"That wasn't English, Keith! I mean, you're talking in Esperanto, or some language twins teach each other! I mean, the King's English, man! I mean, throw us a bone man - alright!" - Mike Myers as Mick Jagger to Keith Richards on snl
screw latin. latin is dead. esperanto is the future, much like my phone.
I am going to teach myself esperanto, I've decided. greg and i are going to take a correspondence course together. this comes from my watching part of Incubus on scifi 2 nights ago (the only movie ever filmed in esperanto). greg's going to learn it too so we can talk shit about people right in front of them since only like a few thousand speak it and even know of its existence. what appeals to me about it? supposedly it's easy to learn and no one knows it. there are so many funny things to say about esperanto...so many... what's that, you say? surely there's something better I could be doing with my time? no.
here's the rest of that snl sketch:
Kevin Nealon: This week, Warner Brothers' Records dropped rap artist Ice T from their label, after further controversy over his song "Cop Killer". Was the decision justified? Here with a Point Counterpoint are Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Mick Jagger: It's outrageous, man! It's outrageous! Keith, all the dude wants to do is write a bloody tune, man. And these guys are gettin' all cold for it, you know, it's all about censorship, man. Censorship - it's outrageous, it's outside, man.
Keith Richards: Lemme tell ya something, Mick - that's rubbish! The police, they serve and protect. They're the backbone of our bloody society. You gotta stand up for the cats in blue, man! If you didn't have rules, you'd have.. freakin' anarchy!
Mick Jagger: It's the bloody First Amendment, mate. I mean, if you can't write a song about killing a cop.. I mean, what's next? Won't be able to write about killing security guards.. or what - those bloody doormen, with their costumes and their "Nice weather we're having.." Or.. they want a bloody tip, man! When they really didn't do anything, you know! I can open a bloody door, you know?
Keith Richards: Mick.. you ignorant slut! All the time, you liberal claptrap.. [ mumbles unintelligibly ]
Mick Jagger: That wasn't English, Keith! I mean, you're talking in Esperanto, or some language twins teach each other! I mean, the King's English, man! I mean, throw us a bone man - alright!
Keith Richards: Listen, man, you're going sillin' go with the goin' bean!
Mick Jagger: What's that?
Keith Richards: You're gonna sillin' go with the goin' bean.
Mick Jagger: [ singing ] "You're gonna sillin' go with the goin' bean."
Mick & Keith: [ singing together ] "You're gonna sillin' go with the goin' bean. You're gonna sillin' go with the goin' bean."
Keith Richards: No, "Man."
Mick Jagger: You don't like the "Man"? It's great, though. Just invert it, Keith.
Mick & Keith: [ singing together ] "Sillin' go with the goin' bean. Sillin' go with the goin' bean."
Kevin Nealon: Well, Mick, Keith.. thanks for coming. Great! Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, with Point/Counterpoint.
