  1. aillame veri choquingue baille disse choyce.

    Il existe en France des expressions moins triviales comme :

    aller faire caca derrière un buisson
    avoir le cigare au bord des lèvres
    se pisser dessus

    et plein d’autres aussi romantiques !

  2. Now if French language classes at school had taught those alongside verbs etc. I think I might have been a bit more interested. Brilliant!

    You’re sodomising flies is my favourite.
