  1. Merci Beaucoup mon brave!. Je vais devoir acheter un journal.

    While we are all Franglais and dealing with superlatives, I think that this would be a good place to share the world’s greatest Franglais pun as created by Miles Kington. This is a letter from the Times newspaper:


    Sir, It is only right to draw attention to Miles Kington’s French Navy pun, surely the finest Franglais pun ever coined, and a worthy epitaph for the man.

    The French Navy, he claimed, had adopted a new, uplifting slogan, to spur its seamen on to valour and glory in France’s hour of need. “To the water! The hour has come!”.

    Or, in French: “A l’eau. C’est l’heure!”

    We know that phoneticism

  2. Merci beaucoup indeed. It has taken me on and off since yesterday morning to get to the end of this casse-tete – although taken many years ago, the old French A-level did come in handy. Thanks for the excellent weekend diversion. I think the Franglais clues were my favourites.
