Today I realized that Pepe (or Pep, in Guardiola's case) is just a diminutive of Giuseppe, which is Italian for José.

I’ve talked about it in this thread before and while that is one of the theories there is another. It’s because Jose is the “father” of Jesus, and Pepe is a shortened form for the Latin “Pater Putativo” (putative father), which is sorta highlighting a cuckold aspect of Joseph and Mary and makes the fact that reddit Pepe culture is so obsessed with cucks a funny coincidence.

Also, upthread someone mentioned that “here comes the warm jets” by Eno is a golden showers piss play reference. Listening to Baby’s on fire and am now relealizing maybe the same. I had never really paid super close attention to the lyrics and had assumed it was just surrealistic imagery in a photo shoot. But now, the baby on fire is a porn subject who is hot as in horny and aroused and the water they need thrown on them is piss. And “look what they’ve been reduced to” is just dom dirty talk. Like, “you dirty piss pig. You like that.” And then that explains why there is a photo shoot.

Actually more specifically,
“You said you were hot stuff
And that’s what the baby’s been reduced to”

Is more like “oh you thought you were so hoity toity and important, but look how easily I turned you into my little toilet.”
Also, “I’ll be your flotsam,” telling the laughing boys gathered around to “lend some assistance to the object.”

That's a really ambitious and strange interpretation of a song and songwriter that are both really tough to interpret. For me, it doesn't hold up, for two major reasons:

1. The song doesn't say that there is water the porn subject "need(s) thrown on them," so it can't be piss. The lyric is "baby's on fire / better throw her in the water." This links up with the mention of "flotsam" later, which it might not be obvious is "the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on or washed up by the sea." So "if you'll be my flotsam / I could be half the man I used to" I interpret to be the male pornographer/agent/publisher(?) saying that once Baby's career is washed up, he'll be washed up too, "half the man he used to."

2. "Here Come the Warm Jets" is the title of a totally different song on the album. Well, that fact and this:

Eno has stated that the term refers to the guitars: “The title Warm Jets came from the guitar sound on the track of that name, which I described on the track sheet as ‘warm jet guitar’, because it sounded like a tuned jet.” However, there are rumors that it has a more sexual meaning – that is, that it refers to a “golden shower”, especially since the cover art includes a playing card with a picture of a woman urinating on it.


For me, the strongest metaphor in the song is one that links the eventual burnout of a hot porn model to the eventual transition of a thing on fire into ashes. "They said you were hot stuff / And that's what baby's been reduced to" is one of the closer articulations of that theme. Then there's the weird stanzas about Juanita and Juan who somehow make a profit off of the ashes of burned cigarettes. So in the extended metaphor, the ashes they sell link up with the photographs (the ash leftovers of a burned out human model). I can't make too much more of the lyrics, but then Eno liked very much to claim that he, like Stipe, just made up words that sounded good or weird together or were imagistic in a way that he liked.

I came across this dondon as well when someone made us say something like Happy Birthday for the pic and the resulting horrible pic with everyone’s mouth open.

i never connected it either. just figured people said cheese because they'd always said cheese and it's just one of those things that's passed down for decades (centuries?)

In just 17 years, the first photograph that includes human beings will turn 200 years old. So we'll need to stick with "decades" for now.

well, photography of human beings has now spanned 3 centuries (the 19th, 20th, and 21st) so i think 'centuries,' while perhaps not correct in terms of length, is proper

There's a Wiki on "Say Cheese" that has a list of the things some other countries/languages say for the same purpose:

That wiki led me to the dondon that paneer is the Hindi/Urdu word for "cheese" so paneer cheese is cheese cheese like "chai tea" is tea tea
