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



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






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.



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



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


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.



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.
