Completely Off Topic - But If You Want A Laugh

Sorry for going off-topic but I thought this video was so funny I just had to share it.

It's a Belgian talk-show about hospital operations gone wrong & the guy being interviewed was unfortunate enough to have had his testicles removed by mistake.

Make sure you watch it with the sound turned up - even although it's in Flemish!

Too funny. I wonder if that TV interviewer is still employed?

Being serious when you're supposed to. . .

That is hilarious...how we can all get a kick out of something not knowing a word, but knowing just what it's about is great! Just a quick aside: my husband was in a Belgian hospital last summer and did have surgery...I can't wait to show him this! He will be a combination of relieved and cracking up!!!

Oh my - that is hysterical, thanks! I have been in those situations also and it is hard to keep a straight face once you've lost it. I can't believe no one in the audience was laughing either.

Yeah for those of us who laugh at inappropriate times. A few weeks ago I was at my Grandfather's funeral and my mother had chosen a hymn for everyone to sing. Well, I was between my parents and we are for sure the worst singers ever and we all started laughing to the point that we couldn't sing. Luckily the entire church was singing, but it was horribly embarassing. When the laughter gets to you, though, there is no stopping it!

I wish I understood Flemish, but I'm almost sure at the end I understood the interviewer to say, "oh, testicles. I thought you said tentacles."

How funny was that! I'm still laughing!

Reminds me of the time I took my young 2 year nephew to Christmas Eve service. It was very quiet except for the minister speaking. My nephew proceeded to drop all his candies on the floor underneath the pew. I told him to leave them or now and he spent the duration of the Christmas service looking down at them and pointing to them. I could not stop laughing, and I laugh now to think of it. You had to be there.

Just a hunch, but I'd bet most (our favorie Floridian excepted) of the posters on this are female. Maybe because the guys are having difficulty typing as they sit here with jaw dropped, eyes bulging and both hands cupped over... well, guess where?
