPost/Content/Blogs/comic-riffs/StandingArt/STEINERinternetdogs.jpg?uuid=Cn7v6vmREeKOhMVnMaIC-w

bansais's link went to a page that said, "Omforladels. Vi kunne ikke finne siden De leter etter." Google translates this mean: "Omforladels. We could not find the page they're looking for."

when it comes to soup, omforladels

You cannot turn into an 8-feet tall green monster of limitless strength and limited vocabulary.

WRQ9 on 2013-03-15 16:57:13
No, but you can become the analog of it.

wvwoman on 2014-03-26 20:28:17
now, montyb--have you tried really hard?

kb83 on 2014-07-15 10:15:38
I think, in montyb's case, it was the limited vocabulary that was the sticking point.

Jalapenoman on 2015-06-24 04:20:01
Just don't make him angry. You won't like him if he's angry.

So is that what the "b" in montyb stands for? Banner?

"He who lets the goat be laid on his shoulders is soon after forced to carry the cow."
Italian Proverb

Queethebean on 2013-03-22 22:36:02
And that, my friends, is why I have never allowed a goat to be laid on my shoulders.

montyb on 2013-07-15 20:12:29
Our state legislature is laying the bull on our shoulders.

abra on 2016-04-12 14:41:01
Funny, Queethebean.

SippyGurl on 2016-12-10 04:24:11
at least there was no shotgun wedding being forced to marry the cow

abra on 2017-01-20 18:31:03
If it's a Billy Goat that's been laid on your shoulders, better send for Theo Epstein. Just sayin'.

"Literature is the human activity that makes the fullest and most precise account of variousness, possibility, complexity, and difficulty. "
Lionel Trilling

ladie on 2012-02-12 17:39:31
never heard of variousness has anyone?

montyb on 2012-05-16 12:04:36
No, but literary critics are allowed to terminologize.

jeanering on 2013-04-05 01:24:35
it seems variety would have sufficed. He is intoxicated with the exuberance of his own verbosity.

wvwoman on 2013-10-09 23:23:10
(never heard of montyb's word, either!) nicely stated, jaenering!

abra on 2015-02-05 11:03:09
Wonderful comment jeanering. So many of them are.

skeeter on 2015-04-25 10:29:01
I was perplexified by this as well.

kb83 on 2015-07-08 09:20:16
And good literature also partakes of abbreviatedness.

abra on 2016-08-16 09:50:37
LOL, good comments.

"Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion? "
Friedrich Nietzsche



maradnu on 2009-06-06 21:14:25
No.

hopetheturtle on 2011-09-30 10:03:54
Wisdom is not an inspiration but a virtue that one is either born with or eventually learns over time. Of course some people never become owls.

kb77 on 2011-10-20 15:54:03
substitute 'wisdom' with 'greed'. now THAT makes some sense!!

wvwoman on 2012-07-16 20:41:07
how does the raven eating make him greedy?

bansaisequoia on 2012-07-31 04:09:01
"Wisdom is the domain of the wis."--Dale Bozzio

WRQ9 on 2013-11-17 10:44:38
Or, da wiz. This might show insight if the "raven" would in most circumstances never turn to carrion again. "Nevermore".

LLapp on 2015-05-25 09:49:37
This quote sounds like a close-up view of Nietzsche's mind going mad -- suspecting even his own wisdom of being some horrid nightmare.

Mobo on 2015-10-12 02:41:01
In other words, we wise up after we nearly destroy ourselves. Is that why the league of nations and the UN were created? And look how they both succeeded, not!

JJ20paws on 2016-04-10 12:23:48

Barnabas on 2016-09-16 12:01:37
Doth quote the raven... "Carrion my wayward son." I think he said that in Kansas somewhere.

universalmom on 2016-10-02 14:16:20
Hahaha, second time you've cracked me up tonight Barnabas!

darkyr on 2017-02-22 06:04:39
Yes, of course, it must be, because it all makes sense now.

Persephone59 on 2017-04-15 13:23:50
This quote is a new low. But the comments are funny, especially Barnabas'.

Persephone59 on 2017-05-27 07:40:54
Well that was a pretty dark quote, even for Nietzsche.
