Dirty French, Everyday Slang from “What’s Up?” to “F*%# Off!” was hilarious. The opening paragraph warns that this isn’t a beginner’s grammar book but a book designed to take your French to the next level. I’ve only had 1 year of French and this was over 18 years ago so that had me worried. Yes, my accent was very rusty, but I got though it and even if you don’t know any French at all you’d still find the sayings and musings in between delightfully funny.
This book includes phrases for every situation, including expressions for describing art that make one sound smart and cool. Use sweet words to entice a local beauty into a walk along the Seine, and less-then-philosophical rebuffs for those overly zealous, espresso-fueled cafe "poets." There are enough insults and swear words to offend every person in France without even speaking to them in English, which they really dislike.
Some of my favorites are below. I will censor to keep it clean but the book doesn’t and that makes it half the fun!!
• Whoops! You’re not my boyfriend. – Zut! T’es pas mon mec.
• Don’t S&#@ your pants! – Te chie pas!
• Did your girlfriend just fart? – C’est ta copine qu’a pet?
• My French boyfriend is a horndog. – Mon copain francais est un queuetard.
There are 9 chapters in the book so stick French after each of these words and you’ll get an idea of the awesome amount of swear words and dirty phrases you can learn: Howdy, Friendly, Party, Body, Horny, Angry, Poppy, Sporty and Hungry. (hey, that sounds like a new Snow White movie. LOL)
Oh and you can even learn to send Dirty French texts such as... "VTFF”
To find out what that means, I guess you’ll have to buy the book.
