pronouncing foucault as "fucko"
@garbados one time in US history i was giving a presentation on Klaus Fuchs and i pronounced his name "Klaus Fucks" for like 15 minutes until the teacher corrected me
@dirt one time in english i was giving a presentation on walt whitman and queerness and the teacher interrupted me to say “your thesis is invalid because it was much less stigmatized then to be gay” and a very queer and very secret part of me mumbled her way through the rest of it
@garbados it was what now?
@dirt i’d be delighted to hear him reason it out today lol but i’m afraid the nuance has been lost to time
@garbados i mean, i'm so terrible at pronouncing french that if someone told me that is how it's pronounced, with a straight face, i might believe them
@balrogboogie for lexical crimes i hereby sentence you to cancellation 🙅
(jk jk jk ❤️ )
@garbados My favourite philosopher, Mikey Fucko...
@garbados "I loved your pendulum, fucko"
@garbados oh yeah, Umberto Eco’s “Fucko’s Pendulum.”
