Bo's sheep has been hanging out at La Mom's place. With Big Cheese actually.
The French do this really annoying thing when they speak. Not only do they suck in air at the same time they say "oui", they baaaa like sheep!
Questions cannot be answered without inserting a "baaaaa" at the beginning of the sentence. The American equivalent is probably an "Uhh."
Here are some examples overheard recently chez nous. See how annoying it is to be at the receiving end of a sheep baaaaa?
La Mom: Coffee, tea, or me?
Big Cheese: Baaaaa. Café.
La Mom: Wrong answer!
La Mom: St. Tropez or Corsica for summer vacation?
Big Cheese: Baaaaa. Neither. Too many nouveaux riches Russians in St. Trop' and too many Corsicans in Corsica.
La Mom: What did Daddy Sarkozy have to say about the economic stimulus plan?
Big Cheese: Baaaa. Not much. Work more to earn more.
La Mom: Did you see Carla Bruni on the cover of FHM almost naked?
Big Cheese: Baaaa. Leaving now to buy a copy!
La Mom: Baaaa. What?
La Mom: Champagne or wine?
Big Cheese: Baaaaa. Baaaa. Baaaa. Baaaa. Champagne.
La Mom: What took you so long to decide? You've been drinking the stuff since you were 6!
Get the picture?
