I love how potato in French is pomme de terre, which pretty much means “earth apple.”
like what stupid frenchman saw this:
and said “zis petite légume looks like a, how you say, APPLE! hmmm… but it grows in ze earth… HON HON HON! MAIS OUI! C’EST UNE POMME DE TERRE!”
j’adore comment ananas se dit pineapple en anglais, ce qui veut littéralement dire “pomme de pin”, genre quel type anglais a vu ça:
et s’est dit : “ow cette étrange big fruit ressemble à une, how do you say, POMME! hmmm… mais plutôt une pomme qui pousse dans les pins… HU HU HU! OH YES, IT’S A PINEAPPLE!”
(z’avez vu, on peut le faire aussi… hon hon hon!)
i always see posts making fun of quatre-vingt-dix-neuf meaning 99 and the French numeric system in general
but have you ever seen the French for What is that?
it’s qu’est-ce que c’est? and it literally translates to
what is this that this is?
Every time someone types “lmao” I imagine a french cat.

In France we say “les anglais ont débarqué” which means “The English have landed” to talk about having our periods. This is really funny because it goes back to the time Napoleon lost in Waterloo in 1815 against the English and then they went to France to occupy. The english soldiers had red uniforms and the people hated so much the english that they used them to talk about periods. The feud France/England is so funny, everyone is so bitter
