Tedious intellectually superior haughtiness.
To make egregious use of vocabulary in colloquial conversation.
Thank you for this post! The verb ‘to tish’ should be used all over the world. Also, let’s not forget about the other weekenders.
to tino: to act sarcastic
to carver: to obsess about one’s shoes
to lor: to glue someone to the wall
The Weekenders - Tesla Park
Bejabbers, have I just found a fan of that show? Bless you!
Dave The Barbarian was brilliant. It was so hilarious. Part of me thinks that it wasn’t very well-received because the humor was completely offbeat/crazy and drew the attention of peculiar audiences instead. There was a lot of clever, witty and sarcastic dialogue from time to time, as well as many intricate words (the writers just loved to ‘tish’ :D) and those must have sounded gibberish to the target audience. The Weekenders had unique humor too, although the whole tone of the show was different. These types of series are more appreciated when people can understand the comedy involved and care to look closely at how smart and genius they really are, because they don’t show off their creativity, and go unnoticed since they tend to be quite self-effacing.
HOLY CRAP! I just found out a few things that are so AWESOME! Okay, so you know Wayne Brady from the amazing Whose Line is it Anyway? Well, he was the singer of the theme song of another awesome show, The Weekenders. And the creator, writer, and producer of the Weekenders, Doug Langdale, was also one of the writers of Darkwing Duck! You gotta love small world coincidences like that, especially for the coolest things in the world.
I know! :D Wayne did a fantastic job with the theme song. Great performance, and the lyrics he wrote (with the help of the talented Roger Neill, who composed The Weekenders’ original score) are very appropriate for the series.
And Doug Langdale… he’s the show’s warped genius. He wrote and story-edited a lot of episodes on Darkwing Duck and the creator of that show, Tad Stones (who’s a fan of The Weekenders by the way! :D) said that he was responsible for the best and most hysterical Megavolt scenes. Doug is hilarious. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the series I’m about to mention, but he also created, produced and wrote Dave The Barbarian. A good 80% of The Weekenders crew worked on that show (all the staff writers were there and most of the voice actors too!) and the result is beyond hilarious. It has a lot of The Weekenders vibe in a few random and exaggerated moments, and I’d say a bit of DD as well:

Great words of wisdom. But the line that follows is just as awesome!
