Wasn't there an effort in France a few years back to eliminate English in advertising?

Just some sad news. Well, for some of you.

Father of Nutella dies.

Y'all needs to eat your bacon sans Nutella from now on.

...or maybe somebody else can take over the production?
Wow ... I missed that one.

I don't know how exactly that I missed that one, but it happened. Merde.

Oui. There's a lot of resistance to the dominating influence of English ... if an ad contains an "English slogan" (like " Image. Change.* ") there will/might be an asterisk attached to it and below the translation in French at the bottom of the advert. People use words like "computer" instead of the French word "ordinateur" and Fre-nglish is sometime rampant. It's sometimes funny to me at times all the variations and mis-matches that can come up ...

Just for fun ... and page 1,000

Just for English, not for Italian or Spanish? That's just not really -- fair.

He's got 348 posts there. Can you imagine someone having over 300 posts in one thread?
