An Atypical Indicator of Genius


While by no means a reliable marker of stupidity, lowbrow humor is generally not a particularly dependable indicator of high intellect. However, it should be noted that humor of any type often does not translate well across cultures and this difficulty is greatly increased when one is attempting to convey a boorish bon-mot in something other than ones native tongue.

Learning a language is hard. Learning its nuances is extremely difficult.

Thus, the use by a native Russian speaker of the word 'titular' in this particular context can only be an indicator of the highest acumen and as such serves as an uplifting inspiration to all of us who are striving to learn a foreign language...at least those of us who are sufficiently problematic and déclassé to snicker at a boob joke.



Well played Pete.

2 Political correctness? In MY mee.nu?

There really is no fighting it, is there? Nowhere to even start. To paraphrase Doctor Who, it's not even an invasion, just a complete and total victory for the forces of socialism.

Nothing left to do but laugh, while we still can.

3 Wait...We were making juvenile boobie puns...Where is the political correctness here?
