third world

The Third World is not a reality but an ideology.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When the Somalians were merely another hungry third world people, we sent them guns. Now that they are falling down dead from starvation, we send them troops. Some may see in this a tidy metaphor for the entire relationship between north and south. But it would make a whole lot more sense nutritionally -- as well as providing infinitely more vivid viewing -- if the Somalians could be persuaded to eat the troops.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To the United States the Third World often takes the form of a black woman who has been made pregnant in a moment of passion and who shows up one day in the reception room on the forty-ninth floor threatening to make a scene. The lawyers pay the woman off; sometimes uniformed guards accompany her to the elevators.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Ambassador Walker: The Third World is not a world apart... and the witness you will hear today speaks on its behalf. Let us hear the voice of that world. Let us learn from that voice... and let us ignore it no more. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Solomon Vandy.More [04/07/2007 12:04:00]

DuPont: In the first years of the 21st century, a third World War broke out. Those of us who survived knew mankind could never survive a fourth; that our own volatile natures could simply no longer be risked. So we have created a new arm of the law: The Grammaton Cleric, whose sole task it is to seek out and eradicate the true source of man's inhumanity to man - his ability to feel.More [10/14/2007 12:10:00]

Richard Messinger:
[reading an ad in his magazine] What is this? The Third World Film Festival? A great Libyan classic? This has to be some sort of joke.



Barney Halsted:
Richard, let's not go through fifteen minutes of jokes about the Third World Film Festival.



Richard Messinger:
Well, I'm just bewildered. Why are all these countries black or Oriental... and where are Sweden and Denmark?



Barney Halsted:
Sweden and Denmark are not uncommited nations. All countries with a predominantly black population are uncomitted. All countries with a predominantly white population are A-OK. That's how we know which countries to invade.

Captain Yelland:
This is the captain, I am speaking to every man aboard this ship. In the past few hours many things have happened; rumors of nuclear attacks and a third world war are totally untrue. We have no reason to believe that any aggression has been taken against our homes our families. I believe what we stumbled across is not man-made but a phenomena of nature, one that can't be explained. This phenomena is the storm in which the Nimitz went through less than 18 hours ago, the storm has had some effect on time as we know it, it created a portal, a door into another era. Today is December 7, 1941... I'm sure we are all aware of the significance of this date in this place in history. We are going to fight a battle that was lost before most of you were born. This time, with God's help, its going to be different... Good Luck.

Rory:
That's Blade. He runs the third world side of Cell Block 2. My dear, till Grossberger came along he held the axe murder record in the south-west! He's the one I'm gonna get you the cheesburger from. How do you like it, medium?



Harry Monroe:
Oh no, I don't want no cheesburger, I'm trying to, er, keep my weight down.



Rory:
Don't worry about him, I'll protect you. I'll protect you!



Harry Monroe:
I'm getting a little podge.



Rory:
For some reason I make him uneasy!


[Waves in a very camp manner toward Blade]



Harry Monroe:
I wonder why? Hi

Harry Monroe:

Julia:
Yes, you can give him a message. You do take shorthand, don't you? Good, we take it in the South too. Anyway, just tell him that I have been a Southerner all my life, and I can vouch for the fact the we do eat a lot of things down here... and we've certainly all had our share of grits and biscuits and gravy, and I myself have probably eaten enough fried chicken to feed a third world country - not to mention barbecue, cornbread, watermelon, fried pies, okra, and... yes... if I were being perfectly candid, I would have to admit we have also eaten our share of crow, and for all I know - during the darkest, leanest years of the Civil War, some of us may have had a Yankee or two for breakfast. But... speaking for myself and hundreds of thousands of my Southern ancestors who have evolved through many decades of poverty, strife, and turmoil, I would like for Mr. Weaks to know that we have surely eaten many things in the past, and we will surely eat many things in the future, but - God as my witness - we have never, I repeat,


[shouts]



Julia:
never eaten dirt!

Laurie:
Let's call the police.



Charlie:
No! We're in Mexico, Laurie. A third world country. You don't just call the police in a third world country and tell them you found eight human heads in your luggage.



Laurie:
Why not?



Charlie:
Because they have no laws here. They'll turn me into a taco.

Lilly:
Michael, don't always think you could get a ride with us and...


[sees Mia's new look]



Lilly:
Oy. Who destroyed you?



Mia:
Oh. You-you think it looks that bad?



Lilly:
You look ridiculous. You should sue.



Mia:
Well um... I know it's a little straighter and shorter and...



Lilly:
Weirder!


[Get's in limo]



Michael:
An attractive weirder.



Lilly:
No, it's not attractive!



Joe:
Seat belts, please.



Lilly:
What I really can't understand is that you ditched me again yesterday when I really needed your help at the greenpeace petition.


[picks up bag]



Lilly:
These bags! You HAVE one of these bags? You know, we could hock that and feed a whole third world country!


[Looks at Michael]

Am I right?

James Carter:
You just jealous, Lee, 'cause women like me. I'm tall, dark and hansome and you third world ugly.

Brody Sutton:
I still remember. Saturday morning cartoons, must-see-tv, news, fair and balanced. I also remember the first two Gulf wars, the second great depression, school shootings, and the music. It's the music I miss the most. There was freedom then. Freedom to do terrible things, but freedom all the same.



Beautiful Woman:
You will find that such primitive emotions and ideas as jealously, rage, sexual possessiveness, and monogamy have been eliminated. Your new implant has made you part of a collective whole known as the Community. In the Community you are truly free to move among partners, male or female, as you choose. Your pleasure will be your guide.



Brody Sutton:
I had a girlfriend once. We were going to get married. I remember being excited about that. She was killed in the first "purge" of the Leader. Rumor has it that 89 people died in one day. One day. And that was just in North America. The death toll in third world countries was reported to be much higher. Not that you could confirm such rumors.



Beautiful Woman:
The most significant health aspect of the implant regards aging. Each one of you can reasonably expect to live far longer than 200 years of productive life for the Community. As such is the case, the implant also functions as birth control. Only by the will of the Leader may you procreate. Praise to the Leader for the freedom he has given.



Brody Sutton:
Praise to the Leader? 10 years ago I watched my mother die of cancer. She grabbed my hand in her last moments, wanting me to stare out the window. She was seeing something that I couldn't see. But as she passed her face was truly peaceful, even in the midst of all her pain.



Beautiful Woman:
Those whose old jobs are no longer necessary will receive new assignment for the good of the Community. Information on how to do these new jobs will be downloaded into you through your implant.



Brody Sutton:
I remember my job, before *he* came on the scene, before all of this. I was a designer, engineer, and for Chevrolet. I was part of the team that designed the engine for the last Corvette ever manufactured. That was only a few years ago. Before the whole world went insane.

And why is our music called world music? I think people are being polite. What they want to say is that it's third world music. Like they use to call us under developed countries, now it has changed to developing countries, it's much more polite.More [07/21/2011 07:07:13]

Of course, Third World leaders love you. By ascribing third world ills to First World sins, you absolve them of blame for their countries' failure to advance.More [11/03/2011 05:11:05]

Giving birth was the most amazing thing I've ever done. I'd been living in a Third World country, and I said, 'I'm going to just squat behind a tree.' I basically did that but in a chair in my living room. I didn't want a sterile hospital room. I didn't want doctors. I had a midwife.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
On bad days, I think I'd like to be a plastic surgeon who goes to Third World countries and operates on children in villages with airlifts, and then I think, 'Yeah, right, I'm going to go back to undergraduate school and take all the biology I missed and then go to medical school.' No. No.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
My parents leaving a third world country to a first world country and building from nothing - that's really inspiring to me and it's influenced me in a positive way.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
