Explanation about the dialogue between Marlee Matlin and Lisa Lampanelli

I was asked by a deaf friend about the dialogue between Marlee Maitlin and Lisa Lampanelli during Donald Trump's roast on Comedy Central when Lisa jokingly asked Marlee if she could read Lisa's lips while in cameltoe mode.

Lisa: Ah, look at Marlee sitting up there like she's normal. Ay Marlee, you read lips, right? What's my camel toe saying? (Lisa thrusts her hips at Marlee's direction and bows her legs apart - Marlee plays along, gesturing at Lisa to spread her legs further apart)

My friend didn't understand what a camel's toe has to do with Lisa. I had to explain to her what a camel toe is. Boy, was she blushing big time after I explained to her what a camel toe is.

Interesting how someone, whose first language is not English, could struggle to understand the slang for "camel toe". It's not uncommon for a deaf person to not hear of words that have long since entered an average hearing person's consciousness. Hmm, maybe I should do a series on that...

To up your giggle factor...

There is nothing worse than being asked to explain a phrase that you know will embarrass the other person. Case and point my mother and aunt asking me to explain what "tea bagging" is. I wanted to sink into the earth and disappear.

*giggles* That is one of my pet peeves. I HATE CAMELTOES! I find them to be very disgusting.

Explaining that to someone, though, what a hoot! :)

I am fairly certain I would have metaphorically died. Heh :)

Poor Marlee! I can't imagine how drunk I'd have to be to want Lisa's crotch in my face. UGH!

Your friend was probably doubly shocked watching that roast.

Furry Bottoms - I know! Hehe

Amanda - what would be the official cause of death on your death certificate? ;)

Nitebyrd - Hahahaha! You're funny.
