Quote of the Day

"The entire song is obscene."

-- Noted music connoissieur Brent Bozell on Cee-Lo's new single, Fuck You

The proper way to respond to Bozell -- who's an uptight, self-righteous pencil-dick on a good day -- is just way too obvious in this case, so I won't even bother.

Horrific, deplorable violence is ok, as long as people don't say any naughty words.

I can't wait to hear Bozell's insightfull take on Cee-Lo's NSFW video for No One's Gonna Love You.

The more usual spelling (in English) is "connoisseur".


P.s. I agree: 'fuck you' is so commonplace, generally, that it's lost most of its obscenity. Cf. Ben Folds Five song, years ago, called Song for the Dumped ( (Hey ho, it's a partly Japanese version!)

What's his fucking point?

You're very right, Benoit. That's one of those words that always trips me up. It's shocking I came within one letter and didn't spell it "konnisewer."

Benoît from Ottawa said...

Chez: That would be Konnie Sewer, and she's a friend, so watch out! ;)

(I still don't know why that "a" in that word turned into an "o". Not that it matters.)

Oh, and I hate to say it, but you tripped again. It's connoisseur, not "...sieur" -- (the "i" probably wants to be there, in your mind, because of "Monsieur").

I really never could understand why we have to use the "f" word at all. I knew a guy who continually used a similar word which was "bucking" instead of "f......" but it didn't sound nearly so bad. Maybe some of those who must use the f word could try this one instead.
