Known for their quirky humor and for their second degree, the films of the “Shrek” saga are not intended only for children. Here are 10 jokes intended only for the older ones.
Jokes that hit a little below the belt, illicit substances, naughty innuendo … Some jokes from the Shrek saga, known for its crazy humor and its second degree, are aimed more at adults than ‘ to children. Here are 10 valves for the biggest spectators …
Lord Farquaad’s complex
When Shrek and the Donkey arrive in front of the cruel and tiny Farquaad’s gigantic castle, the green ogre laughs out loud: “Wouldn’t he like something to compensate, your lord?” An implication that will be left to the free interpretation of the spectators, to determine if Shrek wanted to strike his future rival below the belt.
“Wash your … ***!”
Soon after, as they enter the fortress, Shrek and the Donkey are entitled to a little welcome song with rather funny lyrics. Sung by automatons, the melody reminds visitors that “Duloc is a perfect world”, but also some basic recommendations: “Don’t skip the embankments, wash your feet, wash your … nose!” A line to which certain poets would undoubtedly have been tempted to offer a rhyme a little more trivial.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
When the Magic Mirror introduces Lord Farquaad to the three princesses he could possibly marry, his description of Snow White leaves a heavy hint. He specifies that the “Catherinette n ° 2, although she lives with 7 men, is not an easy girl.” Enough to trigger a snare drum roll and some embarrassed laughter among the soldiers of the castle.
At the very beginning of Shrek 2, when Prince Charming arrives at Fiona’s castle and comes face to face with the Big Bad Wolf, the latter is reading a magazine called “Pork Illustrated” and on which we can see … a pig in underwear.
A potion apart
Among the many vials that parade through the Fairy Godmother’s potions factory, one bears a label marked with the word “Fiagra”. Another joke intended for older children, provided you have the eye to spot it and modify the first letter of the inscription.
Pants that are too wide
When Shrek finds himself transformed into a human and wakes up surrounded by three peasant women who take care of him, he doesn’t immediately understand what is happening to him. When his pants, become much too large for his human size, tumble down to his ankles, his three admirers suddenly go into ecstasies, probably in front of something other than the knees of the character.
When Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots are arrested by the kingdom’s troops (in a sequence parodying the American COPS program), the soldiers unearth a suspicious bag in the feline’s boots. “Catnip ?,” the guard then asks him. To which Potté replies, embarrassed, that it is not his. Does the adorable twink consume illicit substances?
Just when he has to lie for his nose to lengthen and for Shrek’s rescue to work, the little wooden puppet exclaims, under the guidance of Tibiscuit, whom he is carrying. “little lace panties.” Seeing that nothing happens, the gingerbread man notices that Pinocchio is indeed sporting … a pink thong.
In Shrek 3, when the ogre and his fellow travelers arrive at Artie’s school to meet him, they stumble upon two other students, locked in a cart that looks strangely like a hippie bus, and from which a thick smoke emerges. “By the evil plague, cousin! You must never burn frankincense with myrrh!”one of them exclaims as he leaves, in a somewhat suspicious state.
It’s high for the Donkey!
“Mazette, I haven’t glided like this since my first flight,” exclaims the Donkey when he finds himself accidentally transported in the body of Puss in Boots. In French version, this line is certainly nothing special. But in the original version, where the character claims “that he hasn’t been hovering like this since college”, it takes on a whole new dimension.
