Ruthie’s readings

Two recent One Big Happys:

(#1)

(#2)

Ruthie misunderstands a number of things here: in #1, the full cultural context of what she’s seeing on television, plus the interpretation of self-esteem issues (which she parses as selfish steam issues); and in #2, the interpretation of Oil of Olay (which she hears as Oil of Old Lady).

    Note J.R.R. Tolkien’s plural usage “dwarves”, which he advocated over the more usual “dwarfs”.

    What Israel needs is to discover some Oil of Oleh.
