    Ahaha, my grade 11 French teacher was this old quebecois dude, he was in his 60s and liked to be "that old guy that annoys you young whippersnappers" and frequently told us stories of himself going to le discotheque when he was young lol. "~Aah le discotheque"

    I had a college professor who said that the French viewed the Quebecois as the Francophonic equivalent of hillbillies back in the '70s; among other things, a Frenchman asking if you were Canadian when you spoke French was a passive-aggressive way they had of insulting your accent.

    Have they lightened up on that?

    Well, as a Canadian who didn't learn the québécois accent I'll tell you that I can't understand it at all, but I bet that other French speaking countries have their own unique take on speaking French as well, right. Like I'll make fun of my native Trinidadian speakers cuz the way they speak English is often hilarious.

    So yeah I'd assume that people from France still look down on the québécois accent, even as a Canadian its it's almost gibberish. No offence to my Québécois homeboys. Your poutines are still great.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---



    I only understood 50% of that. Oh yeah and TABERNAC! Is a swear word. I think I remember learning that a lot of québécois swear words were related to church.. That was a cool teacher.

    Quebec French lacks a load of Algonquin and Choctaw loanwords, making it the inferior of the two main bastard French languages in the New World.

    Québécois profanity aside, I think the best experience I had was in grade 1 when we were learning animal names in French and we came upon "seal" -> "phoque".

    I remember the mischievous glee as we all looked at each other and were like "PHOQUE! PHOQUE! What? It means seal"

    Ahh French Immersion was great.

    France has real problems with being stuck up purist assholes about a pure form of the French language WITHIN France let alone outside of it.
    Ask anyone who grew up speaking other languages like Occitan or Provencal. And the sad story of Breton.

    Alabama is apparently deciding to provide all the horrible garbage tantrum throwing and rampant legal bigotry that has been sorely lacking in gay marriage entering red states thus far.

    Really cool how many info outlets seem dead set on trying to pretend this wasn't an incredibly likely hate crime by saying it was a "parking dispute" when so much culture is heavily enforcing violence against muslims!

    When are the white leaders going to address the ongoing violence that white thugs are perpetrating
