So... it looks like I've had my last class of my undergraduate career! \o/ DONE.
Well, not entirely. I still have to hand in one more paper (Women's Studies, due Friday), finish a take home exam handed out today, and write one last, final sit down exam a week from today... but I'm getting there! I'm nearly finished! :D It's all very exciting!
( Brief rundown on Acadian history and the Chiaq dialect for those not in the know )
But oh my goodness it's entertaining to hear them speak. See this AMAZING parody(?) dub of a clip from Toy Story in Acadian French. Don't worry, even if you don't speak French, you'll find it funny. Listen closely.
HISTOIRE DE TOY
Some awesome lines:
"Walt Disney Pictures est bain bain proud de vous presentez le longmetrage(?) Acadien... Histoire de Toy!"
"Whoa whoa whoa, le Dog, touches pas mon ray-gun, tu peux hurtez ton self!"
"Duh, ce n'est pas un ray-gun, god, c'est just un flashing light!"
"Okay, stop it now, on est tout vraiment impressed par le nouveau toy d'Andy-"
(I love that it plays with this - P.S.: "jouet" is French for "Toy".)
"Vers l'infinie... AND BEYOND!"
