    Hey Mods, if you so desire, feel free to move this one, 'cause I not at all sure where it belongs.

    So the other day, I'm sitting there with Slick Jr watching the Rangers -- NY of the NHL not Glasgow of the SPL and the young man expressed his interest in going up to Quebec to play junior hockey. So I says to him, "you'd better learn some French first." So he asks me, "how can I learn French?" And then it came to me, from the recesses of distant memory, my favorite educational program of my youth: French in Action. For those not familiar:



    Truth be known, I never learned a damned thing from that show. I was too entranced with the female lead's . . . . more visible attributes.



    Nevertheless, had I actually taken the opportunity to speak French more than twice a decade, I might have actually become conversant in the Gallic tongue. Anyways, my curiosity being piqued, I had to see what the World Wide Web's take on French in Action was, and I was shocked to learn this:



    I was otherwise occupied in that era, so I missed all the fun and games at Yale: the East Coast's headquarters for campus bullsht. Indeed, of all the Ivy League universities, none is as prone to leftover 1960s political crappola as Yale. So that some unshaven, unwashed, Yalie slob from Boston (New England's women are widely known as the US' least attractive -- and New Haven CT is a town where things and people decay at a geometric rate) objected to French in Action shouldn't come as any surprise. It was learning Prof Capretz's defense of his program that did surprise me, however:





    In the end, of course, Yale folded faster than a Chinese laundry: a month later, the university announced that it'll be altering its French course, aka greasing the squeaky wheel.

    So which is it: are Boston broads uptight frosty b*tches, or are Frogs lecherous perverts?
    Error, sorry did you say something? I was looking at the picture.

    I can't think of any reason why French men should have to wear this label..

    Indian men beat them by a country mile!

    Brayon may be related to Neufchatel en Bray ,25 miles distant from where I am living.
    We call this county "le pays de Bray"
    Producing one of the best French cheese ,le Neufchatel (finding a name wasn't the biggest trouble)

    That said, apparently France has changed. . . . .

    For comparative purposes, out of 115 countries rated under the same criteria in the first such report back in 2006, France placed 70th overall; not bad I guess, considering French women didn't get the vote until 1944! Could the ogling of female body parts and the cat calls remain? Could be, but I would think l'homme Français version of "Grab Them By The P*ssy" is on the decline.
    NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! The Horror! What's next: Canucks giving up beer and hockey?

    On the other hand, the New England b*tches are actually frostier today than they were twenty-five years ago, and New Haven's even sh*ttier.

    But I like Quebec -- the whole province, not just the City. It's much more interesting than the boring part of Canada. Besides, learning a foreign language is good for the brain. Perhaps it'll be something that Slick Jr and I can do together.

    We don't speak that name in my house.

When I suggested to my sons that they could learn French staying with her for a couple of weeks, their jaws dropped... nah, you could never submit your son to that kind of punishment, forget I mentioned the possibility of her taking him in.
    She sounds like una Quebecoise to me.

    Oh yeah, I'm not gonna fight France's battles, but if you ever use the terms "Frogs" or "Frenchies", for Canadians who happen to speak French, or in place of "Canadiens", I'll have to punch you in the nose, or be beaten to a pulp trying.
    What do English Canadians call their francophone cousins in jest -- lily jumpers?

    "Brayon, de la République du Madawaska": what the hell is that, like a subspecies of Quebecker?

    Her arty nude shoots are much more interesting

    Le sue immagini di nudo sono molto più interessanti

    Hennes nakenbilder är mycket mer intressant

    Sure, ...

    ... while I have no doubt that the Boston broads of 1990 may be considered "uptight frosty b*tches", and some of the "least attractive" females in the US, I also believe that "Frogs" of the same period, and certainly earlier, may well be considered as "lecherous perverts".


    That said, apparently France has changed. According to a World Economic Forum report, "The Global Gender Gap Report, 2014" which measured 142 Nations under male vs. female, "ECONOMIC PARTICIPATION AND OPPORTUNITY", "EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT", "HEALTH AND SURVIVAL", "POLITICAL EMPOWERMENT"

    France placed 16th, Canada 19th, the US 20th, the UK 26th, that's outstanding!

    See the whole 395 page report at:
    http://www3.weforum.org/docs/GGGR14/...eport_2014.pdf

    For comparative purposes, out of 115 countries rated under the same criteria in the first such report back in 2006, France placed 70th overall; not bad I guess, considering French women didn't get the vote until 1944!

    There'll be a test tomorrow, come prepared.

    Marc, why Quebec? He can play Jr. not much further away in Ontario i.e. OHL, where language won't be an issue. The Peterborough Petes are just down the road from me, even European kids can adapt, they're taken in and well taken care of. If it has to be Quebec, Montreal is closer to NYC and he may get away with limited French, like most P.Q. Anglophones do, even Mike Bossy overcame his adolescence and made the NHL.

    And there's always Ottawa/Hull, my Aunt's lived there for years, she's a former nun, got a B.A. in her 50's and she's a regular Drill Sgt. when it comes to the French language.

    Eo so italiano: eo dovuto sapere quello che cosa vostra gente diceva dietro mie spalda.

    [Edited to add] At second glance, that looks more Spanish than Italian.

    Я знаю что русский тоже. Я узнал об этом в церкви.
