New Kovy Update ("As the Kovy Turns")

12,307 posts in this topic

I said I don't want to be a tool but hey what can I say, he did use it incorrectly. Since you brought it back up...I'll explain: Just having the word "surely" in a sentence doesn't make the joke make sense. "Surely" has to be at the beginning of the sentence (as in: Surely, there will be a Russian professional hockey league 17 years from now) This was how it worked in the movie and it was funny because "Surely" is at the beginning of the sentence where you would actually say a name. Where I had "surely" in the sentence makes it so it doesn't make sense with the punchline. -With how I said it, I wasn't calling anyone "Shirley". (I said: "There will surely be a Russian professional hockey league 17 years from now.")

ON a smaller note: Then, the poster's response was "Don't call me surely" The joke is that the response is, "Don't call me Shirley".

I love airplane. It's a LOL movie. He butchered the joke.

Not to be a twat, but I disagree. I think with the post above you were the first to take out your cleaver and set to work. :evil: now, allow me to pick up my scalpel...

I'd say everyone got it and laughed (who would laugh). Perhaps one might stop and consider his choice - I concluded that, in written form, he had to go with Surely over Shirley otherwise the mock misunderstanding makes less sense. To take issue with that is akin to taking issue with the verbal gag saying - "but he was clearly using surely as an adverb, not a proper name thus the joke has no merit."

EDIT:

WHAT? The ref just gave me 2 for Jamie Langenbrunnering! :rant:

"Ahhhh, quit yer Langenbrunnering!"

Would that be a verb? Or can we use as like "Dude, you're such a langenbrunner!"

And Doc already has a patent on the adjective "Langenbrunnerian." It might even be in Webster's by now, a couple pages ahead of "Odeleinian."

Doc already turned Langenbrunner into an adjective, now we want to make it a verb as well?

I don't think we have the same stuff Rowdy does -- I don't think I have a reason for edit.... that would be cool though - proactively respond to sammyk... if he ever CARED anymore... <_<

MANUAL REASON FOR EDIT: nope - you need half-mod skillz I guess :saddevil:

Apparently so. Didn't even think of that when I did it. Weird thing is, I don't normally use that box, I just write in the post itself.

Dude! I was just Langenbrunnering about how much longer we are going to have to wait for the Kovy decision and I read this...

It appears the NHL and NHLPA will probably agree upon a system arbitrator to rule on the Ilya Kovalchuk grievance by the end of this week. A hearing would probably would wait until early next week, though, with the ruling coming by the end of next week.
:argh: Lets get this done already! (Favorably to us)

Langenbrunnering sounds like it's somehow related to the cincinatti bowtie.

Hence why we don't hear much about jagr these days...

except when he got knocked on his ass in the Olympics. That was like a visual end to any comeback talk

yeah jagr would probably be around a 60 point power play specialist at this stage in his career. i mean, teams would want him, but he would no longer be a top-line player, and he's never been good at defense and has always taken stupid penalties.

I don't mean to be a tool but if you're going to use that joke/quote from Airplane, at least do it correctly.

So is this more correct oh great one?

Surely ben00rs isn't a tool!

He is, and please don't call me Shirley!

Better?

That was the minor issue. I explained the main reason why it doesn't make sense. I am an "Airplane" fan...again, he butchered the joke.
