It can be truly extraordinary just how many dialects of the English language there are, but few perplex Americans as much as a thick Scottish brogue.
Now, a small child with a thick Scottish brogue is another thing entirely, as Steve Harvey recently found out.
The legendary host of “Family Feud” and now “Little Big Shots”, which features pint-size rising stars with lots of personality, recently sat down with 6-year-old Oscar, who just so happens to be barely comprehensible to the American star.
The simplest words failed to cross the language barrier, and what proceeded was pure hilarity.
First, Harvey asks little Oscar what his favorite subject is in school, and the fact that his answer involves food makes his answer all the more difficult to understand.
“I like the fesh. So good,” Oscar answers.
Harvey is clearly completely baffled.
“You like the what?” he asks.
“Fesh,” Oscar repeats. Aware Harvey is stumped, he mimics eating, saying “mm.”
This didn’t seem to help much.
“See like fesh in the sea,” Oscar offered.
This helped, but Harvey realized why he’d been so confused.
“I don’t… I don’t understand how fish got in this conversation,” he says to the roaring audience laughter. “I’m trying to tie the two together.”
Oscar’s pronunciation of the word “fish” is so thick, Harvey tries a few times to get him to say it as an American would, saying “fiiiiish” to which Oscar replies, “yes, fesh.”
Harvey eventually gives up and asks him what kind of “fesh” it is.
The segment continues on to a few Scottish words that Harvey asks Oscar to explain, but his answers are just as hilarious baffling to Harvey as his favorite subject in school.
This will definitely make your day, enjoy!
