Happy Bastille Day (s' Eve)!
This morning I ate me some crepes, listened to some Francomusique (Serge, Carla Bruni and Stereo Total) and took in some French culture. By "French Culture" I mean this video with Gainsbourg and his prepubescent daughter Charlotte:
I tried to get my French housemate to explain.
Me: So explain to me this "Lemon Incest."
Amelie: Well, eez like, "Lemon Zest," but instead, "Incest", you know, because 'e is 'er father.
Me: Oh, thanks for explaining. Did people like this video? Did he loose any fans?
Amelie: Yes, eet was popular. 'E did not lose fans, they were just like, "Eez a reely crasi guy!" 'E used to go on TV and burn money. I donno."
