It's the "poom" that really got me laughing :). I don't usually look at SLYT posts here, but I'm glad I took the time for this one . . .

Translation of the children's rhyme La Capucine, which somehow makes me like it all the more:

We're dancing The Nasturtium (?!)
There's no bread at our house
There is some at the neighbors'
But it's not for us.
Youuuuuuuu! (This appears to be translated much as it is in the Soulja Boy song.)

(I'm assuming there's some other interpretations of nasturtium, but I like it as it is anyway.)

Subsequent verses go on to say there's no wine at our house (natch, c'est France), there's no fire at our house, and then the last verse is At the neighbor's house they are crying, at ours we are laughing.

Voici "Dansons la capucine",sans "POOM" - also a side by side translation of the words here.

Yes, a brilliant, perfectly coordinated soundtrack can transmute a video from being merely amusing into something profoundly hilarious, able to reduce the behavior of perfectly mature adult onlookers to the level of a pre-schoolers.

Also: POOM!

La pendule fait tic-tac-tic-tic
Les oiseaux du lac pic-pac-pic-pic
Glou-glou-glou font tous les dindons
Et la jolie cloche ding-dang-dong

Mais... poum!
Quand notre coeur fait poum
Tout avec lui dit poum
Et c'est l'amour qui s'éveille

Poum!
Il chante «Love in Bloom»
Au rythme de ce poum
Qui redit poum à l'oreille

Yes, that's when I started laughing uncontrollably. I have now watched this so many times I've lost count. Poom!

Oh man today is the day I officially become cat lady because I am sending this to everybody I know

I saw this a while ago. Had a good giggle about it. Then went to do other stuff. Then went back and watched it again. Then sent the link to my girlfriend (we both have cats). Then we showed it to friends... before we know it we've all been -maybe for a couple months now- sending each other stills from the video, and greeting each other with "coucou les copains".

and just the other day my cat B went *poom* on his little sister, cat A. I almost collapsed laughing.

My boyfriend and I are now involved in a game of Poom! since I sent that link to him last night. I got the last one in just before I fled the house this morning but I am going to have to be on my toes when I get home because he's going to be waiting to get me back, I just know it.

Mr SuperMedusa & I have 2 cats, but as a rule he is not so into the LOLCatz and cute vids as I am. I showed him this last night and it killed him and he watched it twice in a row and today I can't really stop singing it to Herbert and gently bopping him on the nose "Poom!"

while I was in the bathroom performing my daily ablutions, i heard my phone go bvvt bvvt.


I just checked to see what the message was.

We used to play a game with one of my dogs called "Get Your Face" where we would try to get his face. Now we are playing "poom" which is the same game except we use fake French when we get his face.

It's settled: *poom* is the new *boop* at chez nosy.
