Does the end really justify the means?

Favourite quotes or scenes from books? on 8/23/2016 3:52:55 PM

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.

Quote:

“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.

I am glad you are safe, and i genuinely wish i could send over more than just my thoughts.

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.
