My hubby mentioned that he was talking about really bad French mispronunciations with some of his colleagues. The best (worst?) one was some guy from Louisiana who said he'd been to a restaurant that had really good "horse divers."
That's "hors d'oeuvres" for the rest of us.
My mother knew someone who called them 'horse's doovers.' To us children that sounded like something that we probably weren't allowed to say, so - naturally - we took every opportunity to say it.ReplyDelete
