I feel like if Blaine’s comment had any correct form of spelling or grammar then it might actually be a valid point, but the fact that the entire thing is one sentence and he/she can’t even spell “speak” ruins any glimmer of hope he/she ever had to sound smart
Oh and also…I think that if you’re going to immediately write off anyone who has any beef with foreigners as an “ignorant redneck”, then you are being just as ignorant yourself. I’m not agreeing with them, but I thinks it’s dumb when people make assumptions like that. It’s just as bad as those idiots who think that anyone who’s against Obama is racist…
the overall point of learning the language of the land is sound…immigrants in the US who speak English get better jobs and generally have better opportunities.
BUT the statement that “everything is in Spanish” is utter bullshit. He’s just a xenophobic prick who can’t write…
Hey, when I wrote “seconded” it was the second post, but I wasn’t trying to be all “second!!” or anything…yo no soy Ben
I think I’ve worked out Blaine’s problem. He’s been frustrated by never being able to order food in Mexican restaurants. He’s been blaming the fact on the waiters’ inability to understand English, but it seems it was just his *ahem* “English” they couldn’t understand. Poor redneck has been slowly starving to death. I’d be mad too.
I totally agree that Blaine is a xenophobic fucktard, but all I’m saying is that doesn’t mean he’s a redneck. To be honest the point I’m making isn’t important at all I’ve just always noticed how people write all the “Blaine”s in the world off as rednecks when its not always true. Ok I’m done now.
so, LBMWAGAM is not a group for large black men who are good at math… it’s “For people of all races and math skill levels who aspire to be a Large Black Man Who Is Good At Math”. just a tribute group to some school’s large black math teacher. courtship fail.
#31 – great point man. however, i wonder what blaine and other people who argue that they would have the respect to learn another language would do if they moved to a foreign country. i imagine that they would just speak english louder and slower, something americans are already famed for doing abroad
How are Blaine or any of the other “Speak English!” people who keep showing up on Lamebook (which, by the way, got old the second, third or twelfth time) being hypocrites? None of them are saying “This is America–learn how to write well.” Blaine and others are concerned with conversational English, which is drastically different from correctly-written English. Just because you use bad grammar on the Internet–like 95% of the world’s population does–doesn’t mean you can’t speak English and therefore don’t have any business telling others to learn to do so.
my first thought on the flipper one was flipper the dolphin, as in, flipper’s back bitches, because shamu is out because he killed someone? but the picture makes me think maybe not, and the group itself gives no hints at all. MYSTERIOUS.
