"Miss Literary"

Overheard in front of the coffice:
"You ever heard of Anna Karenina?"

"Yeah."

"Wow, check out Miss Literary, over here. I thought it was... heh... I thought it was a remedy for Montezuma's revenge."*
* What does that even mean? Do you get it? I don't.

  4. I am thinking that the person feels a little insecure around Miss Literary and impulsively showed off his or her extensive, high brow knowledge of shit. A good response from Miss Lit would have been:
    "Well now, listen to Mr./ Ms. Fecal Historian over here."

  5. I totally didn't get it - but it made me snicker, anyway.

    Then I came here and read the comments, and actually laughed out loud....

    NolaNik, the next time someone is trying to intimidate me with their oh-so-extensive-intellect, why to I get the feeling that I am going to have to bite the insides of my cheeks to stop from blurting out your fab "Fecal Historian" line????

  6. I know. My mind goes to the potty humor every time. Can't stop myself. I was surprised to find that I am more dark than dirty according to the 3 variable funny test:
    57% dark, 38% spontaneous, 26% vulgar.

    Go figure...

  8. Those who don't know fecal history are doomed to repeat it.

    Yes, we could be facing Montezuma vs. Dostoyevsky all over again. Seductive, tragic, volcanic, runny...
