gluten-free baking is more or less a process of “damn, I hope this works”.
mortalcities said: personally i prefer the title “fuckit VIII”
also a strong contender!
alternatively, is there a way you can title a work of art with an interpretive dance, so when refer people to it, they have to bust a move
One day I want to write and direct a cult webseries. It’ll be all fun and games but
the culmination of the entire thing will be an entomology/etymology pun
the cast is in a building somewhere, being terrorized by swarms of giant/poisonous/otherwise inconvenient insects and someone yells, “get the entomologist!”
but someone mishears and they grab the team’s etymologist instead (preferably played by Jeff Goldblum)
and he just goes on about “ah, but did you know, did you know, duffel bag comes from the seventeenth century Duffel in Belgium, which comes from the Gaulish for “water”? First used in a 1917 letter by e e cummings, how about that?”
the camera pans in on Goldblum as everyone else is slowly eaten by the insects. Goldblum is inexplicably spared. We get to an uncomfortable close-up and we see that he’s palpably terrified, shaking, peals of sweat rolling down his temple, but he knows that he must go on. He was called here for a purpose - get the etymologist, they said, he’ll know what to do - and so he continues, “s-so, that e e cummings, huh? w-well let’s do a critical analysis of his syntax…”
he continues talking as the camera pans back out to the wreckage, before his voice fades and everything fades to black.
