Different view of HBP

I've been reading some excellent reviews of HBP from a non-Potter reader.

"And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure." I mean, really, is he auditioning for Cats or something? Why not just add "of doom" to every third noun while you're at it?

This isn't supposed to happen, people. I'm seventeen. I should heartily dislike, nay, despise anything younger, cuter, louder or more demanding than myself, and this most definitely includes babies. *bangs head against wall* Hell, it even includes kittens. (to be fair, I dislike grown up cats as well.)

Because you can never have too many HP metaquotes!

Okay, you can, but I'll stuff them all in one post to be merciful.

First one stays uncut, because it's not only non-spoiler, it's a warning against them. From pretzelcoatl (actual post/replies may still contain spoilers):

People who haven't read Harry Potter 6 yet (i.e., most of my friends): Geez, this sucks. We're going to carefully avoid being spoiled.
Internet Assholes: LOL SPOILAR!!!
Rest of Friends: Geez, I'm just going to keep off the Internet. I have a less of a chance of being spoiled h--
Time Magazine: LOL SPOILAR!!!
Rest of Friends: ARRRRGGGH RAGE!!!

ayellowbirds: I think a "huzzah" is appropriate here. So, huzzah! What the heck does that mean, anyway? I know the origins of "zounds" (and that the majority mispronounce it), but as for the rallying cry of Rennies, i'm stumped.

peaseblossom03: I believe it roughly translates to "I want to sound too much like a rennie to use any more appropriate word to express my joy."

cygna_hime commenting in this Thread on slash in ancient classic works - which incorporates caveman fanficers, which must be read.

God, I love classicism. It's like fanfiction, only reputable. But still with all the wild ass sex. Of all varieties. So, if I say, "I'm carrying on a two-thousand-year tradition!" or, "I'm studying classical literature!" what it really means is, "I'm reading slashfic about the boys in my icon!"

Check the cap....

Welcome, class. Today's lesson: The Effects of Shaking the Pepto Bismol Bottle While the Cap Is Loose. Also covered in this session: the paintings of Jackson Pollock. Oy. (In the bedroom, no less. The place looks like Strawberry Shortcake was shooting a porn flick or something.)

In a locked post by jezeroth regarding the movie Agent Cody Banks 2:

"I thought it was a Disney low budget made for TV movie. Hell, it was worse then those wretched LIFETIME made for TV movies. "A movie about the portrayal of a woman on the grip of despair fighting desperately for her child/love/mother/brain/daisy against all odds." You know, one of THOSE."

Over with our feminist friends, some talk about the presence of Jesus around us:

"Thanks for discrediting all of the anti-sexist men in the world in addition to spouting your misogynistic bullcrap. Jesus christ in a pickle jar." -- odd_duck_out

"I agree, but why is Jesus in a pickle jar???" -- daniels_pengies

"What's wrong with pickle jars?" -- odd_duck_out

"Nothing at all, but I'd freak out if Jesus was in MY pickle jar...For that matter, I'd freak out if any major religous figure was in my pickle jar...except for Buddah, that would just be really cool." -- daniels_pengies

"I see it as a more incorporeal thing. Jesus is in all the pickle jars." -- odd_duck_out

"Hmm I never really thought of it that way...is he in all cookie jars too???" -- daniels_pengies

ash_grey_sky reflects on the whole Rove politiwank

In which the White House Press Corps grows a pair:
White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan: Dum de dum, the press corps never asks tough questions, just another press gaggle for me! Oh, hey guys!
Press Corps: Hey Scott! How they hangin'?
Scott McClellan: One lower than the other! HAHA!
Press Corps: HAHA!
Scott McClellan: So what can I do for you?
Press Corps: Oh, nothing much. Just hold these bright red targets over your chest and on your genitals, please.
Scott McClellan: Sure, no problem!
Scott McClellan: ...
Scott McClellan: Wait, what?
John Roberts: Lock and load, boys!
Helen Thomas: Dibs on the liver.

Vacation of the damned...

sundancekid describes a conversation with her family.

Locked post, quoted with permission...

Driving through the middle of nowhere, just past the state line from Missouri into Illinois
Mom: Why is there no one around?
Brother: Um, because we're in the middle of nowhere?
Mom: Maybe the Rapture happened!
Dad: Look, there's a car. If the Rapture happened, who's driving it?
Me: Sinners.
