Warped Definitions of French Towns
My work was at a standstill this morning, and I was reading the post about beautiful small towns in France. Some lend themselves to some strange definitions. Such as:

Le Baux - Used in conjunction with Le Arrow
Agrippa - Guy who works on a movie set in Italy
Uzes - Used by gang members here in L.A.
Gordes - A great place to buy pumpkins
Angers - A town where you never look back
Reims - Without them, there would be no reasons
Riquewehr - Clothing line by Mr. Steves
Bayeux - Where you always feel blue
Saumar - A marshmellow treat or additional things such as, "I want Saumar Saumars."
La Grasse - Why it took me five years to graduate from college.
Baynac - What they call a Barry Bonds home run in San Francisco.
Mejannes Le Clap - What you get by dating the wrong girl in Mejannes.
Toulouse - Definition of that girl in Mejannes.
Dunkirque - What Spock said to the Captain after completing a task.
Valence - Where they shot Liberty.
Rouen - An old French building
Nice - A Frenchman's sister's daughter
Amiens - What a French congregation says after the prayer.
Nancy - French comic strip about a little girl.
Aix - a divorcée in Provence
Tours - busses loaded with foreigners in sweat suits.
Metz - A really bad French baseball team
Lunéville - a town full of crazy people
Crappone - a French toilet

Oh no, my work has finally showed up. I bid you all au revoir for now.

Tarascon - What Scarlett said when she saw her plantation in ruins.

Pau - Writer of Le Raven
Vichy - Not legit; suspicious

"Tarascon - What Scarlett said when she saw her plantation in ruins."

I knew this would spawn some other ones. Very good.

Very funny...merci beaucoup!

My favorite: Riquewehr - Clothing line by Mr. Steves (don't tempt him!)

Dordogne, the carpenter said after finishing the entrance. Then he waved and said Arles be seeing you.

Sorry Tom, I couldn't resist. Thanks for the laugh!

"Clothing line by Mr. Steves (don't tempt him!)"

Yikes. It's bad enough to run into a flock of his followers, but what if they all looked alike, too? They'd be the Stepford Steves'.

I suppose mentioning the little Midi town of Condom is out of line? Government by crooks? Or something else?

(BTW, the real town is "twinned" - sister city - with the Spanish town of Toro. Strong like bull.)

Menton: Ville des Hommes Lourds

I Nevers thought this thread would end so soon. Are there Nemours ideas?

Honfleur - Where a bee spends much of its time.

rex Apr 8th, 2004 03:37 PM

Paris - - married to Ma Ris
Bruxelles - - what the beer vendor wanted to see more of
Talloires - - what Rick's 7 foot brother plans to market
Annecy - - what Lawrence Welk got, on his report card, in addition to "an A, an' a B"
Beaune - - the very best kind of china.

Best wishes,
