What a fun surprise! John from By the Bayou has sent a lovely selection of ugly tour bus photos from the mean streets of Paris, proving that these atrocious vehicles may after all be the international language. Quel domage!
You can click all of these for a larger view. Oh, look! Here's another one:
This one struck me as unusual:
Why? Well, who's that on the side? Take a closer look:
Why it's that rascal Goethe! Based on Tischbein's portrait:
What's Goethe doing on a tour bus in Paris? Beats me. That painting doesn't live in France, either. And one more:
See? The French are just like us! Tasteless! Thanks a million, John!
I wanna ride Lolli.
Oh, Karen... you've been trying to ride Lolli for years, but she's really not that type.
These aren't French tour buses, but Freedom ones, aren't they??
the really hideous ones are from Germany.
I saw a Fücker bus in Düsseldorf.
The top one..is that a fucking mosquito?
I like the second one with the bubbles..so sue me.
The rest are atrocious or just weird.
Pony -- Edition is a feminine noun. It should be l'édition française.
You are a bad frog & will never turn into a prince.
Can't tell you how disappointed I am.
Still love you though.
PSP: I WOULD RIDE AVEC DUSTY ON THE BUBBLY BUS! FESTIVE, AND NOT SO DEUTSCHDRAB! THANK YOU FOR YOUR CULTURED CLEVERNESS........ALWAYS APPRECIATED, ALWAYS ENJOYED HERE IN KANSAS CITY.
Anonymous, I think we need a moderator, because I'm pretty sure my usage is correct.
This one from a bus in Bolivia beats all of them:
Greetings, O Princess Sparkle Pony. Just blew by your immaculately well appointed stable. I was totally en passant and feeling a tad listless till the color thing kicked in. Absolutely adore the way the pink strip on the habemayr exclusiv blends with your site background.
Do you have any snaps of The Remarkable Miss C tickling the ivories? I so do love it when Condoleezza gets down and boogies. On a good day, she can be simply stunning.
French is not by best language but I think française is correct. Please don't smite me with your glittery hooves of wrath.
Shot in Paris, but most (all? not enough evidence) are not French. They're German and misc central/eastern European.
Unsurprisingly. Like most Europeans, the French don't usually tour their own country in coaches. People from other countries do.
And to top off this carnival of pedantry - it's "quelle dommage".
"édition" is fem, so it should be "Française"; "dommage" is masc, so "quel dommage" is correct.
French/German - apparantly, the Germans loooove vactions, and they love to go to France. which horrifies the proper French, because Germans are loud and goofy and travel in hoards like Americans.
Well that does it... no more cutesy fake French for this pony!
