Got a better idea? Leave it in the comments!

  1. Martine: danse dans danse danse danse pu! En signe de détresse on branle un peu les fesses… à gauche… à droite… ou! c’est un SOS!

    Hahahaha! Un classique à faire connaître à ton anglo (le mien est habitué déjà…). Ensuite on passera à Vis ta vinaigrette! :-)

  2. Advice yo’ momma may have gave you?

    Even under normal circumstances, there’s not a subtle way to get out of a bean bag chair.

  6. What I wanna know is: Why is the guy is shaking his arm twice as fast as the woman is? You know, now that I write it down, it sounds, um, rude.

  7. Clearly it says “Men say goodbye and go right; women say goodbye and go left; wheelchair users, this is your washroom.” ;-)

  8. What on Earth happened to you? Over two weeks without a post? You’re being twittered away.

  9. Yeah, I’ve been over distracted and undermotivated. I keep coming up with ideas for blog posts, but they’re elaborate and would take like two hours to research and write, and I find myself unable to conjure the desire to do so. Maybe it will come back…
