"The 1960s Jackie Gleason film "Gigot," in which he played a mute Frenchman, was pronounced "zhee-go"
Frankly, I think I like "giggott" better, just as I liked "jiggly" for that Affleck-Lopez stinker from a while back.
Yessss, thank you. I knot.
Is that really spoken English? LOL
"On the Internet, people in the UK and Europe always used to argue that they didn't need to have freedom of speech and freedom of the press in their constitutions because they weren't in danger without them being spelled out..."
Hmmm, recent rulings of the US Supreme Court make me wonder whether spelling things out in a constitution is worth the effort.
Another page in France's "Brilliant Ideas".
"Is that really spoken English? LOL"
Yep. By white folks, no less. The black folks have Gullah, which is even more unintelligible, but sounds prettier.
"I seem to recall this writer being heavily praised by certain liberals pre-9-11; I definitely recall her books being given lots of room in bookstores, as she could be seen as a feminist by those who choose to see everything in that way. Funny how I don't seem to see such attention from those corners these days."
Ms Falacci is one of those who came over from the dark side. She was a Socialist before she saw the light.
She was always an excellent journalist and interviewer.
To heck with them, and I'm being polite in my language. Enough already.
Just don't try order anything at a Boston sub shop or a NY deli with that lingo :)
Yup, I already ordered it on Amazon. She is an amazing writer, very clear and cohesive, good common sense springing from years of living history. It is quite an honor, really, to make the Muzzies mad enough to take you to court. Way to go, Oriana.
New book -- you can order it ahead, on Amazon, but it is not yet released. Comes out soon, tho. Should be good.
"Just don't try order anything at a Boston sub shop or a NY deli with that lingo :)"
I wouldn't even try. I only "know" a little of it due to summer jobs down around Florence, Marion and Summerville while in college. It's easier to understand than speak for me.
I'd bet money she appreciates/enjoys being an "infidel" to those folks today..........
i already ordered the book--Screw the french and screw the muslims(very intelligent ,i know,but it's what is called for here)
It doesn't sound as bad in French.
