Humor of Subtitles

Humor of Subtitles is from Me Talk Pretty One Day, a humorous book partly about struggling to learn French, by David Sedaris.

Here is an excerpt from the chapter The City of Light in the Dark, about movie theaters in Paris:

-----

In Paris

[American] movies are shown in their original English with French subtitles.

Someone might say,

"Get your fat ass out of here before I do something I regret,"

and the screen will read [in French],

"Leave."
