Links to Love
The indefatigable Nikki Stafford yesterday shouted out Lost Valentines made by
Lee Bretschneider in her unending battle to direct readers’ attentions to every quality parody of, tribute to, or riff on the show in existence.
At some point, students of French will learn that the word for seal in that language
is phoque — which is pronounced roughly as you think — and they will laugh. I’m using that word in place of the English word it sounds most like for the sake of sensitive readers. The following links, however, are unvarnished in sound and image.
I don’t know what it is about the women in my family, but my sister, mother, and stepmother all heartily enjoy Lily Allen’s lilting rebuke “Phoque You”. Me too, actually.
What brings it to mind right now is a link from the indigestible Joan Crawford that finds legendary DJ Casey Kasem in a foulmouthed mood. I’ll caution you to not click through unless you’re prepared to hear the voice of Shaggy and Robin the Boy Wonder, the man who exhorts us to keep our feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars, kinda lose it a bit. Although he does have a point.
That link in turn recalled to me not only the aforementioned song but Matthew Gasteier’s delightfully absurd website Phoque You, Penguin. I quote the author in describing it as a blog wherein he tells cute animals what is what.
Closing out the post are the Lost bingo cards offered by Sci-Fi Wire for those of you who need yet another excuse to follow the show more closely than is medically sound.
