Sorry, but I need you to say it in that announcer-y voice. Anyway, it’s Friday, it’s November-almost-December, it’s gray, and all my sports are out of season. So it’s time for another edition of this, this time with no video, just this handy still from a story on new Parisian spas (I don’t know about the pink tint, I think it’s the lighting in the spa). I tried to caption it, I really did, but it only makes my head explode. It’s not just the statement but the glow in the spa-lady’s eyes. So, I will just share it with you as is. Have a good weekend, everyone!

    …and Freud spent all those years wondering what women want!

    Say, if this is also what high school girls want, that could explain my limited dating success when I was a teen. Because, honestly, I NEVER would have guessed.

    Hey Alex, back in the 80s we were into that in junior high.

    We were so progressive.

    We, the French, believe that Cleopatra used to bath in Female donkey’s (“anesse”) milk. It’s a sort of cliché here. The translation is quite literal.. I think a “wild ass” is a sort of primitive horse, no ?
    You see the level of information people get on TV nowadays. This is the national news.
    I don’t have a TV, I prefer the internet.

    Well, Alex and KP, in light of further details provided, it seems like this would, in fact, have worked in a high school in France.

    JF, I had no idea, and when I watched this, my jaw dropped open in a kind of shock. As you can see, there is no tradition of this in the US. And usually, the translation treats me as if I’m very stupid and adds in words that aren’t there like “[Justice Minister Rachida] Dati,” like I would not know who they were talking about when they picture her and say “Dati.” And yet, they didn’t explain this. Thanks!

    But, in fact, an ass here would not mean a primitive horse, but simply a donkey. Or human buttocks, which renders things even more hilarious.
