  Wed. 8/7/13 6:08pm anonymous coward:

Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:15pm hamburger:

what has been learnt can not be unlearned - merkin...
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:15pm northguineahills:

I know I've listened to 7 second delay online since 2000, and online, the sound quality was much worse then that back then (WFMU since '98 online).
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:16pm Danne D:

Love the comments. Can't believe I got through.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:17pm hamburger:

Danne D - good call on the Best Show :)
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:17pm Danne D:

Thanks Hamburger, that's nice of you to say :)
Hi everyone :)
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:18pm hamburger:

hah, andy can't give a compliment without adding a burn
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:18pm Danne D:

These reruns always make me wistful hope that one day the "20 Questions" episode from the mid-late 90s will somehow emerge and be aired :)
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:21pm northguineahills:

Wow, they have no Spanish aptitude. jaja!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:22pm Caryn:

While Andy rants about the impossibility of the episode, a little factoid about merkins: merkins made of beaver pelt are the reason people use "beaver" to refer to vaginas.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:22pm northguineahills:

then again, my Finnish is non-existent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:23pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Was this really 2004?! I would've swore that this happened like 2 years ago...
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:24pm northguineahills:

all, I know, is the original reason for the merkins was b/c prostitutes would get various STDs where the sores would eliminate the pubic hair. So, the merkins would be used to hide the lack of pubic hair.
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:25pm green mountain man mark:

I can't handle this. So simple Spanish and Andy feels he has ..son of ..- a bitch
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:25pm hamburger:

who needs the rosetta stone cds when you have this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:26pm G:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:26pm Caryn:

@NGH: also true. If a prostitute seemed to have pubic hair, she not only seemed more healty, but was also considered higher-class, and thus, could charge more.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:26pm northguineahills:

exactly, green mountain man mark!
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:26pm green mountain man mark:

Lets let the joke end on the white boy/Jew boy.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:28pm northguineahills:

now, i know where the slang, beaver, came from. (I first came across beaver in Vonnegut's "Breakfast of Champions". I was 16, and I suppose it had lost currency of teenage slang in the 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:28pm G:

which wife was that? :p
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:31pm Danne D:

Best answer ever :)
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:32pm Danne D:

@ngh it lives on anytime Frank Drebin is on the tv screen
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:32pm northguineahills:

wow, I have no idea what Andy is saying!
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:33pm northguineahills:

When I first saw Naked Gun, I didn't get the reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:33pm Caryn:

Considering how difficult Andy finds this, I can't even imagine how hard it would be for him if the joke was translated into Finnish...
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:37pm hamburger:

on the radio for how many years?! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:38pm Caryn:

@Danne & NGH: the translation of the beaver joke into other languages can be challenging, since many languages don't use "beaver" that way. Or "pussy".
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:39pm hamburger:

@Caryn at which point you fire that translator and hire an interpreter :B
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:39pm Ange:

Should they re-do this idea a decade later with Siri?
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:42pm Danne D:

Anything involving Andy asking Siri questions is a good premise, Andrea :)
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:43pm Ange:

@G That's his new bride Beth giggling!
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:43pm hamburger:

Lord have mercy on Andy's Spanish teacher's soul for those 2 years.
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:43pm Dean:

I know this is like...a bit...but Andy has to be extremely ignorant to not have gotten through this by now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:45pm Caryn:

The joke in Finnish:
Mies ajaa moottoritiellä. Hänen vaimonsa soittaa hänelle, ja sanoo: "Ole varovainen, rakas! Uutisissa sanottiin, että joku hullu ajaa kuulemma väärään suuntaan moottoritiellä." Mies huudahtaa: "Joku hullu? Niitähän on satoja!"
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:46pm Franken NewYork:

How would someone who doesn't speak any english know to call in? They don't understand english.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:47pm hamburger:

@Caryn: Google translate, translate that as "A man driving on a motorway. His wife calls him and says, "Be careful, my dear! News said that someone heard a crazy ride in the wrong direction on the motorway." A man exclaims: "Some crazy? Niitähän there are hundreds!"" pretty close, except for Niitähän?
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:48pm hamburger:

@Franken New York: I guess they would need to be able to understand two languages, if that would ever be possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:49pm Caryn:

Danne, you sound so different in 2004!

I kid, I kid...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:51pm Caryn:

@hamburger: that's pretty good for Google Translate
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:51pm steve:

as someone whos only come to ssd in the past few years its good to see the trainwrecks have always been a part of the show
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:51pm Dean:

How is he still pronouncing it wrong is it's written phonetically?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 6:53pm Caryn:

@Dean: well, Andy's the one who wrote it down phoneticallly, and can't read his own handwriting. So basically, he's the weak link here.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:53pm hamburger:

.... oh andy
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:57pm Danne D:

lol Caryn I just caught that one :)
I'm sure you can dig around and find how I sounded in 2004 on one of these archives.
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:57pm Dean:

No puedo.
  Wed. 8/7/13 6:58pm phil:

what a train wreck
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 6:58pm northguineahills:

Yeah, even by 7SD standards, this is a train wreck.
  Wed. 8/7/13 7:00pm Dean:

Just have Ken read it..lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 7:00pm steve:

so many laughs
  Wed. 8/7/13 7:01pm Dean:

I love the Javier "aaah" though
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 7:01pm Danne D:

Bye SSDers :) Bye Andrea :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/13 7:01pm Caryn:
