Latinese

Yet another glorious outburst by P. God bless the weekend. There is a Monk-Morial day marathon on, and P just isn't down with our American school jargon.

Lt. Discher: Monk is coming up, it was Trudy's Alma Mater
Lt. Stottlemayer: Great.
P: What the FUCK!
P: Alma Mater?! Phi beta kappa phi phi beta!
P: What's wrong with you Americans? Making up words all the time?!
Me: It's Latin, and Greek. You guys don't have that?
P: What the F*&^ is Alma Mater?! Think you're sooooo cool with you're FU*(ing words!
Me: It just means you graduated from somewhere, it's vocab, dude.
P: Whatever, where I'm from, we say what we mean.
Me: Wow, taking it a little personal, aren't you?
P: You guys are just trying to make everyone else feel dumb with your secret language.
Me: Latin is the basis of nearly every European language, it's no secret.
P: Well, then....phi beta beta phi phi beta, you guys are dumb.
Me: It's ok, P, we'll get you a hot dog.
P: Weinershnitzel?
Me: Sure.
P: Ok.

Where is P from that they don't use Latin?

And since you mentioned both Buffalo Bill and Monk today, it should be noted that Ted Levine who plays Captain Stottlemayer on Monk also was Buffalo Bill in the Silence of the Lambs.

So... seriously, do you think somewhere P has a blog about his gullible flatmate? Or maybe you're a private experiment for some university study?

I'm quite intrigued. It's just so hard to believe he's this fu(*ed up.

This is now my new favorite saying: "phi beta beta phi phi beta, you guys are dumb"

HAHAHAHA A friend sent me this blog, and I LOVE it! : )

Wait a minute. "Weinerschnitzel" is just too good a punch line. P must have found the opportunity just too irrestistably funny. But a moment of weakness, and now we know for sure that P is the one running the experiment. Probably a regular commenter to this blog, too.

I have a "friend" exactly like this.
I actually thought this might have been another friend writing the blog as he now lives with this guy. This incident is almost exactly the same as one I had to endure recently.
Hands across the divide and all that jazz, my heart goes out to you...
