Paranoia Agent


I just finished watching the anime series "Paranoia Agent." I'm no expert on anime, but I really loved this series. Basically, the story was about how a kid with gold inline skates and a broken bat appears to people when their lives are backed into a corner and he whacks them over the head. Soon he is known as Little Slugger. Is he a demon or a holy warrior? And what is the connection between Little Slugger and the cartoon dog Maroni? Great animation and great storytelling even if it got really trippy at times. Actually, the trippiness is a part of the series' appeal. I even got a bit choked up at the end when the detective's wife died.

Malaprops

I came across these malaprops recently from writing students.



He was guilty of committing a Mister Meaner.


He put his hand around her waste.



Before entering the convenience store, he slipped panty hoes over his head.
