Against a Dark Background

Lowd was the Agrimonie in the Newe Entomologiste last night, with voices raised in unseemlie Dischord.
"Hist!" quoth Another Kiwi. "What means it with these kitsche and stinkardly daubs of underclad Wenches and popular Idolls that bedeck the walls, daubed upon black Cashmere fabrick, so vial in taste as to cast a moraine upon the Kine and to curdle the Eleemosynary Ale in the Mug?"
"Whither away," quoth Smut Clyde, "with the witty portrayts of Hounds playing Shuffleboard and Nine-Mannes-Morris of whych we wot so well?"

"Quoth off," sayeth Evangeline van Holsterin, foremost among serving-wenches, whose word none dare dispute for fear of her wrath with the Banhammer that falleth like Reyne. "You are Elitests quashing the Arte of the People with your High-Browe Æsthetick. Black Vellum Illumination is a Valid Expression of vernacular Taste."

And the Angel Santorum did come to Mary, and say, "Thou must have thy Blessed Rape-Child, or else Catholics will be wearing golden hangers around their necks for the next few Millenia."

So when is your book coming out? I cannot wait to read more of the Curious Happeningeings at the Olde Entomolologiste?

Next time someone gets on my nerves I'm just going to tell them to "Quoth Off". :)

"Ure styll a loonie" quothed Ms Van Holsterin. "Putt the peenuttes back inna bowle forr the varlettes woo paye"

I've never been fond of the taste of vernacular. Perhaps I should try it professionally prepared?

Another Kiwi said...

I think it depends on the supplier of your vernacules, Mikey. You gotta know the right people
