The Zoo at The Edge of the World began as a play. Written for a college playwriting class, I conceived and developed the idea with my college roommates and best friends Nick and Matt Lang.
It had always been my fantasy to talk to animals, and I wanted to write about a kid who lived at a zoo. ZOO…
Franklin: What sort of bird shall we choose as the symbol of our new America?
Adams: The eagle. :|
Jefferson: The dove. :)
Franklin: The turkey. :D
Adams: The eagle. >:|
Jefferson: The dove. >_>
Adams: THE-EA-GLE. >8(
Jefferson: …The eagle. -.-
Franklin: The turkey~ |D
Having seen wild turkeys up close and personal (and been held up in traffic because a flock of them decides to either flap or waddle their way across a main road in town), I’m fully in Franklin’s corner with this one.
No, seriously, Once, somewhere in the wooded back roads of Rhode Island, a wild turkey attempted to charge down my CAR. I thought it was a garbage can in the middle of the road, but nope. Then the bird spreads his plumage out fully and starts stomping towards my car. At which point I just tossed the car into park and started cracking up, because really, only me.
But you gotta admit, it takes chutzpah to charge down something that’s, like, twenty times the size of you. So I can see where Franklin was coming from with the mascot bit. ;)
because fuck you that’s why
i was ok until i realised your URL
another way to ruin a pop classic with teenage angst. Cyndi Lauper would be turning in her freshly dug grave
ah yEs, those angsty teenage years when overdramatic girls go through that oh-so-trivial phase of believing they deserve fundamental human rights a hah ha *wipes a stray tear of mirth*
Cyndi Laupers not even dead
Cyndi Lauper is a long-time activist for human rights and would most likely be holding the damn sign herself
"It is not a dirty word, "feminism." I just think that women belong in the human population with the same rights as everybody else. … The problem is, "A feminist looks like this, or is like that." We are taught not to like ourselves as women, we are taught what we’re supposed to look like, what our measurements are supposed to be. I never hear what measurements men are supposed to be. Just women.”
- Cyndi Lauper
Has this dude ever even listened to the lyrics of that song?
I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Girls having fun is feminist as fuck.
Girls having fun is a lot harder than boys having fun, because of all the barriers society places between girls and having carefree fun.
This is not a blow-off song:
That’s all they really want
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
It’s about being allowed to have some time for you after you’ve completed your commitments, and how frustrating it is to be hemmed in all the time. ‘That’s all they really want’ isn’t saying ‘women are just frivolous’, OK, it’s saying ‘Give us a BREAK - we aren’t asking for that much! Being an independent woman isn’t being joyless, we just want what you take for granted: fun’. JFC.
