Less frivolous than frustrating Feb 2

I just thought this little bit of KudoZ magic today deserved a wider audience:

Norwegian term or phrase: Skjæringstidspunktet etter el §60

Lazy/useless bugger: What is "el"?

Chris S: Ekteskapsloven. I timed myself on Google. 13 seconds.

Chris S: Marriage Act. Another 4 seconds. I’m so good at this I should do it professionally.

That's not what a translator does, you're all making it sound weird. Sickos!😝😂😝😂😝😂

A translator simply pimps out their services, providing LAP (language-assisted performance) dances, stripping source-text-naked on the sturdy pole of education, experience, SDL (sleep deprivation lifestyle) and (for some around here, clearly) snorting Cocaine off "best-rate" $1 bills (they won't admit it, though), while at the same time conducting after-hours special XBench services.😝😂😝😂😝😂

As for age-unwit:

Pro: don't take it so hard, someone that age would possibly not understand hundreds, if not thousands, of serious jobs, e.g. AutoCAD technician, 3D Modeler, Mechatronics Designer, where the processes and benefits of these are much harder to explain than those of a translator. Even my humble self doesn't understand what "pulling cables on site in Sweden, the USA and elsewhere" means? Is that like Jumper Cables To Nipples?😝😂😝😂😝😂

-"Sir, Sir, good morning Sir, I'm here for the JCTN job. Beg your pardon, Sir? Me? Absolutely, Sir, I'm more than qualified, I've always been a team player, an are-y'all(a)-xcited-people kind of guy"😝😂😝😂😝😂

Anti: take it easy people, you have to accept the difference, like when you became adults and accepted that you can no longer fit your body under a piece of household furniture that you used to do as a kid.

Some now won't even fit in their last Christmas-bought pants anyway!😝😂😝😂😝😂

Disclaimer: any unauthorized re-use, reproduction and/or distribution of the above in whatever form and by whatever medium (including your water-cooler-gossip, pillow-talk, and other such nonsense) for whole or part for personal or otherwise non-commercial/commercial use, it will be your nipple(s) on the cable(s)......then......I will sue ☞ (2021©)😝😂😝😂😝😂

Oh dear. You see, it's catching. And "age-unwit"? I'm dreadfully sorry, but you've lost me there. No, no, you haven't just lost me there. You've lost us there. An

Does this strange intro mean no wit due to age? And what is this obsession with nipples and cables? Do you refer to wire-pulling over lingerie catalogues? Mm. Enjoy ...

Do NOT blame me for your own shortcoming. It's all in there, very clear, for the witty person to grasp!

The one that tripped you is "are-y'all(a)-xcited-people kind of guy", right?

Here is a breakdown more suited for your school year 😝😂😝😂😝😂 (prepared at the same day of the joke, in anticipation of this friendly inquisition of yours):

-----
(((are-y'all(a))2-(x)4cited-people)1 kind of guy)3

1. Are you all excited people.

-----
(((are-y'all(a))2-(x)4cited-people)1 kind of guy)3

1. Are you all excited people. Cheerleading other team members, as a team-player trait.
2. Areola. For the jumpered nipples.
3. Areola-excited-people kind of guy. The kind of guy that belongs to the group of people with an areola fetish.
4. Xcited. Nipples, areolas, sexual context.

I like to, and can, make complex jokes with several folds! That's how good I am!
-----

I must say, only you can stop the train of fun derailing it into BLUE town.


On a different note: I can still see your inquisition post is still intact. What? No edits for Sweet Sadek? 😝😂😝😂😝😂

Oh, look, 2 members of your full-time support group have just "stamped" their likes already! Good for you, and for them, I guess! Whatever floats your boats and sinks your shorts, people! 😝😂😝😂😝😂

Right. I was just about to say the very same thing, only you beat me to it. It's so annoying when that train of fun derails it into blue town, isn't it? I hate that kind of thing.

@Sadek: Feb 7

Whenever some people (adult people) here write something, that is considered to be as adult content (and is read by adult people), you go mad. So, would you please tell us, what your problem is?

Just a song Feb 7

Hi people.

Just wanted to share this song I like very much translated in English, the original is sang in Spanish by Manu Chao.
The name of the song is "Calle"

The translation is not perfect but it is acceptable.

https://youtu.be/ayq9jzUck78


Have a good morning/day evening depending on where you are -:)

Mervyn's full-time support group Feb 8

Now that the cat is out of the bag, we might as well put a name to this fan-tastic entity.

My 2 proposals:

The Mervynettes or The Hendersonians.

The first one sounds sexist – which may appeal to a certain kind of dinosaurs – but we'd use it ironically, and it has a definite Motown, groovy ring to it.

The second one is to highlight the sort of erudite, cultured, cosmopolitan bunch that we represent.
