Our First Blogging Assignment Is…

September 16, 2013

Welcome to English Language Pages everyone!

If you’re not familiar or you’re apprehensive about what to expect over the coming weeks, take a moment to read through some of the posts from last semester.

We’ll keep it kind of simple for the first week as many of us are just starting off here and we need to get used to using the website.

Here is your assignment:

  1. Find an interesting or funny picture on the internet and post a link to it here.
  2. Write a PARAGRAPH describing this subject or telling a story.
  3. Read other people’s posts and make comments.
  4. Have fun


Here are a couple of example pictures, including a topic sentence:

– Yesterday was one of the worst days of my life.




Love Triangle?


-Tom was falling deeper in love with his girlfriend, but he sensed that something about their relationship was not right.



In case some of you are having trouble posting pictures, it might be handiest to follow these instructions:

If you right click on the image it should say ‘view image’ or something like that. It will take you to a page where only the image is shown. If you copy that url and paste it here, I’m sure that will be fine – just be sure that it works before posting the comment :)

Here’s an example:

But if I right click on the image and then select view image I get this page:

Have fun!

    The first picture is a little bit sad and absurd. How does a dog feel and think about life! The second one is shocking. What a drastic behavior is!

    In my home town, I bring up a cat, and her name is princess.
    She is very charming and winsome to anyone normally.
    But she gets angry when I cut her claws. At that time, her expression is very horror.
    So I think that all of cats get angry when their master try to cut their claws.
    Some day my friend Jun Hyuk posted his cat’s picture on facebook.
    In the picutre, his sister tried to cut cat’s claws.
    I was relly surprised. Because the cat’s expression was not horror but surprise and laughable. So I feel this picture very funny because of the cat’s cute expression.

    This picture shows talking between Jim Carrey and a young child. The child says that his teacher tells her inner beauty is more important than appearance. But JIm Carrey tell him that is what ugly people say. I think the inner beauty is important but on the other hand I sympathize the word Jim Carrey says a little bit. It is paradoxical but have a funny point.

      I’ve saw this picture before. At the first time I saw this picture, my thought was like “Fair point well made”. But I totally agree with you about the inner beauty.

    • September 23, 2013 7:38 pm

      I think he has his feet on the ground. It is obviously a joke, but it can hurt some people. All the same, it has a funny point.

    • September 24, 2013 10:19 pm

      I think the hand’s pose was really cute. And that has real funny point as you mention.

    – Towels mean love and respect for them.
    Younger sister serves the red carpet made of towels to her elder brother for appreciating about giving up his computer for her. There is only one computer in most of houses. So most siblings are usually bickering over computer. But the sister behave differently. She didn’t fight with her elder brother. I think she is wise. She considered his feeling. Then she shows him love and respect by towels. Love is for computer and him. Respect is only for him.

      Your story of one picture is great. When I watched the picture you upload, I could just guess that there was some towels meaning of red carpet. However, after reading your story, I could see the picture more pleasant, and the story was familiar with people’s routine life so that I read it with sympathy.

    – Twin cats are quarreling to take power.
    A mother cat gave birth to twin cats. As the twins grown up little by little, they perceived importance of power in animals’ world. In animals’ world, ranks are crucial to keep in order. There was no brotherhood between the twin cats. Instead, there were some tensions to get recognition as a firstborn to take power. trivial smacks for perceiving and respecting to oneself were unceasing. Finally, a thing was happened. The big battle for take a crown of firstborn started. The twins attacked each other with jumping, beating and clawing. there was no mercy of brotherhood. Who will be the one to take the destiny? Take a guess!

      Before i read your story, i thought that they are dancing or playing. But now, i think your story is right. In this time, i realize again people have various viewpoints. It is really interesting!

    There are two girls in the picture.I think they are sisters or friends.
    They went to the beach. We usuaslly dig the sand and put our body into the sandhole just for fun.I also did it with my friends at the Haewoondae beach in Busan on summr vacation.
    The two girls did it just for fun. But There’s coming something huge.
    What will happen after 1second?It’ll take time for them to get out of the sands.
    It could be not only funny but dangerous.
    However I believe that moment was made just for laughs. Maybe that huge wave is a trick.

    (Because there are so many other photos on the site, I downloaded and reuploaded it on my own blog. I disclosed the source just in case ^-^)

      When i was a little girl I liked to go to the beach. But instead of just lying on the sand or playing with the sand, i liked to swim and dig out some shellfish. This picture reminded me of my old days at the beach.

    – A man floating in the air?
    In the picture, it looks like there is a man standing in midair. But in the real life floating in the air can’t be happened. When you look into the picture carefully, you will figure it out that a stain in the road is not a shadow of the man, it is just water mark remained right in front of him.

    • September 23, 2013 12:23 pm

      What a brilliant idea! It is really exciting. I couldn’t think it is causing an optical illusion. If i hit on a bright idea in road, i’ll try this!

      Wow! I’m really surprised at the picture before reading your explanation.
      How marvelous the picture is ! And the men’s expression is so funny.
      If I have a chance, I want to take that picture too.

    This kakao talk emoticon exactly matches me last three days. It was Korea’s big holiday chuseok and i went to my grandmother’s house in gangwondo. I helped them make songpeon and actually besides that i literally ate and slept, watched TV and take a nap. It was so good that i could take a rest and do nothing. Also my family visited my brother who serves his military service near my gramdmother’s house. There we bought tons of food for him like chicken, pizza, melon and etc. To tell you the truth it was me who was the happiest to have them. Anyway i really had a great holiday with my favorite food always near me. And tomorrow i am going back to my everyday life…!

    that’s turtle hamburger…… it’s absolutely photoshopped picture in a funny way.
    there are lettuce,a slice of tomato,cheese mixed with turtle whole body.
    what comes into your mind?? just fun?

    however, i was deeply sadden after watching this photo.
    it’s not that i am a animal lover as well as a vegetarian but this is arrogant.
    ‘the turtle hamburger’ shows well arrogance and hypocricy that human being have.

      I’m not a vegetarian neither, but I feel so sorry for a turtle. We are just watching this picture for fun. At the same time, however, it also means that we are not respecting animals deep inside. I feel so sorry for them.

    • September 23, 2013 10:46 pm

      What a poor turtle! I was surprised when I first saw this picture because it was too big and the turtle looked a bit creepy. However, I’m feeling shame for him.

    In the picture, you can see some girls in the class. But there is a little odd thing. It is some girls wear same clothes in the same class. That situation is funny to other person, but it is very annoyed situation to some girls in the picture. If I am a girl in the picture, I greatly regret that my choice.

      Oh my god… This fashion came in several years ago. If the situation was happened to me, i am sensible to shame too.
      Fashion trend is important. But unconditional newfangledness will return triteness.

    Teddy bear can be unhappy gift to a girlfriend if she breaks up with her boyfriend. A woman tried to throw away a teddy bear that she had received by her ex-boyfriend. At first she planed to just dump the teddy bear without any disposal, but a janitor of the building warned her to throw out it in garbage bag. After returning home, she tried to cram the byproduct of parting into a garbage bag, but the teddy bear was not pushover. Despite of her struggling to remove it, the teddy bear was sticking its head out of the garbage bag with innocent look.

    -How fast it is!
    In the picture, you can see two people. The woman gives a box to the man. If you observe picture for one more second, you can find out the woman is in Asia and the man is in Oceania. Actually their substantive distance is very long. It will take long time to send and receive stuff.
    But this advertisement shows that “FedEx” is very fast delivery system, like delivering between neighborhood. That is why this advertisement picture gives me interest.

      I get the idea of this picture after reading your post. This is definitely interesting. I think more and more advertisements are becoming more creative, which is good. I want to give a round of applause to the guys created this advertisement.

      I am very interested with this picture too.
      The advertisement is very extraordinary.
      So I think FedEx yields a good return.

    -Real Men…
    In this picture, you can see many soldiers (or police officers), and two women with short skirts. I can easily say that the guys are in their duty times. But they are staring at those 2 girls, not focusing. This is so funny because it shows how men react. They are REAL MEN before they are being soldiers or police officers. So I named this picture Real Men.

    Yesterday, I overslept for a long time.
    So warm and soft, I did not want to get up.
    Soon my mother woke me up for breakfirst.
    And then I could not see anything. The world was all black.
    Being half awake, I was embarrassed.
    But I notice soon that my dog was on my face.

    In this picture, there are several different kinds of animals. They all look very different but actually they were born from the one mother – the sour dough. They might think that they have special shapes which is true, but they might not recognize that their colour is same for everybody. They will soon recognize that they are twins – watching more of breads baked and being packaged. However, they might don’t even know that they were made to be eaten and what the bread is.

      It is interesting to me that you impersonate breads. I want to know the shop in picture. I want to eat the bread shaped turtle!

    Singer IU will be back on October 7. I felt the singer’s chage was really big.
    Her image is no girl. Previous image is lovely, pure and cute girl. She has very intense eye, pose and feminine beauty. I ‘m looking forward her album and voice. I love her voice. Because her voice is really soft and beautiful. Especially it is very harmonious with guitar sound. I think this album is really fascinating.

    A famous female talent ‘Clara’ threw the first ball in the opening game of the pro baseball season. At the time, Clara’s clothes were source of controversy. Kim shin young using it caricatured. She is very funny and so cute.

      Wow~ I saw this picture in article.
      Kim shin young’s parody is so funny.
      I think she wants to satirize the women’s costume at opening of a baseball game.
      And I think she satirizes a Crayon Pop’s costume too.

      She was emphasized her hips too much! That is very funny and I think she is sexier than Clara! lol

    In this picture, you can see a very cute baby who is dancing with the baby sculpture.
    And, the statue looks similar with her, so it makes you have more fun.
    Furthermore, looking at her face, She just seems to feel very comfortable and enjoyable the moment.
    So that makes you even seem pure and peaceful.
    I think, the photo which takes lovely baby has the power to make us happy.^^

    In this picture, we can see one’s face with wearing a mask. I don’t know whether the person is man or woman.In fact, this pictue is a poster of a flim called ‘The man who laughs.’When I first say this picture, I was a little scared of the person’s smile. And also I agree ith the news title that many people work with a syndrome of smile mask. In my experience, I would pretend myself to smile to other people that I was pleased even though I feel bad. Therefore through the picture, I think to socialize with others we might hind our real emotion, and just smile that with some fake masks. So called “Poker face”.
