Hello people !

I've got a problem with the song Don't Pick It Up

"He picked a candy bar up
Off the ground
He chowed about a half
Then his face turned blue
Turned out that candy bar was doggy-doo""


What is a bar of "doggy-doo" ??? I like to know if not I will become insane :eek:

And too I've got a question about Jennifer Lost The War with "Little miss 1565, your soul remains unclaimed"

I don't know if "little miss" means something like "since" or something like a lapse of memory

Sorry I'm french (and if you're angry fuck you)

Thanks :rolleyes:

You'll need someone who speaks fluent english and french to translate. I'm taking french, and a lot of the sentence tarts we use is flipped in French. Also idiomatic expressions and garmmar trats are different as well. A French to English dictionary won’t give you the correct way to use words in sentence.

In addition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartford_Circus_Fire

The circus tent fire that killed Little Miss 1565 was the Hartford Circus Fire of 1944. It was a tragedy on the level of the Oklahoma City Bombing at the time, especially being during WWII where a ton of the menfolk were overseas fighting--and it being a circus, many of the dead were women and children. Little Miss 1565 was notable and became the face of the tragedy because while most of the bodies found afterward were charred almost beyond recognition, hers was almost perfectly preserved. And yet, no one ever showed to claim her body. There's a very interesting book out there about the Circus Fire and in a large part Little Miss 1565 out there by Stewart O'Nan.

Euh... I don't understand what you don't understand :p I was thinking that the good ortograph for doggy-doo was that : doggy-do because of the verb "do" (do-did-done yeah I know my irregular verbs :cool: lol) but it was not that.

My parents speak english very good and if I've got a big problem for translate something I can ask my english professor. The most important it's that you understand what I want to tell when I write a post here. For improve my english I translate Offspring's lyrics and I watch DVDs in VO or I watch in french and I put the subtiles ect... Nowadays it's important to speak english for get a job and it's a pretty langage I like the way of the words have to sound, it's cool :D

"Doo" or "doo-doo" is an idiom for poop. Crap. Merde. I think it comes from the euphemism "to make," used to mean "to go to the bathroom"--"Excuse me, I have to go make now." "To do" and "to make" can often overlap in how they're used, and thus slang is born. Then, the excrement itself is "doo," or "doo-doo," or "doody."

Thanks for the explanation ^^
Tomorrow I could tell to my english professor "During the holidays I've learnt that doo or doo-doo equals merde :D "
Really funny I think she'll be very happy that I've spoken english during the holidays and that I've learnt new things ;)
So seriously thanks for helping me

Do and doo are two different words altogether. Do is when you do something and doo is just a turd. So, that's why they're spelled differently.

Also it should be mentioned that doo/doo doo/doody/etc. are considered childish.

Hey guys what do you think about that ? Today my english professor ask us to do a short story (200 words), a fable but with an unexpected end like "the Little girl and the wolf" by James Thurber (If you don't know this story it's like Little Red Riding Hood but when the little girl see the wolf in the grandmother's bed she takes an automatic out of her basket and shoots the wolf died it's funny)

So I've imagine that, one day, a charming-prince (with blond hair and blue eyes otherwise it's not a charming prince :rolleyes: ) was going to the princess' castle for give her a gift but when he goes across a very dark forest he meets a monster or a wolf I dunno I'll see about that but he meets a bad character who wants to kill him and keeps the princess' gift for him/it. So, the charming prince is a courageous man and he takes out his sword to the sheath ans he gets ready for the future blooding struggle. The bad character takes a dagger and runs very fast towards the beautiful charming-prince but he slips on a DOGGY-DOO(:D), fells feat the carapace of a tortose (But what the fuck she's doing here ???) and his head exploses because of the really solid carapace's and he dies in a pool of blood even we can see his brain palpitating). So the prince tidys his sword and goes to the castle for give the present to his love. She opens it and finds a pack of beer (desperados or kronembourg I dunno but you can give me ideas if you want).
At the end the charming-prince and the princess drinks like large alcoholics.(they're lucky)



moral : Thanks to tortose, because of it the charming-prince hasn't stained his beautiful sword and there wasn't bloodshed because of the sword(I'm not sure for the moral but I want something like that, if you've got ideas...:) )

Please tell me what do you think about this story and don't blame me if you don't understand some passages because of the faults I've doing :rolleyes:
And if you don't like, now his too late for me to find an other idea so fuck you ^^
Thanks !

A doggy-doo is dog poo.

Little Miss 1565 was a real person who was found dead, but she didn't belong to anyone.


The most well-known victim of the circus fire was a young, blonde girl wearing a white dress. She is known only as Little Miss 1565, named after the number assigned to her body at the city's makeshift morgue. Oddly well preserved even after her death in the fire, her face has become arguably the most well-known image of the fire. The Offspring mentioned her in their 1989 song Jennifer Lost the War. John & Mary wrote a song called "July 6th" (included on their 1990 CD "Victory Gardens") that was about her and the whole tragedy.

Her true identity has been a topic of debate and frustration in the Hartford area since the fire first occurred. Despite massive amounts of publicity and repeated displays of the famous photograph in nationwide magazines, she was never claimed and eventually was buried without a name in Hartford's Northwood cemetery, where a victims' memorial also stands.

In 1991, arson investigator Rick Davey (along with co-writer Don Massey) published A Matter of Degree: The Hartford Circus Fire and Mystery of Little Miss 1565, in which he claims the girl's name was Eleanor Emily Cook and that she was from Massachusetts. Davey also contends that there was a conspiracy within the judicial system to convict the Ringling defendants, and that Segee was the arsonist. Prior to writing the book, Davey spent six years researching the case and conducting his own experiments as to how the fire may have really started. He has professed the original investigation was both flawed and primitive, though he did not work on the original case.

Various assertions put forth in A Matter of Degree have been fiercely disputed by investigators who worked on the case, as well as by other writers, most notably Stewart O'Nan, who published The Circus Fire: A True Story of an American Tragedy in 2001. O'Nan points to the fact that Little Miss 1565 had blonde hair, while Eleanor Cook was a brunette. The shape of Little Miss 1565's face and that of Eleanor Cook are dissimilar, and the height and age of the two girls do not match up.

Perhaps most significant, when shown a photograph of Little Miss 1565, Eleanor's mother Mildred Corintha Parsons Cook immediately stated that this was not her daughter. She firmly maintained that stance until her death in 1997, age 91. Badly injured in the fire, Mrs. Cook had been unable to claim her two dead children, and was too emotionally traumatized to pursue it later. She'd been told that Eleanor was not in any of the locations where bodies were kept for identification. She believed that Eleanor was one of two children who had been burnt beyond recognition and remain unidentified. O'Nan thinks she may be Little Miss 1503. He further points to the differences in the dental records of Eleanor Cook and the records made of Little Miss 1565 after her death.

Due to the many supposed errors in Davey's work, A Matter of Degree is considered by some to be a work of revisionist history or journalistic sensationalism, with some victims and reviewers accusing Davey of using the book to further his own career and notoriety.

As O'Nan and others have pointed out, the most likely scenario is that a family claiming a body early on mistakenly identified Eleanor Cook for their own child and she is buried under that child's name. Even when "Little Miss 1565's" picture ran in the papers, they failed to recognize her as their own due to their desire to put the traumatic event behind them. While DNA analysis could end this debate definitively, the logistics of exhuming all the likely candidates for this mix-up rule this out.

With the questions over whether or not Eleanor Cook is the true identity of Little Miss 1565 still unanswered in the eyes of many, the body was exhumed after the release of A Matter of Degree and buried in Southampton, Massachusetts, next to the body of Edward Cook, the brother of Eleanor Cook and a victim of the circus fire himself (another brother, Donald, survived and worked with Davey to establish Miss 1565's identity). In 1992, her death certificate was officially changed from the previous identification of "1565." Since then, the Cook family has raised questions over whether or not the body is indeed that of Eleanor Cook, and some investigators have come to believe that Eleanor's body may have been another of the unclaimed bodies from the fire and not Little Miss 1565. As of 2005, the Connecticut State Police Forensic Science Lab is reviewing the case.
