NFL Showdown: GRRM vs Pat



Just received this little nugget of entertainement, courtesy of one George R. R. Martin...

Never thought I'd see the day when I would agree with basically everything Hitler is saying!!!:p

For once in my life I'm glad that I clicked a youtube link. And Hitler is right, Eli Manning does suck; goes to show you can find common ground with anybody, even one of histories greatest monsters.

I wonder if that's a hint that you'll have to read/review Mein Kampf, Pat :P

My friend, THIS was HILARIOUS. I'm sending it to my sister. She would get a kick out of it.

Larry, that would surely top Goodkind's Complete Masterworks. :)

Of course, although I was teasing, I'm probably one of the very few people reading this who not only had to read Mein Kampf on multiple occasions (for two German History seminars for my BA and MA degrees, not to mention my undergraduate thesis), but also the posthumously-published Hitler's Secret Book. *shudders* It was as if Tairy had taken his drivel, fed it into Babelfish for the German, and then back again for the "translation."

I don't think Martin could be that cruel to Pat. Right?

Anthony said...

That was great. Simply brilliant. Thanks for sharing.

I never made it past the first chapter of Mein Kamp, and I gave up on Wizard's First Rule halfway through the torture scene - I'm certainly not a masochist. ;)

I wrote my papers about the Jews in the Middle Ages and the Republic of Weimar, and for Literature it was French epics and Ibsen. More fun.

Larry said...

True, but I also had to read quite a few of Hitler's speeches (in both translation and in my very rudimentary German) as well, so I'm still scarred from that. All that to present a paper on the questions regarding Hitler's religious identity/evolution.

I shudder to think of some future person having to write about the evolution of Tairy's "philosophy"...

Ouch, that would top writing about Goethe's Chosen Attractions (Wahlverwandtschaften) - not that this novel is trash, but it's so boring.

Nay, I stay with my Romans and Mediaval knights. :)

Another reason to hate Hitler:

Doesn't care about the Chargers and would like to see Patriots go undefeated.

GO CHARGERS!!!

Everyone knows that evil roots for the Cowboys and Patriots. Go Giants!
