If le gateau était assez bon pour Marie Antoinette et le grand unwashed, alors, it est assez bon pour vous

Remember to never use the word "petit" when conversing with a French man, they do not like it. :think: :smile:

It certainly would: the waiter would only understand the first part and bring you coffee as they usually serve it, which is without milk anyway. (Unless s/he decided that you probably wanted milk, on the basis that you're a foreigner and foreigners are known to be a bit strange. :grin:)

I have a lactose intolerance. I go out of my way to consume extra dairy when I go to France. God knows they deserve it.

The thread title made me think of this little exchange from The Wedding Party episode of Fawlty Towers

Basil: Et maintenant - un peu de cafe?
Mrs Peignoir: Ah, oui, s'il vous plait. Cafe au lait.
Basil: Cafe what?
Mrs Peignoir: Au lait.
Basil: Ah! Cafe... ole!
...
Basil: There we are. Voila sommes nous. Cafe pour vous.
Mrs Peignoir: "Vous"? Pas "pour toi"?
Basil: No, I'll probably have one later.
Mrs Peignoir: (laughs gaily) Oh, that's very funny!
Basil: Oh, good, good.

No,

I put this into google translate:

I hate stupid French milk, do you get it from pigs? It makes me sick, where can I get normal English milk in this shit country?

It amused me thinking of the reaction you would get saying that in France with an honest look on your face if no one else :P

Theses is a pig lover. Not an actual lover of cochons, you understand. 'Lover' as in the noun not the verb. He has, I believe, some rare breeds. So he says 'I hate stupid French milk, do you collect pigs?'. Ummm not sure whether that helps or not.

Google often has trouble with English to French pronouns and vice versa. "Le recueillez-vous des porcs?" is what you meant.

Well I was way off as usual. I look like a slapped arse, but at least I'm stupid.

That explains it, then. Google translate performs slightly worse at simple translation tasks than a drunk monkey banging away on a keyboard. It is very creative though. It translated "English milk" into "milk in English". :whistle:
