ENCORE POST: Abbott et Costello Aller au Collège

Sorry. i don't want to imply that i'm lazy but....



Yeah, sometimes I'm lazy. 

Sorry. Long day at work and I'm really tired. So today, I present an Encore Post from Wednesday, May 1, 2013 called "Abbott et Costello aller au Collège". 

Or...

"Abbott and Costello Go to College"

Scene: Two college freshmen studying for French class.

Bud: "Excuse me, can you help with a question on this 

assignment?"

Lou: "I'll be happy to help if I can."

Bud: "Do you know what 'Je ne sais quois' means? 

Lou: "'Je ne sais quois?"

Bud: "Yes, 'Je ne sais quois'." 

Lou: "Oh, I know that means."

Bud: "Oh good! What does it mean?"

Lou: "I don't know."

Bud: "What?"

Lou: "I don't know."

Bud: "I thought you said you knew."

Lou: "Know what?"

Bud: "What 'Je ne sais quois' means?"

Lou: "But I do."

Bud: "So what does it mean?"

Lou: "I don't know."

Bud: "You don't know?"

Lou: "No! 'I don't know'."

Bud: "Look, I don't know either."

Lou: "Don't know what?"

Bud: "What 'je ne sais quois' means!"

Lou: "But I told you." 

Bud: "No, you haven't told me nothin', buddy!"

Lou: "Yes, I have." 

Bud: "No, you said you don't know."

Lou: "No! 'I don't know'."

Bud: "Great! So we BOTH don't know."

Lou: "No, that's 'Nous ne savons pas'." 

Bud: "Don't bring another language into this!"

Lou: "That's still French!" 

Bud: "So you know French, eh?"

Lou: "Yes, yes I do."

Bud: "And if I ask you do you know what 'Je ne sais quois' 

means, you would answer....?"

Lou: "I would answer, 'Yes, I know what 'Je ne sais quois' means?"

Bud: "Aaaaaand...what does 'Je ne sais quois' mean?"

Lou: "I don't know!" 

Bud: "Arrgh! There you go again! I ask do you know what

'Je ne sais quois' means and you say yes!! And when I ask 

you what 'Je ne sais quois' means, you say I don't know!!!!"

Lou: "Ah ha! That's it!!" 

Bud: "What? What's it?" 

Lou: "You just said what 'Je ne sais quois' means!" 

Bud: "What did I say?"

Lou: "I don't know!" 

Bud: "What? You weren't listening?"

Lou: "Yes I was." 

Bud: "And I said what 'Je ne sais quois' means?"

Lou: "Yes, you did!" 

Bud: "So what did I say?"

Lou: "I don't know."

Bud: "Arrgh! You said you were listening."

Lou: "I was!"

Bud: "But you said you don't know!" 

Lou: "No! 'I don't know'."

Bud: (sigh) "No, brother, you don't..."

Lou: "Yes, I do."

Bud: "So you keep telling me. But I gotta tell ya, this 

conversation's lacking a certain...I don't know.."

Lou: "Je ne said qouis?"

Bud: "I give up!" (exits) 

Lous: (calling after) " That's 'J'abandonne'."
