Smoking is bad… M’kaaaay?

So I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine this evening. He asked me if I speak French… And a memory was triggered, so I thought I’d write about it. :) (Point of Fact: I do speak French.)

So I have this friend, who shall remain nameless because we’re not actually allowed to be friends because well, women are crazy. Anyway… We will call him…. Umm… *ponders*… We’ll call him Anon. So Anon and I are pretty good friends. We’ve known each other for a long, long time. And Anon has a little daughter who had recently started French Immersion, and he wanted to learn French. So I was helping him out a bit and teaching him some things.

So anyway… Anon and I were out for dinner one night, and then I drove him back to his Hotel (he was staying in my town for work.) and he had had a few drinks, so I walked with him back to his hotel room to make sure he got there ok (get your minds out of the gutter). When Anon drinks, he smokes. So he had taken his cigarette package out and decided he was going to read the warning label. He read it aloud in English first. Then he read it aloud in French.

For a point of reference, here’s the label (and no you don’t need to know French to find this amusing…):

So… He’s reading out the French as we’re walking towards the Hotel… Now, the word for “blood” in French is “Sang”… The word for “monkey” in French is “Seinge”…. He pronounced “sang” as “seinge”.

Read the label. Replace “Blood” with “Monkey”.


There you go. :) I laughed SO HARD. I was crying, and gasping, and I honestly doubled over in the middle of the parking lot because I couldn’t stop laughing. And he was standing there going “What?” “What?!” … “What?!!” and I’m all “*GASPS* You said… *GASPS* …. You said…. “Cigarettes may cause sexual impotence due to decreased monkey flow to the penis!”


Ah yes… Good times.
