@ harald: :lol:

Now, with one asterisk gone, I must puzzle about "ar*es".

What next ? An obelisk appearing ? "ar*es" ?

Perhaps you could explain your laughter Mme Fournell, for I do not share either yours, or Harald's high IQ and I simply do not understand the joke?
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.

Here we go, Vicomte, instead of answering my question first you already ask another one...

And it is to your greatest honour that you love my wife to the point of interrogating her directly after having noticed dubious affairs which might be going on between Harald and me!

This is truly admirable benevolence at its best.

(Please forgive a jealous husband for being nosey, but has she sent a reply as yet?)

Oh dear, that really is such a rather sad post. I have no compulsion to do such a thing but I do claim the right to answer those that reply to me.

Surely someone with such good English as yours proves to be, would know the missing letter? I beg your pardon and apologise but as you are fully aware, to much of the English speaking World, Jean can be John, or simply as it looks, Jean, I appear to have mistaken your name as feminine and not masculine, falsely believing that you were a British woman married to a Frenchman.

So with that apology in mind, can you tell me what the joke was please, I have re-read it and still cannot find the joke?

Just in case the word has never entered your vocabulary, it was of course, arses.

It was GB arses telescoped with USA asses, giving arsses.
I pinpointed your initial double asterisk in order for you to reconsider your post; and you corrected the typo.

Vicomte, presuming that English is not your mother tongue, I have decided to give you the benefit of doubt in what concerns your affair with my wife. (You'll appreciate of course that this does cost me quite an effort.)
And therefore I accept your apology.
Izœn't it.

As for your asking me to explain the joke, my answer is no.

First, for the following reasons: blablablablablabla-bla, jokes cannot be explained.
(That's the official version.)

Second, you and I know these reasons, otherwise there would be no fun for you in asking me to explain, nor for me in refusing. Refusing for the simple reason that you are asking me. Innocent as I am.
The name of this second point is "The world is big, strong, and unfair".
(That's the inofficial version, but which still can be told to the ears of youth. Children love to see that even adults sometimes know a thing or two.)

Third, McMurphy in "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" has a good reason not to reveal how his uncle Hallahan finally nailed his wife's beak shut: one never knows if one won't need the trick oneself one day.
(Honesty requires me to let you know that I am a thorough cheat. Well, I hereby grudgingly do.)

Firstly old chap, as suspected, you have not got a clue why you laughed, it is very French to laugh at nothing, they see it as etiquette but some are truly bonkers.

Secondly, the British, you know, the race that everyone in France calls les anglais, not knowing there are other countries within the British name but there you go but there is a phrase that comes to mind when you read such tripe (from Caen I believe) and the phrase is, "What a load of bollocks".

(Sorry, no asterisks this time, as it would mean explaining it all again)

Hi
Perhaps it's time to focus on the main subject of this thread again instead of keeping this argument going on and on... So please read the title if this thread again and give your opinion if you want.
Thanks!

I don't think Maarten is trying to put an end to this conversation, regensburg - just trying to bring the discussion back to its original focus.

One of my biggest disappointments with this forum is how some people here seem to see discussion of anything as treason!
And this in a forum dedicated to such an open-minded individual as Leonard Cohen.

I am an LC fan and I come here to be informed and sometimes entertained but there are some truly stupid and worthless posts which actively discourage me from looking at the forum on a regular basis. I dont post often but this exchange is pretty pathetic!

You don't post often?
Suggest you look up the meaning of the word "often".

You use your first ever post here to criticize those who have bothered to engage in discussion, rather than contributing something of interest yourself?

Now that's what I call, in your words, "pathetic"!
