  • I can only answer your question with a question: How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?

  • Huh? Oh--sorry!

    By the way, how do you solve a problem like Maria?

  • Ruzuzu? Wrong nun.

  • I can almost picture Sr. Bertrille high on a hill with her arms out, spinning around in circles, throwing ninja stars, and singing about Captain von Trapp.

  • What if Sr. Bertrille renunciated her nunhood before becoming a ninja?

    August 16, 2011

  • All right, if Sr. Bertrille were the ninja (and why not?) who saved two kittens, then she would be "njuna nujna ninja-nuna" or, more properly, according to the rules of Slovene spelling, "njuna nujna nind┼ża-nuna", which doesn't work quite so well.

  • Ninja kittens sound adorable... but now I'm wondering what would happen if Sister Bertrille were the ninja.

  • The aerodynamics wouldn't work and Sister Bertrille would come crashing down.
    Or did you mean the kittens were still kittens, only ninja-kittens? Well, that's just silly. But it would still require the dual (not to be confused with the duel that would happen if the ninja-kittens turned on each other).

  • What if the kittens were actually ninjas?

  • Slovene for "their necessary nun".

    NOTE: The "their" here (njun- is dual, meaning "belonging to the two of them". Also j is pronounced like the y in yet or boy.

    There are a fairly limited number of applications for this phrase, but I can think of one right off the bat:
    "When lightweight Sister Bertrille, in her wide-brimmed cornette, rescued the two kittens who had climbed into the high tree branches, the Slovenes all agreed she was 'their necessary nun' (njuna nujna nuna)!"
