Actually -- to be techinically correct to Canon -- the female worm charmer would be Sheeana from Rakis, not Muad-dib.

I'm so sorry there is not Adult Worm Charming contest. Think of entendres and innuendos.
 
2009-06-28 09:57:44 AM  
I'm sorry, I can't think of any non-sexual meaning for "worm charming..."

we used to do this at school. pin out a square metre, then pour a bucket of warm soapy water over it. They just come up to the surface. Well, it was either that or jump up and down on the ground like a loon.

Great. Now I,ve got this image of pedobear with a worm for a dick. Thanks Fark! *pukes*

Now if someone would just pant a worm up like a panda we'd be back to square one.

I like my worm getting panted on.

I heard a heavy metal rod hammered into the yielding soil then stroked by a hardened-steel garden shovel with vibrate a worm out.

Now that you mention it, so do I. Bring on the panting!

+1 for the Dune reference.

Charming worms sounds so much more dignified than grunting for worms

Wait, no it doesn't.
 
2009-06-28 10:32:27 AM  
We have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.
 
2009-06-28 10:33:43 AM  
Sounds tiny.
 
2009-06-28 10:34:19 AM  
Is it cheating if she uses a thumper?
 
2009-06-28 10:35:52 AM  
I approve of this headline. No Dune cat yet though?

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

The worms were then drowned and the Water of Life collected for the siech orgy.

FTFA:
Worm charming is an ancient, noble and mysterious art,
Yes indeed.
One charmer was banned for life after concealing worms in his trouser legs
Yep, right there with ya.
It dictates that the worms must be treated kindly,
But, of course.
The consequent vibrations bring worms to the surface where they are collected by an assistant, known in competitive circles as a ghillieFLUFFER.
Seen it in a movie once...OK several times.....in a row.
Best to be careful then, and stick to the official line that the worms endure nothing more than a little light exercise.
That's what I'm callin it.
"When it's warm, with a bit of moisture in the air like today you'd expect a good score,
You betcha.
Moles are a worm's worst nightmare,
That, and bad teeth.

/That's fertile ground there, slim.
//Nothing: I gots it.
///Nothing to do: Gots lots of that too.

FTFA: One charmer was banned for life after concealing worms in his trouser legs to sprinkle on the ground - "we got suspicious when we saw him wearing bicycle clips," says championship organiser Mike Forster.

How bad must your life be going if your goal is to cheat at worm charming, of all things? I'm sure there's much more interesting things hobbies he could be cheating at.

I just watched Dune last night for the first time. It was weird and made no sense.

ObscureNameHere: CORRECTION:
Actually -- to be techinically correct to Canon -- the female worm charmer would be Sheeana from Rakis, not Muad-dib.


THANK YOU! I hate it when asshats who don't know Dune mythology try to reference it. That'd be like me trying to talk Pokemon with my seven year old nephew.

A. You need to lighten up, and
B. You don't know the definition of "mythology".

I just finished reading Sandworms of Dune, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

The movie is almost nothing like the book at all. Read the book, it's worth it.

Good! Stop after reading "ChapterHouse". Now matter what Amazon tells, there are only SIX DUNE BOOKS!
