Snowblind,

It's something you should ask a doctor about.

Dodos, turkeys, ostriches, middle fingers...

I wonder if this joke might not translate well for readers whose native language isn't English.

Penguins, Ostriches, Emus, cassowaries... There are lots of them. But they aren't that easy to flip.

Kiwis.

I would just like to point out that wild turkeys can and do fly as I have had more than one close call involving said bird using the road as a runway.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I prefer to not flip kiwis.

And yes turkeys in the wild can fly. It's the domestic ones that can't.

In any case, I'm thinking still Belkar might be in over his head.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Turkeys can definitely fly.

And it's freaky as hell to have one come out of a tree 10' above your head in the dusk. Those things are way too big to suddenly fly down at you.

I swear to God I thought turkeys could fly!

To fully appreciate OotS, you need complete fluency in both English and DnD ;-)

I am not a native English speaker, and I'm wondering why the inhabitants of Ankara and Istanbul can fly, but all others humans not. :P

Giving/flipping someone "the bird" is slang for sticking your middle finger up at them, a derogetory gesture for f**k you/off.

I think there's a British equivalent but it eludes me atm.

Two fingers, pointer and middle in a V, back of the hand towards the subject.

Tri,

I meant euphemism-wise...

Apparently they are called the "two-fingered salute" or "the forks".

This is part of why I love the Paizo community so much. Breaking down barriers, and increasing understanding across social and international boundaries. I hope Sweden is paying attention; Lisa deserves a Nobel prize!

I'm guessing you're referring to the Nobel Peace Prize. That is handed out by the Norwegian parliament's Nobel committee.

Peace Prize - Norwegian parliament
Literature - Swedish Academy
Chemistry - Swedish Science Academy
Medicine or Physiology - Karolinska Institutet (Medical University in the Stockholm area)
Physics - Swedish Science Academy
Memorial Prize for Economics (not a Nobel) - Swedish National Bank

Cheers,

Usually 'the Vs' or 'the finger' in my part of Blighty.

In my experience, it's retty rare among adults: the kind of things kids do when the teacher's back is turned.

We love a good swear-word: guide to British swearing, not for polite society.

Stephen Fry explains why we enjoy a good swear

Pfft. Norway, Sweden—it's basically the same place, right?

Hey! Rome was the goths and vandals, don't blame us for their mascara-and-crushed-velvet-looting attacks.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Yeah, you're the guys who raided a small Italian town and mistook it for Rome.

Vandals are spray-paint-and-dumpster-fire damage, not mascara-and-crushed-velvet-looying attacks, okay?!

Italian? Why would we go all the way to Italy when upstate New York is so much closer?

Don't forget the hacking the nose off of statues.

It just fell off from weather erosion, and if it didn't was Napoleon's fault! #Sphinxfacts

Not that nose, the ones in (Roman) Carthago and points further west.

New York is west of Carthage! You guys always get so technical. This is exactly like the time in college when I was road tripping to Rome, New York, and I spray-painted "Hitdice was here" right before I started a dumpster fire. My friends were all, "What in god's name are you doing?" I was like "Isn't it obvious? I'm a vandal in Rome!" Everyone got real quiet then, until my history major roommate (a real egghead type, let me tell you) said, "What you're doing lacks any historical context, importance or relevance." I was pretty embarrassed, so I took my spray-can and spray-painted "4eva" at the bottom of my earlier graffiti.

Oh, hey, "graffiti," that's a roman word!

All I know is this is why I recommend we all use Klingon in our every day communications. :p ;)

That or Sindaran.

Sometimes I think Belkar's the smartest member of the time. But the raven's probably got him beat.

Often I think the Evil characters are the smartest members of the strip. Which just made me worried about that damn raven ;-P
