One of the great joys of living with my children as they have approached their “grown-up” years is allowing them to introduce me to pop culture, which I would otherwise be even more oblivious to than I am now. I am not much of a television watcher, but after months (or in some cases, years) of hearing my kids talk and laugh about shows I have never seen, I have been known to break down and watch them. Usually, I love them, too. The Office comes to mind. And more recently, Modern Family. Southpark was an exception- just never appreciated that one the way I did the Simpsons. Flight of the Conchords was one that when I finally sat down and watched, I immediately was a fan. Unfortunately, the show was short-lived, but we do have them on DVD for our continuing viewing enjoyment. And you tube allows me to re-visit some of my favorite performances by those two crazy Kiwis whenever I need a laugh. We watched this one soon after we learned of our transfer to Paris. It still tickles me.
I hope you like it, too. But my sister didn’t, so you might not. But try it anyway.
I’m so psyched that there is a pool at my new gym, affording me the opportunity to ask that age-old question from every French 1 textbook, “Ou est la piscine?”. Finally.

What do you mean, i didn’t like it? I loved FOC way before you saw that clip! I even made the girls stay for the credits of a kids’ movie to see if one of the songs was by the two; it was!! xoxox
I didn’t mean you don’t like FOC- but I thought you told me you didn’t think that particular song was funny. Didn’t mean to malign you!
Foo de fah fah!
it is only a little alarming that my conversations in french are similar to a few kiwis with the most amazing sideburns ever! Gerard is one of my favorite words in french. Not so good in Italy, but in France, eau la la
