I don't think so! I'd rather say:

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 logic. 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!

I'd rather say national (or home, domestic...) produce.
And if you want, you can be more specific by using fructiferous produce.

Hi Khalid Sami!
The first one might be a corbel (possibly being a type of cornice). Anyway, just take a look at this page, browse through their products and decide what name you like best.

# 11: James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Hey Articulate Dreamer, 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...


Baby Joyce


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.



Fun fact: According to Urban Dictionary, moocows are different from regular cows.


#12: “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.”
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

And also found this:

John 4:38 (1611 King James Bible)
I sent you to reape that, whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and yee are entred into their labours.
