Well, it seems like I proved my examiner wrong. Today I defended my BA thesis on puns in the Brick getting the highest grade.

I’d like to thank not only Victor Hugo but also Grantaire. No, but seriously, I would never have found some of these puns if not for the dedicated Brick dissectors of tumblr, so here I’d like to thank: 

There were probably some other puns that I first found thanks to a tumblr post but then forgot about it (sorryyyy). And if anyone wants to read the thing, it’s here, but unfortunately, it’s in French only! It’s nothing groundbreaking, just linguistic examining of wordplay, but there you go.

Hey, congratulations on the thesis!  Glad to hear how it came out, thank you for linking it. :D

Look what oilan made!!!! This is the final version of the project I commissioned from her :) I’m in love :)))) 
It all comes from a conversation she and I had a while ago where I was talking about why I liked Feuilly and Combeferre so much, and, after listing off a lot of other things, pointed out that together they basically make the ideal Soviet types — the worker and the intellectual. “All you need is Bahorel to be the peasant!” And then when she opened commissions — and she was also interested in this project, I knew what to ask for :) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! :)
So this piece is called “Heroes of Socialism” I guess :) 
The Russian quote is from a Soviet poster I actually have in my apartment — the English and French are (slightly rephrased) translations. Thanks to flo-nelja for suggesting the French version we went with :)
Aah, I’m so happy. :)
