 THIS WEEK'S CARTOON !!

 The Fortune Teller Didn't Mince Her Words

= Falcı Lafını Esirgemedi...

--- You're having an affair with someone who has long black hair.
--- Aha! Aysel!
--- Someone from her immediate family doesn't approve of the affair...
--- That's right. That's her elder brother Nusret!
--- This man has thrown something at your face.
--- He tried to punch me on the face!
--- But, you ducked --
--- Oh, yes; and it was Aysel who got punched instead.
--- And then you did something to this man in return.
--- Oh, yes. I slapped him on the face!
--- But, he ducked, too.
--- Yeah! I too missed and hit Aysel instead.
--- Then, there was this pandemonium... All the bedlam broke loose...
--- Oh, yeah! Her brother and I pounced on Aysel together!
--- Could it be that you're somewhat of a nitwit?
--- Is that what the dregs say? ("Is that what the tea-leaves say?")
--- No. This is just my personal opinion.

 

 NOT: Burada "dregs" sözcüğü ile "coffee dregs" (kahve kalıntıları "telve") kastettim. İngilizce'de (falcılık literatüründe) "Is that what the tea-leaves say?" daha gerçekçi, dolayısıyla doğru çeviri olur...

 THE IRONY OF FATE

 Kaderin Cilvesi !!!

 

 -THE MAN [= Bir âdem]: Hello! I am Koray. I'm on my way to a fancy dress ball.

 THE GRIM REAPER [= Azrail]: Hmmmmm. Somehow, I have a feeling that you won't make it there!

 

 

 THIS WEEK'S CARTOON !!

 Analyse/Analyze This !!

 If you're wondering whether the correct spelling is analyse or analyze, the answer is that they are both correct -- just be consistent in your own usage.
Eğer doğru yazılış analyse mı yoksa analyze mı, diye merak ediyorsanız, yanıt: her ikisi de... Yeter ki kendi kullanımınızda tutarlı olunuz.
Anyway, psychoanalysis is a deep, deep subject --
to wit, just analyse/analyze the following situation:
Herneyse, psiko-analiz çok çok derin bir mevzu...
örneğin, siz bir de aşağıda durumu tahlil ediniz bakalım:

 -- Bebeklerini istiyorum senin...
-- Aaa-namadım... Doğurmak mı istiyorsun; kaçırmak mı;
mideye indirmek mi?
-- Her üçünü de... Söylediğin sırada...

Really Macabre!

 

 

 

 HALF-FULL, HALF-EMPTY

They say, if you're a positive person, then it's half-full; If you're a negative person, then it's half-empty.

An optimist thinks it half-full, a pessimist laments it is half-empty.

The science of psychology says, it's half-empty, if you're drinking out of it.

The science of physics points out, it's half-full, if you're filling it.

But the all-important existential truth is, it's going to be all -- bottle'n glass -- empty pretty soon.

So, be sagacious and expedient: Always keep a second bottle in reserve, says the sage İzbulismus.

 And, don't drink and drive, please !!
