Daddy Long Legs: Who Did Name You?

After yesterday’s nasty post, we need a palate cleanser.

Enter everyone’s favorite German, Flula. If you don’t know Flula, you should.

Flula has a difficult time understanding English idioms. For example, “Jennifer is a party pooper.” What?

He also doesn’t understand why a “Daddy Long Legs” spider was named as such. Let’s enjoy watching him process this and forget all about Naked Lunch for a bit.

    Reblogged this on Lauren Lansford and commented:
    I’m re-posting mostly for my love of Flula, but also because I think this is a great and silly example of how ridiculous our language is. I think it’s important for librarians, archivists, and other information professionals to be cognizant of that and tailor their tools with that idea in mind.
