petite anglaise

competition time

Filed under: french touch — petiteanglaiseparis @ 12:13 pm

I saw a t-shirt like the above on a middle aged French lady yesterday. Non-english speakers seem to be willing to wear anything with English words on, blissfully unaware of what they might be advertising/whether the words make any sense whatsoever/or mean something dirrty.

If anyone can enlighten me as to whether there is a sports team in Eastham (Cape Cod, US) sponsored by readymix (concrete?) I’d be most grateful.

Describe the most inappropriate/ridiculous/nonsensical t-shirt you have spotted on a French person in the comments box below. Best entry wins a petite anglaise thong.

even classier


  1. Well this doesn’t have anything to do with a tshirt or a french person, however your prize reminded me of something I ran into while in the university bookstore a few weeks before i graduated.

    The school’s name is *now* Arcadia Uni. It used to be Beaver College. Apparently the admin thought it to be a good idea *good advertising maybe* to have the school logo (AU’s not BC’s) on thongs.

    Apparently they really don’t want to give up their heritage.

  2. There’s a bar at the London School of Economics called, “The Beaver’s Retreat”.

    Sorry, again not a competition entry! However, I doubt your thong would fit me, or that I’d wear it.

  3. I did see a middle-aged woman on the Cote du Granite Rose, wearing a very middle-aged style blouse covered with what appeared to be cut up diary (or even weblog) entries. I was following her around trying to read them, but had to desist eventually for fear of getting arrested. For the same reason, I couldn’t take a photograph. Sorry, no quotes, but it was all quite personal.
