Sorry people forgive the major ignorance but is the expression “your a riot!” common in the U.S? Is it the English equivalent of “your a scream!”????June 22, 2009 2:14 pm at 2:14 pm #923476
mepal, reminds me of one summer, upstate, my brother had a serious allergic reaction and went into anaphylactic shock. One of the Hatzalah guys who came was this chassidish guy. My little 10 yr old brother is sitting there with an oxygen mask on his face and he says to my brother, “tell me da trut, I don’t bite. Do you feel tight in your choke?” (You really have to hear it with the accent, he still imitates it!)
~a~June 22, 2009 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #923477
lol anonymiss! I just hear the guy saying that!
mr. noitall, not sure what “your a scream!” means, but first of all, its you’RE and ‘you’re a riot’ is (ruffly speaking) an expression of someone being really funny.June 22, 2009 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #923478

Some method actors try to look sad, but poor Mel Gibson tells the story that when he played Hamlet, he brought a sheepdog with him on set, so people would say there goes Mel and Collie.

c) Look for words that sound like a combination of two or more words, then try to come up with a humorous definition that ties them together.
Thank you for the interest / encouragement.
