so i may not have actually been to paris…but i do have 4 years of french class under my belt! i know, it’s impressive, isn’t it? what’s even more impressive? how little i’ve actually retained from french class! and sadly one of the few things i remember clearly is how to say “where’s the beef?” why do i even know this? because that commercial for wendy’s happened to be popular and my teacher taught it to us the first day as a way, i’m sure, to keep everyone interested. well, wouldn’t you know it – it stuck! (and please tell me some of you know this commercial!!)
so the joke has become that when i do visit paris, one of the only things i’ll be asking is “ou est le boeuf?” – and i don’t even eat red meat!!
[hee hee, the first image is my interpretation of the lady from the wendy's commercial!]
