The king and his men give Hop Frog his nickname because he could only move with a leap and a wiggle of a movement. The king chooses him as his jester and always makes fun of him. Hop Frog does not like to drink alcohol, but the king forces him anyway. The king even makes a toast to friends Hop Frog is no longer acquainted with anymore: “Come here Hop Frog, swallow this bumper to the health of your absent friends” (Poe). After Hop Frog drinks the wine, his eyes fill with tears because of the king’s rude comment.
With all of Hop-frog’s disabilities, drinking alcohol is real tough on him, so in other words, alcohol is just a bad idea. For a cheap laugh, the king forces Hop-frog to consume wine. “Come, drink! The wine will brighten your wits.” Obviously, the King is just trying to take advantage of Hop-frog. Back in those days, it was not un common for people to laugh at dwarfs but the King and his followers take it to a whole new level.
Mr. Ewell’s wrongdoings lead to the death of Tom Robinson, and later he himself was killed for his unjust actions. The mockingbird was symbolic of Tom’s true, pure heart, and his death was because of nothing but the inequities within society. Mr. Ewell’s sin caused sorrow and horror in Scout’s life, but it also lead to her realization that discrimination was wrong, something that Atticus wished for her to know all along. Further along in the story, Scout’s growth is proved when Atticus suggests sending Boo Radley to trial for killing Bob Ewell. Scout says, “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (276).
After proving himself a marksman Lester wins a couple of stuffed animals that take first priority over his more deviant adult side. When his cabin burns to the ground one of the first things he grabs is the stuffed animals leaving his source of sex to burn with the home. Along with the rescue he also treats them like royalty in the cave by ensuring that they stay dry and in a safe place. Another instance is the first time he is given a sexual comment. While talking with a woman in the junkyard she makes a sexual joke changing "Just let me owe ye," with, "Say you want
He took advantage of Hop-Frogs time and any potential he had. In addition Hop-Frog was also justified from the fact that he was a joke his whole life. The King loved when he quivered and squirmed, forcing him to do things he did not want to do: “But the King loved his piratical jokes, and took pleasure in forcing Hop-Frog to drink…” (Poe 2). The King and his ministers all laughed and took in pleasure when Hop-Frog had tears in his eyes from the mercenary act the King performed. Making a joke from his sadness.
This characteristic is also seen when SpongeBob volunteers to find King Neptune’s crown in order to save Mr. Krabs, the crustacean who overlooked SpongeBob’s clear qualifications for the manager position. Additionally, SpongeBob does not meet the male norm in that he is (comically so) excitable. In one specific scene, SpongeBob and Patrick find themselves in trouble when they throw a spontaneous bubble party in a bar full of thugs. When the biggest and baddest ruffian sees a bubble float into the bar, he lines up the patrons in order to find the “bubble-blowing babies” because anyone who blows bubbles “ain’t a real man.” Here again, pressure to fit a specific mold is demonstrated in this film. Of course this kind of behavior/treatment of behavior is not partial to this theatrical scenario.
The ransom red chief is a low level comedy because of the crude humor. The boy being mischievous and zany caused a lot of low comedy with the easy to follow storyline. “Red was sitting on bill’s chest with one hand holding his hair and the other a knife, a shriek came from old bill.” The boy was so small yet fierce that the reader wouldn't expect Sam to be so calm and handle everything like it is routine. “Bill let out a shriek.” Shows how the crazy situation made humorous with Bills over-the-top reaction. The crude humor used conveys that this was a low comedy.
Clowns are often used as entertainment during parties and kids shows but when you are talking about Stephen King’s It movie then that’s a different story altogether. Bill Skarsgard will be taking on the role of Pennywise the Dancing Clown This kind of clown is not the birthday party variety kind. When talking about Stephen King’s It movie, Skarsgard says that the character itself is inhumane. “It’s such an extreme character”, says the actor. He goes on to say that it’s way above sociopath level.
Odysseus, who knew the wine would make the Cyclops sleepy, offered him “liquor to wash down your scraps of men” (256). This creative use of the wine made the Cyclops sleepy, and it gave Odysseus’ crew a chance to blind the Cyclops. Another demonstration of his guile is when he tricked the Cyclops who “stroked each ram” by belting himself onto the underside of the ram. If it wasn’t for Odysseus’ quick thinking, the men would’ve been eaten by the blind Cyclops, who checked every animate before letting it exit the cave. When I was younger, I always let my dog sleep on my bed at night; therefore, I would always blame the dog when I wet the bed.
Everyone knows Gordie as a small and a very sad kid, but when he gets closer and more comfortable to the gang, he speaks up for himself and really show them what he is capable of. After the gang was formed, Gordie’s job at the sewage outlet was to grab the cat carcass with a long wooden hook to use it as bait for the rat trap. This action serves as his initiation into the gang in which he is forced to prove himself as a worthy member. That’s where the boys found out that Gordie wasn’t useless at all, he is actually quite strong as well. “Without hesitating, Gordie plunged the wooden hook hard into the centre of the cat’s stomach.
On the following panels, The Monkey King of Flower-Fruit Mountain is eager to enter in the dinner party in heaven. Before entering the party he is stopped by the guard telling the Monkey King that he may not enter because he is a monkey without shoes, to which the
He is a victum of extrem violence because of his skin colour. The boss abuses Crooks by taking his anger out on him when he’s mad. “An’ he give the stable buck hell, too.” The boss abhors “the stable buck cripple” therefoer Crooks is used as a punching bag. Yet Candy is certain that he dosen’t mind this treatment since “the stable buck’s a niggar.” Another significant example of violent behaviour aimed towards Crooks is when they “let the nigger in” to the Bunk house at Christmas. The only reason why the boss approved this was so Crooks could provide entertainment and amusment for the intoxicated raqnch workers.
On the other hand, in LOTF, readers see how the boys are adjusting quite nicely to their environment, then there is a subtle change in the ways the boys act. Not only did the lack of independance force them to descend into a savage state, but the destruction of a symbol that displayed intelligence and order lead to the collapse of civilization. “Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy’s head. Piggy’s glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks” (Golding 71). Piggy’s glasses exemplified intelligence because Piggy used his glasses to create the fire that was needed for the rescue of the boys on the island.
