Ridiculous-Looking Birds

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at June 13, 2004 11:39 PM

Last week's quote was from The West Wing:

CJ: What's your Secret Service code name?
Sam: They just changed them.
CJ: I know. What's yours.
Sam: Princeton.
CJ: Mine's Flamingo.
Sam: That's nice.
CJ: No it's not nice.
Sam: The flamingo's a nice-looking bird.
CJ: The flamingo's a ridiculous-looking bird.
Sam: You're not ridiculous-looking.
CJ: I know I'm not ridiculous-looking.
Sam: Any way for me to get out of this conversation?

This week's difficulty is Hard; 3 points.


I'm reminded of a certain cajun fella...

Okay, wild guess on the quote here; Milton's "Paradise Lost"?

Your wild guess is worth 3 points, as it is indeed correct. The quote appeared at the top of a chapter in The Confusion; generally I don't take much notice of those quotes but I really liked this one.

Well I'll be darned. I thought it sounded like Milton.

Alas, I am uncultured!

Interesting note: this quote was paraphrased by Yui Ikari in End of Evangelion, the Evangelion movie. But I didn't know it's poetic equivalent.
