That’s right, say it with me: Prisecolinensinenciousol
I) How’s that for neat! How often do you hear someone speaking another language? German, Cantonese, Italian? They all sounds like gibberish if you don’t speak these languages (or Lan-gway-gies, as my non-English speaking relative once said).
This video is called Prisecolinensinenciousol. It was done for an Italian T.V. Programme called Mileluci by Adriano Celentano as a parody of the English language. Linguistically it is so accurate that I feel like I should understand the words. This should really throw you for a loop!
II) In local news, Edmonton Oinker (not a typo), Taylor Hall, is injured because he chose to neglect the number one contact sport safety rule. Hall didn’t wear a helmut and visor to practise. Global News reported last night that Hall had his face skated over in a (totally avoidable) “freak accident”. Don’t get me wrong, No one deserves a skate to the face, but if you play a sport where the odds are in your favour of hurting your head at least once, wear your helmet. Don’t worry though ladies, Hall was assigned a plastic surgeon and is probably getting fixed up now, so he can still look like this:
III) Our last bit today is both global and personal. As I’m sure most of you are aware, since we use it on a daily, if not hourly basis, English Wikipedia has gone dark for 24 hours today. In protest of SOPA and PIPA, which stand for ”Stop Online Piracy Act” and “Protect International Property Act.” I will admit that SOPA and PIPA have never held my attention, but damn you Wikipedia for having to make a point. How else am I going to learn random facts throughout the day??? Looks like Russian Wikipedia it is.
