Bueno, pues molt bé, pues adiós

#buenopuesmoltbépuesadiós has become the 2nd worldwide trending topic on Twitter and people are making memes with this sentence. Here’s why.

After the terrorist attack in Barcelona, journalists from outisde Catalonia have come to our country to report about it. The Catalan government and police realease all their statements and posts in social media accounts in Catalan (our local language), Spanish (the language of the state), and English, and sometimes in French as well.

So here comes the meme

Major Trapero (or Traphero, as some people call him now), chief of the Catalan police, was doing a press conference and was answering the journalists’ questions when a Spanish journalist demanded that he answers only in Spanish. Trapero said “When they ask me in Catalan, I answer in Catalan, when they ask me in Spanish, I answer in Spanish”. The Spanish journalist got mad and threatened to leave the room if he didn’t answer it all in Spanish, and Trapero, very calmly, said “bueno, pues molt bé, pues adiós” which is a sentence mixing both languages that means “well then, very well, bye, then”.

We’ve finally found the perfect answer when they tell us we don’t have the right to speak our language in our own country.

Okay but wow, when Brome suddenly realizes that Felldoh is actually different then who he’d imagined it’s so painful to read. It’s important, because Brome is growing up here; he is no longer star-struck and idol worshiping Felldoh because he saw Felldoh murder other creatures right in front of him and watched his own friends be killed before his very eyes because of an action that Felldoh suggested, and then seemingly seemed uncaring about the situatino (though that is not the truth) and Brome’s shock and loss of innocence is so painful to read. But what’s even more painful is knowing that Felldoh realizes what’s going on and that he is losing a close friend, but his revenge is overpowering his need for friendship so he realizes that he truly is alone right now (because he and Brome and been inseperable up to this point) and o www myyy soul
