The well-known actor Giorgos Yiannopoulos has been associated with one of the most viral jokes of Greek cinema with the legendary “How did you cut them off like that?” How c@$&5#@ them like that? My stools and my @#$&$í@”, has remained indelible in the public’s memory.
This particular line was said in a scene from the movie “Little Fish”, with the actor revealing that it came about in an interview he gave on the Action 24 show “Better Late”.
“My jokes in the cinema more about ‘the little fish’ the infamous ‘how did you cut them, my stools and my…’ and all that. It was my line, because the scene had been forty takes and I was already desperate and I saw a stool in front of me and I said “come c@#$%@” let’s say and I took them in the skull”said George Yiannopoulos.
When asked if he’s generally tight-lipped, he replied: “I didn’t get that again. What does athyrostomy mean? Tell me, you who are a journalist and educated, etc. We are far behind as Greeks, you know that?
In other words, the Americans say the stupid thing every day and they say the mare is lost in the threshing floor, so to speak.
Here, if you say the word sex, you pass, if you say the word “γ@$#^@” you will be taken in for public indecency because “γ@$#^@” comes from the word “fuck-fuck” that comes from the gay that it is our womb the earth, it is a shame for Greece with such a rich vocabulary.
If I want to leave, you allow me for the parenthesis, an imprint on this thing called an artist, it is to leave this freedom. This is not an atherostomy, to speak our mind. There is this thing called finger, this thing called so-and-so, let’s talk things out».
