How Do You Say “This Spring Can Not End Soon Enough” in French?
First it was Le Pen
. Then, it was the French National soccer team getting the boot from the World Cup
. And I’m not a linguist, but when the guys on Denmark yell to each other, does it sound like they are speaking German
UPDATE: A reader from France (Sacre bleu!) writes to say hello and offer some assistance. Apparently, when next I am in Paris, if I wish to commiserate with the locals, I should simply say (let me get this):
Bonjour. Je m’appelle “Monsieur MinuteMan“, mais vous m’appellez “Monsieur merde du chien”
Will Rogers was right: there are no strangers here, just friends
you haven’t met yet. And gracias, amigo.
