Ahahahah...I've been translated!

So, I did a Google search on "lemonlye" (egosurfing, they call it), and it turned up a few blogs in which people had posted my TTT parody, which is neat. But here's the awesome and hilarious one: someone translated the whole thing into Portugeuse.

Not only does this give me a glow of interlingual happiness, but it has provided us all with the indispensable gift of how to say "You're just jealous because I'm pretty" in Portugeuse. (Você está com inveja porque eu sou lindo.)

EOMER: Oi! Ok, me digam se vocês já escutaram essa. Um elfo, um homem e um anão entram na Terra dos Cavaleiros...
LEGOLAS: Ooh! E o elfo atira flechas num imbecíl que está montando um cavalo. Sim, eu JÁ escutei essa! É uma das minhas favoritas.
ARAGORN: Calma, Legolas. Pessoal, vocês viram dois carinhas, dessa altura..?
EOMER: Não. Oh! A menos que eles estejam naquela pilha de corpos que queimamos.
ARAGORN: Obrigado; isso é...muito útil...
EOMER: É, foi mal. Peguem alguns cavalos.

Yeah, it's Portuguese. Incidentally, I wanted to mention that I thought your parody was inspired and brilliant, and that reading it through no fault of your own has prompted me to add you to my friends list. I hope that's alright.

Aziraphale! From Good Omens? I was using that for a chatroom name, once, years ago. I love angel names...they're always so cool and otherworldly.

So yeah, it's fine, welcome. :) And thanks for the compliments, and for verifying the Portugeuse. I was about 99% sure that's what it was. Guess I can go back now and edit the entry to remove the line in which doubt is expressed.

Yup, that's me. I've been using this name ever since I read the book. It's esoteric enough for me to use it without having to tack numbers onto the end of it.

But yeah, I dig on angel names too, for the same reasons as you, I think.

Someone translated my 'Middle-Earth chatroom' into Spanish (I think. French? I suck at languages). I can't speak the language, but I'm a little proud to have something now titled 'La Compagnia dell'Anello in chat'

ShireGardener: Sto bene, signor Frodo. L'Ovest vi si piace?
Frodo4eva: Beh, gli elfi sono molto piacevoli. A Merry però non piacerebbe.... niente carote.
ShireGardener: Oh è una vergogna.

that's Italian. =)
and mollyringle i also loved your parody so much i added you, and also hope thats ok!!
Jan. 14th, 2003 09:52 am (UTC)
Sure; the more the merrier. :)

Jan. 14th, 2003 09:50 am (UTC)
Ahh, yes, that's Italian. Which I'm happy to see, because I can actually kind of read Italian.

Merry doesn't like the elves because they don't have carrots, eh? Hehehe...

Its South American-ish portuguese.
Jan. 14th, 2003 02:57 am (UTC)
heh heh. that made me do this...

"My name is Samwise Montoya. You killed my Gaffer. Prepare to die..."

(OK, so Inigo Montoya spoke Spanish, not Portugeuse, but hey...)

Ohhh... that does indeed open a rich vein of parodic crossover... :D

Just some for instancing:

- If Fezzini kidnapped Arwen, would Aragorn be able to best his Spaniard and his giant?
- Does this mean that after Cirith Ungol Sam can take Frodo to Miracle Max?
- If Sam, Frodo and Gollum all stood on each other's shoulders, could they pretend to be the Dread Pirate Roberts?

Oohh, boy, don't even tempt me...

heheh...all of those are great images...and also, Treebeard's angry shout upon seeing the stumps at Isengard sounded quite a bit like the Sound of Ultimate Suffering.

Plus, the Dead Marshes sure look a lot like the Fire Swamp. "Rodentssss of unusual size? We don't believe they exist, no, preciousss."

That's wonderful! :D

BTW, I don't know your view on Mr Bush, but here is a very silly pic of him LOTR stylee.
Jan. 14th, 2003 09:55 am (UTC)
Ah, yes, that's been posted on lordoftherings... And I generally like Mr Bush, but I'll admit that they did a nice Photoshop job on it. :)

How funny! Someone translated our publisher's pipu page into Spanish (link).
Jan. 15th, 2003 11:59 am (UTC)
I love reading your journal, and I'd really like to add you as a friend - would that be ok with you?
Jan. 15th, 2003 07:40 pm (UTC)
Why, thanks. Yesss, precious, fine with me. :)

Re: a request
Aww, this has been such entertainment, I hate to see it go. *grin*

But, seriously, sure, I will go right ahead and delete it. It will probably just invite too many extraneous comments anyway. ("My sister knew someone who plagiarized a term paper once; they got expelled! It sucked!")

Hehe...consider it gone. *snap fingers magically*

Re: a request
Thank you. Makes sure we don't get anyone new leaping into the fray when the fire is all nice and cool and everything has been straightened out and settled. Don't want to have to do even more damage control.

And thanks again for writing the parody, BTW. I'm pretty sure I commented at the time I first read it, but heck. It definitely, truly is the best TTT parody I've seen, ever, and I've seen a lot.

Re: a request
Thank you for the compliment. :)

I figure we can leave these few comments here, without inciting too much extra discussion...
