Smithson Thus Far... ·


I think I would be awesome at writing romance novels, provided they starred brain-swapping octopus men. It's too bad Dave can't be this smooth himself, either here or in regular Narbonic continuity. Regular Dave seems to do okay, though.

I'm sure I was thinking of Gilbert and Sullivan with the last line here. It's a line from "Here's a how-de-do!" from The Mikado. ETA: I misremembered; it's actually from Iolanthe. Which is my favorite G&S operetta for some odd reason.

Leon Arnott (l) says: Even as the most physically imposing creature on the stage, Davenport finds himself utterly bereft of clout. It's downright disgraceful.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Is there such a thing as an ugly kettle of fish?  I suppose a pot of bouillabaisse would be pretty hideous, at least to the surviving relatives.

Valerie Kaplan (shinyhappygoth) says:

It isn't, actually.  The song includes "here's a how-de-do," "here's a pretty mess," and "here's the state of things."  No fish.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Poor Davenport.
Michael Duggan (md5i) says: It's from Iolanthe, in "Strephon's a Member of Parliament."
Lenore Hoyt (landsnark) says:

Please, please, please write romance novels with brain-swapping octopus men.  I am begging.
