There’s this Violent Femmes song whose lyrics circle ’round this bit of text:
I built a machine; I took over the world.
(In one weekend)
I did it because I was looking for a project, and it was either take over the world or learn French.
So I took over the world, and next weekend, I can learn French.
Because this song exists and is stamped on my brain, I said to Kelly this week: “She’s obviously a take over the world or learn French person,” and she knew exactly what I meant.
This (largely unsingable) Violent Femmes video is brought to you by the Committee to have A&K be completely incomprehensible by the time they’re in the old folks home.
