“What housewife has not felt just a bit lame upon arriving at the supermarket? What housewife has not, at times, lacked the strength to lift her hand high enough to reach that slightly more expensive product?”
I am quoting Dona Edith, a character in the São Paulo comedy series Terça Insana or Crazy Tuesday. This is not a television series, no; it takes place in a club.
The video is in Portuguese and contains biting, sometimes broad humor about growing up not just poor, but starving. Attached to it are links to videos of more Terça Insana sketches. Yes is it black humor … but Brazil is a poor country.
