"i meant- Said Ipslore bitterly -What is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?-
Death thought about it.
Cats- He said eventually -Cats are nice" Terry Pratchett, Sourcery.
Does the end really justify the means?

Scene: Off the top of my head, probably the death by crown in Song of Ice and Fire. Partly because i found it so satisfying that that character was gone, partly because i loved the way the author made them die.
“If complete and utter chaos was lightning, then he'd be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armour and shouting 'All gods are bastards!” From The Colour of Magic. I dont know why that sentence made me laugh as much as it did, but it did.
Is there a name for this? on 8/23/2016 11:55:55 AM
I guess a play on words is probably the closest thing, although some are just reciting words that just sound similar, and some i think would fall more on the bad joke cathegory. What about the structure? Isn't there a name for jokes structured like that? I say this because i recall someone calling it a name somewhere, and after searching for a long time i really can't find it.

So, i was watching my favourite show on Youtube, Citation Needed. Which is a quiz show of sorts using Wikipedia articles. You guess the contents of the article, you get a point. You have the most points, you win. Now, in the show there's an interesting type of prize, which is not really a prize but a ... sentence. For example:
You win a gift voucher to everyone's favourite communist shop - Which is of course Marx & Spencer
You win two hours racing around the coast desperately trying to collect clams with a ballerina - Darcey Bussell's Muscle hustle
You win a DVD of the film where the singer of purple rain trades places with a peasant who looks just like him - The artist formally known as prince and the pauper
You win permission to dress up as a famous frog and go hide in a cave - a hermit kermit permit
You win an intimate waxing by a legendary 6-time grammy winning american composer - Burt Bacharach Back, Crack, and Sack
If you want more examples: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Pv8xtrHYKDTvKr9uqQQYoAmxfHDV6rEwIL9PZu3c8GA/edit#gid=0
Now, what i want to know is, is there a name for all of these things? A single, existing and specific cathegory in which we can store all of these sentences?
Can't eat almonds... on 8/21/2016 2:55:09 PM
Murder the almonds. All of them, and all other nuts too. From the dreaded walnuts to the tasteless pecans. They betrayed your trust and now must pay.

Yes, the gift from the gods themselves, some say. Do you cook and/or bake?

It comes at a cost, you know. Namely overstimating your knowledge enough to try to experiment with stuff that no real chef would ever try in a million years, and then it being too late to regret it.
Pro tip: Never try to make your pancakes with spinach, banana and ketchup. Ever.

Actually, yes! I dont try it that often though. Most of the time i mess something up and my mother gets really mad, but i feel ive gotten better recently. I love making bread pudding.

Aside from reading, i have an interest in cooking. That's not to say that i am good at it, but i do enjoy making me some wonderful pasta from time to time. And of course youtube videos, tons and tons of them. Mostly the educational ones.
