All girls are traps

Post by Warwick » Fri Jul 17, 2009 11:11 pm

So I'm reading a play called The Glass Menagerie for English class (taking summer classes), and I come across this little bit:
The Glass Menagerie, Scene 6 wrote:[AMANDA produces two powder puffs which she wraps in handkerchiefs and stuffs in LAURA's bosom.]

LAURA: Mother, what are you doing?

AMANDA: They call them 'Gay Deceivers'!

LAURA: I won't wear them !

AMANDA: YOU Will !

LAURA: Why should I?

AMANDA: Because, to be painfully honest, your chest is flat.

LAURA: You make it seem like we were setting a trap.

AMANDA: All pretty girls are a trap, a pretty trap, and men expect them to be !

[LEGEND: ' A PRETTY TRAP']
Would've put it in the Hideaki thread, but that's dead and gone, and I didn't want to necro. I'm saving the green color for another friend that needs to move his dead bones (get the references, and you get teh internets).

Just what does that say about us men who know this and still line up to make damn fools of ourselves over the scheming women. :wink:

Glad I don't fall into that group.

God damnit, now I've got that song stuck in my head.

Yet, there is always tomorrow and Kenji is right; they are plotting every mans downfall. :lol:

Yes, we must help our fellow man against the tyranny of the feminists!

...unfortunately, that involves getting them to start thinking more with their brains and less with their penises. A very tall order, to say the least. :lol:

I'm sorry to have to point out that I've had to work with many men over the years who were better equiped to think with their penis than their brains. When the brains were being handed out they were in line for dick extensions. Oh well, they make good cannon fodder and will charge through Shizune's minefileds and machineguns with no thought. Hell, their specialty is "no thought". :twisted:

Adolph was an emo poser. Stalin was the model for Kenji. He proved that being nucking futz was no hinderance to absolute power if you were ruthless enough. So, maybe Shizune/Misha modled on Mao? :twisted:

Not gonna disagree with you there.

Still doesn't mean you can run a country or a military properly. Seriously, Zerg Rushing was never a good tactic IRL. The only thing the CCCP was ever good at was building weapons, and that was mostly after Stalin was dead.

Kenji's more like Guevara, but I do see the "nucking futz" part of Stalin in there somewhere.

EDIT: Actually, now that I rethink it, General Jack Ripper from Dr. Strangelove is the inspiration.

I love The Glass Menagerie! It's my favorite play, 'cause Laura makes me cry.

I like Forrest Gump for the same reasons. (Isn't it sad, Jenny?) Color me crazy, but I prefer media that can bring me to catharsis.

Anyway, as far as women being traps... The bait is so fucking worth it... and I don't mean fucking by that either, though it is a plus. Besides, when it comes to that I like being trapped. :twisted:

Damn, more along the lines of "totalitarian regimes" than Nazi name calling, but Godwin's Law has been invoked. The 4LS Forum Rules Comittiee must make the determination for thread lock.
How vote the members of the comittiee? Aye or Nay? :lol:

My vote is cast and behold: it is "nay".


But to the original post of this thread, yes - every woman is a trap but men would not have it any other way. As Helena of Troy and countless other women have brought misery upon mankind there never remains enough animosity to learn a permanent lesson.
Men need the magic only a woman can provide. Not necessarily in an outright sexual context but in the delusion of being more etheral than your fellow man.
Ahh, Morticia? I would die for her. I would kill for her. Either way, what bliss.

Speaking of traps, does reverse trap make me gay?
