A few weeks ago in French class, we were split into pairs and tasked with writing a short conversation between two people, one of whom had lost something, and then presenting it to the class. Sounds basic, yes? Well, it wasn’t quite so simple for me, I’m afraid.
At the time, I was just recovering from a nasty case of bronchitis and my voice sounded awful, and the girl I had been paired with was not feeling much better, as she was coming down with a nasty cold herself. Together, we probably sounded like two old, wheezing geese honking out a stumbling conversation in French. We were also probably sleep-deprived, and this was the last (or second to last?) week of the term, with moods running high and students being excited for the holidays. Thus, our (meant-to-be-serious) written conversation quickly took a turn for the silly, devolving into a rather bizarre story of a horse inexplicably getting lost near a restaurant in Marseille. It was finished hastily amid much quiet giggling and coughing, and it is my pleasure to present it to you here.
Ah, cats. Does anyone not love them? They’re awesome, fluffy little creatures that the internet seems to worship, and so, for this week’s Fun Friday, I just had to present my five favourite cat GIFS! So, without further ado, here they are.
1. Grumpy Cat – the king of internet cats
2. Now that’s a stylish way to get home …
3. I can just watch this over and over again.
4. This actually looks like fun …
5. Transformers Cat!
Well, it’s that time of the week again when I post something funny I’ve found on the web, and this week it’s a song that has been stuck in my head all week.
It’s called ‘Just Glue Some Gears On It (And Call It Steampunk), and is easily one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. It’s pretty damn catchy as well.
For those of you who don’t know, Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction set in Victorian times, but with future technology. However, in recent times, it’s come to include a whole subculture of fashion, artistic styles and unusual inventions. This video makes fun of some of the lazier inventions …
Anyway, enough of my rambling … Enjoy the video!
I have to admit this song really makes me want to form a barbershop quartet.
As part of our work for French next term, we have to research and give a talk about French art. Of course, being the fun-loving geek that I am, I decided to go straight to French comic books, and take a look at the Franco-Belgian comic industry. And I discovered something quite funny: Le Chat.
Nom: Le Chat
Par: Philippe Geluck
Première édition: March 22, 1983
Publié dans: Le Soir, a Belgian newspaper
Le Chat, as you can see, is an adult, human-sized cat, and it is one of the bestselling Franco-Belgian comic series. I like to think of him as the Belgian Garfield.
Thanks for reading! ✿
Fridays are great. And with Fun Friday, they’re about to get even greater. Every Friday (or whenever I feel like uploading something funny), I’m going to upload GIFS, memes, or just funny pictures and videos. So check back every so often and enjoy!
This Friday, it’s cute animals. Prepare for some ‘awwwwwww’ moments …
First up, this wallaby gets his food stolen.
This is delicio- Oh, man …
This dog is enjoying some takeaway food:
This pug is feeling a little bit shy [warning: extra adorableness here]
Why are those people still looking at me?
And this dog is just plain adorable.
Hey, what are you doing to my ton- Hehe …
