Manifestations of Baboonery Manifesto

To document the myriad travesties I have perpetrated and the travesties that have been perpetrated against me. (Professor B Chacma, July 2010)

Definition – travesty

(trav·es·ty n. pl. trav·es·ties)

  1. An amusingly appalling and/or excruciatingly embarrassing turn of events.  eg; Upon offering interior decoration feedback to my student era landlord:

“Take the bathroom for example – it looks like the tiling was done by someone with a mental illness.”

Landlord: “I did the tiling.”  (B Chacma, 1999)

2. Contrary to and or/an affront towards what I believe to be right, good and proper.

 “Jesus man! Putting a Kraft cheese slice on a tuna steak is a fucking travesty!” (Professor B Chacma, The Flange Summer BBQ, next to the Big Tree, 2010)

3. A combination of definitions one and two.

“God damn it Walter! You fuckin’ asshole! Everything’s a fuckin’ travesty with you, man!” (The Dude, The Big Lebowski, 1998.)
