Funny word


After the usual Friday night viewing of one of the Olsen Twins movies on Gulli (tonight it was some kind of Wild West story), another program started.

I was busy posting on the blog, so not really paying attention to the show, which was a National Geographic Junior show about Seals. But they started saying the word seal a lot, so it caught my attention.

The word for seal in French is "Phoque." Just say that out loud in your best French accent.

It kind of ruins my image of a cute seal lying on the beach or swimming around in a pool at Sea World.
