Some deep thoughts

I thought I'd better slip back into my more normal format after the foray into
the political scene.


This is the hostess for an Italian afternoon T.V. talk show...

And these are two of America's most
popular afternoon T.V. talk show

To enroll in your nearest language school to learn Italian, call: 800-555-caio

(Who the hell needs to learn Italian, who's gonna listen to what they say?)
Oooops, to myself I meant to say that!!!

Seeing I've already said the wrong thing, let's have a ping at the Kiwi's too.

How to Speak Nuw Zulander.

For Bist Effict, Rid These Out Lowd..

Milburn . . . . . . Capital of Victoria.

Peck . . . . . . . Fill a suit case.

Alternative names.

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also call Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink".

Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of:


Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research.

This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Uh... Well I like the Italian talk show hostess. Was there something else in your post??


Walker said...


The last one capped it off.

Pamela said...

I like the translation for New Zealand

Donna said...

What Italian talk show host, all I saw was Oprah.
I read a great joke off the emails last week, it was written in New Zealander and was histerical. Most of your words were in it.

Puss-in-Boots said...

I'm surprised Pfizer haven't hired you as the publicity guru! That is so clever.

As for your previous post, well said!

Val said...

That Kiwi talk is great. Reminds me of the book my husband had when we met in the U.S. - Let stalk Strine. That gave a pretty good rendition of what Aussies sound like. I hope these English variations don't die out.

Seen the photos before.

Liked the definitions. You might want to Serena's site for more twisted linguistics.

Thanks for the heads up (pun intended) on the forecast of my old age. giggle. guffaw. Snerx.

I don't watch shows, though I'm a fan of Judge Judy. Now if Judge Judy only looked like that Italian lady . . .

I loved the Nuw Zulander words - they are not too far off from redneck slang. Is it possible they discovered American and settled in the U.S. south? I see you added Oprah to the TV hostess gag. I agree, who needs to learn Italian?

Merle said...

Hi Peter ~~ I liked the New Zulland words-- very clever!! Whoever would be able to concentrate if the Italian hostess was interviewing someone?
Take care, Love, Merle.

simo said...

i'm italian and i never seen that show -sigh- because it's not an ITALIAN show. if you see behin the hostess -so difficult i see- you'll notice some spanish words. in fact it's a show of the CHILEAN television, try to goggle. so learn spanish, it's better i think.

Your last paragraph is a ripper, too ... love it !!
Take care, Meow
