(sorry -- first thing that popped into my head).

Having had this condition since I was born, confidence isn't a problem at this point. If I think I need to stay seated, I just look them in the eye and say "no".

The only time I am willing to not do this (willing not do this? You get the idea) is if I genuinely believe the person asking is in more need than me at the given time, because -- you know -- the greater good :)

To be honest, I didn't post this because of the fact it criticises Spanish.

I posted it because of the last two lines -- where someone refers to a non-binary girl and a non-binary boy and the guy below says "Yeah, we need to talk" cause that just made me burst out laughing when I read it :)

But apparently I was the only one?

Yeah -- it kind of loses something when you retell it out of context, but I'll give it a go :-

Agent Bork: Chief, you know that guy whose camper they were whacking off in?

Agent Fleming: Bork, you're a Federal Agent. You represent the United States government. Never end a sentence with a preposition.

See I am a huge grammar nerd, and I find grammar jokes, and dangling modifier jokes and so on, really funny.

But given the general level of humour in "Beavis and Butthead" I wasn't expecting this sort of joke, and it entirely caught me by surprise, and made me laugh for five minutes. I just thought it was far funnier and far better than most of the humour in the film.

Yeah, okay. Maybe it's just me.

Isn't that what happens when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie?

But not ending a sentence with a preposition lead to a surprising grammar joke in "Beavis and Butthead Do America" which was one of the highlights of my early twenties.

It was really something magnificent to behold :)

Who am I thinking of then?

Oh! Blue rinse!

I know there was a blue involved somewhere :)

(And not just the films that Johnny Sims was in. Fnar!!!)
