Have a link about it at wikipedia: Nu Shu.
I also want someone to write the fic where Spike went to Hogwarts before he was turned. I dont know why, but this idea struck me earlier, and I choked, and now i really want it.
Also, also, in an attempt to tell people where things came from and what they mean from that meme about random things I say that i expect people to get:
1. "Mr and Mrs Knievel, what would you like to name your son?" *creepy voice* "EEEEVIIILL."
Honestly, Im assuming this was said by some comedian somewheres, but I have no idea who. However, we use it as a "wow, you're doing something INCREDIBLY INSANE" type of remark.
2. "I have played buffet before."
Gallagher. And if you dont know who that is, get thee to blockbuster and ASK, because he is the awesome-est. Yes, he is the guy who smashes watermelons with a sledgehammer, but thats such a small part of his show.
We use this to mean, "I am not a moron. I know how to do this," for anything. My sister tells me which way to turn to get to OUR OWN HOUSE? My dad tells me to be sure to feed the baby? its a long winded way to say DUH.
3. "Hello! My name is Jose." "Jose what?" "Jose Jalapeno. On a STICK."
Another comedian. This one was a ventriloquist. With a giant jalapeno. On a stick. And why NOT use it? its FUNNY.
4. "Why is he allowed to get up? If he gets up, we'll all get up. It'll be anarchy!"
Breakfast Club. General grousing over whatever.
5. "It's Ok. I make lamb."
My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Used as reassurance that something really is fine with us.
6. "Spicy brains!"
Night of the Living Dead. or something. its possible its never actually said like this, but we use it as a form of affection.
yes, gnawing on each other's skills can be considered affection.
