Internet Fluency

Here at CSC, I'd like to make everyone a little more fluent in the slang of the interwebs (interwebs=the tubes=the internet). One thing that is said on the web a lot is "do not want". It comes from a great blog post called "Star Wars: Backstroke of the West." With the Chinese olympics coming up, we will be seeing lots of funny Chinese translations like this menu. People have been tracking these for a while at Engrish. Anyway, Star Wars Backstroke of the West, was an early released Chienese bootleg version of Star Wars 3 . The english subtitles that came with it are hillarious , and worth a look. The final climatic scene where Vader screams "No!!!!!!" comes out as "Do Not Want!!!!" So now you can use this in your every day conversations. Example, Me: "Hey man, here's this picture of Rosie O'Donnell in a swimsuit." You: "Do not want!!!!"
