    Go pull that stick out of your ass. DO NOT EVER compare stupid people to special needs people. My son is autistic, and has a better sense of humor–and I’m assuming he is also more intelligent than you from the comments I have read.

    It takes a lot to offend me, so congratulations, pal–you just earned the “Douchebag of the Week” award.

    That is all.

  2. @ohwickedwendi

    Agreed.

    Smells bulltitties got owned.

  3. *smells like. lolwtf

  4. Tits,

    Thanks for your feedback. You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. Sometimes people disagree and that is ok. But it is always a positive thing when there is at least some common ground in a disagreement and it is wise to focus on that and build on it. So although you may think I am a self-righteous wanker and I think the same about you, at least we both agree that you are a dickhead.

  5. magicman, I deduced that Savannah is racist by her status update. In a similar way I have deduced from your username that you are probably a gay, middle-aged paedophile who uses tacky and poorly rehearsed magic tricks to get close enough to small boys to smell them, which brings you great pleasure. I could be wrong.

    Now by your logic, I am “clearly” the middle-aged magician paedophile, but I can assure you that I am over 75 years old.

  6. so i have a correction for lamebook. i submitted Savannah’s post. i am not savannah but i am the one who translated “Shamia’s” statement, not savannah. just saying.

  7. Premise of the “translation” is a bit absurd. “Ebonics” is English, plain and simple, just like we don’t call what they speak in England something different from what we speak in the US.

    Oh, and Fargis: People who come to the US are not “lazy.” The act of getting here in the first place (labyrinthine immigration system or border fence, either way) takes a lot of effort, and on top of that, imagine not knowing the language that well. Have you ever tried to become conversational in a new language as an adult (especially one as messed up as English)? It’s not easy.

    And yet… I know plenty of people who are products of the Spanish-language EARLY education system in various areas. To enlighten you a bit: all they do is teach the little children in Spanish until they understand English well enough (through ESL) to be taught in English. End result: a population of bilinguals set to contribute to society. More than you can say, perhaps?

    Ebonics is not English, sorry.

    Fo, wat, bootiful, frand, etc., are NOT words. Please point them out to me in Websters.

    What you said was so dumb I had to register just to let you know.

    1) Languages evolve.
    2) English has no central authority declaring what is and isn’t English. Words and vernacular styles evolve from popular use, slang, new words being coined, cross-pollination from other languages, etc.
    3) Ebonics is a popular name for “Black Vernacular English.”
    4) Being a prescriptivist is for pompous assholes who know fuck-all about how language works but want to lord their spelling and pronunciation over other people as if it’s some great accomplishment.

    Congratulations. You speak and spell better than an uneducated ghetto mess on a daytime talk show.

    Get murdered.

  10. @fucktron

    Your comment was so perfect I registered just to tell you so. 😀

  11. I am an english teacher. There is no reason for you to be such a rude prick. Go fuck yourself.

  12. @fucktron

    Likewise, I registered just to compliment your post.

    Four days after the fact. THE INTERNET NEEDED MY OPINION!!

    Btw, “fo, wat, bootiful, frand” are all words. They’re just phonetic spellings of dialectical pronunciations of the words “For, what, beautiful, friend.”

    Man, as a future English teacher I hope folks like Candidcamera aren’t my colleagues.

  13. @dan_fargis, i apologize to you in advance for my pronunciation and lack of capitalization on my part so you don’t attack me on my grammar skills, but i am a 21 year old woman who migrated to U.S. from Russia in 2001 with my mother. i picked up the language fairly quick, unlike my mother, and to this day, she has issues speaking English. she has not been too lazy or too ignorant to learn the language, but it is nearly impossible for her, since a lot of people are unable to understand her with such a heavy accent. therefore, i plead, stop being such a prick, and shut the hell up!!

    and

    @vaaarr, thank you so much! the process of JUST applying to come to America is a pain in the ass in itself. we came here legally, and filled out plenty of paperwork, did interviews, etc. i applaud you for standing up for people who have come here and are still unable to speak the English language. and ATTEMPTING to start a conversation with someone in different language is a hassle, and is very frustrating. therefore, THAT’S why most people from other countries stick to their primary language and really do not make an effort to learn English.

  14. @dan_fargis

    Please do not credit George W. Bush with that quote. It “seems” intelligent. He must have read it off a cue card or telepromter. If his administration wanted us to believe that he actually thought of this himself, they should have REALLY dumbed it down.

  15. @reyelee

    You do realize that George W. Bush was the first president since John Quincy Adams to hold multiple Ivy League degrees, right? The man’s not an idiot. He’s not a gifted orator, but he’s certainly not stupid either. Learn to criticize the policies, not the person.
