C’est Ironique Sign of the Weeque
This week’s regrettable use of English on a French shop sign is not the name of the business (thankfully) but rather one of its products — the featured flavor at an ice cream parlor on Rue des Martyrs. Somehow it doesn’t sound quite as tempting as the “Cherry Garcia” at Ben & Jerry’s.
Have you seen a ridiculous sign in Paris? Or anywhere in France? Send me a photo in care of firstname.lastname@example.orgFavorite
