Check out my new shades.
Jennine’s husband is German so she’s picked up some of the language from him. That’s what led to our having a conversation worthy of Abbott and Costello while Jennine was staying at my house during Fashion Week in February.
WendyB: You once told me a funny word for “fish” in German, but I can’t remember what it is.
WendyB: Yes, fish. I’m trying to remember the German word for it.
WendyB: That’s what I said! Tell me the German!
WendyB: Oh! “Fisch!” Well, I knew there was something funny about it!
I think that might have been right before this conversation, so now you know where some of the deliriousness captured on video came from.
Speaking of video, here’s the Abbott and Costello Who’s on First routine. Did you know that Abbott and Costello didn’t come up with that concept? Similar bits were a staple of comics in burlesque. What made Abbott and Costello’s version special was the interpretation and delivery. Just like fashion, isn’t it? You don’t have to be original to be the best.
