Now...the cow REALLY went to the swamp!
I think I couldn't choose a more appropriated expression for today! We are screwed up...we lost Millôr Fernandes. He died yesterday night and for sure it's a huge loss. To understand it better I'll quote the reporter Zuenir Ventura (Millôr's friend) in an interview this morning to Globonews: "It's really a loss. The loss of a genius. It is a loss for journalism, for the theater, to literature, because Millôr did all that!" It's true...besides being a very talented writer, Millôr also developed other careers such as a journalist, playwright, translator and humorist. He was an expert in Shakespeare and translated a lot of his plays into Portuguese. We lost a multi-talented man who was able not only to do many tasks but also to include humor in all these tasks, made them light but at the same time punctual.
By the way, could you possibly know what these expressions mean?
- To whirl the old woman from Bahia.
- If it gives cake, I take my body out.
- With me is bread, bread; cheese, cheese!
- Carioca of the egg's yolk!
- He wrote, didn't read, the stick ate!
