This is hilarious, in any language.....today my boss at one of the hospitals where I work called me over to show me this (the Polish interpreter had shown it to her, and her reaction was, "I gotta show Marie that!!") This is the funniest thing I've seen all week.
This is a case study in why you should strive to cultivate a little humility - worst case scenario, you might end up an international laughing stock. (If you don't speak English and can't sing, don't do Mariah Carey in public). The exchange, which is subtitled, is taken from Bulgaria's "Music Idol":
And now, Mariah Carey's reaction:
This girl became a big hit in Bulgaria, after taking some English lessons:
At least she has a healthy self-esteem!
This brings up an interesting question in my mind, as my sons are currently watching an obese person fall off of huge rubber balls into mud ("Wipe Out"). Is it morally wrong to laugh at people who go on national TV and make fools of themselves?? I mean, some of these individuals aren't really rocket-scientist material, but really seem to think they're the cat's pajamas. I rarely catch any TV, but when my attention is called to it I invariably notice the high opinions folks tend to have of themselves - without the goods to back it up. Funny stuff.
