The PC is merely a succedaneum for satisfying the nympholepsy of nullifidians. The haecceity of the enchiridion of arcane and recdonite elements of the Mac gestalt appeals to the oniomaina of an eximious Gemeinschaft whose legerity and sophrosyne, whose Sprachgef?and orexis find more than fugacious fullment in its felicific experience.

What else? So today is Tuesday, which means that I
have jujitsu lessons tonight. Jujitsu is cool because
we get to throw people around and, come on, what’s
better than that? I tell you what, Chesapeake Bay crab
slathered in old bay seasoning. That or perhaps
lobster tail. Anyway, the downside to martial arts is
that people also get to throw you, I mean, me. What
I’m trying to say is that you (third person singular)
get thrown. hard. Bruises — everywhere. Also, the
uniforms are a bit wierd. Imagine something like a
violent slumber party where everyone showed up wearing
the same white pajamas and you start to get the idea.

English doesn’t borrow from other languages. English follows other languages down dark alleys, hits them over the head and goes through their pockets for loose vocabulary.

I found this on a local tattoo website. I’ve underlined the sections I find most funny:
2) Pain – How much does tattooing or piercing hurt
Everyone wants to know – does it hurt? Of course it hurts a little to get a tattoo. But most people find tattooing to be more irritating than painful – its not that bad. Some people hurt more than others, but about 90% of our clients don’t think it is such a big deal. Body piercing feels like a hard pinch. Before you can say ouch – its over. Neither tattooing nor piercing hurts afterwards. It is wrong to choose a tattoo or piercing based on how much it might hurt. What you want and where you want it are the important considerations. It only hurts for a moment but you will wear it forever. Get what you really want and get it where you really want it. If it hurts a little – be tough – you will be glad you did. Remember, everyone of us had a first time. Your artist should be firm, friendly and understanding. If the artist is making fun of you, you are in the wrong place. Likewise, the artist has a difficult and important job to do for you. Be tough and let them do their job. Don’t be a wiggler or a whiner or a wienie! Tattooing and piercing is more than just body decorating. It is important to face and conquer fear and discomfort occasionally and in this way tattooing and piercing is like an exercise that helps to prepare you to deal with the real discomforts of life. Pain can be our friend — don’t fear it. Learn to be master of it.
