Yes!! That translation is so wonderful. Do you have the bilingual edition with the Old English on the opposing pages? So damn cool.

Yep. Not that the original text does me any good. I can't figure out how Old English has any relationship whatsoever to modern English.

Not sure I see (a) why it would be funny, or (b) why it would make you wish her to be dead.

a) funny cause of the way its written

b) because she goes around the internet saying how she wishes she aborted her son ("poured him down the sink", "stabbed him with a rusty coat hanger") just because he looked at porn. also her blog which is full of rediculous overly-dramatic nonsense.


EDIT: i realize it was one of her mindless paranoid followers who made the "wish i aborted my son" comment, so i change "she needs to die" to "her cult and everyone in it needs to die"
