One of my favourite hobbies is analysing languages. I went through
some French expressions ad translated them into English. Funny, funny,
funny. Then it struck me how much French love animals. A policeman
is a "poulet" ( chicken ), an umbrella spoke is "une
baleine de parapluie" ( whale of an umbrella ), and when you
want to say a girl is sexy, you say "elle a du chien" (
she has dog )...and then you have full expressions that are completely
crazy like "she is cowly owly, she has dog, but she posed him
a rabbit, and now he has the cockroach" ( elle est vachement
chouette, elle a du chien, mais elle lui a pose un lapin, et maintenant
il a le cafard ).
OKOKOK translation is "She is bloody nice, looking sexy, but
she stood him up, and now he has the blues ).
Brits on the contrary must hate animals. Don't they call French "frogs"?
And, although I know many English who love France, I don't know any
who like French...do you?
Have a great weekend
First EU enlargement joke:
A Czech goes to the ophthalmologist who shows him a card with the
C Z W X N Z S T A C Z
"Can you read this?", he asks.
"Read?" the Czech replies, "I even know the guy!"
Second EU enlargement joke:
A lady from Prague goes to the gynaecologist who, after having examined
her, looks at her over his glasses and asks:
"Have you had a check-up lately?"
"No," she replies, "but a few Slovaks!"
After Portuguese, French, Americans, English, Luxembourgers, Italians,
Jews, Arabs, Whites, Blacks, here we go...Alex you're a dead man!!!
