I agree this was a horrible event, but how is “infamy” relate. Isn’t something infamous because of some sort of bad, evil if you will, influence by a person?
Please excuse the nit-picking.
What? Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
Dean, you know nothing of the Edumund Fitzgerald!
The gales of November came early, man. The gales of November came early. Infamously.
Gitche Gumee never gives up her dead. Infamously.
Superior sings in the rooms of her ice-water mansion, infamously.
Don’t worry, it’s all very infamous.
@Mu – The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
That’s a direct quote from the movie Animal House, where the somewhat dimwitted Bluto is trying to give a rousing speech. The next two lines from onlookers:
“Forget it, he’s rolling.”
Infamous is when you’re more than famous. It’s not just famous, it’s in-famous.
It’s kinda sad that you had to explain that, don’t you think? I thought you couldn’t get out of high school without seeing Animal House–let alone college…
