Feminary getting boring?

I give my full permission and endorsement for you to run my site (or the New York Times) through the Valley Girl translator: http://www.80s.com/Entertainment/ValleyURL/

Frightening. Try translating the Bible, for instance.

Try running this URL through the translator: http://www.google.com/url?sa=U&start=1&q=http://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/Jhn/Jhn001.html&e=10342

I think this was my favorite part:

There was like, you know, a dork sent from Gawd, whose name [was] John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe.
Like, he was like, you know, not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light.
[That] was like, you know, the true Light, which lighteth every dork that cometh into the world.

I said to my roommate, "I want to be a dork sent from God!" and she answered me. "Have you thought of the possibility that you are indeed already one?" :)

I liked this sequence of emphatic repetition:

13 Like, duh! You shall not murder.
14 Like, duh! You shall not commit adultery.
15 Like, duh! You shall not steal.
16 Like, duh! You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 Like, duh! You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his stud servant or his Valley Girl servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

How 'bout the BCP?

It is totally right, and a bitchin' and joyful thing, always and every-
where to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of
heaven and earth.
