Towering Indignity

2:00 PM -- According to Reuters UK, North Korea has again objected eloquently to being classed as a member of the Axis of Evil:

"The Korean people are expressing towering indignation at those outcries, terming them frenzy of a guy bereft of reason and spasm of a lunatic."

(A guy with too much time on his hands notes that " 'lunatic' and 'spasm' have not appeared together in a story from the North during the Bush presidency.")

Say what you will about the Pyongyangians, they certainly have a way with English.

re: Towering Indignity Lite Rock,
I cried through TAWP and agree with your sentiments. But I also have to agree with the sage comments of a previous posting.

I have become a believer that profanity is uneccesary, regardless of the form. Written (acronyms included) or spoken, It is a result of either a poor descision making or limited vocabulary. In this case I feel certain it is not the later. Either way I think the point is moot.

Did you see last night's Darth Chef episode of South Park? I found it uncomfortably crude but got its moral points across. Crudeness makes many people uncomfortable and I feel guilty about sometimes finding it so funny: I think Stone and Parker are masters at using profanity in a totally non-hostile manner... but I still feel guilty.

re: Towering Indignity Chef brainwashed by an international conspiracy of pedophiles? Pretty hostile, I'd say. Also pretty perfect. I don't feel a bit guilty about enjoying it.
It'll be interesting to see whether it plays in the UK, where the original Scifitologist show was blacked out.

re: Towering Indignity Larry,

What I meant by non-hostile was their use of profanity (seems to) denigrate the characters that are using it instead of women or others as targets.

Normal profanity tends to target some groups as being less valuable than others: They seem to use it to show how inane people are who use it seriously.
Parker and Stone tend to show everyone as odd and save their true venom for terrorists, Hollywood, Scientology and pedophiles.

Its a dangerous game they play, but I think it works: but I still feel guilty to laugh at potty mouths.

re: Towering Indignity CLGFR,

Now look what you've done. Gone and spoiled the mood, again.

What are we gonna do with you? :-)

It is entirely appropriate when splitting hairs, to make sure what kind of hairs thou art splitting...

I would argue that there are some type that should be left alone.


Is anyone else feeling a bit "IL"?

Hopefully, you're not suggesting copycatting the fate of Chef. :-)

But you got me! I am clueless as to what "IL" means in the context:

Is anyone else feeling a bit "IL"?

... and its bugging me. (Can you spare a web link to enlighten me?)
