Soupy Norman: A Completely Mental Show on Irish TV

I was working with a guy today. We were talking about funny stuff on YouTube and he asked if I'd ever heard of Soupy Norman. I'd never heard of it before. He immediately burst out laughing and tried to explain to me what Soupy Norman was about while also describing some scenes of the show.

Soupy Norman is a program that was shown on RTE2 in the Irish Republic around 3 years ago. The good people at RTE took a Polish Soap Opera and over dubbed it with Southern Irish accents and a totally different and irrelevant story line that has absolutely nothing to do with what’ s going on in the soap. But it's a story that works with what’s happening on screen. The results are nothing short of hilarious.

The made up story is one of a country girl from Cork going to the big bad city of Dublin for college.

The rest you can watch for yourself…
