The more Jules Verne I read, the more apparent it becomes that he’s basically whatever you’d call a weeaboo but for the US and UK

 

limeadeislife:

The UK version is “teaboo”, idk about the US one yet

 

kata4a:

freeaboo

 

dagny-hashtaggart:

This line of conversation is leading my brain into generating puns on “weeaboo” with its spare processor cycles.

So far I think my favorite is “Shiaboo” for a foreigner obsessed with Iran and Persian culture.

 

jadagul:

I hadn’t realized that Jules Verne wasn’t British. Which I guess is your point.

 

dagny-hashtaggart:

#also I agree with jadagul#(holy shit he’s French)

rustingbridges

yeah I did not know he was french

I guess I thought this was common knowledge? I mean the name “Jules Verne” doesn’t exactly scream “brit” to me, though I guess he could’ve been an Englishman from a French family or something.

 

jadagul:

The name “Jules Verne” screams “Brit” to me, entirely because it sounds like the name of the science fiction author named Jules Verne, who is obviously British. :P

Partly this, but also “Jules” feels pretty British to me. That might just be Julian Bashir’s fault, though.
