Meme Me


Today, we're going to try a transmogrification type of meme. Or maybe it's more along the lines of anthropomorphism. Whichever it is, it might be fun.

Imagine for a moment that you are a penguin. Turn down the heat, flap your arms up and down, chatter a bit, and waddle around a little to get yourself into a penguin mindset. That feels pretty good, doesn't it? Are you craving a fish yet? Keep going. Now slide on completely into penguin persona and answer a few ... penguin questions. You don't need a degree in Zoology to do this. All you need is a whimsical sense of humor and a little imagination. The only object of this exercise is to have fun with it.

What is your name? _____________.
How old are you? ______________.
Your age would be comparable to what still-living human? __________.
What is your mate's cute little penguin name? ____________.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how cute are you? __________.
Your favorite food is __________.
One food you absolutely would not eat because it would surely bring up penguin barf is __________.
Your favorite activity is ______________.
Your least favorite activity is ___________.
Your favorite time of year is ____________.
To love, you say ___________.
Do you wish that you could fly? ___________.
How do you feel about being exploited during Christmas? ______________.
Your favorite color is ____________.
Do you feel cheated of royalties from all those greeting cards, commercials, holiday sweaters and socks, etc., that bear your likeness? _____________.
Your choice of swear word is ___________.
Don't you love being a penguin? ____________.


And now reverting back to your human incarnation, because penguins don't do the 12 Days of Christmas, on the 10th day of Christmas, your true love gave to you -- what? Will you love it or hate it?

As if yesterday weren't strange enough, somebody sideswiped my car in the parking lot at work and left me a long, ugly, paint-peeling scrape. Grrrrrr!

TWISTED LINGUISTICS is in rare fine form today, meting out justice to these rogue Words Gone Wild.

nece - Could be fine, could be a sibling's girl child. Or, it could be a fine daughter of one's sibling.

writere's - People who think they can produce readable prose.

noveloists - People who butcher innocent literature.

distgribution - Those who grab and relocate gribs. I don't know what gribs are. You?

ticken - A timid chicken.

Odd Google search terms I've seen this week:
sexy sloths
abuse of innocent punctuation marks
bullshit is dee
general pants
nosy girl

What is your name? Chilly Willie Opus McFlightless, IV

How old are you? Very….seven.

Your age would be comparable to what still-living human? Most, I’m seven!

What is your mate's cute little penguin name? They all kind of look the same so names are pointless. I just yell “I’m horny” and hope the penguin that responds is female. Of course, it is really hard to tell until the last second.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how cute are you? I am a ten. I got dressed up and everything.

Your favorite food is shark meat. Fair is fair!

One food you absolutely would not eat because it would surely bring up penguin barf is ironically, penguin barf.

Your favorite activity is sloth.

Your least favorite activity is activities.

Your favorite time of year is lunch time.

To love, you say “to what now?”

Do you wish that you could fly? Only when falling.

How do you feel about being exploited during Christmas? I get exploited?! Woo-Who!

Your favorite color is black with white spots.


Do you feel cheated of royalties from all those greeting cards, commercials, holiday sweaters and socks, etc., that bear your likeness? Nope. I had a great lawyer.

Don't you love being a penguin? Yes, except when falling.


12 days of Christmas?! I need to convert I guess. I only get 8 days of Hannukah.

Serena Joy said...

Liver, Galen? Do penguins even eat liver? What, is that like fish liver? Are you sure that won't make the poor little things barf? Um, you seem to have a thing for red.:) I'm laughing my butt off at your choice of penguin swear word.:-)

LOL, /t. That's one of those things that'll stop you in your tracks, huh? I think you should try coding a piece on that.:)

Kanrei, you make such a cute little penguin. Even your swearing is cute:) I should have told you that you can substitute your Hannukah gifts and cut it off at 8.:)

Sexy sloths never die, they just do it slower. LOL

Serena Joy said...

Thank you, Mona, for such a nice comment from such a gracious lady. Hope you're feeling less tired today.:)

You don't like ANY fish cooked, Charles? I can't abide it raw, but I do love a nice grilled or crispy fried fish.:-)

Sorry your first comment got eaten, Corn Dog, but it looks like you persevered in the end. The car. Yeah. I looked at it and thought, "Merry fucking Christmas to me." A cheeseburger-loving penguin? I love it! I like the idea of a penguin union to hold all the reindeer action in check, too. Let's work on that.:-)
