Comedy section of brain: laughs
penguins don't have breasts
Geek section of brain: Starts thinking about Tux in ways never before intended
Linguist section of brain: Notices use of 'right' as an intensifier, is curious about it as I tend to only come across it in Yorkshire dialect. T'other third says it all the time, and he's from Oop North.
Thanks for the giggle :-D

"Right" as an intensifier also lives on in (the stereotype of?) the American West, as in "That's right kindly of you, neighbor". Pop-cultrure wise I think it also is a part of Mike Myers Scottish "Fat Bastard" character...

Interesting observation about laguange you make. I haven't noticed exactly that phenomenon in Swedish, but others, that signal that things are happening with the laguange. Irregular verb inflexions are gradually replaced by regular . Object forms of pronomina are dropped e g I gave him the book -> I gave he the book . Etc etc.There are several linguists that have written about the gradual changes (I say deterioration) in Swedish most of them seem to approve, maybe from political correctness . Eventually, I fear, few young Swedes will understand what I say.Regards,Bjf6rn Bergstrf6m
