Every Sunday afternoon, my host sisters and I would tune into Canal 2 to watch "les guignols de l'info." We would get our aperitifs and camp out for an hour, and almost die laughing. Even when I watch it, I am constantly blown away with the accuracy of the voices. Bill Clinton is Bill Clinton. They didn't even miss his Southern inflections, which are hard to duplicate, even by another American. They always had something that made you laugh, of not from the verbal cues, but from the pure silliness of it. One of the scenes I remember from almost ten years ago was during the presidential elections. They had a spot of Leonard Josephin and Jacques Chirac on a date out in the countryside. They were frolicking by the water, and having a picnic. If that doesn't make you at least giggle then you're dead. FYI, these same guys did the Genesis video... Ronald Reagan deploying the nukes, Mikael Gorbechev, etc.
