The French word for a wanker is, interestingly, andouille. Though being of a classical bent I called him an onaniste.
My francophilia is so profound that I must say 'Bravo' to the contemptuous bouquiniste. Obviously I'm less keen on pointless philosophical procrastination when, say, I need a piece of paper from the mairie
and I'm required to prove the existence of the solar system before I can have it. But from a distance, it's great.
What's wrong with good old branleur
You should hear the names our neighbour calls his cows. Quite an education. Andouille point was that someone on here likes them. Pervert. Francophilia has limits, after all.
Our mairie is wonderful - shared with another village - only open on Tuesday afternoons. M le maire is a complete buffoon, secretary is a very capable matron.
Have you ever looked at the Brits in France forums?
