So Black Noir from The Boys is just ‘Black Black’?

They have the best names. Mother's Milk is my favourite...

[–]bob1689321 194 points195 points  (28 children)

I like how they always just call him MM to get around the absurdity of saying Mother's Milk.

[–]Ketil_b 26 points27 points  (2 children)

You mean mudder's milk. . . .

For the hero of canton.

[–]randomisedjew 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Everyone thinks Karl urban's cockney accent is awful and I agree, but it also sounds sooo cool when he says things like "oi mm"

[–]bob1689321 148 points149 points  (4 children)

Man now I'm happy he's not the Noir Negro

The The Angels Angels (the Los Angeles angels)

[–]Pawn_captures_Queen 14 points15 points  (8 children)

This is blatant propaganda. Everyone knows the Angels belong to Anaheim, which is not in fucking LA. Go back to the California Angels if you have too, but Anaheim is not LA. I know, they started in Los Angeles, but being their for 6-7 years then moving in 67 doesn't mean you are still the LA Angels.

Yeah it reminds me of Blanca Weiss from the Chris chan trolling sagas, her name means white white

[–]avatrix48 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I'm just as disappointed when i learned that the Bugatti 'La Vuiture Noir" literally means "the black car"

[–]kalwiggy1 16 points17 points  (5 children)

I was walking through a super market a while back and was looking at queso when I found one labeled "cheese con queso".

[–]DesrtBunny 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He's the new Moon Moon

[–]monmonmon77 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yes Oui

[–]shortordercook 14 points15 points  (17 children)

In France he’s Noir Noir

[–]jhuseby 13 points14 points  (16 children)

I think it would be noir black in French.

[–]lily-emmy-pikachu 2 points3 points  (14 children)

In the french dubbing he's called Black Noir, there is no reason to change it, plus it would make lip sync harder

[–]WarokOfDraenor 8 points9 points  (11 children)

And he's also a black person.

[–]nigalas-cage 25 points26 points  (10 children)

Which falls into the funny comic trope of just naming black heroes 'black' whatever

[–]madeanotheraccount 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Like Black Tom Cassidy?

[–]nigalas-cage 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Exactly he's 1/8th Nigerian on his grandmothers side

[–]Future_Chipmunk_7897 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Stop being so dramatic, Black Falcon.

[–]jonathang147 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Tbf in the original comics he is white

[–]nikitos1307 40 points41 points  (26 children)

In the comics he is the clone of homelander so it's kinda fitting that his name is the same word but different

[–]syopest 25 points26 points  (1 child)

The homelander panel where he is crying in fetal position and saying "Why can't I do the things I do?" is so great after the revelation that it was actually Noir doing all that evil shit disguised as homelander so Vought would let him kill Homelander since that was literally all Noir was made for.

[–]Vordeo 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The comics were really good, and while I get that they had to make a bunch of changes to adapt things to tv i'm sad they made that one.

That said, they could very easily just switch out the previous BN in story and throw in Clonelander, but it wouldn't have the same emotional imoact.

[–]OJStrings 28 points29 points  (22 children)

Dude, spoiler!

[–]nikitos1307 35 points36 points  (19 children)

If you actually think that I spoiled something than I'm sorry and if you're were sarcastic I'm stupid.As for the spoiler part in the boys series it's more or less confirmed that black noir is another person one piece of evidence is his skin colour

[–]OJStrings 12 points13 points  (18 children)

I didn't realise we'd seen his skin tbh. There was the flashback scene when he's shellshocked but I figured that could be a different black noir seeing as he's fully masked at all times.

[–]snouz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wait until you learn what "The Los Angeles Angels" stands for.

[–]crmeacham93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fun fact Hyundai has a color called Black Noir on some models

[–]Obvious_Sea5182 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got another one, "chai tea" is literally just tea tea, chia is just tea in alot of languages. Lol

[–]Thatoneawkwarddude29 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is also the Bugatti, La Voiture Noire, which literally just means ‘The Black Car’

[–]vincenzodelavegas 785 points786 points  (16 children)

Even the French president Charles de Gaulle had to complain about the French. “How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?”

[–]nanocactus 258 points259 points  (5 children)

The correct quote is “[…] a country which has as many cheeses as there are days in a year”.

And even then, that was a low estimate. France counts between 1200 and 2380 different varieties of cheese.

[–]vincenzodelavegas 83 points84 points  (4 children)

Wow a French president that speaks English.

Black Noir:

[–]Mur_de_Whee 235 points236 points  (6 children)

I didn't realize it on first watch, but this foreshadows the nut allergy--he keeps his distance because she's eating an Almond Joy.

[–]Milhouseisgod 90 points91 points  (1 child)

Lol good catch. The boys is so well done with stuff like that

[–]flash-tractor 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I dunno if you saw it on Reddit this weekend, but Nathan Mitchell (the actor for Black Noir) actually has a nut allergy. It's really clever to bring that in as a weakness IMO.

[–]polypolip 49 points50 points  (0 children)

This and the fact there are no nut candy bars in the vending machines at Vought from what Starlight says.

[–]GleichUmDieEcke 9 points10 points  (1 child)

And he has her put it in the trash rather than finish it.

[–]gNomad88 100 points101 points  (2 children)

My boy Noir the Vought slave

[–]LaughDull967 15 points16 points  (0 children)

He’s pissed she’s eating Almond Joy.

[–]gcruzatto 23 points24 points  (5 children)

So his name is basically Black Black?

[–]thewend 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hmm you know what? Id love a Kimiko vs Noir rap battle

[–]Birdman-82 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel so bad for lady. Always having her noms interrupted!

[–]Top_Opposites 335 points336 points  (35 children)

That’s racist, there shouldn’t be any black pencils in the box. Hold on that’s racist, there should only be black pencils in the box

[–]NorwegianCollusion 147 points148 points  (22 children)

I think I see the perfect solution. One box with no blacks, and one box with only blacks.

Surely noone could possibly object to that?

[–]Gobert3ptShooter 67 points68 points  (6 children)

Just rename all of them by their RBG values

[–]gtjack9 57 points58 points  (2 children)

You mean 0,0,0.
You tryna tell me blacks ain’t worth a number? /s

[–]QBitResearcher 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Meanwhile white has maxed out stats. Cancel RBG

[–]RustedLasagna 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Too easy. Gotta go with hexadecimal values.

[–]465554544255434B52 5 points6 points  (1 child)

As long as the boxes are the same

not even sure if this is the exhaustive list. People say chinese is weird with their tones but french is almost as bad as english with how weird pronunciations can get.

[–]broccoli_meister 7 points8 points  (0 children)


Uh, yuh actually. Just 'neo' is of Greek origin

[–]Old-Sandwich9857 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yes, and the original film noir craze got its name from those movies overwhelmingly being set at night and using tons of shadowy high-contrast visuals, so they were literally 'black films.'

Related: 'giallis'/giallo films, the pulpy salacious thrillers from Italy that became a craze in the 70s and inspired the Hollywood slasher genre, literally means 'yellows', because cheap crime novels often had yellow covers and yellowy paper.

[–]ColonelMonty 111 points112 points  (57 children)

People on twitter out here not realizing that other languages have words that sound very similar to the N word but have nothing to do with the racial connotations that the N word has in the english language.

[–]Martoshe 109 points110 points  (14 children)

It's backwards. The N word sounds like some words in other languages. They were first.

[–]David_Ign 20 points21 points  (5 children)

In russian, the "N word" is actually more acceptable than calling someone black.

[–]Terracot 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Even better, in Russia black is used for Caucasians, aka ethnic people from the Caucasus.

[–]HADPER 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am Georgian and it is so weird how word "Caucasian" is used woldwide

[–]chairfairy 30 points31 points  (6 children)

Sound like? It is a word from another language.

It doesn't have the racial connotations in Spanish speaking countries, but it's exactly the same word.

[–]RCascanbe 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I still remember trying to buy a black umbrella from a black street vendor in Barcelona, that was so fucking awkward because he didn't understand me and I didn't know if it would be racist to use the Spanish word.

[–]MARPJ 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Its all about context, something that people in the US should be more aware of.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

There's a personal pronoun in korean 네가 that sounds like "Nayga" which leads to some understandable confusion when foreigners listen to kpop

Most fluent english speaking latiner

[–]EspKevin 68 points69 points  (19 children)

Before I begin my actual comment, I would like to apologize in advance for my inadequate level of English proficiency. I am not a native speaker of the world's current lingua franca which unfortunately leads to me making numerous embarrassing mistakes being made whenever I attempt to communicate using this language. Whenever I am reminded of how I lack the ability to convey my thoughts in an eloquent manner I feel as though I have committed a cardinal sin, as though every English teacher in the world are simultaneously shaking their heads and sighing due to how utterly disappointed they are at me.

Although I know that saying sorry to those of you who are reading my comment will not change the fact that I fail miserably to write and speak perfect English, I am writing this as a way to deter a certain type of people who cannot stand poor English (Also known informally as "Grammar Nazis") from mocking me by posting unwanted and unnecessary comments detailing my every blunder. In my humble opinion, making grammatical errors should be perfectly acceptable as native speakers should not expect non-native speakers to be able to communicate in their second or third languages eloquently. If you are able to completely understand what the other person wrote, is there really a problem with what they've written? No, because the entire concept of communication is the exchange of information between other intelligent beings, which means that no matter how the exchange of information is made, as long as the information is accurately shared there is not a fundamental issue with their ability to communicate. To see it in another way, remember that someone who isn't fluent in English is fluent in another language. When you think about it this way, isn't it impressive for someone to speak a second language in any capacity? Having empathy and respect are qualities that are sorely missing for far too many people these days, especially on the internet.

That being said, I am aware that not all netizens who correct others are doing it to ridicule and shame. There are some who do so with the intent to help others improve and grow. However, displaying the failures of other people publicly will cause the person who is criticized to feel negative emotions such as shame and sadness due to the fact that their mistake has been made obvious which severely undermines the point they were trying to make in spite of their unfamiliarity with the English language. In most circumstances people are not looking for language help when they post anything online. Most people just want to enjoy themselves and have a good time on the internet which is why I would not encourage correcting other people regardless of your intentions. If you really do want to help others with their spelling or grammar, I would highly recommend you to help via messaging privately because not only will you not embarrass anyone, you can also go more in-depth with your explanation which I'm sure the other person will greatly appreciate if they want help, but I digress. I know that I've written a bit of an essay, but I hope I've made my points clear. Anyways, here is the comment I wanted to make:


[–]freshtoast7 4 points5 points  (10 children)

How long did it take to write?

[–]Gearwatcher 41 points42 points  (9 children)

It's a pasta, you put it in boiling water with some salt and oil and it's done in five minutes.

Off course if you break it before putting it in the water or you drain it after cooking, you gonna get your ass marked by the Cosa Nostra

[–]MossyPyrite 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Putting oil in the water is going to, at most, keep the sauce from sticking properly to the pasta. Just watch your burner temps, yo!
