The man, only named as Jan, married Monica, his family's former au pair in a previous marriage

I bet the ex-wife is having a good laugh.

Sybarite: I bet the ex-wife is having a good laugh.


I bet she's telling all her friends, "Well I knew that all along."

Am I weird for thinking I'd just be disappointed for not being told sooner, rather than freaking the hell out like this guy?

To be honest after 19 years I'm not sure I'd care, if it didn't bother me before why should I care? But I'm also glad I'll probably never have to find out if that really is how i'd react.

Not just freaking out, but actually beating his wife, according to his statement in the article.

Belgium, Belgian, whatever. And while subby might be right about this as a Fark headline, I believe I heard the most unnecessary use of the word Belgian in a sentence the other day when someone said mayonnaise is used on "Belgian style French fries"

I know I get stabby when I hear people use "Belgium" as the adjective form (e.g. "Belgium waffles").

Well except for the way she scratched her empty ball sack.

In his defense, he's Belgian and someone chose to have sex with him - so he's still pretty much ahead of the game.

Maybe he should have caught on the first time she said "hey, smell my finger" after doing so.

"Monica began to change very much," he said


Oh, I think some big changes had already happened before that, bud...

"...his Indonesian wife of 19 years had been born a man."

That's a pretty long gestation period.

"Even during sex, I never noticed anything," he said.

My compliments to the surgeon and I'm guessing that someone is heading back to Indonesia to tell them so in person at some point in the near future.

H2G2? In Life, the Universe and Everything, there's the Rory award, for

'The Most Gratuitous Use Of The Word "fark" In A Serious Screenplay. It's very prestigious.'
'I see', said Arthur, 'yes, and what do you get for that?'


But that's just because the US publishers were a bunch of pussies.

Censorship

This book is the only one in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series to have been censored in its U.S. edition.[4] The word "asshole" is replaced with the word "kneebiter", and the word "shiat" is replaced with "swut". Possibly the most famous example of censorship is in Chapter 22 and 23, which in the U.K. edition mentions that a Rory was an award for the Most Gratuitous Use of the Word 'fark' in a Serious Screenplay. In the U.S. edition, this was changed to "Belgium" and the text from the original radio series describing "Belgium" as the most offensive word in the galaxy is reused.

They're called "traps" in the common parlance for a reason. As we see here.
