The Total Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant/Ball-of-Fat
Missionaries / Hawaii: Lanaluakalani is critical of the way Christian missionaries ‘bent over’ the native Hawaiian people, and is skeptical of any American involvement on Mitimotu, preferring that Germany help liberate her people from the French. The Princess and the Frog: Pam refers to Lanaluakalani and Fuchs as ‘The Princess and the Kraut’ possibly a reference to Disney tale which is loosely based on ‘The Frog Prince’.
The Graduate ( : The silhouette of Veronica Deane changing while telling Archer to get comfortable is a reference to the 1967 film. Tenzing Norgay: Basking in the afterglow from his time with Veronica Deane, Archer asks, “I wonder if this is how Tenzing Norgay feels?” Tenzing Norgay was the Nepalese Sherpa who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary, on May 29, 1953, as the first men to successfully reach the summit of Mount Everest. Waterboarding: This controversial form of torture, which has been used by the CIA in its “War on Terror”, is something Archer has not experienced until now. Lewis & Clark / Lois & Clark (1993- : When Ray and Cyril try to remember the directions to the bar Archer mocks them saying “thanks Lois and Clark” which is both a reference to the famous explorers and a mocking of Ray’s sexuality by changing Lewis to Lois thus also referencing the mid nineties American television series. 101 Dalmatians ( : Lana calls Cheryl “Gluella de Vil” a reference to the movie’s main antagonist Cruella de Vil combined with Cheryl’s glue eating habit.
Arabs are the invaders, occupiers of the land and that the all issue. There were always Jews living in the land even after the destruction of second Temple in 70AD. There were previous residents in Israel before 3800 years, so whats your problem?
This is some of the most tendentious and specious writing on the Israel/Palestinian conflict I have ever had the dubious pleasure of reading. ANY people who deem themselves holier, worthier and more blessed than ANY other people…….are racist, bigoted misanthropes. The fact that there are Swedish Jews, Ethiopian Jews, Russian Jews, and Jews born in South Carolina proves this fact, and disproves any idea of “Jewish Identity.” Is there a Scientologist Identity, that is inherited by their children. It is only a matter of time before this regime will fail in its aims of dispossessing and disenfranchising the Palestinians. They are simply a group of Arabs who happen to live in one geographic region with no national identity.
Panties, too.” This is a reference to the famous rape scene in the film “Deliverance”. Lana uses her combat knife to cut Cyril’s tank top and orders him to remove his briefs, saying “Get naked.
Archer calls the Mounties “Dudley Douchebag” in reference to Dudley Do-Right famed cartoon Mountie. Román Calzado shouts “What the hell damn guy!” after Lana shoots a knife from his hand near the end of the episode. The episode title is a reference to the television series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
You quote where I wrote “For instance, after a series of riots in Jaffa in 1921 resulting in the deaths of 47 Jews and 48 Arabs” and then go on as though I was being misleading or denying that “the Arabs attacked the Jews”, as you say, when in fact in the very next sentence I refer explicitly to “Arab attacks on Jewish communities”. What Zionist benefactors?, the Brits had total control over everything including immigration, Jewish immigration was extremely limited unlike arab immigration that was unregistered and basically open border policy. Also the way you speak like its understandable that Arabs kicked out the Jews because of what happened in Israel, shifting the blame to the Jewish side.
While Brazilian singer Falcão did an intentionally broken English translation of a cheesy and popular song about a black VW Beetle, he named it “Black People Car” – because difficulties in translating the local name of the car (Fusca) made him seek what Volkswagen meant in German, and it was “people’s car”. In English it means “Horse with no name”, a song the main character was listening to in the episode. This final Sabbath should be a time of great rejoicing in all that God has done for you and your church during the Ten Days of Prayer.
Everyone recognized the South Africa-born Noah’s claim of being born in Wakanda as a joke, but only speakers of Xhosa realized what he actually said in that language was “White people don’t know I’m lying”. Dec often added short phrases of broken Polish to his rants, usually expressing his love for the place he has been to only once in his life. In the episode “Here There Be Dwarves”, the dwarves shout “Lave sus Manos!” (“Wash your hands”) as a battle cry, rather than “Vaya con Dios!” (“Go with God”). As such, english speakers may miss things like the narrator expressing surprise that people “realmente se comen esa mierda” (are actually eating that shit). Much of the non-English text references the fact that many players won’t be able to translate it, reveals future plot elements (including one character’s ending), and contains other untranslated jokes.
And let’s not forget that 78% the land set that was originally earmarked for the Jewish state under the Balfour Declaration had already been given to the Jordanians…. Thank goodness they did….the arab world was about to be 99% ethnically cleansed of Jews so it was indeed fortunate that these 800,000 Jewish refugees has somewhere to go…. The Zionists and their Western benefactors rejected that democratic solution, and the Zionists then unilaterally, with no legal authority, declared the existence of Israel, and subsequently ethnically cleansed Palestine, never allowing Arabs to return to their own homes and lands. The Arabs proposed that the independence of Palestine be recognized and a representative government including Jews be established under a constitution that recognized the rights of the Jewish minority.
Bea Benaderet: To rile Slater, Archer mistakes the plot of The Manchurian Candidate for On The Town, then rants about this mid-20th-century film and voice actress. Bob Ross: Archer tells Krieger that he needs him to get his big bushy “Bob Rossian” head out of his ass referring to Krieger’s new hair style which is similar in appearance to the American painter and television host best known as the creator and host of the long running PBS television series The Joy of Painting. This is a reference to the song Brass Monkey by the Beastie Boys. Brass Monkey: Archer mocks Cyril as being immature and asks him why not try putting some Spanish fly in her brass monkey. Negging: Cyril asks Ray when he should start “negging” her (Barbie Zissner) which is a pickup strategy whereby a person makes a deliberate backhanded compliment to another person in order to undermine his or her confidence in a way that gains approval.
While coming up with ideas on how to smuggle the cocaine, Lana jokingly says she’ll ‘eat 40 pounds of coke filled rubbers ‘. Archer refers to the Tunt Manor as a ‘Gilded Age Mansion ‘.
Pronounced Wa-She-Shoo; is a typical reservation slur for Native Americans to use when talking about white people in a derogatory manner. Used to describe a white person who is obssesed with japanese culture.
While in the vault, Cheryl can be seen wearing a helmet with a black peace sign button a reference to the movie poster of Stanley Kubrick’s film Full Metal Jacket. Archer wants Woodhouse to cook macrobiotic food which is claimed to be beneficial for people with cancer. Archer gave Rita the alias Chet Manley, which a reference to the boy who owned the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before they were mutated. When Archer faints, Malory says, “You’d think he was half fainting goat.” This is a reference to myotonic (or fainting) goats. When Krieger yells “You blew it up!” after Lana breaks his digital girlfriend, it is a reference to the end of the original Planet of the Apes.
Harry Potter: Lana calls Malory “Ron Measly” for being cheap, which is a play on the name of a character form the book and film series, Ron Weasley. RMS Titanic: Lana wonders if she walked into the Titanic as she enters the mansion’s exercise room followed by a crash, cut to the String quintet playing as a visual reference like the band of the Titanic that continued to play as the ship sank. Star Wars ( : When seeing the complex security system, Archer refers to Ray as Ain’t-2-D2 in reference to Archer’s belief that Ray can interface with electronic equipment like R2-D2. Bechdel test: Malory and Lana argue over Archer flirting with Veronica Deane, as well as Lana flirting with Ellis Crane.
