Abbott and Costello 2015

Αυτή είναι η σύγχρονη εκδοχή:



Και αυτό είναι το πρωτότυπο:



Τα λόγια από το πρωτότυπο, τα έχω παραθέσει στο τέλος της ανάρτησης. Φυσικά είναι λογοπαίγνιο ανάμεσα στην λέξη "who" (ποιός) και στο παρατσούκλι Who κάποιου υποθετικού παίκτη του baseball.  Η Στάη πχ, που είναι η ορίτζιναλ εκδοχή της Κοσιώνη,   και η Κοσιώνη, νομίζουν ότι είναι ...δημοσιογράφοι!  Και αυτό είναι λογοπαίγνιο. Δεν είναι δημοσιογράφοι, είναι "δημοσιογράφοι".   Γκιόσες επί το συντομότερο, αν και είμαι σίγουρος ότι δεν ξέρουν καν τι σημαίνει η λέξη.    Λογοπαίγνιο.



Το λυπηρό είναι ότι όπως ο Βαρβιτσιώτης ο Β' δεν καταλαβαίνει ότι ήταν προκλητική μακακία και ένδειξη απύθμενης ηλιθιότητας αυτό που είπε, έτσι και ο Κυριάκος, και όλοι αυτοί, και οι γκιόσες της Τι-Βι, δεν καταλαβαίνουν (ο καθένας αυτά που τον εμπλέκουν).  Αυτοί βέβαια είναι πεπεισμένοι ότι ΕΓΩ δεν καταλαβαίνω.  Πράγματι... Εγώ δεν έχω I-phone και είμαι χαμένος στην ψευδαίσθηση των αποτελεσματικών αγορών...  

Αν δεν ήταν τραγωδία, θα ήταν πολύ αστείο...

(Lou Costello is considering becoming a ballplayer. Bud Abbott wants to make sure he knows what he's getting into.)

Abbott: Strange as it may seem, they give ball players nowadays very peculiar names.
Costello: Funny names?
Abbott: Nicknames, nicknames. Now, on the St. Louis team we have Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know is on third--
Costello: That's what I want to find out. I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the St. Louis team.
Abbott: I'm telling you. Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know is on third--
Costello: You know the fellows' names?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: Well, then who's playing First? Ποιός παίζει στην πρώτη θέση?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: I mean the fellow's name on first base.
Abbott: WHO.  Ο παίκτης με το παρατσούκλι WHO
Costello: The fellow playin' first base.
Abbott: Who.
Costello: The guy on first base.
Abbott: Who is on first.
Costello: Well, what are you askin' me for?
Abbott: I'm not asking you--I'm telling you. Who is on first.
Costello: I'm asking you--who's on first?
Abbott: That's the man's name.
Costello: That's who's name?
Abbott: Yes.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?
Abbott: Every dollar of it. And why not, the man's entitled to it.
Costello: Who is?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: So who gets it?
Abbott: Why shouldn't he? Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.
Costello: Who's wife?
Abbott: Yes. After all, the man earns it.
Costello: Who does?
Abbott: Absolutely.
Costello: Well, all I'm trying to find out is what's the guy's name on first base?
Abbott: Oh, no, no. What is on second base.
Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.
Abbott: Who's on first!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Costello: St. Louis has a good outfield?
Abbott: Oh, absolutely.
Costello: The left fielder's name?
Abbott: Why.
Costello: I don't know, I just thought I'd ask.
Abbott: Well, I just thought I'd tell you.
Costello: Then tell me who's playing left field?
Abbott: Who's playing first.
Costello: Stay out of the infield! The left fielder's name?
Abbott: Why.
Costello: Because.
Abbott: Oh, he's center field.
Costello: Wait a minute. You got a pitcher on this team?
Abbott: Wouldn't this be a fine team w i t h o u t a pitcher?
Costello: Tell me the pitcher's name.
Abbott: Tomorrow.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Costello: Now, when the guy at bat bunts the ball--me being a good catcher--I want to throw the guy out at first base, so I pick up the ball and throw it to who?
Abbott: Now, that's he first thing you've said right.
Costello: I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!
Abbott: Don't get excited. Take it easy.
Costello: I throw the ball to first base, whoever it is grabs the ball, so the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to what. What throws it to I don't know. I don't know throws it back to tomorrow--a triple play.
Abbott: Yeah, it could be.
Costello: Another guy gets up and it's a long ball to center.
Abbott: Because.
Costello: Why? I don't know. And I don't care.
Abbott: What was that?
Costello: I said, I DON'T CARE!
Abbott: Oh, that's our shortstop!
