Votre Franšais est merde


I've been accused of being a snob on this point, but dammit--
I get angry!

If you're going to give your business a French name, learn how to spell the damn name!

We Americans don't have accents in our language, so when encountered with a "borrowed" term, we just stick apostrophes in there randomly, rather than trying to figure out where those
a'c'c'e'n't's g'o.

Except the French term "La Vie" (The life)  doesn't even HAVE any accents in its spelling, much less any apostrophes!!!!
