  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 58. The noun phrase today is

  • funny farm. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. A funny farm is a humorous way

  • or a funny way of referring to a mental institution. The origin of the term comes

  • from the idea that funny can also have the meaning of strange or unusual. So the

  • word funny here was not originally meant to mean someone is laughing at

  • people with mental problems because I think sometimes people might take this

  • term the wrong way and think that. They might actually even be offended by it. Instead

  • it came from the expression that someone is funny in the head. If you say someone

  • is funny in the head, it means they're strange in their their thinking is

  • strange. Thus meaning their thinking is strange or unusual. All right, and let's

  • take a look at a couple of examples here. If you keep telling people that you have

  • seen aliens on several occasions they're going to put you in a funny farm. Yeah.

  • People might often say this if somebody you know keeps talking about stuff that

  • seems like crazy. That other people won't believe them. So if you keep talking that

  • way they are going to put you on a funny farm. That's the way we might hear it used. Or

  • number two. He started roaming the streets naked. Yeah. He just walking around

  • without any particular direction and talking gibberish. Meaning basically he's

  • saying a lot of words, but it doesn't make any sense. When people talk a lot but you

  • don't , really can't understand what they're talking about.

  • It's gibberish. They ended up taking him away to a funny farm. Yeah. This one is more

  • serious. This means he really did end up in a mental institution, but sometimes

  • it's said that way. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear . Thank you for your

  • time. Bye-bye.
