Joe Bloggs

Today we had our end of term lunch with the volunteers of the Restos de Coeur. As usual it was a very festive occasion, starting soon after midday and ending at 5.30, and punctuated with the usual songs and dressing up. We chatted to a French lady we had not met before, but who had spent many years in the UK with her English husband. She was explaining the difficulties she experienced with our language. On one occasion, at an important luncheon, people started talking about Joe Bloggs, and she was naturally rather confused. She had never heard of him, but he was repeatedly mentioned by lots of people, so, being a quite confident lady, she demanded “why do you English talk so much about Blow Jobs?” !!!
