Putin, the Piece-Keeper

 


先程のニュースを知ったのはニューヨークタイムズによるナイトショーのまとめ記事から。バイデン大統領のおじいちゃんネタは鉄板で、Twosdayの時にも言及されていました。

“Yeah, ‘Twosday’ because it’s Tuesday 2-22-22. Yeah, this only happens once every 100 years. President Biden was like, ‘I didn’t care then, I didn’t care now.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“The last time an all two date happened was Feb. 22, 1922. American women had just recently won the right to vote, Amelia Earhart bought her first plane. Now President Joe Biden just passed his first gallstone.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

コメディショーといえども日本と違って政治ネタはタブーではないので、ウクライナ情勢も取り上げています。プーチンのはpeace keeping operationではなく、piece keeping operationというくだりは英語学習者にもピンとくるジョークでした。

BEST OF LATE NIGHT
Colbert said Putin sought to keep the peace, and imitated Russia’s president: “I keep this piece of Ukraine. I keep that piece of Ukraine. I keep all the pieces of Ukraine.”

Putin, the Piece-Keeper
Russia’s imminent invasion of Ukraine was the talk of late night on Tuesday, when Stephen Colbert sought to answer why Vladimir Putin planned to send troops into another country.

“He claims it’s to carry out ‘peacekeeping functions,’ and it’s true,” Colbert said. “I keep this piece of Ukraine. I keep that piece of Ukraine. I keep all the pieces of Ukraine. I am piece-keeping,” he said, imitating Putin.

英語学習者として驚嘆したのは六ヶ国語を流暢に喋るリポーターが紹介されていたこと。Wikipediaにも載っていました。
