Yesterday I got into a lively discussion with another tumblr user on the proper interpretation of one of Bucky's lines in Captain America: The First Avenger.

The line in question goes like this:

ā€œHell, no. That little guy from Brooklyn who was too dumb not to run away from a fight, Iā€™m following him.ā€




The original poster thought this line was illogical, while I thought it made perfect sense.

This engendered a lot of back and forth debate!

If anyone's interested in reading it, the resulting tumblr thread is here, and my follow-up post with more technical linguistic-y discussion is here.

Where my linguists at? [livejournal.com profile] khalulu ... [livejournal.com profile] shiftylinguini ... [livejournal.com profile] pauraque ... I'm sure I'm missing some :)
