It's a clam, in case you're wondering.

From the French cooking show Des Kiwis et des Hommes, a highly educational segment on how to prepare palourde royal. Kinda sorta NSFW.

I am now experiencing what might be described as FARK-ish poster's regret.

I want a translation! Or captions. :D I only caught very small bits of the conversation between the nervous giggling and the camera trying to decide who's expression was the funniest.

Go, Geoducks go,
Through the mud and the sand,
let's go.
Siphon high, squirt it out,
swivel all about,
let it all hang out.

Go, Geoducks go,
Stretch your necks when the tide
is low
Siphon high, squirt it out,
swivel all about,
let it all hang out.

Unless my high school french has failed me, they were discussing the best way to cook a big cock.

They're Quebecois, these three dudes; they're laughing nervously and asking the little pink-shirted asian dude (who learned his French in Quebec, but still has a bit of an accent from his native tongue) how one cooks this 'palourde royale', this King Clam.

The resemblance to a giant dong is never said aloud, and asian dude is doing his best to just show them how to cook the damn thing - he's being an admirable straight man here, answering questions like, 'can you eat these raw? I imagine they'd be rubbery.' with grace and restraint.

so... guys in Canada never develop emotionally or intellectually much past about the equivalent of age 13. Is that the message here?????

It's a damn good thing that Michigan just decided to NOT build another bridge to Canada...

If I ever stop finding geoducks funny, just drive a spike through my brain stem. No point in living.

Man that little pink dude is like every 3rd person in Montreal during Pride Week.

from idiopath's link:

The geoduck has a life expectancy of up to 150 years with the oldest recorded at 163 years.

Wow. You really do learn something new every day.

well life expectancy if its not the chosen one

They would probably find this less funny if the roles were reversed. "Your penis looks like a tiny slug!"

Very funny vidéo coming out of a usually very boring show...
A friend published that last week on FB...
I said to myself ' aww, fuk, des kiwis et des hommes???!!'
I gave it a try, didnt regret it!

Yeah Huronbob, only canadians would find that thing funny.
I guess puritans-'Murkins would call the FCC to complain...
take your Freedom-canadian bashing to FARK...

C'en dit *long* au sujet des animateurs québécois ... for the King Clam came from B.C.

Put that in your google translator and smoke it!

"puritans-'Murkins "

what?
posted by HuronBob at 10:44 AM on June 4, 2010


CitoyenK, I don't think it's espousing puritanism or the need for censorship to say that the prolonged, nigh-helpless giggling seems a bit childish and makes those two alleged "adults" look like immature schoolboys.
posted by Greg_Ace at 10:51 AM on June 4, 2010


Ok, ok , I'm the only one here who found that video funny.
It's normal I'm immature, I am Québecois...
I didn't notice this thread was devoted to the psychoanalysis
of Francis Reddy and Boubakar Diouf.

"Boubakar Diouf" see, now THAT name I could laugh at all day! That and Canadian Bacon...which isn't bacon at all....

well, I also thought it was kind of funny
though yeah, also immature and awkward
I'm also enjoying this new thing

"comments in blank verse"

"Boubaker Diouf"

And Canadian Bacon...

Hey, Tri's resto is just up the street from me, in Montreal. He's a cool guy, used to work for the best sushi place in town, but now has his own hole-in-the-wall sushi place.

I didn't find the video very funny, but since it's circulating like crazy, I showed to my GF, who couldn't stop laughing.

Oh no! Blank verse?

I am disappointed that geoducks have nothing to do with cartography.

I definitely thought geoduck was a pokemon the first time I heard it. Then I realized I was thinking of this and this.
