    Many people don’t realise how many food-related words are in fact French. Serviette and napkin (a tablecloth is a “nappe”) are both French in origin and don’t have an English equivalent.

    English has a nasty habit of stealing new words from old languages. But there are still a few expressions we need (again from French, “l’esprit d’escalier,” or “coming up with a damaging comeback far too late for it to be of any effect”).

    Nice gag today. The Born Loser is one of the most underrated strips around.

    But I don’t want any of that French champagne, only American champagne for me. And throw in some french fries while you’re at it.

    Nonsense! English doesn’t have a ‘nasty habit’ of stealing new words from old languages, English permanently borrows them when convenient.

    It works the other way too. In France they have “hot dogs”. Ironically in Quebec the language police have forced people to call them “chiens chaud” even though the real French people don’t care!

    I love people who think they’re clever when they’re really just explaining the joke that everyone else already gets…
