Let’s Speak English #15!

I’m convinced there’s a Japanese company that prints nothing but vague sports-looking shirts in English. It’s awesome.

My favorite Engrish shirt is still one that had a picture of an ionic column and said “I have great conductor”

"NUMBERS plus PLACE NAME" are definitely the most confusing shirts, especially when they are misspelled. It’s like the factory that churns them out is just going by whatever designs emerge from the fax machine, and sometimes the fax is illegible but they just run with it.

I know Lithgow is into this stuff for real (I believe he also writes children’s books) but he’s played so many psychos this is hilarious.

"I never know how she learns things. I made her a sandwich, and she told me: ‘I don’t want to eat.’ I said, ‘Well, you need to eat.’ Then she said: ‘If I eat, can I can play later?’ And I thought: ‘Did she just bargain with me? How did she learn how to bargain?”"

RIP Saturday Morning Cartoons (1966-2014)

It was announced last week that after almost 50 years, a block of animation will no longer appear somewhere on broadcast television Saturday Morning. The format itself had been in decline since the mid-90s when the larger networks stopped running new series, but had hung in for almost two decades finally expiring from the CW in late September. After delighting over 2 generations of children and adults, the format will be mourned, but in this age of near-ubiquitous home video, will not be forgotten.

Above are some excellent examples of the types of advertisements kids would pour over to plan their Saturdays around in the fall.

For more information:

Saturday Morning Cartoon Schedules - TV Party

It’s been said on Twitter that cartoons are better than ever and kids can watch them whenever they want, but a part of me is still sad that a cultural reference has died.

Fans are taking ‘Where’s Gamora?’ into their own hands

As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new

This missing-Gamora bullshit makes me SO. MAD. “It’s a boy’s shirt so it can’t have a girl on it” ah yes, boys cannot wear something with a ladybody on it, that would turn them gay or something.

Hey, I wonder what the girls’ shirt for Guardians of the Galaxy looks like? OH WAIT HAHA THERE ISN’T ONE. In fact, a number of their licenses — Lego, Captain America, Star Wars, Ninjago, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, X-Men — only appear on boys’ clothing.

I do not envy the challenge for parents who want their kids to have gender-neutral clothing.

now that you mention it, I bought my son Avengers underwear and I think it’s got every single hero on it except Black Widow. Shit.

  • Question: I've tried dating outside my own culture and it's almost always full of these weird pitfalls that make things harder and less enjoyable for both of us. I need a certain baseline of shared unquestioned assumptions about reality if we're going to raise children together. - Anonymous
  • Answer:


    Hey you racist creep, I promise you, it’s not that bridging cultures is impossible, it’s that someone who says shit like “certain baseline of shared unquestioned assumptions” is a fucking huge asshole who needs to control their partners.

    yeah I married someone from “outside my culture” who wasn’t white and guess what: if you and your partner care about each other you can talk about how to raise the kids. But I didn’t enter the relationship concerned with “unquestioned assumptions” because who even does that

    ADULT LIFE PROTIP: question all assumptions

THE ROCK has a teenage (preteen?) daughter, so I bet his opinion has been reached after hours of non-consensual research
