Moose and Grapefruit: A linguistic public service announcement

Through occasional checking of SiteMeter, I've discovered that my blog gets some rather odd hits based on Google searches.

Consider this a public service announcement for those hunters:

The French word for moose is "orignal", which is a masculine noun - so one would refer to "un orignal".

Also, if you want to say in French that you are sorry, but you don't speak French, you would say "Je suis désolé, mais je ne parle pas français."

Finally, the French word for grapefruit is "un pamplemousse".

That's all. Go about your business. I'm not finding tons to post about during the summer silly season.

This is good cyber karma. For a series of tubes, the internet sure can drop people off in the wrong spot.
