Un Petit Franglais.

I’ve been getting some visits from La Baffe, Lorraine recently. This is very edifying, but the problem is that every time I see ‘La Baffe,’ I also see the word ‘barf.’

So then I remember an actress friend’s anecdote of how she was outside a Geordie nightclub, having had one purple vodka too many, and was followed by another girl who asked (you have to imagine the Geordie accent here) ‘Are y’allright, pet? Are ya puk’n?’

And then I come full circle and wonder whether the French equivalent would be

‘Comment ca va, cherie? Pukez vous?’
