CARTOON ANSWER: TEACHING RUDE STUDENTS TO SAY “THANK YOU” IN FRENCH CLASS MADE HER – – –
ROFGEIMBCRE = BEG FOR “MERCI”
Good Morning, Everyone! 🇫🇷 FRENCH….ROAST? 🇫🇷
🎶Whoa, ah, MERCI, MERCI me…Oh things ain’t what they used to be, no no…🎶….(Yes, I did just use this on Wednesday…If only I knew…)
🇫🇷 Teaching French to children can prove to be quite tough
Especially if kids are feeling they have had enough…
With distraction and misbehaving making children rude
It’s easy for a teacher to lose patience and to brood…
These kids can be quite NIMBLE, though with learning they don’t budge…
They start to fool around…you’ve lost them..Now what? Say “Oh FUDGE“?
She’s trying to get through to them but seems to be left out
The kids are just ignoring her…it’s like she’s mixing GROUT
The air is thick with noisiness, how much more can she take?
Perhaps that CARAFE she should grab and take a coffee break?
A simple please and thank you, she’d just like them to see…
But it looks like she’ll be forced to just BEG FOR “MERCI”! 🇫🇷
NIMBLE was easy to move past, and FUDGE went down just as well. One might get STUCK on GROUT, and CARAFE? A farce? We’ve reached the end of our week, and today’s anagrams are some of David’s best. On to our cartoon…Back in the classroom today, we see three students misbehaving and giving a harried teacher a run for her FRANCS! She’s trying to teach some basic FRENCH phrases to an unreceptive group. Trying to get them to say “Thank you” which is MERCI in French, she’s getting nothing from them but rudeness. One student, mimicking a scene from Monty Python and The Holy Grail, (while wearing a T-Shirt depicting the Rabbit of Caerbannog the Killer Rabbit), seems to be the ringleader. He’s getting the attention the teacher should be...SACRE BLEU! Obviously frustrated, we see her pleading with the students to settle down…she’s BEGGING them…Our question asks…Trying to teach “Thank You” in French to these rude students made her…BEG FOR “MERCI“! Now here we have play on words! Can it get any more clever than this? But, the real question is…Have we seen anything like this before? A foreign word, albeit a familiar one used in the Jumble? I’m not sure…If anyone knows, please write in and let us know, ok? MERCI! Ok, eye candy. We’ve already covered the T-Shirt. Evil little rabbit surrounded by skulls. Definitely not at the HEAD of my list…Neither HARE nor there…And we see a marker for WRITING on the board…but it’s not RIGHT either. That leaves the teachers pendant, which is rather indistinct. So I guess today the solution will be going with what we don’t see. Monty Python is very well-known in France and the Holy Grail is the most well-known Monty Python movie. These movies are regularly studied in French schools during English lessons. I guess this is Jeff’s way of telling us he’s a fan… A British comedy group, a French word in our puzzle…Is anyone else begging for MERCI today? So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone. And THANK YOU for stopping by…🇫🇷 🙋🏻
