Schoolgirl wins fight for French

I loved this headline on the BBC website: Schoolgirl wins fight for French

That must have been embarrassing for them. The English in World War One, then the US and friends in World War Two, and now a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Isn’t it about time the French won something for themselves? I am tipping the BBC sub editor knew exactly what they were doing when that headline was written.

French people…that reminds me of a joke:

Q: How many gears do French tanks have?

A: Four. Three reverse speeds, and first gear, just in case they are facing the wrong way.
