French phrase Ts  

post #1 of 30

Does anyone know of someplace (this side of the Atlantic) where I could procure some t-shirts with French words or phrases on them, preferably offensive/profane? The idea of announcing to any passerby something rather rude, without their knowledge, appeals deeply to my subversive side...

If you really don't want people to understand perhaps you should try Sanskrit. Or better yet, Sogdian or Neo-Bactrian or something. I mean, if you want to be the pretentious ass you claim you are...

This is not a bad idea, but said Ts would be even more difficult to acquire. Besides, the French language has, for non-native speakers, a delightful inherent pomposity.

Latin would be best, after all: Quid quid latine dictum sit, altum viditur

Latin would be good too, but French has that bit of hipster spice to it that's always fun to dabble in. In related news, after a several-year hiatus, my school has finally decided to renounce its Philistinian stance and resume Latin classes year after next, just in time for my planned schedule to not permit me to take it.

Ernest should be able to provide you with some delightfully whimsical little phrases. LE MARRON EST POUR LE FERMIER. LES SOULIERS DE CROCODILE SONT POUR LES GANGSTERS. Malheureusement telles choses seraient même plus dures à acquérir.

Hardly. It's Max Fischer from Wes Anderson's film Rushmore. Edward Appleby is another character in (talked about and alluded to, actually) the film.

I'm beginning to think that I should just have them custom-made.

Seriously? That would be great. It'll probably be in a couple of months, when I get some money in.

Well, sure why not. If you send me the shirt and pay like $20 extra for the screen, other materials and the 4-5 hours it takes to make one. Hell, I'll design it for free, because I like designing. PM me in a couple months or whatever and we'll talk.

Most losers or "wannabes" tend to use or incorporate foreign languages in their vocabulary in order to impress their audience. French being my first language, I think that it is so sad when i hear loser english people using french expressions to sound intelligent and sophisticated, which to any french speaker makes them look like a complete moron. T-SHIRTS WITH FRENCH SWEARS OR INSULTS DO NOT MAKE YOU COOL BUT RATHER A SAD SAD PATHETIC PEASANT

I'm not planning to wear the damn thing around France. Also, French words have been incorporated into English since 1066 (and before.) Mostly, I'm doing it to have a bit of fun with the "FRANCE SUCKS OLOLO..1111 LOL THEY EET CHEEZ...111" folks, who will naturally assume that anyone with French on his shirt is clearly a homosexual, or worse, a liberal, and will be ignorant of the fact that in fact I'm expressing, perhaps, a rather saucy intention towards his mother.
