Ad captandum – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_captandum


Monty Python recitations and sing-a-longs are like the ugly stepchildren of Oscar Wilde quotations. Who does not like an Oscar Wilde quotation? Who does like it when people re-enact and do their favorite Monty Python bits? (As it involves doing the voices and the accents aplenty, and there’s no clear end to such a recitation.)

Okay, well, maybe I’m the only one that likes such recitations. lulz.

But, see, I found this in a wiki entry on “ad captandum.” It holds up quite funny even without the voice or the accent:

“I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired… I’m certainly not! But I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.”

— parody of ad captandum statement, from Monty Python
