During conference yesterday, Mimi commented that Elder Eduardo Gavarret sort of looked like Andy from The Office. I would post his picture here, but the still picture doesn't really look much like Andy at all. But when we were watching, we all sorta laughed and agreed that he really did kind of look like Andy.
So anyway, we're listening along, completely enjoying Elder Gavarret's sweet Spanish accent. And then it happened. And if you have it on tape, I swear you can go back and listen to it.
He sort of stumbled on the translation, and instead of saying "bear my testimony" he said "beer my testimony" . ( He laughed and went back an corrected himself)
And I Could Not Stop Laughing.
I know that if you're not an Office fan, you're thinking, "Well, what's funny about that? And why are you making fun of his accent?" Which I really am not.
But every time I think about it, it makes me laugh right out loud. All afternoon and into the evening I just randomly remembered it and laughed right out loud. The Brain caught me giggling while I was brushing my teeth, and the only thing he could say? "Beer me strength." which I realize is not funny in the least, unless you are an Office fan, and then, well, you know what I mean.
( I don't want to hear about what it says about my mothering skills, when Andy from the office is the first thing that pops into my daughter's brain while watching conference.)
(And I especially don't want anyone to think that his talk and/or accent were anything but amazing. His message about inviting people back to church was fantastic! [See? I was listening!])
But come on, it's pretty funny right?
(I'll be back later with contest results!)
