Humor inspired by `import this` and _The Trashmen_

Project description

Build Status

Inspired by Python’s import this, The Trashmen, and The Family Guy, theword is a quirky library to answer that eternal question, “What’s the word?”


From any command line:

$ pip install theword

Emulating the Zen of Python

From any command line:

$ python -c "import theword"

_Surfin' Bird_, by The Trashmen

A well a everybody's heard about the bird
Bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word
A well a bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word
A well a bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word
A well a bird, bird, b-bird's the word

General Usage

You can import any of the following:

from theword import TheWord, TheBird, what_is_the_word

Ask the question:

>>> what_is_the_word()
<theword.theword.TheBird object at 0x10f582d90>   # Returns TheBird
>>> what_is_the_word().answer
'[E]verybody knows that the bird is the word!'
>>> print what_is_the_word()  # We overloaded __str__
{"answer": "[E]verybody knows that the bird is the word!", "question": "What's the word?", "id": "The Bird"}

More quirky fun:

>>> what_is_the_word().play()  # Turn on the volume, ensure your WiFi is on
{'artist': 'The Trashmen', 'title': "Surfin' Bird", 'question': "What's the word?", 'released': 1964, 'answer': '[E]verybody knows that the bird is the word!', 'id': 'The Bird'}
>>> what_is_the_word().celebrate() # Be prepared to laugh
{'answer': '[E]verybody knows that the bird is the word!', 'celebrated_on': "FOX's The Family Guy", 'question': "What's the word?", 'id': 'The Bird', 'celebrated_by': 'Seth MacFarlane'}

If you watch all the skits you will recognize this:

Sir, our math shows that the Bird is greater than or equal to the Word!

>>> isinstance(TheBird(), TheWord)
>>> issubclass(TheBird, TheWord)
