i agree with whit on this one... awesome... and to answer you question, i think not...
Will the newts later get better?
Mixing random references, are we?
You seem surprised - have you been reading the comments recently? ;)
A newt once bit my sister, she and sven a dentist were carving their initials onto the newts leg (small knife) when. . .Oh, and regarding the actual reference. . .Huh?
well, they shocked the newts (not going to get INTO what they did to the monkeys) and I asked if they later got better.What's the problem??~wink~
My reference was specifically to The Code of the Woosters, P.G. Wodehouse. Funny stuff (also see TCotW for references to Spode eating asparagus bringing into doubt the idea of man as nature's last word). Vika's was to Monty Python & the Holy Grail ("She turned me into a newt!" (staring at the regular-looking man) He sheepishly says, "I got better!" Or at least that was what I thought she was referencing.
Yup, and then Peter Gabriel's Shock the Monkey was thrown in for effect.
Oh thank god! I was worried it was different verb with the monkeys. . . And fer the love god, of course I got the Holy Grail bit! It was Woosters stuff I don't know and still have no idea what you're talking about
I didn't read the Woosters stuff either, I just wiki'd it.
Its definitely worth reading (I've just started myself), and, if you're not a reader, its worth checking out the Jeeves and Wooster series. Actually the series is worth checking out regardless since Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are awesome.
I would start with The Code of the Woosters. It is generally considered the best--and I have to agree. Jeeves and Wooster is also great fun, but sort of a whole other thing, since much of the fun of Wodehouse is the turns of phrase.
