Video - TV Tunes - Talent, Bloopers and Saddam!?

July 31st, 2011 11 Comments
Today we will go through the vocabulary of 3 chosen clips that will entertain you as well as teach you some good Arabic. Plenty of colloquial words in this lesson and the last clip is something that you most certainly have not seen before.

Thanks for your comments gals. It's been a while since we've heard from either of you. I would be interested to hear how many people find this type of video podcast beneficial, where the vocabulary are explained before watching the clip.

Mohammed, very cool... more!

By the way, speaking of the Saddam Hussein crime family, did you happen to notice that there is a new movie about his son Uday? "The Devil's Double"...

What do you think everyone, could Mohammed have passed for a double of Uday?

The saddam one was especially funny, LOL

PS: we would translate تفتح عقلق as "open your mind" instead of brain.

Do you know why تفتح is 'open' in the first sentence and تفك is 'you open' in the last line?

Seems like this word تفك is missing the roots of فتح.....whats going on?
