I read that as Gray Knights, and was very confused for a second

Pips don't lie, though.

No one truly appreciates a Pip until the bombs have fallen and you're fighting for survival in an irradiated wasteland.

Have fun trying to sort your inventory while being chased by feral ghouls, you Kennedy Center noobs.

The article changed Gladys to a "he".

Perhaps they should run their editing through an AI to avoid some of the glaring bad spots.

Not everyone related to the article is dead, and it still got published, so no Grey Knights.  So you (and the rest of us) are good.

That joke can't work today. If One Direction were on and 4 of them were taking a crap nobody would tell the difference.

Only two Pips are still alive and they are older than dirt. I strongly suspect that they're not in any condition to show up.

Gladys Knight and the Pips are in the R&R Hall of Fame, have a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, are in the GRAMMY Hall of Fame, inducted twice (along with a handful of wins and nominations), the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, the Apollo Theater Hall of Fame, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

Mandarin doesn't use gendered pronouns, so that can be a stumbling block for people who have that as a first language

wildcardjack: Perhaps they should run their editing through an AI to avoid some of the glaring bad spots.


but yeah it's probably AI instead of an uncertain translation. idk. i only know that when i was a wee rainbow droplet i once saw Miss Knight on tv, looking very 1970s, which is to say, way too thin for much bosom. also she was solo. being but a wee droplet, i did not comprehend the gale of laughter from my fam when i barked out
where's 'er Pips?
seriously didn't know what was so funny. believe me that it is the primmest-seeming people who love low-brow humor the most

Midnight Train to Georgia is pretty special: it's more fun to sing along with the Pips part

How did this article get approved? Reads like a bot wrote it. Seriously, a monkey would have done better.
