Ukrainian on Family Guy (Video)

November 22nd, 2010 2 comments

On last week’s Family Guy, Lois found herself in ‘Foxy Boxing’ and was up against an opponent from Ukraine – but quite surprisingly was able was speak Ukrainian herself:

Lois: I’m sorry there’s been a terrible mistake, my idiot husband booked this match without my knowledge… Bell rings – Punch!

Peter: She’s from the Ukraine Lois, she doesn’t speak English.

Lois: Alright, мені шкода про вас… Punch! (Roughly translated: ‘I feel sorry for you…’ – thanks Taras)

Peter: She’s from the other part of the Ukraine, it’s a different dialect.

Joe: Did you know where the Ukraine was ’cause of my globe?

Peter: No, I saw it in a book.

Joe: *sigh*.. you knew, ’cause of my globe – you dick!

I found a neat little site who’s purpose is to practice your conversation skills with others in specific languagues, and they support Ukrainian!  SharedTalk Beta is for language exchange and language learning, they say they will not tolerate its use for things like flirting, homework, etc.  Give it a try!
