Welcome, my Filipino friends, to the Budding Ventriloquist Winter Olympic Coverage.
As you can see, sometimes the online translators just can't help you. I will buy a beer for anyone who can provide the Filipino/Tagalong words for Budding Ventriloquist Winter Olympic Coverage. A high falutin' one, too. (I usually only drink medium falutin' ones at best. It's a Milwaukee "macro-brew" thing.)
The Philippines did not send a team of their own, but a few athletes of Filipino descent are there.
Filipino-American speed skater and bronze medalist J.R. Celski was disqualified in the men's 1000-meter short track speed skating event. The half-Filipino, half-Polish speed skater was disqualified for bumping a Canadian.
Way to make your guests feel welcome, Canada. Keep your guests in line. Be sure they don't put their glass on your grand piano, either.
And hang on to your socks. When you say Filipino ventriloquism, you only need to say Ony Carcamo. And then say, "wow."
This schtick is too cool. As Ony's website describes it:
After a few minutes of dialogues (let's not mention the whole routine here), Ony and Nonoy invite an audience member on stage. Nonoy instructs the volunteer to puts several strips of masking tape over Ony's mouth, so Ony--and Nonoy, of course--can't talk...
But a miracle happens!
Nonoy continues to talk... and talk... and talk!Enjoy.
***This is turning into a fascinating collection of foreign language ventriloquist videos, don't you think?
As merely a budding ventriloquist, I think of how my ventriloquism attempts sound just like this, except I'm speaking English.
