Family Guy - Check Out This Part

Not sure how long they will leave this up. If you don't want to watch the whole thing get it to about 30:30 seconds, Peter is in the board room and there's a big band playing. I love this vid!

Only available for the US... Pff...

I remember falling on floor laughing when I saw the original of that as a kid. By the way, the original uses the same recording, but Jerry Lewis is MUCH funnier than the animated character -- the animated character is kind of stone-faced. The original's on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MA3406YJUg.

Has this word got the same negative meaning than in French? It's interesting to read from you then Mike! :o)

Yes we posted this some time ago. I couldn't find it yet, but from the memory I have of it, the opinions were quite more positive!

As for me, I remember cracking up in front of it! (sorry! ;o)

Hey Marie,
Thank you jen for making what I said clear, the term "Ridiculous" in english is not negative! It can be, but it is really context sensitive. What I really meant was super funny. So I used just the term Ridiculous which translates to super funny in this context! language can be so varied!

Thanks Mike (and Jen!) I feel better now! And I learned something!
Yes languages have an infinity of levels, wrong sense, tricks... I love it! A never ending disovery! :o)

Thank you Mike P, Tom and Tony M. for these funny postings ---I watched them all!

Mike P., the guy mouthing the words to the video you linked was really funny!!--Do you know who the guy in the vido IS?--just wondering!
I loved his reaction to and after the drum solos! :)

And Marie-Noelle, I think the word ridiculous in the English language has now taken on many more meanings than the original found in dictionary .com.---I think Mike Pinto meant it more to be used as "funny"????--Not Sure...Marie-Noelle...What can only be seen in the US? the YouTube videos linked?...or "The Family Guy" Episode on Hulu?
