  2. I notice he conveniently left out Puck of Alpha Flight. Racist.

  3. The way he puts it, it sounds like he's harboring a grudge against Short People.

  5. Hates short people but has yoda t-shirt. Odd.

  6. I guess since Star Wars is set in a sci-fi/space-opera universe it counts as "real life" and not fantasy.

  7. Not for nothing, but wasn't it the 7 dwarves who saved Snow White's bacon? I mean, the prince only woke her ass up with a kiss - didn't they end up KILLING her evil mother?

  8. I think he needs a visit from Randall the crotch-punching janitor from Scrubs

  9. @Caitlin: Are you saying he's racist against short people or against Canadians?

  10. @Tigerama: In the original Brothers Grim story the dwarfs do all the work. The prince just fell in love with what he thought was a dead body and asked the dwarfs to carry her to his castle (creepy). The dwarfs just trip which makes the stuck apple pop out, thus saving her life. All the prince did was be a be a nasty necrophiliac. (who's name might have been Jack.)

  11. There's another version of the story where the dwarves haul off and kill her mother, the woodsman, and I think her entire palace guard. Of course the Grimms collected tales from much earlier celtic sources that get progressively more grotesque the further back you go.

  12. I would like to read the older versions of the Grimm's tales. Anyone know a good version/book?

    Um... wouldn't that make YOU the "racists" for thinking that "Dwarves" are another race. They're just deformed people! :P

  14. You'd have to go back to the earliest of stuff like The Dagda or The Morrigan, and at that point the language gets to be a headache to read. (Which is why, post-doc, I stick to Fables, lol)

  15. @Martha Canadians--obviously dwarves are people too! ...Short people.

    Thanks. I guess I could check out something slighty more recent.

  17. Yes. So if my downstairs neighbor EVER pull me out of my apartment building if it was on fire and the staircase collapsed while i was on it and I fell and broke my legs, I should completely demean and emasculate him to comments like "Hey Frodo." or "I was at a bar and they did midget wrestling, was that you?"

    Good to know.

    1. God. Look at that grammar and spelling. Way to go, me. Sorry guys, you shouldn't have to see stuff like that.
