Wait, you can't tell us it's delirious and then not translate it. That's like saying 'I have a secret' and walking away. Teeth smile

It's just a disjointed list of funny sounding sentences, sprinkled with cliché expressions taken outside their context and intentionally awkward puns, some of them having something to do with birds.

For instance:
C'est quoi que c'est -> a nonsensical mix of "c'est quoi ?" and "qu'est-ce que c'est ?", two ways of asking "what is it?"
L'ambulance de Monsieur est avancée -> sounds like a butler saying "the master's ambulance is ready"
Bien avancée -> that means "so high it's practically rotten", speaking about meat. Just a silly pun on two completely different meanings of "avancée"

Imagine what the whole song would look like. Either a total nonsense or a forest of footnotes Regular smile

Okay, have you ever heard Beck's "Loser". The first time I heard it, I thought, there must be some deep symbolism here. Nope. For the full effect, you should listen, at least until he says to go crazy with the Cheese Whiz. https://lyricstranslate.com/en/Beck-Loser-lyrics.html

Are you in France, may I ask? Have you tried liquid, canned cheese before?

Then theres, oh!, Birdhouse in Your Soul https://lyricstranslate.com/en/They-Might-Be-Giants-Birdhouse-Your-Soul-...

Oh yes, I love that song. It was a big hit the only time I went to the US, you could hear it all the time on the radio. Pure nonsense, but really funny.
The other one seems like a bad acid trip, at first glance. But maybe I lack the clues to make sense of it?

We have a specific liquid cheese, and even a famous song about it.
Not the best cheese around, if you ask me. The industrial version is insipid. The real stuff smells of unwashed cow and has a somewhat sour taste Regular smile

I have a theory that if I eat cheese that smells like unwashed cow, someday the smell will come out of my pores.

I gently scolded a man at work eating such: "Think of your girlfriend!"

I remember my g/f complaining about a few things, but not specifically about a smell of cow.
On the other hand, we both consumed about the same amount of the stuff, so maybe she just didn't notice?

Wow, BlackSea is a science gal! Who knew?

"disgust is a complex response" - good and perhaps unintentionally humorous summary

I suggest Suliko , Stalin's favourite song... but not for that reason, just because it is beautiful (the song is from Georgia).
