It’s also fun to listen and see if I can recognize a single word of the French. I could. Understand a single word, that is. Exactly one word. And I can’t use that one when I go to Paris this summer.

    I love this vid. I saw it a few months ago (probably because EC or LN pointed me towards it). Tres cool. 🙂 (BTW…this is Jess. My online name is musicahumana. Geeky, huh?)

    Someone posted it on the AMS list recently amidst all the chatter about “my beauty is better than your beauty” and “these kids today are spoiled.”
