It looks like a company  flowchart...  but it's an ironic parody :

"Why hasn't the person you texted responded yet ?"

Silly ? Amazing ? Definitely unusual. It might well prove to be another way of going green ;o)

This video is quite funny : it shows Rowan Atkinson (the famous "Mr Bean") and Hugh Laurie ("Doctor House") playing Blackadder and William Shakespeare.

Click on the manuscript below

to read the transcript of the sketch.

I hope you'll have fun !

By the way, William Shakespeare was baptised

on April... 26  (in 1564).

You may all know Hugh Laurie, the lead actor in "Dr House" series...

In this short video clip from an awarding ceremony, the actor plays the interpreter of Helen Mirren into French. He seems to be getting on her nerves quite fast, thus she makes it difficult for him ... though in the end it's nothing but self-derision   :o)

The series is American and so is Dr House's accent but yet, the actor is British !
He is said to have worked hard on his accent to pretend he was American : otherwise he would never have got the job !
_______________________________________________

lead actor = the main role/actor in a film or series  /   get on someone's nerves = irritate someone   /   yet = however    /    to pretend (faire comme si / faire semblant)   /    otherwise = differently than as supposed or expected
