Well, actually Val is Valkyrie, one of the Defenders. Great semi-Thor knockoff.

And I still don't get the joke

You need to be a Pokemon fan to get the joke. Flattened cat+no nose=Meowth.

Val is a Sluggy Freelance character first, an abbreviation for "value" second, and the Vulcan equivalent of HAL third.

Hey Valium, how do you like "CV"?

Funny, I think "CV" and my mind immediately mutates it into "SeaBee," those little yellow shuttlecraft from the Trek movies.

@Zeke: CV is fine, provided it isn't used possessively.

This is, apparently, a joke which doesn't lend itself easily to the shortcut of a quick Googling.

CV = curriculum vitae = resume (sorta) = story of your life

I thought Sa'ar's joke was that the story of Valium's life was "used possessively."

Nate, you've reminded me of a somewhat different Latin phrase: "sum quod eris", found on tombstones. It means "I am what you will be."

What? Dead? Slighty amusing. For Latin anyway.

It has many levels, some undiscovered.

I forget the Latin for it, but "never speak ill of the dead" is a good thing to say if someone is giving you a hard time about your ill-advised drinking the night before.

I bet it was even used by hungover Romans. Or maybe the slaves on barf cleanup duty. *shudder*
