TWT Staff Knows One French Thing

A TWT headline writer, as imagined by FBDC.

Looks like the headline writers at The Washington Times could stand to learn more French.

Dec 31:
Sacrebleu! French slap 75 percent tax on millionaires

Jan 29:
Sacrebleu! Damage control after France’s job czar claims the country is ‘bankrupt’

Feb 11:
Sacrebleu! At 2,500 calories, state dinner menu is triple Michelle’s ‘healthy’ lunch

The “Sacrebleu!” was scrapped for this Oct 15 story:
ATF threatens French-style firing squad for agents who leak secrets

But was captured in social media.
Sacrebleu! ATF threatens French-style firing squad for agents who leak secrets

As a reference, FBDC has compiled a list of other French exclamations TWT staffers can use for future disparaging stories about the French. After the jump!

Sac a Merde! (Bag of S#%t!)
Putain! (Whore!)
Mon Dieu, Ces Imbéciles! (My God, These Fools!)
Ta Gueule, France! (Shut up, France!)
J’en Ai Marre Avec Ces Grenouilles! (I’ve Had It With These Froggies!)
Nique Tes Mères, Coissanteurs! (F@*k Your Mothers, Croissant-Eaters!)

You’re welcome TWT! Or should we say, “De rien.”
