Only depending on how poetic you're feeling or on how you want the line to (re)sound.
By the way, what's the original version?

OK, my view is as follows:
It think that Lent's (the christian fasting thing) day is somehow (by magic!) related to the day at which Carnival day is set in a given year, by christian
. So John says "they love to give up chocolate temporarily" as a way to link (or is it confuse?) the ideas of fasting for religious purposes (Quaresma [Lent]) and fasting for tiny bikini fitness purposes (Carnaval [Carnival]).
By the way, thank you for the link to the show's playlist. John Oliver's ffunny!

: James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
, what a coincidence... I've just finished reading it today! As was expected I loved it, it's a magnificent piece of literary art!
Yes, that's a moocow by the house. It's not coming down the road now, but just give it time and it will...
This is a photograph of my father meeting a cow. It was taken in 1916 which was coincidentally the year that Joyce published Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
The quotation is the first sentence of Portrait.

, moocows are different from regular cows.
“Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.”
