I got more rhymes than there’s leaves in Lothlorien

Elbereth Gilthoniel !
we still remember we who dwell.
On the this far land beneath the trees
Thy starlight on the Western seas.
A Elbereth Gilthoniel,
silivren penna míriel 
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel

Which means…

Elf booty got soul!
Elf girls like to rock’n’roll!

Elf booty got soul!
Elf girls like to rock’n’roll!

The Lords of the Rhymes

Poppy the Penguin is a  little Christmas penguin made out of decorated Shaker boxes. Isn't he cute? He visits our ER every Christmas. Unfortunately, once Christmas is over, he tends to get into trouble.


There was the time Poppy visited Saudi Arabia and committed adultery. Oops. Or was it because he was conspiring with Scottish Catholics to murder Queen Elizabeth I? Anyway, it wasn't pretty.


Poppy tried out that theory that if you jump up and down in a falling elevator, you won't be injured if you're in the air when it hits bottom. Poppy discovered the theory isn't worth much.


Poppy is gene-spliced. Ben and Jerry's refuse to use him in their 'Penguin Frenzy' ice cream.


Poppy learns the terrible secret of Tiphares.


Poppy cosplays as Desty Nova in the ninth tankoubon of Gunnm. Boy, is this an obscure joke.


Poppy is murdered by walrus terrorists. His body lies in state while thousands of penguins file past it, weeping, casting flowers and herring upon the catafalque. 


Poppy is possessed by the Devil.
So sue me, I know it sucks. It's only my second gif animation, and the first one was even more air sickness-inducing.

mu(ku), mu(keru), mu(kou), mu(kau)
meaning: face towards, beyond
向かう == mukau == face, confront, proceed to
X 向き == X muki == facing towards X, aimed at X, suitable for X
Originally a pictogram of a house with a window. As in English, 'facing' could also meaning 'opposite', which apparently led to such meanings as 'beyond'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'House window faces one.'



meaning: subject, title
例題 == redai == example question
題名 == daimei == title
Right radical is 'head', as in (顔). Left radical is 'proper' (是), being used phonetically to express 'hairless'. This character originally meant 'forehead', and still does in Chinese. Its present use may have arisen from slaves being tattooed on the forehead; this was their 'title'. Henshall suggests taking the left radical as 'day' (日), and 'correct' (正), and as a mnemonic:  'Get subject heading correct on the day.'
