I want my Frog TV: I’m surprised I haven’t seen more blog levity over this: Jacques Chirac asking for media companies to propose starting a French news channel: snail TV.
It’s great to see the healthy, cleansing winds of war sweep away the cloying miasma of political correctness that has so enfeebled the language of public discourse in recent years. “Frog TV”…that’s putting the bastards in their place. May I suggest replacing references to al-Jazeera with “The Rag Head Network”? And you no doubt noted Desmond Tutu’s criticism of Bush, shamelessly and treacherously broadcast last week on SABC: can we call them “NigVision”, huh?
What’s French for “Take a chill pill, my friend”?
P.S. My idea was “Must-Oui TV.”
“Prenez un…ummm…pillule de refroidissement, mon ami.”
