Sir Philip Sidney is not Amused
PLEASE POST MORE! I miss this blog!

I’m really glad people like this blog enough to miss it and the associated meme and I’ll try to post more when I have time, but…grad school.

People are always welcome to submit, though.

 

Your blog is magical.

Thank you!

Presented without comment.  (Though maybe a happy dance or two because Sir Philip Sidney is awesome and I’m glad people want to/have learn(ed) more about him because that was the purpose of this blog/project.)

I LOVE THIS TUMBLR! <3

Thank you!  :D

Sometimes people are constantly forcing the meme, making it unfunny without realizing, but this is not the case

Thank you!  I’m glad it’s not forced/unfunny.  :D

As a guy who has recently majored in English I think that this is awesomely funny, kudos good sir, or madam (I think you once mentioned you were a girl but I'm not so sure). So ignore the haters :D

Hate mail makes me smile, actually.  ^_^

I am quite glad you’re enjoying the meme.  :D

Gender makes no difference to me—most of my closer friends address me as male in jest, so I’m used to it….

owarn:

iamsirdan reblogged your post: That ‘Sir Philip Sidney is not amused’ bullshit isn’t fucking funny.

It’s probably only funny…people who like “English Major”-type jokes. There are several…

Oh so it’s one of those pretentious wanker jokes that people use to try and make themselves seem oh so witty.

I tried answering this on my personal account and it didn’t work because my browser doesn’t like Tumblr (I should have answered it here in the first place, though, so whatever).  Trying again:

The intent of this meme was never to be pretentious.  Some people just don’t find it funny, while other people do.  I probably don’t think half the things you find humorous are funny.

Unrelated, “wanker” is an awesome word.  Just saying.
