Nostradamus’s Pants

Wow. There’s a song by a very famous Dutch comedian about Nostradamus, and the chorus goes like this: “Nostradamus, Nostradamus. Nostradamus in his tight green pants. They were looking good on him! Nostradamus, Nostradamus. Nostradamus in his tight green pants.” When the song has seemingly finished, this chorus is then developed into an, uh, rather banal coda. (“Tight green pants. With a big bulge. Tight green pants. Big big big bulge. Tight green pants. That big **** of Nostradamus [… and so on].”)

(Turns out there’s an English show of his on Youtube, if you’re curious. No Nostradamus, I think.)

Oh well, fell down that rabbit hole for a while. A few for your delectation.

The Plague Tutorial

Just two short steps.

The Terrible, Old Shit!

A fair description of a large part of the IF back catalogue.

Monday, For Tea

And then the Beast said to Belle: “I want you.” She replied, breathlessly, already unbuttoning her shirt: “When do you want me? How do you want me?”

Operation Operate!

Not the most inspired episode of ER.

One Way Dagger

It would be good for the assassin if that direction were in .

Gamlet Studies

Not a game. An academic magazine dedicated to the works of J. Pudlo, entirely written and edited by said J. Pudlo under a wide variety of pseudonyms.

Flawed II

Truly takes the formula of the first part to perfection.


Some of these have the makings of a speed-jam.

The cursed dagger can only be carried in one direction. Too bad you’re in Rome.

You, Sir, owe me a cup of coffee because I deserve another chance to keep it all in the cup. :rofl:

Just Another Christmas Primer

So, this Jesus person dies on a cross two thousand years ago. And he was God. And that’s why we celebrate his birthday – well, not his birthday, but some heathen festival that the Church thought it prudent to assimilate – by decorating a tree, eating too much food, drinking too much wine, putting expensive presents in specially-made oversized socks, and listening to a Mariah Carey song that we all hate. You still don’t get it? Okay, let me start again from the beginning…

Did he attempt to shave himself?


I don’t even want to know what the barber ERROR is. You can be sure it’s a very serious error, because it’s all in caps. If the barber says, “oops,” you’re about to have a very bad day. Or month. This one kind of writes itself if you think about it for a minute.

“Largo al Factotum” is full of tongue-twisters. Singers learning that piece from “Barber of Seville” make lots of ERRORs.
